Not "Big" Enough
2 April 2000 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I rented "Big Wars" because I like dark, mecha-stuffed Anime. I got my share of shadowy skylines and dreary airports, but the movie does not fit the title. One would expect to encounter many many battles, but there is only one small battle. Slow-moving, and with its fair share of subplot, I wouldn't suggest this movie unless you want to study the animation and mood.
