Derivative, Poorly Animated Crap
5 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

AD Police Files is a standard issue grim cyberpunk vision that spends much of its time ripping off earlier, better works such as Blade Runner and Robocop. Long story short, it focuses on a elite police squad dedicated to hunting down rogue androids or "skin jobs,"-I, err, mean "boomers." All of this is set in the future that looks like 1989, only with robots and cyborgs.

In only three episodes, it manages to rip off every major science fiction movie of the eighties. The first two episodes are effectively pervy versions of Blade Runner, while the third episode is essentially a plagiarism of the first two Robocop movies.

To make things worst, the animation is abysmal. Never mind Akira or Studio Ghibli, this won't even make you forget a typical episode of Pokemon! As with most early 90s anime, the subtitles are laugh-inducing, with hyper-melodramatic dialogue.

Just to top it all off, the first two episodes have a definite misogynistic feel to them. In the view of the series's writers, the essence of being a woman is apparently to die from multiple rapes. This is literally stated in the dialogue.

Rent it if you're in the mood for something comical or lurid; otherwise, don't waste your time.
