Rating:
PG-13
The Sky Crawlers is a 2008 Japanese anime film directed by Mamoru Oshii. The film presents an alternative view to our current time period, in which the world has been at war for so long that government officials stage regular battles in order to keep the populace at ease. In doing so they created a group of people known as Kildren, who are genetically engineered to remain at their current, adolescent age. The Kildren receive intense training in aerial combat so that they can take part in the battles that occur over major cities. One such pilot, Yuichi Kannami (Ryo Kase), begins to question his purpose and past. His only memories are those of constant training. His superior, Suito Kusanagi (Rinko Kikuchi, refuses to tell him anything of his past and seems very tense every time he mentions it. Yuichi becomes even more curious when he discovers that his predecessor, who was supposed to have been killed in action, left behind a completely operational aircraft.moreless
