"When a Hero Falls, a Legend Will Rise."
After 50 years of bitter warfare in the late 21st century, a new crisis looms. A threat to the future and the overall existence of mankind. But, there is hope a savior will emerge...Casshern. Casshern is an action-packed, sci-fi thriller that blends Japanamation and manga-inspired live action to create a new hybrid form of filmmaking that is both visually stunning and thought provoking.

"...evokes Dune's intergalactic soap opera as filtered through the computer game aesthetic of Avalon...  Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"...a conscious attempt to blend digital backlot technology to craft a film that was like an anime rendered in live-action.  Richard Scheib, The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review

Editor's Note
Japanese music video director Kazuaki Kiriya tackles his first feature-length film with the fantasy war epic CASSHERN. Set in the late 21st century, the story takes place in Eurasia, a place resulting from 50 years of war between Europa and the Eastern Federation.

Professional Reviews

DVD Times 9 of 10
"Shot entirely in front of green-screens with the gorgeous Mamoru Oshii-esque backgrounds added in post-production, this is as close as a live-action film will ever get to anime...Although flawed, Casshern is a great film. The visuals are astounding; especially considering the budget was only around $46 million. The budget might explain why there aren't any high-profile actors present, although fans of Takeshi Kitano might well recognise one of the actors from several of Kitano's films. The film is well worth picking up on DVD...At worst, it's 140 minutes of eye-candy; at best, it's a socially relevant anti-War sci-fi epic; but regardless of whether you're a fan of anime, a fan of Japanese cinema, a sci-fi fan, or merely an intrigued cinemagoer, there's something here for you." - Michael Sunda
