Customer Reviews of Casshern
The action in this movie wasn't constant, but when there was action then it was pretty cool. Great effects for the flick. Good use of all the green screen. But to totally appreciate the movie you can't look away from the screen too much because you will miss the real meaning of what is going on. Not your average American movie where there is a clear bad guy and good guy.
