This live- ac­tion movie of the manga and anime of the same name makes some sig­nif­i­cant changes; it still in­volves a de­mon but­ler, but now it’s set in the fu­ture, not Vic­to­rian Eng­land, and his mas­ter isn’t a boy, but a teenage girl dis­guised as a boy. We said: “The first hour is pretty ter­ri­ble, with self­con­scious act­ing, so- so fights and an air of chronic silli­ness. How­ever, it im­proves no­tably in the sec­ond half, be­com­ing fun, ex­cit­ing and even touch­ing in the de­noue­ment. How­ever, it’s only worth try­ing if you know Black But­ler al­ready; new­bies will be lost.”
