The filmmakers Kite originally came to the process of rethinking the eponymous anime. They put at the forefront of experience characters, and features first-hand thrown overboard.
Anime Kite (known to us as “Kite – girl-killer”) was published in 1998 and caused a lot of interest, though not outstanding different story. Feed attracted bloody fights and frank sex scenes (and the Japanese know a lot of perversion). In the picture there were serious problems with the release in the United States. As a result, “Kite” experienced three reissues, and each of them was subjected to censorship at all until the light has not seen the full director’s cut.
The modern interpretation of the “Kite” takes viewers into the distant future. The economy collapsed, metropolis turned into slums and criminals engaged in human trafficking. In this world dispenses justice girl Sava. It eliminates the bandits and dreams to reach their leader, to avenge the death of his parents. Helps the heroine of her father’s former partner named Carl performed actor Samuel L. Jackson.
Starting encouraging gloomy tones familiar to the original guns with bullets, tearing the body to pieces, and violence Kite on another villain. But gradually the story turns into a mindless crap.
Kite constantly takes special preparation. He helps her forget about the family tragedy and focus on jobs. But her tormented vision of childhood, and she portrays junkie stubborn intervals during withdrawal. Then the history of snow-white thread sew seater Oburi. This character is associated with the last character. The plot is taking shape melodrama, but because of the ragged, disjointed narrative observe it is not desirable.
– Where are we going?
Kite way to the top of the underworld strew pieces of information that at all desire can not be collected into something whole. Oburi appears out of nowhere and that yes disappears. Creators struggled with the killer pulled intrigue parents Kite way to the final. But do it clumsily, and everything becomes evident long before the “revelation.” Villain is lacking is the inscription on the forehead.
The film by the middle turns into drug delirium. Set of random scenes, hamming bandits and “outgoing number” Semuyulya Jackson, whose image is corrupt wretched dubbing. Sometimes authors delight tense episodes, but the nightmare scenario reduces the meaning of their existence to zero.
Fighting component completely spoiled, despite the abundance of blood. During fights plans flash, keep track of what is happening is unreal. Individual skirmishes occur in almost complete darkness, where it is difficult to make out anything. And the last fight for long, not surprising nor ingenuity, nor cruelty.
Love, so to speak, the line came under the knife. Kite and mentor relationship does not go beyond talk and tantrums. Maximum that can be expected – a chance to see the heroine in underwear, although the age rating of the film (16 years) allows you to shoot candid sex scenes.
“Kite” – is primarily a boring movie, and then – disgusting anime adaptation. Battles there is little they devoid of ideology. History gaping holes and absurdities. As a consequence, no emotion to the characters do not feel. At the same time the film is oversaturated with family problems, “mysterious” past characters and spiced with intrigue useless. Those wishing to see the defiant act with sex and transcendent level of violence is to get acquainted with the original, and not waste time on this cheap crafts claiming to be “serious”.
