In Neo-Tokyo, the year 2019 a biker gang lead by Kaneda is fighting another
gang called the clowns. During one of the chases around the city Tetsuo
crashes with his bike when spoting a wierd little blue guy. After a while
the other gang members find the crash site, but before they can get some
help the army decends in helicopters. They take Tetsuo with them. Soon
they will find themselves trapped in a far greater war, than they could
ever imagine, and Testuo will have a main part in this war.
At first this movie seem a lot like just some teenage punks rampaging
around the town, making trouble. Which they also do, but the main part
lies on the military and the Akira project. This movie includes some quite
bloody gunfights and some serious mass-destruction.
