    I could care less if it gets made well or gets screwed up. The anime was probably single handedly the largest overrated piece of entertainment I've ever seen.

    They had me at "New Manhattan"... yeah right *throws up*

    The books are pretty amazing. I'm sure the movie will be nothing like them.

    I'm with you. I love the movie. Not over-rated at all..and I'm ot an anime fan. It's pretty incredible to tell the truth. In fact, I don't see how a live action film can approach replicating it.

    Akira is one of the few mangas that I've read and thought was just amazing. the anime movie was the biggest pile of crap I ever watched though. I doupt the live movie could be any better

    I don't have a lot of confidence in the director.

    adding Leo as Kaneda (or whatever they will name him in the movie :o :woot: ) a little "old" for the part but that's high caliber actors that whe have there :yay:

    The original is fine, so I don't know why they're bothering. It's not like it left that much room for improvement.

    Didn't WB plan this movie years ago, and it had a gigantic budget? So it was scrapped. I don't see WB moving forward with it till Speed Racer comes out. Live action anime hasn't proved itself in this country yet as being successful.

    Why are they trying to WHITE-IZE everything? LET IT STAY JAPANESE or die!

    The anime version was so awesome and I know this version'll suck.
