The art style and overall aesthetic of the movie is *strongly* reminiscent of the movie adaptation of X, except this is overall a better movie. X made the mistake of trying to condense a long, complex story into an hour and a half.
That being said, the movie lacks some of the simple, powerful charm of Tezuka’s manga stories, or even their portrayal in the recent TV series adaptation. This movie isn’t intended to be charming–it is dark, gritty, sprawling, and blunt.
All things considered, though, within the framework of a wider context this is a solid movie title, and there is the potential for those with little understanding of the Black Jack canon to enjoy themselves. It’s not very deep and it’s not very groundbreaking, but hey, the worst disasters and mistakes are often echoes of the same old refrains we’ve heard throughout human history. Maybe that is part of the point. Or maybe I’m reading too damn much into this movie.
