Dororo Live Action Tezuka Adaptation Screen Caps
The story is based on a manga by the incredible Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy, Phoenix), directed by Akihiko Shiota who also directed the terrific film " Yomigaeri". Starring the stars of Orange Days, who couldn’t have stepped into more different roles. From the sophisticated Detective Utsumi in Galileo to the ragtag thief in Dororo, she great in the role of comic relief and she does her work perfectly. After Hyakkimaru slays the first demon, Dororo is covered in a shower of blood. This happens to her countless times throughout the movie to her frustration. The special effects range from pretty good to fairly bad, one particularly poor effect was demon that reminded me of a man sized rubber-suited Godzilla. Spotty effects aside the film is loads of fun, never taking itself too seriously this is like a Fritz Leiber Fafhrd And Gray Mouser tale brought to film. If you like 80’s fantasy movies like Conan, Sword and the Sorcerer, or Deathstalker give this movie a try. If you prefer serious High Fantasy like Lord of the Rings give this a pass and try The Legend instead.
