Indestructible to his enemies and irrestible to women, the professional assassin codenamed GOLGO 13 is shrouded in mystery and anonymity. If you're on his hit list your already dead. Always hired on his reputation alone, GOLGO 13 never breaks a contract. But can he survive the combine forces of the FBI, CIA, The Pentagon and the U.S. Army? Has the nameless agent finally met his match against the superhuman powers of the Snake and the twin evils of the psychopathic mercenaries, Gold and Silver? Written by <a.leahy@uws.edu.au>

The three special agents sent into the church (guy with a hook hand, one with two ice picks and one with a knife) to kill golgo are explained to have been killed in the firefight that ensued when bragan's team unloaded on the church. Yet later when they want to test snake's ability they use the same exact 3 special agents to do so. See more »

Quotes

[Duke finds out who Dr. Z really is]
Cindy: Who is this?
Golgo 13: You almost had me fooled.
Cindy: Duke?
Golgo 13: I tested the phone in the safe. It's a fake. If I had more time, I'm sure I can locate the remote switch. You ought to get an Oscar for that act you put on. Oh, and by the way, Cindy, I know who Dr. Z is: It's you.
Cindy: [hesitates] Duke! Duuuuuuke!

He shoots! He scores!
15 June 2001 | by (Warrensburg, Mo.) – See all my reviews

The baddest professional asassain I've ever seen! Good anime flick. The main character, golgo 13 is a character so stoic, so stonefaced, that he hardly cracks even a hint of emotion even when in the act of having hot sex. There's a good deal of that in the movie, and it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the plot, but that's the standard bug about most anime movies I've seen. Oh well, the kiddos should get a good thrill out of it anyway. The action is intense! This guy is an amazing shot, with either his modified M 16 or his revolver. My favorite scene is when he goes head to head with Snake (a repulsive, toothless villain who uses bladed yo-yos to kill his victims. I'm not making this up,) in an elevator. The final brawl he had with the twin killers Silver and Gold was cool too, but given how much they hyped up the two characters beforehand, I frankly expected them to put up more of a fight. Anyway, it's a great anime flick.
