Not the best anime I have seen, but not the worst.
4 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

I only saw this one once, and from what I remember I enjoyed aspects of it and disliked parts of the film as well. I clearly remember the ending being a huge let down, but there was some nice action up to that point as well. The movie has a dude who is after robots for the obvious revenge reasons that are used quite frequently in anime movies. I say it is sort of like the "Galaxay Express" movies, but this film is inferior to both of those flicks. The hero in this one looks a bit lame too, so another few points off for that. The bad guys are rather good though as they have interesting motives not found in movies these days. There is a bunch of weird stuff in this one too featuring a robotic swan, but all in all this film is typical of a lot of anime movies, it just does not look all that good for the most part and the plot tries to be to deep as well, never really achieving what its goals are like say a very good anime "Akira". I will not say never watch this movie, but I will say I would not really try that hard to find this one.
