If you've seen Casshern and enjoyed it, or rather, where blown away by it you should like Goemon - it's very similar in look and style.
Admittedly the over the top, very obvious use of CGI in virtually every scene won't be to everyone's taste but it does make for some truly staggering cinema. And people who don't like it need to realise, there is no other way this film could be made.
The fantasy world and scenery is stunning throughout, the battles immense, the action fast paced and brilliant and the costumes absolutely beautiful.
The story, set in feudal Japan, is mainly a political one but of course it is at its heart an action or Kung fu flick. You'll find plenty to sate your bloodlust here, in a tale that mixes elements of western fables with ninjas, warlords and a master thief.
Although still great, I don't think the fight scenes in Goemon were as mind-blowing as those in Casshern, but overall I enjoyed the film more. The story had a much better pace to it and a was a lot easier to follow. And where as Casshern started to drag a bit for me in places, Goemon held my attention throughout.
This is another truly incredible film that looks and feels totally unique - just like Casshern did. And just like Casshern, it's another epic win. Astounding stuff - though admittedly, not to everyone's tastes. Fans of Manga will love it though. It's Manga brought to life.
