Can he avoid his pursuers, know friend from foe, find the Titan, and embrace his humanity, a nature he has despised until now?

DVD REVIEW:

I’m a big anime fan and when I heard that an animation will be coming out in the US that’s not kid-oriented or Disney-like was going to be released, I was happy.  I’ve been hearing how cool the special effects for this movie was and how much time and effort was spent spent on this film.  Also, how much the film costs (75 million-ouch!)  Unfortunately, that time & effort wasn’t enough because the movie didn’t do that well in the box office and FOX had the animation studio closed down.  What a shame!

This was a good start in bringing non-Disney like animation movies to the US and now the only thing we can hope for is the “Final Fantasy” computer generated movie to do well when it’s released in 2001.

The movie is very good, the acting is very good and one can only hope that people check the DVD out for this film.  The audio is impressive and what can I say…DTS!

The movie includes several lengthy deleted scenes and a music video.

Check this DVD out!
