Biker delinquents discover apocalyptic secret
Based on one of the most influential manga ever drawn, 1987's 'Akira' introduced Japanese anime to the Western world.
In a nightmarish future Tokyo, blown apart by a huge WWIII nuclear blast, an aimless motorcycle gang stumble across "Akira" - a terrifying government secret which may destroy everyone.
The characters and emotions of 'Akira' are basic, but the film has been a inspiration for more recent movies like 'The Matrix', and will remain a cult classic in the future.
