Review Crying Freeman (1995) (Classic Movies): Heroic Bloodshed Christopher Gans style!

genre: action, crime, heroic bloodshed, comic book

When I saw the trailer in the theater I was very impressed. At that time there wasn’t much press about this movie. So for some reason I forgot about this and did not go to see it in the theater. Which after seeing this movie on video I regret deeply. Because this is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. The heroic bloodshed in the movie is equal to that of a John Woo movie. Mark Dacascos is excellent as “the crying freeman”. Maybe the story is not really compelling. But the atmosphere in the movie is just right. From beginning to end you will be caught in an alternative reality which seems real enough. But throughout the story you realize that it is different from our world. Now realizing this movie is based on a manga comic it makes sense. Christophe Gans does such a perfect job that in my opinion he should make more live action adaptations of mangas. Because this one was magnificent!

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that loves this movie.

I was expecting Mark Dacascos to go on to bigger things but that never happened. Shame.

I think that has to do with the fact that the action genre in itself has changed considerably. But he starred in some good action movies after Crying Freeman. Like Drive (Director's Cut). And Brotherhood of the Wolf. And I am sure that he will make a comeback as the old school action genre is making a return as well.
