Chronicle was a pretty decent live action Akira. :tongue: It's not a direct adaptation, obviously, but I dare you to get through the final act without itching to cry out "TETSUO!!!" and "KANEEEEDA!!!".

Depends on what you like. I'm there for the way sci fi dramatizes man's relationship with modern life. Modernity couldn't be stopped but it became pathological. Mankind really felt like that in the '80s. The Judge Dredd and Robocop like sense of the mighty city as a dirty engine, smothering mankind as it only goes faster. The '90s felt like a reprieve but now we're plunging headlong into the collapse for which we were destined.

Like, the poingancy of the Tetsuo-Kaneda relationship is that in the middle of all this massive happenings these are just two guys who are bitching each other out over stolen bikes or girlfriends of whatever. Tetsuo vs. Rocks is one of the funniest things I have ever seen in cinema.
