Based on the legendary Osamu Tezuka's manga, BLACK JACK is a tense psychological thriller that details the exploits of its eponymous character, a master surgeon who works miracles only for those who can afford to pay him. Haunted by his past, Black Jack travels the Earth accompanied only by his mysterious assistant, taking on impossible medical procedures for an exorbitant fee, then often waiving them for those patients who impress him with their spirit or will to live. Here, Black Jack uncovers the secret behind the intellectual and athletic "Superhumans" who have been cropping up in society. Linking their emergence to a super drug that could prove fatal to mankind, Black Jack becomes determined to put an end to this conspiracy. Beautifully animated, BLACK JACK renders every surgical procedure in amazing detail, helping to make BLACK JACK an extraordinary thriller that outclasses most similar Hollywood fare.
