Akira

"Put it up there with the most astonishing animated features ever made." - London Evening Standard

“There are certain science-fiction films, such as Blade Runner and Kubrick's 2001, that are so well realized that they can influence the genre for decades to come. Now Akira has been around for some 30 years, we have seen how long a shadow it has cast not only over science fiction but also animation, it sits comfortably alongside those other lauded titles. Another thing it shares with them is how it always offers up something new or missed with every viewing.

“The plot, straightforward to some, impenetrable to others, concerns a futuristic neo-Tokyo biker gang whose lives are impacted on after an accidental collision with a secret government-run project dealing with telekinetic powers in children. Style and substance run neck and neck in this thrilling, bold landmark film that just refuses to become dated.” - The Guardian
