Review: A very surprising update of another late 70s anime cartoon based off the manga of Leiji Matsumoto; fun for the whole family even though the finale doesn’t live-up to the build-up. The characters are well-defined with both the protagonist and antagonist having complete story arcs. The look of the film is incredible as well as well detailed.
