Movie Reviews

The Enemy Is Us
Marc Ruby? | Warren, MI USA | 07/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The DVD opens to find Jun Fudou imprisoned by the forces that originally wielded her as a weapon against other victims of the RNA change that made demons out of humans. Her crime was really compassion and an insistence that demonic or no, the inner core was still human. Thus, Lan Asuka and the military establishment could no longer trust her. Making her escape, Jun finds herself living on the streets, fighting skirmishes with both beasts and the army. As she makes her way about Tokyo looking for her friend Kazumi, she rediscovers Satoru, who appears as a young boy, but houses a demonic spirit that seeks to end humanity's hold on the planet. Satoru will stop at nothing, threatening everything Jun holds dear.Jun's disappearance has also left Kazumi, Jun's roommate, adrift. She falls in with a group of young 'changed' who are far different from the demons Jun fights. Living underground, the still retain almost all their humanity. But, like innocent children in any war, they face daily threats to their existence. Like Jun, they are caught in the middle ground between the government's misguided efforts to kill the demons and Satoru's schemes.Much of this DVD is also about Asuka, who is revealed as a much more complex figure than the cold killer who abused Lan's capabilities. What we find is no more pleasant, but a whole new set of agendas materializes as the mysteries around Asuka deepen. Gradually, the Devil Lady story line has shifted from the purely episodic to a true narrative plot. This has greatly enhanced the series as Jun, who is part human and part demon, develops a more complex personality than her original appearance as a guilt-ridden demon killer. Although this is still a series where violent solutions predominate, Jun's struggle to retain her humanity and protect both humans and those who have been caught in the transition to demon has brought her a heroic stature lacking in early episodes."
