Looking at it from a neutral perspective the film hangs in places but I felt the film rewarded me for my patience.
The story line of the film was quite old and had been done in many different ways, countless times before . I think that this particular film is one that would stand out from the crowd.
As it has been said before many anime films are badly dubbed but it didn't bother me in this film. The film maybe wasn't improved by the actors voices but the dialogue was good.
I thought the action scenes in the film were really good and there was easily enough to keep the action junky really happy.
All in all it won't please everyone but I thought it was great. I believe it is certainly worth a look even if you aren't a big fan of anime
