Movie Info

Animator of the groundbreaking animé classic Akira, Katsuhiro Otomo was the executive producer for this two-fisted Raiders of the Lost Ark-like animated action-adventure flick, based on a manga by Hiroshi Takashige and Ryoji Minagawa. The film opens with members of the secret organization Arkam rooting around on Mt. Ararat -- the supposed landing spot of Noah's Arc.

Critic Reviews for Spriggan

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (6) | DVD (13)

Top Critic

Much of Spriggan feels like an apocalyptic Arnold Schwarzenegger cartoon, with lots of automatic gunfire, rivers of blood and dialogue that could have been written by a theologically inclined 11-year-old with a thing for explosions.

This animated 1998 actioner about a Japanese superspy out to defend the world's most guarded archaeological secrets from evil Americans has to be seen to be believed.

The Spriggan are specially trained troops placed all over the world for the purpose of guarding historical artifacts - kinda sci-fi Indiana Joneses if you will.

Visuals are all that this movie has going for it. If the sound system in your theater dies, it won't make any difference.

A better-than-average anime adventure.

Kawasaki can stage an action sequence with the best of them.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Though 'Spriggan' manages to be both ludicrously convoluted and peculiarly childish, its worst fault is that it's mind-numbingly violent.

One Guy's Opinion

It's often fun to look at, if that's your bag, but when Yu defensively exclaims, 'We can't all be Schwarzenegger,' you know how low they've set the bar.
