Watch Black Jack: Futari no kuroi isha - Alternative Versions.
Not the eponymous card game; the movie. Not last year's Israeli
coming-of-age tale of the same name, nor 1998's Dolph Lundgren action
flick helmed by John Woo; forget the 1968 spaghetti western revenge
caper and the 1952 French Riviera smuggling escapade starring George
Sanders as Captain Black Jack.
No, we're talking about Black Jack, the
scalpel-packing-surgeon-for-hire - a character first dreamed up by the
late Japanese manga (comic) and animation tensai Osamu Tezuka, in
publication form, 32 years ago.
And now, without further ado, the obligatory origin story all comic
books call for: Disfigured as a child after the detonation of an
unexploded WWII bomb, Black Jack becomes a dapper-dressed,
oft-brooding, mysterious, poker-faced doctor- about-town whose skills
are undoubtedly a cut above his peers. He also happens to be a
medically-unregistered quack who will labor to save any patient's life
for excessively exorbitant rates.
Best known for his two super-cute '60s animation classics Tetsuwan Atom
(Astro Boy), and Jungle Taitei (Kimba The White Lion) which Disney
unashamedly plundered for The Lion King Osamu Tezuka's subsequent
outing Black Jack was a more curious mix of pathos, psychological
drama, and morality play - with a somewhat voyeuristic penchance for
operating theater gore.
All the above weighted a fairly heavy anchor, then, on the shoulders of
Makoto Tezuka, Osamu's son and heir to the Tezuka family franchise.
Over the past year he's been directing the Black Jack series on Yomiuri
TV, and now we have his cinematic follow-up: Black Jack: The Two
Doctors Of Darkness.
The animated movie kick-starts with a terrorist attack on a shopping
mall; cue quick-fire intro of our hero, with appropriate jazzy theme
muzak, after which he's trotted off to the scene of the accident to
risk life and possible limb to save a young child's life - and
establish the renegade physician's underlying moral cred.
But it's also quickly apparent here that Tezuka, the son, is pining to
pay too much visual homage to Tezuka, the father, and in doing so the
character designs and much of the story-boarding pursue a similarly
frustrating course to Metropolis (2001) - another Osamu Tezuka creation
reinterpreted by Akira man Katsuhiro Otomo with Hayashi Shigeyuki,
a.k.a. Rintaro. It may be heretical to say this, but Osamu's time has
now passed. Characters with tree-trunk legs, no apparent feet beneath,
and bulbous light-globe fixture noses above, are just plain
out-of-place four decades on. And with animation, like in music,
old-school is not always necessarily cool.
The fact is that Makoto is no slouch himself; he has a 20-year
background in more esoteric film work including forays into 8mm. Yet
one wouldn't suspect with Black Jack. This is animation that plays it
pretty much by the book. There's none of the intuitive visual splendor
here of Hayao Miyazaki, nor the more innovative combination of
traditional 2D art with 3D computer graphics that Mamoru Oshii has
excelled with in recent years.
There are moments of visual dexterity, especially in some of the more
fluid background designs, but it's the story here that's the glue
keeping the viewer snagged; while certainly not cutting edge, it's at
times an incisive, mighty fine romp.
Initially focused on the tug-of-war between the two doctors of the
title, Black Jack and his arch-nemesis Kiriko (who, in the best plot
development, practices euthanasia-for-hire), the story detours into a
showdown with the sinister Mr. Goodman, with the previously dueling
practitioners forced to collaborate to prevent a global epidemic. The
a suitably mysterious, shut-down military medical
installation. The location?
a conveniently menacing island tropical
populated by a bevy of bizarre critters.
Meanwhile the doc who opens up more people than Homer Simpson does
beer cans changes his civvies into surgical whites pretty much the
same way as Cutey Honey switches between her zany costumes. But Black
Jack also does the same thing with his wildly swinging moods. And he's
wielding a set of scalpels blessed by a priest who just so happened to
die in the process of blessing 'em. It's all rather over the top, but
While the character designs for Black Jack are somewhat lackadaisical,
owing to the strict focus on their original still-life manga owners
there are times when our hero's eyes have about as much life as a black
bass's the personality of Black Jack is really brought to life in
suitably strong and fractionally embittered dulcet intonations by his
voice actor Akio Ohtsuka - who previously lent his vocal talents to the
Section 9 strongman Bateau in the Ghost In The Shell movies and
spin-off TV series, as well as voicing the antagonistic American pilot
Curtis in Miyazaki's 1992 classic Kurenai no Buta (Crimson Pig).
But where the doc's "light relief" child assistant fits into this human
drama is anyone's guess. Pinoko also is a legacy of the original Osamu
Tezuka story, though in the manga there was something a little
disturbing and dark about her role. In this movie, quite aside from the
fact that she's not the sharpest scalpel in the medical kit, her
cloying, annoying character is cursed with a shrill, penetrating vocal
work-out by voice actor Yuko Mizutani that I can't quite forgive.
