Quotes

[Last line]
Midori: It was all just like a dream. Was it a good dream, or a nightmare? I'm not sure if this is the right way to remember it, but while I was in the dream, playing Irene, I felt more alive than ever before. And I don't think I'm the only one. I still haven't found what it is that I should do. I'm searching for a paradise that's waiting for me. And what about you? You - what are you doing now?

A bank heist, a terrorist and a comic book fanatic.
22 June 2000 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

The dynamic animation and list of characters in this film's opening scene might lead you to believe that what you are about to view is either an animated film, or a mixture of animated and live action sequences. Neither is really true. Like 1997's Cat's Eye, the opening scene is the longest stretch of animation in the film. However, unlike Cat's Eye, this movie is not actually based on a comic. This is a classic bank heist gone wrong. Takeshi Kaneshiro, in a performance more like those in his television dramas than in his notable screen successes, leads a psychotic Hiroyuki Ikeuchi and a nervous Masanobu Ando through the doors of the bank at closing time. Their goal: to take the staff and patrons hostage, and liberate the institution of its assets. As their plan begins to deteriorate, Ando provides the team with fresh motivation by assigning them with character names from a comic book that he is obsessed with, allowing them to escape the severity of the situation (and the boredom of their own lives) by living that fantasy.

Space Travelers is a stylish action comedy with a decent soundtrack and a lot of pretty faces. It isn't exactly a brain-teaser, but that can play in your favour. If you are faced with an un-subtitled version, the visual comedy and slick action shots should be able to maintain your interest.
