  Japanese Super Robots Ready To Go Mental... Again!
  Casshern on DVD next month
  Described as “astounding” by Empire, “dizzying”, “thought provoking” and “mind-blowing” by Film Review, “a sumptuous and exotic brain melt” by SFX and “better than both Matrix sequels put together” by News Of The World (so it must be true then!), acclaimed sci-fi epic Casshern is coming to DVD next month. Based on the 35 episode Cassan - Robot Hunter anime series from 1973, Casshern takes a look at the late 21st century, after a devastating war between Europa and the Eastern Federation has ravaged the Earth with chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, with the only hope of survival lying with geneticist Dr. Azuma and his breakthrough neo-cell treatment which could possibly regenerate mankind. But this neo-cell treatment goes horribly wrong, creating a race of - wait for it! - mutant androids (have we learned nothing?); the Neo-Sapiens and their army of super robots.

Coming from acclaimed fashion photographer and music video director Kazuaki Kiriva, Casshern is apparently the closest any live-action film has ever come to capturing the spirit of anime, whilst also paying homage to his rock video roots. A volatile combination by any stretch of the imagination, and we can expect the robot holocaust when Momentum Asia release the Casshern double DVD on April 25th.
