| Nearly a Classic! But not quite.
The Black Lion is a somewhat misleading name, but aren't most anime title's somewhat obscure. If your looking for a graphics driven film, this is not the place to look. This picture does however have it's own charm though. The graphics aren't bad, they are just slightly dated. The dialogue could be better, although i never snorted with contempt over a poorly written line. I enjoyed the action but again it was a bit 80's. The thing that really got me into the film was the story. I have seen many of these type of pieces and there are some similarities, but again there always are. The scenes flowed seamlessly, action then dialogue leading to action again. I was surprised by the ending, which is always good. I would definitely recommend this to any fan's of the genre.
