I have never heard of this, but I saw a trailer, and instantly bought it on a whim, and I have to say I am very happy with my purchase! It is a great movie, the animation is flawless and very artsy with some CGI put into it. The story is very in-depth and the characters are unique and pull the story along quite nicely. Anyone looking for a strange, creative, fantastic, anime to jump into should definitely buy this, it will not disappoint you!

This is a peculiar film. Not in that it has odd concepts to deliver or is filled with multiple mind-blowing twists (though there is one that is possible to understand on your first viewing), but that it doesn't seem like a lot happens in 2 hours. For a horror film, it seems very unoriginal in that there are only two ways in which lead characters die (there are seven lead characters), and most of the film is spent running around to escape terribly-rendered CGI monsters. The animation can range from beautiful and breathtaking to banal and laughable (the latter applies to the absolutely horrendous computer generated animation). The plot itself is simple: survive. It thickens in the last fifth, and all that happens before are merely discoveries. The characters aren't your typical stereotypes (save one), but that doesn't make them interesting. I really don't care if these people get eaten along the way or not because, quite frankly, they are a bore. Some of the science mumbo-jumbo is hard to grasp in reality, and there are plenty of questions left over when the movie is finished that you don't care to ask because you honestly couldn't care less. So, then, you might be wondering what exactly is so great about this film? One word: atmosphere. This anime is a suspense-thriller because of the picture it paints with the scenery, situation, and music. The main song is haunting and melodious, and fits in perfectly with the scenario and the setting. The facility itself is spooky, as if some foreboding presence is hovering over the entire building. The fact that the characters seem to be completely abandoned with the facility adds to the atmosphere, and draws you in with the mystery of what happened to the rest of the world. Not all questions are answered, but not all of them need to be; it adds to the worrisome feelings all the more. It's not a masterpiece, but I fully enjoyed what I saw. The biggest disappointment, I think, is just how much better King of Thorn could have been if it stuck more along the storyline of the manga. That would have been magnificent to see, but, for something less, it still plays out satisfactorily. I recommend King of Thorn for the edge-of-the seat atmosphere that keeps you hooked throughout; take my word as you see fit.

It was a decent anime. The animation itself was fair if not amazing. the story keeps you interested although the characters are a bit cliché. It has some twists that annoying clever people who wont shut up and have to tell you what's going to happen next will figure out.

Its a fair edition into my collection. Nothing memorable to cosplay though.

This is one of my favorite anime movies by far the art and animation are amazing not to mention the story line kept me hooked through out the whole movie. This movie is definitely not for young children because of all the blood scenes but its not gore. The ending got a little confusing at first but then it all worked out in the end a 9.5/10

I enjoy getting my mind tossed around a couple times and stomped on and having to rewatch movies again to completely understand them. This movie was perfect for that. It's a suspenseful, sci-fi, action, thriller, horror movie that keeps you guessing at what's real and what's not.

The animation was fine and the story was interesting, with a provocative twist at the end. But having seen the ending I can't imagine sitting through it over and over again. We watched it once and then sold it.

Thew movie was very simple, deadly virus infect the world, nobody knows how to stop it, so science takes over and bam! crazy survival horror movie time. I really enjoyed the movie and the animation, it was very well done. As far as the characters go, they were all pretty basic, and if you don't watch the entire movie, you will probably be wondering what the heck is going on.

I expected better from this show after watching the trailer. Its a decent show if you like plenty of action and suspense but theres not much gore after the initial attack. Other then that the animation and musical score was decent. It just lacks the added steps to make the show great.

Im excited about watching this with my friends but im also happy that this came not just on time but early. When i opened the package the corner or the cardboard around the dvd was alil squished but the case itself was perfect.
