Adapted from Hiroya Oku’s manga, 58-year-old salaryman Ichiro Inuyashiki (Noritake Kinashi) is living a humdrum existence. He has no friends, his own family ignores him and his doctor has just informed him that he has cancer. One night when walking his dog, Inuyashiki is struck by a mysterious light. He later wakes up unharmed but finds that he now has powerful abilities. However, Inuyashiki was not the only transformed that night. High school student Hiro Shishigami (Takeru Satoh) also gained abilities, but uses them for his own nefarious purposes.

The movie offers fantastic CGI, slight humour here and there and is action packed. Storyline is quite relatable to real life too.
Definitely worth your time in the cinema and I’d rate this a 5 star. I’d say Inuyashiki is a PG-13 and not for young children as there are violence involved but do give this a go if sci-fi and action movies is your kind of thing.
