A Dark Material which is Surprisingly Humane

This anime film is incredibly dark. It covers extreme poverty, hunger, cannibalism -- conditions that no one will want to see themselves live in such conditions . It explores humanity's perseverence and willpower against all odds.

That said, I was surprised by the good moments especially on Asura's side. His difficult journey of discovering his identity was a heartwarming experience. I do not think its well-crafted 3D techniques poses a problem in terms of what the film is trying to deliver.

Overall, while I was impressed with the film's impact and delivery, I still feel that the film did not maximize the vast potential it was given. To me, whatever the film had achieved so far could have been better if it were remodelled into a short film.

LOVE this movie

I love this movie. Asura is a proof that not all animated film is for the children. Some of the dialogue and scenes in this film is more suitable and easier to be understood by an adult audience.

The story is very simple but has a good moral message. Especially when Asura met the Monks for the second time. That's is unforgettable moment from the film ASURA. I cried, was touched by scene when the Monks cut off his hands and give it to Asura.

The description of Asura's character in the film also very suited with the story. The innocence of a child audible from his voice. The cruelty from his eyes, canine teeth, and long nails like a monster.

Two thumbs up for Asura

Very memorable

I'd give this movie a solid 8/10. It is among the most violent movies I've ever come across and THE best 3D animated movie from Japan I can currently think of. It's only 70 odd minutes long and well worth your time - give it a go!
