Film Description

The year is 2019 in post-apocalyptic Tokyo. Cyberpunk biker Tetsuo gets involved with a top-secret military research group trying to restore an ancient force (Akira) to save their world and has begun to develop special powers. The police and the army attempt to contain Tetsuo, but his transformation gathers speed rapidly...

This stunning vision of a dystopian, futuristic city deserves honourable comparison with Blade Runner and Metropolis.
