Demon City Shinjuku

Tokyo. But a different Tokyo that we are familiar with that is an evil dark city held under the thrall of demons and it is into this heart of darkness that we are led on an adventure to rescue courageous womanís father. Her name is Sayaka Rama and she is the first point on our quest. However she needs help and finds it in an unlikely place. 

Kyoya, our hero is a street punk with ultimately a good heart is on the path to face his fears and learns his place in the world. There are many obstacles on his road and the way is not easy. The Demon City is truly a horrible place with itís population of demons and equally bad people, at times itís hard to work out who are worse. An element to the movie that most had me unnerved was the possessed children. Evil kids are scary folks. 

The animation suits the movie perfectly and totally drags you into the world that you will inhabit (at times you will wish you could leave!). There is a great play on shading in the movie and the use of shadows creates a true sense of foreboding. 

You have a choice in terms of soundtrack of Japanese or English. As anyone who has read my reviews in the past will know, I do prefer to hear movies in the language they are are originally recorded. If you are one of those who like to compare between the two you will find that you are actually given slightly different versions of the same move with the Japanese being the more subtle of the two.  

If you donít mind taking a trip into a very dark place, then this is a really cool flick filled with some great characters. There are some awesome action sequences throughout and varying themes conveyed during the movie. Well worth a watch.
