Casshern (2004) In the future, in a polluted post-apocalyptic society called Eurasia after a war against Europe, the planet is devastated by the effect of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. The geneticist Dr. Azuma (Akira Terao) develops a technique called "neo-cell", capable of regenerating the body of human beings, sponsored by an evil corporation. His son Tetsuya Azuma (yusuke Iseya) dies in the war, but after an accident in the laboratory of Dr. Azuma, Tetsuya revives as the powerful warrior Casshern, while a new breed of mutants called "neo-humans" is generated in the plant. The neo-humans decide to annihilate the humans and raise a new world.

Movie Quote(s):
  • [before a fight] Barashin: My name is Barashin! Casshern: And mine is... Casshern!

  • Kotaro Azuma-hakase: You have no idea what war is like.
Movie Trivia:
  • One of several films around the world that was produced almost entirely on a "digital backlot" (i.e. shot with the actors in front of blue/green-screens with all backgrounds added in post-production, a technique which has been used for TV, video and video game production for many years). Although which movie was shot first is debated, the other movies (released in 2004-05) include: Immortel (ad vitam) (2004), Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004), and Sin City (2005).
  • The white helmet in the center of the other helmets is the same one from the original anime series, "Shinzô ningen Kyashân" (1973).
  • In several shots of Dr. Kozuki's home, a helmet closely resembling that of popular anime hero Speed Racer can be seen. This is an in-joke: The late Tatsuo Yoshida, the creator of the original version of Speed Racer, "Mahha GoGoGo" (1967), was also the creator of "Shinzô ningen Kyashân" (1973), upon which this film was based.
  • This is considered a "live-action anime" and borrows heavily from standard anime techniques including camera angles, action backgrounds (i.e. lines indicating movement), acting styles, and plot elements.
  • This was veteran Japanese actor Tatsuya Mihashi's final film. Mihashi was able to complete all of his scenes but died during post-production before the film was able to be screened.
