Compiling this for future refrence:
FROM non- arashi fans:
on ninomiya's acting:
The screening I attended was dubbed, so I can't comment too much on the actor's performances (the dubbing wasn't great), but based on his facial expressions and body language, Ninomiya is the standout as Kurono. It's fun watching his transformation from meek, sexually frustrated underacheiver to cocky, would-be superhero once he gets a handle on his suit and weapons. His character is given the lions share of humorous moments, in contrast to the more angsty Matsuyama, who supplies the requisite amount of melodrama. Watanabe doesn't do much more than look pretty, but she accomplishes that task in spades.
Aside from that the acting was done well, but the voice overs were NOT! Dubbed for lazy american audiences Translator New People did an awful job of hiring voice actors with any emotion and the lipsyncing was comically off like old kung fu films! I can't wait to see this movie again with english subtitles. I think it will make a difference, especially if your like me and watch anime with subs.
The action was over the top and done well. I love action and this movie had me wincing (in a good way) at the destruction and violence that was being put down. It mirrored the anime/manga well!
I have to give two scores, one for adaptation and one for the movie itself. 8.5/10 and 8/10
