Removed 'Tetsuo is also a character from Akira.' as it is mentioned at the beginning of the article and is otherwise irrelivant


The setting, which shows modern Japan as an industrial wasteland, suggests a post-apocalyptic nightmare.

Originally this said "post appolyptic," which I took to mean "post-apocalyptic," but really it didn't suggest anything of the sort to me. Perhaps I'm not suggestible enough. Koyaanis Qatsi 00:51, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Latent homosexuality?[edit]

Who added the latent homsexuality part? While it does seem that the main character is somehow afraid of his girlfriend, I think assuming that he is homosexual based on just that is a bit far-fetched.

  • The driver and the man combine into a giant metal penis at the end of the movie.
  • They combine into this penis after a hallucinatory jazzy scene in the water where they run their hands over each other's faces lovingly.
  • Also the end of the movie says they're going to cover the world in rust with their love.

Tetsuo means "Iron man"[edit]

"Tetsuo" may be a refrence to the manga "Akira" in which the character Tetsuo merges with machinery to fix his severed limb.

I removed this line as while there is a similarity, "Tetsuo" does not refer to a specific character's name, it is the literal words Iron (鉄 tetsu) and Man (男 o). Synt4x

Well, which one is it? "the man", or the "Metal Fetishist"[edit]

Well, which one is it? Is it the "man" or the "Metal Fetishist" can it be both when the cast is listed separstetly? idiots! ( (talk) 07:52, 5 October 2013 (UTC)) I meant it can't be both ( (talk) 07:53, 5 October 2013 (UTC))

No Reception Section[edit]

This article is missing information on the film's reception. The production section is also way too short and needs more information added to it including information on the film's development, and designs. These are very important pieces of information and need to be added to the article in order for it to meet Wikipiedia's standards of a well developed article.--Paleface Jack (talk) 21:58, 28 September 2015 (UTC)


This article is too short and missing important information on the film's production and reception, both of which are way too short in the article and needs to be expended. More information on the film's development, and other production information needs to be added to the article's production section. Reviews from notable critics needs to be added to the film's reception section as well. All of these additions needs to occur in order for this article to meet Wikipiedia's standards of a well developed article.--Paleface Jack (talk) 20:46, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
