Movie Reviews

Unique story line
mlabel | Vancouver BC | 05/27/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The story is based on Bolt Crank, a mercenary for hire, who was genetically altered. After eating metal objects he can reproduce them through is right hand, when ever he needs them. The animation its self is very good, and the sound track is excellent. Only the first two episodes are dubbed in english. The other problem is the subtitles are incomplete, in the 5th episode the characters continue to speak, but the subs do not continue, so unless you understand Japanese, you miss part of the story. The subtitles return to normal in the second half of the episode. Eat-Man '98 is worth the money, even if you do not like subtitles."
Highly stylish

"EatMan 98 has incredible animation, a fun soundtrack, and pretty good stories. If you're expecting epic plotlines, you will be disappointed--each episode or group of episodes is a "day in the life" of the mercenary Bolt Crank, with no overall story arc. However, the standalones are quite good, and reveal a little bit more about Bolt's character each time. Ultimately, the series focusses on "ain't Bolt cool?" If you agree, you'll have fun--but if you don't, you'll be screaming about the tenth time he calmly walks in to save the day, accompanied by an appropriate theme."

"Its ok if your not picky what you watch.Ok, I purchased this cause it was cheap (relatively) and because it looked interesting. While I will agree that there is little animation it didn't bother me much. What did bother me was the fact that on ep 2 and 10 there is static on the top and bottom of the screen when it switches scenes. The storyline is interesting but not captivating, I would say it is decent for the price, but I would only say it is standard anime."
