Audience Reviews for Taiyo o nusunda otoko (The Man Who Stole the Sun)

½

This film is pretty much the only rock'n'roll Japanese film I've ever known, mentioning pretty much all things Japanese people usually hesitate to do so such as the Emperor, atomic bomb, unjust of media, and those unstated so-called social rules. Besides that, it's also packed with full of Hollywood-style actions, proving that it's possible to make a great action film in Japan, too. In all senses, this film deserves to be a legend.
