Storyline

A policeman, Ross Sylibus, is assigned to a unit on a Martian colony, to find that women are being murdered by a psychotic named D'anclaude. He is assigned a very unorthodox partner named Naomi Armitage, who seems to have links to the victims. To stir things up more, every victim is found to be an illegally made third-generation android, built to be almost perfect replications of humans. It becomes a race against time when the government attempts to cover up the existence of the 'Third Types', and eliminate the only ones with the evidence. And even more importantly, why are the Thirds created to be so similar to humans, even to the extent of being indistinguishable from them on every level, mentally and biologically?

Eddie: [sees Ross exiting the infirmary] Whoo--hoo--hoo! Pal, I sure hope you feel better than you look.
Ross Sylibus: I can't understand why my other arm hurts so much.
Eddie: The doctor threw in some kind of new nervous system for you, so it's probably just a side effect. At any rate, ah, there's something I wanna show ya.
Ross Sylibus: [cut to the morgue, where Eddie begins to unzip a body bag--the face is revealed] It's Kelly McCannon! Why haven't they disposed of her body yet?
Eddie: Hey! She's a real find! You just don't throw something ...

very stylish and cerebral anime
8 February 2000 | by (roanoke, va) – See all my reviews

This animated feature starts out as a typical action film but quickly changes course about a third of the way through and becomes a highly enjoyable and cerebral story.

The animation is pretty good, ableit a bit crude compared to new and similary themed films like Ghost in the Shell, and i was especially pleased that they actually put a lot of time and effort in the english dubbing (Kiefer Sutherland and Elizabeth Berkley of Showgirls fame(?) do the voice of the two main leads) that helps the film immensely.

While a bit slower paced than the recent and slightly better Ghost in the Shell, this is still much better than similar anime and a worthwhile purchase/rental.
