"On a secondary, thematic level, subservient to the audiovisual confectionery, Akira is about violence, and transcendence, and the suggestion that transcendence occurs through violence. Akira is like a Sam Peckinpah film in its celebration of the balletic qualities of violence; it's like Godzilla and his kaiju kin in its fascination with the epic grandeur of urban demolition."
