While this film was nominally based on Edward E ("Doc") Smith's "Lensman" books, significant elements of the plot have actually been lifted from DC Comics "Green Lantern", which is fitting, as "Green Lantern" pretty much bases major parts of its background and setup on the "Lensman" stories.

anyone remember the days where the SciFi channel use to show anime films about 6-7 years ago? well out of all of them, only 3 stuck in my mind, first being Akira for sheer brilliance in animation and detail, next was Fist of the North star for the outstanding entertainment, and finally there was a quietly known feature film called The Lensmen. this film from start to end was amazing, because of the story, yes it seems very similar to Star Wars, but you have to remember that the books were made about 50 years before George Lucas started his little project that would change the world, even then he copied the theme from Flash Gordon.
this should get a DVD release, to do it justice and then the world will realize how good The Lensmen really is.
