In a post-apocalyptic future, gangs of savage thugs prey on the fleeting remnants of civilization, raiding them for food and water in the endless wasteland the world has become. Humankind's only hope for the future may lie in a young girl with an amazing ability and in the only man powerful enough to protect her and punish evil--Ken, the Fist of the North Star!
An unnecessary addition to an already sufficiently-comprehensive series. It does fill in a few blanks and lines things up in chronological order, but it is pretty much a Recap of about half of season 1. I also didn’t like how they made Lin almost like a super-magical, untouchable being. She was important in the anime; she stood up for what was right in the face of danger and her spirit of hope and zeal was felt, but she wasn’t mystical. I don’t recommend seeing it if you’ve seen the original. Nothing significant was added. 4/10.
The movie really feels like it tried to fit too much into its running time. It summarizes the same events that happened in the TV series (before Hokuto no Ken 2), but doesn't quite match up and retcons a few things. There's not enough room for character development compared to the TV series, and it overall just feels like it could have done better, despite the well-done animation and OST. Skip this and watch the TV series instead.
