Critic Reviews for Spriggan
Characterisation is regulation thin, plotting largely nonsensical, 'camerawork' and effects increasingly pyrotechnical until an amazing final light show inside the Ark.
This animated 1998 actioner about a Japanese superspy out to defend the world's most guarded archaeological secrets from evil Americans has to be seen to be believed.
Much of Spriggan feels like an apocalyptic Arnold Schwarzenegger cartoon, with lots of automatic gunfire, rivers of blood and dialogue that could have been written by a theologically inclined 11-year-old with a thing for explosions.
The Spriggan are specially trained troops placed all over the world for the purpose of guarding historical artifacts - kinda sci-fi Indiana Joneses if you will.
Newcomers to anime would be better off checking out the likes of Ghost in the Shell, but fans of the genre won't be disappointed.
Audience Reviews for Spriggan
Not bad.. wanted a little more though, good enough for an old Animation Film.. There are better ones these days ha ha ha ^_^
Spriggan rocks! Spectacular action-adventure animation that compelling mix of Raiders of the Lost Ark and James Bond adventures.
One of the cooler anime films I've seen.
