Movie is good, feels slightly dated and the ending of slightly confusing but still good. The copy of got was very glitchy, not sure if it was just a bad copy or not but it kept shutting down during chapter changes.

As every molecular biologist knows, the holy grail in human genetics is being able to revert a cell back to totipotency,which is activating the latent ability of a cell to turn into any other kind of human cell possible. This ability is only found in the cells of embryos, but is lost after the third or fourth division (when the embryo consists of between eight and sixteen cells).

Casshern is a 2004 Japanese film where a doctor has discovered totipotency, though the term is never used in the film and instead he calls his discovery 'neo-cells'. The events of the film happen in the near future after there's been 50 years of war between Europa and the Eastern Federation. A new federation, called 'Eurasia' is formed after the Eastern Federation wins the war. However, the war has taken a terrible toll on the environment, what with the various weapons used over the years being of the nuclear, chemical and biological varieties.

The neo-cells are seen as a way of ensuring the survival of the human race. However, after a terrible accident in the lab (are there any non-terrible lab accidents in films?), fully-formed human creatures, calling themselves neo sapiens, emerge from the neo-cell vats. The humans present during the accident immediately try to destroy the neo sapiens, but fail to do so. The neo sapiens thus are understandably bitter towards their human counterparts and eventually send out an android army to destroy them.

Amidst all this, the biologist's son is killed in the war. The biologist resurrects his son by soaking his son's body in the neo-cell vat. The son is reborn, but with super powers and becomes known as Casshern, after the name of a local deity.

The film is an interesting remake of the 1973 anime upon which it is based.

This film is very difficult to describe. It's good, very good - but will not be to everyone's taste. The story is at its heart quite basic, but delivered in a mind blowingly complex manner. Anyone with a short attention span or an aversion to sub titles should avoid this film. Others read on...
Set in the not too distant future, a lad goes off to war - leaving behind his beautiful girlfriend and against the wishes of his dad - and then gets killed (the war scenes are mish mash of many war films from All Quiet of the Western Front and Stalingrad, through too Platoon and Full Metal Jacket). Dad meanwhile is developing a form of cloning/cell engineering and accidentally creates a race of super humans, who then run riot. Dad, now gutted at loosing his son, uses this technology to resurrect him. Son then goes up against the super humans. In a nutshell that's it - but the film delivers way more than that. Did I mention the giant robots?

Visually it's outstanding, combining many different styles and moods. One minute it all anime and cyberpunk, the next gothic, then grainy black and white before flipping back to lush colour and soft focus. And then there's the stop motion animation... Stylistically it's seems to have raided just about every genre going from both Eastern and Western cinema. There are nods to Metropolis, The Matrix, Battle of the Planets and, well the list goes on.

A couple of paragraphs are not enough to do this film justice, those that are interested in sci-fi, anime or just something different will enjoy this remarkable film - buy it, you won't regret it.

You gotta see this movie it's one of the most imaginative, gripping and mindblowing movie I have ever seen. It has different themes about humanity only damaging the earth, prolonging life, war, life and death and much more. You got to see it to believe how good of a movie this is!

The video quality on the dvd is awesome and the audio is in 5.1, it really lets you hear the awesome soundtrack in full clarity. The subtitles are great but the end song isn't subtitled which is disappointing, when are they ever?

Extras
Interviews with Cast (34 minutes)
11 Deleted Scenes with commentary
8mm footage - This is flashback footage which expands on the characters background before the events of the film letting you get to know the characters better, also with commentary

While the extras are good it pails in comparison to the Asian Release which comes with more than three hours of special features not on the UK release. Another thing that annoys me is the DVD menus, they float around the place and you have to hit the button when they pass by. The only difference between this version and the other 2 disc edition is that you don't get a steelbook case, while there are some missing stuff this is a good release and I would recommend it as theres quite nothing like it. If you like this you may want to view the anime's that have been adapted and released on dvd and blu ray.
