Movie Info

In this Japanese animated science fiction adventure, an elderly man is chosen to be the recipient of a special robot, the Z-001, which will act as his caregiver.

Audience Reviews for Roujin Z

I've got to admit: I'm not a huge anime fan. In fact for the most part I find it a bit boring. What attracted me to this film was the story- old man get put in a life support machine and it goes crazy and he become a robot ravaging the city. Plus it was done by the same dude as Akira and I love that movie to no end.
The actual movie is actually pretty cool and funny. I would suggest watching it if you want to see something different.
