Tomoru is an average student in Artificial City 5 of Earth 2292 but is bored with his life. Losing himself in VR dreams everynight to avoid the banality of his life he dreams of adventure and 'times gone by'. Meanwhile, the EDF (Earth Defense Force) have been picking up strange signals from deep in space and have come to recognise them as points in 3 dimensional space, a literal schematic for building....something. With the arrival of the Enemy, a strange seemingly indistructible living machine, Tomoru is caught within the city as the Enemy attacks and is nearly run over by Dr Kanzaki who happens to be head of the EDF department given the job of bringing the unknown schematic to life. But the unknown Enemy seems to be searching for something and targets Tomoru as it's target and all seems done for. But when all seems lost, the EDFs' mysterious creation comes to life and saves the life of Tomoru and perhaps the entire world. Written by Sahuagin

Enjoyable sci-fi hero fantasy
13 January 2001 | by (N.E. England) – See all my reviews

This movie is an excellent sci-fi romp combining intense actions sequences with a tense plot. Basically the story centers around an alien invasion of earth and a teenager who finds himself forced into the battle with the aid of a prototype suit of armour which could be the planet's only saviour.

I recently caught this movie as part of a anime run on Sci-Fi, and almost missed this enjoyable piece of science fiction. Detonator Orgun dives straight into the action with a sequence which although enjoyable is slightly confusing. After this sequence the actual story begins and starts the process of explaining the situation and characters. As the movie progresses the plot unfolds, leading to more excellent action sequences and a plot that draws you in. By the end it all makes sense, but somehow you still want more.

I would recommend this movie to anime fans, and sci-fi fans alike. If you can cope with the initial confusion, the remainder of the film bears the marks of a classic. Extremely enjoyable.
