Synopsis

Following a cataclysmic nuclear war, the world teeters on the brink of complete destruction. Civilization is polarized into a degenerate society where opposing packs of marauding scavengers prey on helpless, homeless nomads. For those who are lucky enough to survive the constant brutality and danger, it is a bleak existence. Life an death blur into abstractions. The only hope left for mankind is to find a hero worthy of becoming the next "Fist of the North Star" - an enlightened warrior - who is capable of leading those with the will to survive out of this barrenness into a new world. But in this savage no-man's land of shifting loyalties and power-hungry demi-gods, heroes are in short supply.

Look call me a weenie or whatever but i just cannot recommend this movie, and here is why.
This movie is what's called a recap movie, it hopes to condense the whole series into this 2 hour package, in order to make it easier for people to get into the series, but that's where it ultimately fails. You see, this movie is structured like one of those youtube "best of" video's, it's a constant barrage of event's that feel barely connected, if you haven't seen the series before you will get lost real fucking fast, and that kinda defeat's the purpose of a recap movie. ...

Actually the movie was pretty bad.

Scenes, characters and sufficient content of the original material were omitted. Which, by the way, is compressible, but it would have been pretty good if you had a completely new story or adapted a specific saga and did not compress the whole story.

The end on the other hand was quite disappointing the way in which the conflict was resolved.

The film had alternative endings of which I do not have no idea (and I think most of them do not either), for which I am analyzing the standard version

In other aspect the film felt very slow and contradictorily very fast, to ...
