The first feature film from the creators of hit anime series Gurren Lagann and Kill La Kill is a feast for the senses. In the future, a defense force named Burning Rescue is established to fight Mad Burnish, a group of mutants who bring fire and destruction when they’re provoked. When one of the members learns the truth about Burnish, he must choose where his loyalty truly lies. Combining traditional hand-drawn characters with 3D animation, the film boasts adrenaline-filled action sequences and vivid colors screaming to burst off the screen.
