  • Rating: NR
When a pair of violent, incarcerated criminals discover that the futuristic prison they are being held in is actually a front for a top secret cloning facility, the deadly duo stages a brutal prison break in this ultra-violent anime from Manga Video. The feature is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and boasts bright, vivid colors with no evidence of digital artifacting or edge enhancement. English and Japanese Dolby Digital audio makes the viewer feel every shot fired and every bone-cracking punch, and optional English subtitles are presented in bold, easy-to-read font. In addition to a playful audio commentary track in which the semi-inebriated director and writer discuss the making of the feature, this release also offers a variety of exciting bonus materials. A screening at Club Asia finds the creators of Dead Leaves discussing the film both with an audience and backstage as well, with footage from a question and answer session at the premiere goes into even greater detail. "True or Doubt" finds the creators meeting in a comfortable bar to play a fun and revealing game, while a more formal but no less fun film-festival interview once again finds the director in good spirits and happy to discuss the film. After going into the studio to see the voice-over artists at work during a recording session, viewers can also access a trailer for Dead Leaves in addition to some Manga previews, web links, and catalogue titles.

Synopsis


Dead Leaves
Powerhouse anime stalwarts Manga Entertainment and Production I.G (who brought audiences the popular Blood: The Last Vampire) once again team to take Japanese animation lovers on a wild ride with this breakneck futuristic actioner that will have even the most jaded viewers lifting their jaws from floor in disbelief. When Pandy and Retro awaken naked with no memory of the past, they quickly embark on a wild and violent crime spree before being captured by authorities and imprisoned in the infamous Dead Leaves lunar penitentiary. When they discover that the prison also houses a top-secret cloning facility, the deadly duo leads the inmates and the mutated victims of the government's cruel genetic experiments on a bloody uprising that will shake Dead Leaves to its very core. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    So, I remember back in the day when this first came out and never got the chance to fully watch it when it did, so I decided why not add to my collection. I actually really enjoyed it but only because it is a bit whack, Lol. It isn't the greatest anime, in my opinion, but is funny and a lot of action. It does have a lot of killing if you are thinking about getting this for a younger one.

    (Warning: This is a crazy movie that may not be for everyone. If you do not like stange, crazy flicks that confuse you or upset you do not watch) This is a great movie that is fun to watch, stylish, and crazy. If you are a fan of anime, this the movie for you. If your not, this will change your views on anime.

    Good anime

    The anime is done in a very odd art style but that makes it even better! It fits the show and action perfectly, it also is one of the funniest shows that I have seen in a long time. If you like FLCL or Excel saga then you will want to buy this anime.
