Critic Reviews for Roujin-Z
Even more impressive is its depiction of care for the elderly, an issue which hasn't aged one bit. Successful both as cautionary science-fiction and social commentary, Roujin-Z is one of Otomo's most adult endeavors and watching it is highly recommended.
Audience Reviews for Roujin-Z
I'm a little disappointed with myself that, after watching an anime with such a unique and promising premise like Roujin Z, I didn't really enjoy it. I can barely explain why, either. The three thoughts I had that stuck with me after the movie were, in order, "This is trying way too hard", "What the hell is going on?" and "...that's it?" This is the first time that I've never liked a movie and couldn't quantify the reasons in words. Maybe I was just disappointed in it, after reading a few generally positive reviews and then expecting a lot more than I got out of it. Who knows.
I've got to admit: I'm not a huge anime fan. In fact for the most part I find it a bit boring. What attracted me to this film was the story- old man get put in a life support machine and it goes crazy and he become a robot ravaging the city. Plus it was done by the same dude as Akira and I love that movie to no end. The actual movie is actually pretty cool and funny. I would suggest watching it if you want to see something different.
