The geneticist Dr. Azuma vies for support from the government for his neo-cell treatment that he claims can rejuvenate the body and regenerate humankind. The government leaders, guarding their own deeply entrenched powers, turn down the professor. Driven to complete his work, Dr. Azuma accepts a secret offer from a sinister faction of the powerful military. After an incident occurs in Dr. Azuma’s lab, a race of mutant humans known as the Shinzo Ningen are unleashed upon the world. Now only the warrior known as Casshern, reincarnated with an invincible body, stands between the Shinzo Ningen and a world on the brink of annihilation.
Plot: Fifty years of war between the Great Eastern Federation and Europa – now merged as Eurasia – have taken their toll on planet Earth. As a result of the use of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons, much of Earth has become uninhabitable and people have become prey to new diseases. Professor Azuma’s “neo-cell” project, which is supposed to be the answer to mankind’s hardships, becomes a nightmare come true when mutants spawned from the experiment escape and declare war on the human race. Azuma’s son Tetsuya, who was killed during the previous war, is reborn into the cyborg Casshern as mankind’s last hope against the new mutant threat. This live-action sci-fi movie based on a 1973 Japanese animé of the same name.

A terrible mix including the myth of Frankenstein (there is even an Igor), 1984 and the Nazi holocaust and an ultra-violent video game a la Final Fantasy, cooked for advocating in favor of world peace (?).
Also, terrible monologues, the typical Japanese over-drama and an OST to be burnt.
Just giving it some points for its aesthetic which I don’t like but I can see the effort on it, as it was also done in “300”.
This movie is one of the main reasons I decided to study film in college. It uses, CG, matte paintings, green screen, and claymation to do all the effects. It’s a very stylish take.
The story is very powerful. Each time I’ve watched the movie I am always left thinking about the plot and it’s overarching meaning. I highly recommend this film. Just have an open mind to the world and directing choices.
Casshern is an experience of mixed emotions. Also it completely took me by surprise since the trailer gives you completely different expectations compared to what the actual movie is like.
When seeing the trailer for Casshern i felt that it was a must-see. I’m admittedly a sucker for both beautiful CGI-work as well as comic book actioners. Casshern certainly delivers when it comes to CGI, the whole movie is made entirely with bluescreen and most of the time it looks superb although of course very artificial. However, the action-part is not what i expected. This is not an action-film, it has a few (rather short and not very interesting) action scenes, but mostly it’s drama and quiet dialogue with enormous backdrops of CGI-landscapes.
Many compare this with Equilibrium, and the similarities are easy to see. But while Equilibrium was more or less a straightforward action-film with a story and heavy focus on the action-scenes, this is more a drama with elements of action. The main problem with Casshern in my opinion is that the story itself is a train-wreck. I don’t know if maybe too much gets “lost in translation”, but i had a very hard time understanding what the film-makers wanted with this. The story is a mess and most of the points get lost somewhere along the way never to be seen again. Unfortunately not too uncommon in Asian cinema. And this is a bad thing in Casshern, especially since the movie is story-driven and doesn’t focus on action (which could have helped).
So, what’s the verdict? Casshern looks beautiful but makes no sense, and the pace is unbearably slow at times. Also the movie is overly long, one could easily cut 20 minutes out without really losing any cohesion (perhaps the story would even be more intelligible without so many slow scenes to muddle it?). I would give this 5/10 for trying, but the next time something like this is done i think the script will have to be reworked a couple of times. Equilibrium is no master-piece but when it comes to 1984-inspired dystopia it is far superior.
Stunning Graphics and Visual Concepts, Confused and Too Long Screenplay
In the future, in a polluted post-apocalyptic society called Eurasia after a war against Europe, the planet is devastated by the effect of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. The geneticist Dr. Azuma (Akira Terao) develops a technique called “neo-cell”, capable of regenerating the body of human beings, sponsored by an evil corporation. His son Tetsuya Azuma (Yusuke Iseya) dies in the war, but after an accident in the laboratory of Dr. Azuma, Tetsuya revives as the powerful warrior Casshern, while a new breed of mutants called “neo-humans” is generated in the plant. The neo-humans decide to annihilate the humans and raise a new world.
The first point to call the attention in “Casshern” is the stunning graphics and the visual concepts of this post-apocalyptic society and the battle scenes, which are simply amazing. The screenplay has an excellent beginning, but in a certain point it becomes confused and difficult to be understood. The running time is also too long, and I confess that I was a little tired in the end of the movie. Maybe those viewers that are familiarized with the character and the story are able to understand this movie in details, but I have the intention to watch it again in a near future to have a better understanding of the plot. My vote is six.
