This super-lit-mega-action-rescue-human-drama from beloved anime studio TRIGGER (creators of the hit series KILL la KILL and Little Witch Academia) brings their stunning visual stylings to their first feature film, a spiritual successor to many of director Hiroyuki Imaishi’s (Gurren Lagann) former works.
“Eye-popping … provocative … a wild and compelling vision that plays like an anime-induced euphoric trip.” – Carlos Aguilar, The Wrap
Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins. (Dir. by Hiroyuki Imaishi, 2019, Japan, in Japanese with English subtitles, 111 mins., Rated PG-13)
