A group of randomly chosen volunteers are cryogenically frozen to escape a petrification virus, but wake up to a world overrun by monsters. Overlooked, but it has everything anime fans crave: psychedelic visuals, non-stop action, a convoluted, mindbending sci-fi plot, and schoolgirls in ridiculously short skirts.

It was an okay anime, however there are quite the similarities with the blue gender series, anyways its a fun watch but dont expect too much!

A wonderfully imaginative movie, putting a spin on the familiar tale of Sleeping Beauty. An unstoppable and uncurable virus is spreading throughout the world, and a select few are chosen to be put in cold sleep until a cure is found. But all is not as it seems... Kings of Thorns has it all---with plenty of action, depth and great characters.

A very good movie.
Sunrise seldom disappoints.
The plot twists are pretty good, i had a moment of "OH!! WAIT!!! Ive figured it out!!!"
Just before the big reveal which is satisfying.

A beautiful production from the Sunrise team. An anime film that everyone can enjoy, with elements similar to Resident Evil, Cube and even Evangelion. With beautiful cinematic and epic fight scenes this film is a through enjoyable watch. Very underrated. Movie goers should watch for sure.

Nice animation and interesting ideas. The story itself has a nice twist, but I would have wanted more.

A surrealistic analogy of the Sleeping Beauty tale. However, there were plot holes that killed the momentum of the story.

Well, let's hope it's like the manga~! ^^

This sci-fi/horror/action amalgam moves at the clip of the videogames from which it borrows its grind-and-advance narrative mechanics. The plot ? killer plague sees a clutch of the usual genre suspects (cute kid, mysterious bad boy, shifty intellectual etc.) entering cryo-freeze only to awaken and find themselves besieged by alien nasties ? is pure, recycled pulp. It?s a fact done no favours by a reliance on an overstated Sleeping Beauty motif and tedious it?s-all-a-dream-no-it?s-not!-or-is-it? perceptual rug-pulling. But if you?ve ever pined for a film in which autonomous brambles take the form of a botanical dragon and ensnare Edinburgh Castle, King of Thorn will scratch that itch but good.
