The music really complimented that trailer.

Simon_Brezhnev3984d ago

Yeah the music is pretty good i have to admit that. I just want to see how they going to do the special affects. If it looks cheap im not going to waste my time.

I'm not going to put my hopes up 2 high. Japan usually does a horrible job when they turn their anime to movies. I notice Japan do love more over the top in their movies than we do.

AWBrawler3984d ago

They can't screw up any more than we Screwed Dragonball Evolution, and if you ever saw GANTZ, you'd know that they do some anime movies very well.

Simon_Brezhnev3984d ago

Yeah im not saying US does good comic to real action movies either. I just think when it comes to the special effects US is probably top notch. I didnt see Gantz live action not really a fan of the series.

AWBrawler3984d ago

I don't care for the series either, but the Movie was noticeably better than the anime. watching the movie is what made me give GANTZ a second try.

Megaman_nerd3984d ago

Gantz movie better than the anime? You crazy? They removed the sex and guro scenes and many of the plot elements were heavily downgraded just to adapt the movie for a general public.

AWBrawler3984d ago

thats exactly why it was better. usually i like that stuff, but the anime overdid it, like the dog licking the girl and the over the top language.

Looks pretty nifty. Might have to check this out!

the problem with these live action movies is that the writers and directors don't fully understand the essence of the anime and lots of important elements get lost during the transition. Like for example, Kenshin never acts cocky enough to kill a guy while holding the sword with one hand like the actor does at "00:25" and "00:29". Another thing is, he never uses his hands to protect himself unless he has no sword yet in the trailer he punches someone in the face at "00:27". And that wall run? Kenshin would never do that either.

This is a low budget short film of Naruto that is better than any live action movie based on anything:

he does the wall run in his fight against Hajime Saito in the Anime...
