This film contains beautiful imagery and a lot of action.Definetly not for the young crowd. It feels kind of like a post apocalyptic take on Sleeping Beauty. It is hard to follow, I personally would advise watching it for its beauty and not try to follow the story particularly near the end where they suddenly decided to try to jam a complex idea into less than ten minutes and then bring the movie to a quick close.Worth the watch, but it would have benefited from more time and slower pacing towards the end.

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 wasn't disappointing, rather quite unexpectedly refreshingly delightful, however you will need to have a region two (2) player in order to view this Dvd, and just when you've figured it out, a whole new twist. Wonderful
Well worth the purchase price.

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.

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.

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.
