What impressed me the most, was that all of the major elements of the Anime were captured without the really sexual or violent aspects of the story. It makes it safe for a younger crowd, without ruining the original story at all. The other thing that really stands out is how many scenes are identical to the Anime, at the major plot points it's done seamlessly.
This isn't Anime which should be obvious, but it seems some folks are struggling with that. If you miss some part of the Anime, go watch it again. The Anime nerds ripping it apart should consider live action adaptations are going to pull back to low budget B flicks from all of the ignorant reviews. As it stands, they'll likely go dig another crappy DC/Marvel story from the bottom of the pile before ever funding the finish of a live action Ninja Scroll, or Akira.
