In the late twentieth century, the Secret Security Force was formed to stop the actions of the communist terrorist group known as the Red May.

But her first mission will be a true test of skill, for members of the Red May are being found dead, murdered by gruesome methods. Who is causing these murders? And why?

Brainless ultraviolence
31 December 2000 | by (WA) – See all my reviews

"Angel Cop" is mind-numbingly violent, no question about that. It is also mind-numbingly stupid.

The plot to this six-part direct-to-video anime series revolves around a Communist terrorist organization out to topple Japan's economy on their first step to taking over the world, three psychic assassins that take orders from some very powerful (and corrupt) government positions, and the Special Security Force, which is the only police force in Japan that is actually allowed to fire their guns.

"Angel Cop" is idiotic, but it does have some redeeming values. First off being the English dubbing, which is laughably bad ("If this is justice, then I'm a banana!"). Second is that it does not pretend to be any smarter than it actually is. Third is the above-average animation quality.

I'd recommend this one for anybody seeking a mindless action fest, but make sure the kids are in bed first.
