Rating: 3/5

Length: 137 min

In a future, dystopian Tokyo Tetsuo, a biker gang member, has a run-in with an escaped psychic test subject. This somehow awakens psychic powers in Tetsuo.

He is taken away to a hospital where the mad scientists work. He learns about a mysterious being called Akira. Tetsuo’s friends spend the movie looking for him.

I know this is supposed to be a classic anime movie and I’m supposed to love it, but I thought it was just okay. This may be because I watched the original (crappy) dub.
