Review: Detroit Metal City (2008)
Whenever the presenter for a film screening begins his/her introduction with something like “Are you guys ready to go extreme?!” you know that the film will be something different. When said presenter finishes his/her spiel by chanting “Go to DMC! Go to DMC!” while urging the audience to join in, you can be sure that the film will not only be different but also fun. Even for those who are altogether unfamiliar with the manga, Detroit Metal City delivers on this promise of a different, fun, as well as carnivalesque and highly comical film, from the story to the cast, individually and collectively.
