NEO Awards: Best Asian Movie

We reveal the results of the NEO Awards 2012, sponsored by MCM Comic Con in NEO issue 107 (out now). This year, winning the Award for Best Asian Movie was Crows Zero from MVM. Based on Hiroshi Takahashi's original manga, this tale of teenaged delinquency, testosterone and machismo beat some stiff competition to make its way to the top spot for 2012. But then, considering the adaptation was helmed by one Takashi Miike, maybe that's not too much of a shock! This also marks the first time that distributor MVM has received an Award for its work in the Asian movie scene - but as you'll find out, it's certainly not the last...

In an incredibly close second place this year was the excellent The Raid from Momentum - hailed as one of the most exciting action movies of the year, it proved that Indonesian rising star Iko Uwais is one to watch!
