I've been spending a lot of time with Dr. Black Jack lately, so it is impossible for me to review this movie of its own merits and not compare it ruthlessly to the other adaptations that have been made. There is something I have always loved about Black Jack--he is such a well-developed character that he has the depth of simplicity, and yet, is genuinely far more complicated than he seems. This is a huge oxymoron, but it makes sense if you think about it. There is nothing *contrived* about him, and for such a dynamic, dark character, that is an accomplishment worthy of mention. read more

A Medical Assessment of Dr. Black J. Acula's Movie

While I'm not as familiar as with the character as I was watching the show semi-regularly when I was younger, I found this feature adaptation on Amazon the other night and decided I'd try it out. What I found was a mixed bag of alternating extremes. At times extremely interesting and involving writing, at times extremely cliched and melodramatic writing, at times truly beautiful and engaging animation, at times truly terrible animation half-heartedly painted over with stylized freeze-frames.

I found the concept of the story to be pretty great, even if it's not necessarily the most original, a read more

honestly I loved this movie despite never seeing anything else black jack related. the animation was beautiful even if it fell off a little at the end, character animation was smooth and detailed and all of those shots of old computers and surgery were to die for. fantastic backgrounds and direction, interesting characters and the plot was good enough even if it was predictable. i'm a huge sucker for good 90s animation/character designs so this was a treat to watch, I really enjoyed it. the only thing that bugged me was the indoor rain around the 55 minute mark. a solid 8/10.

The 1996 Black Jack anime film is actually a side story of sorts from a series of OVAs that were released throughout the 1990s, featuring Osamu Tezuka’s famous unregistered surgeon. Here, Black Jack has to aid a mysterious doctor named Jo Carol Brane, who blackmails him to aid a number of supposed “superhumans” who possess extraordinary capabilities within different fields, yet find their bodies deteriorating after a period of time from a newly discovered disease.

The Black Jack movie is more-or-less a medical mystery film with the titular character trying to figure out the origins of the disease affecting the superhumans. Those who have dabbled into read more
