Has what the Stormriders lacked
Well, some believe that this movie is bad, but it isn't. I found rather incredible, comparing to the Storm Riders. It has better special effects, also, the version I saw was dubbed compared to the rather dissapointing subtitles on the american DVD release of the Storm Riders. Sadly, the Strom Riders is the the only movies you can compare this to, but in many aspects this wins out. It's about the same length, with most of the same actors. The shinning points are the action, music, and the story. The story is kind of tragic in a way, but it's perfect, and doesn't leave you crying or smiling, just with you r mouth open at all the jaw dropping scenes. Though I wish it did have a lot more action, there are many fights, and they are all fantastic.

To sum it up, it's a really good film, leading up to the final battle, which is the best fight scene in any live action film I have ever scene, and the fact that it takes place in some what modern America is a plus.
