I'm a little disappointed with myself that, after watching an anime with such a unique and promising premise like Roujin Z, I didn't really enjoy it. I can barely explain why, either. The three thoughts I had that stuck with me after the movie were, in order, "This is trying way too hard", "What the hell is going on?" and "...that's it?" This is the first time that I've never liked a movie and couldn't quantify the reasons in words. Maybe I was just disappointed in it, after reading a few generally positive reviews and then expecting a lot more than I got out of it. Who knows.
Mostly tedious biopic slog livened by a few discordant, odd formal elements. The dementia framing livens it more than most in its genre, but leaves the movie feeling subjective and slight and without much of a stance of its own.
