Critic Reviews for X (X: Their Destiny Was Foreordained 1999)
Part of the reason it moves so slowly is that it takes time to introduce the 20 or so main characters in the film, and it takes some time to show each of these characters being hacked to death with swords.
Earth versus Heaven is always an interesting conflict, but it's seldom looked so beautiful.

Audience Reviews for X (X: Their Destiny Was Foreordained 1999)
The story elements involved in the much longer manga are largely ignored, but as a purely visual work, it is stunning and dreamlike. The battle sequences are more than satisfying and I would still recommend that anime fans and fans of the manga see this one.
Beautiful and symbolic anime.
CLAMP's broad appeal with anime fans is beyond me, still to this date. At least everyone gets killed quite fast here. What a waste of X-Japan's Forever Love and "X".
