To say this movie was confusing would be an understatement. I know it is supposed to be a masterpiece in Japanese animation but it goes on far too long. I dont know if you need to be familiar with the manga but the storyline is weak all I got out of it was some punk kid gains psychic powers then uses them to blow things up.

Also can anyone explain to me who excatly the hero of the story is as I couldnt find anyone I liked or sympathised with.

Personally as I was soo bored I kept flicking between the english and the japanese dubbing for something to do.
