To continue with yesterday’s anime review, this evening I watched Spriggan.
Fortunately, it was exactly what I wanted to watch tonight:
Katsuhiro Otomo (of Akira fame) provided “direction” on this film, and it shows. A number of shots are simply unnecessary; we spent a good two minutes watching the protagonist sit in various vehicles as he travels towards the massive artifact. And that didn’t even look impressive.
But the action sequences were impressive. This is a classic shonen story;
So, overall, it was a fun ride.
