Period.

I'll admit flat out: I was tracking with the story for most of the time, but as of the scene in the football arena I have no idea what the hell the story was about.

King Psyz wrote:The reason the motorcycle chase and most of the good parts of the Matrix make you think of Akira is because it was ripped off wholesale from Akira for the most part.
Fawst wrote:Ripped off how? Because it had a motorcycle going fast? It was on a highway? First off, Akira's scene took place at night on a deserted highway and was a battle between two gangs. Matrix was daytime on a very busy highway and was a chase/getaway. I'd dare say that the Matrix scene was far more action-packed than the Akira scene.
