Audience Reviews for Teito monogatari (Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis)

Japanese fantasy horror set in the early 20th century about an evil sorcerer hellbent on destroying Tokyo. It's an ok film and was Japan's biggest movie production in its day with its elaborate sets and special effects. The big problem here is that it tries to fit the content of four novels into a two hour film and it all feels rushed and compressed. The story takes place over a 20 year period but it felt like it was only 5 days! It entertains at times though, but it could have been better overall.
