Did You Know?

Trivia

The film was a strong influence on both the music and setting of the anime series "Bubblegum Crisis." The choreography of Priss & The Replicants' song at the beginning of the first episode was modeled after the opening musical number of the film. In addition, the song "Akuma To Tenshi No KISU" from BGC's fourth episode has an introduction nearly identical to the introduction of the film's opening number "Nowhere Fast." See more »

Comic book action story with style
15 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I seems that not everyone understands the greatness with this movie? -The actors do a really good work-Moranis is one, and Pare is good, but he has much less to play with as a carachter. -style is everything here: the lines are like they where stolen from old westerns or movies from the 50s. To really enjoy this movie: do not expect the ordinary action...see it as a "musical" set in a theatre and admire the artificial "artsiness" of this studio-style film! ...the bad guys are really bad...but funny, -and the good guy is really brave... -This is not suppose to be your ordinary action movie! -This is art...and poetry!

Best Regards
