One of the earliest anime productions to use CGI. It did not become a common addition to the genre until the mid-90s with the advent of Macross Plus and Ghost in the Shell. See more »

Mr. Dawson, the FBI has always been at your complete disposal and...
You call that complete? Go comb the federal prison, but get me someone to finish him off.
Federal Prison? What do you mean by that?
Garvin, you're far too smart to be this stupid

The R1 Urban Vision DVD uses Japanese 80's pop music in the opening and closing of the English language track, but uses instrumental jazz variations of those songs in the Japanese language track. See more »
I don't think hitman stories are overused. "Golgo 13" is the reason why I think this now. This movie was cool. It's interesting how people can make an animated movie, and treat it like a movie with real actors. Cartoons were never supposed to be like this. I was impressed. The action scenes were thrilling, it had great characters, and it was well acted too. The drama was actually strong in this movie. We focus on the father of this one person Golgo 13 killed, (It's not the whole movie. We focus on Golgo 13 too.) and it's strong. We see how bent on revenge he is, and it shows that your not just watching this for violence. If you like Japanese anime, then you'll like this one.
