Emotional and Sad movie is not as violent as the show

This Movie was very sad and emotional as a character dies in a hard way. I don't think it deserves it's MA15+ rating and should be lowered since it is not as violent as the show. Otherwise I think it's a really good an emotional movie.

Great Continuation of the Anime!

This movie was a great continuation of the anime. If your child enjoys anime, and can watch movies in the marvel franchise, I think you should be fine. The main bad for this movie may be sadistic and a few chickens short of a coop, but it gives you a warm feeling, and the animation sent a chill up my spine. You should watch the show (available on Netflix, Hulu, and Crunchyroll) before watching the movie. It doesn’t hurt that it has a couple of awards under it’s belt as well.
