Critic Reviews for Fist of the North Star

All Critics (3)

the narrative is more complex than the usual mindless science-fiction action concoction.

Shockingly, ridiculously, almost stupidly entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Fist of the North Star

(** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] This is a bad movie, but I found it to be quite entertaining in a "so bad its good" way. I still can't quite give it a "thumbs up", but bad film aficionados will likely love it.

While Fist of the North Star isn't my all time favorite anime, I still thought it was good for what it was. This on the other hand lowered the bar for crap like Dragonball Evolution, or the Wachowski Brother's remake of Speed Racer. Dear... Sweet... Lord.
