Synopsis
Review EIGHT MAN AFTER vol.1
EIGHT MAN AFTER vol 2
8 MAN AFTER vol. 1 (East2West), 55 mins, cert 18, 10.99.
Based on a 1960's comic book and TV series, this has very much the look of an American 'tec/superhero thriller cartoon. 8 Man is encased in a super cyber shell that gives him "awesome strength and near light speed travel".
His adversaries are a gang of drug crazed criminals who have cyber-activated weapons grafted onto their bodies which cause maximum carnage when they run amok. The main characters are a private eye, a street urchin, and the girlfriend of the original '8 Man'.
With good quality animation and design, interesting characters, and effective dubbing, this is gripping stuff and undeniably entertaining, if more than a little blood-spattered.
