They completely lost the point of what made the anime so compelling.
I wouldn't say it's bad as DB Evolution, but it took a giant crap on the source material, surely.
There is some overacting from the main lead, the plot is just to crowded and fast and I was hoping for better direction from Adam Wingard.
Props for Willem Dafoe, Lakeith Stanfield, soundtrack and cinematography. Woulda been better if it was mini-series.
Even if you haven't seen the anime (which you should) this is still a bad movie, that's edited poorly and doesn't follow its own logic. Nor does it establish any of its characters or their motivation, really. (Mia's motivation is never explained) Also, just saying a character is smart isn't good enough, you need to show us. And this movie continously tells us its characters are smart and then shows us how incredibly stupid they are. That doesn't work...
It's not just a bad adaptation. I'm giving this a thumbs down, not as a hardcore fan of the series, but as a hardcore fan of movies. And this is just a bad movie.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
