Reviews of Casshan: Robot Hunter (1993) and related work

Casshan: Robot Hunter (1993Moving picture, 101 minutes)

A young man remade into a cyborg by his father quests to destroy one of his father’s other creations, the leader of a robot army that has almost conquered the world to preserve it.

Retro superhero SF. Remake of a 1973 series. Gloriously campy. Mad Max (1979) meets Tezuka’s Firebird (cf. Phoenix 2772) on a mountain of toys.
