Great movie with bad English voiceovers
22 July 2004 | by (Longwood, FL) – See all my reviews

Great flick -- provided you watch it in Japanese with the English subtitles.

Having a celebrity do a voice-over for Japanese anime is nothing new. Kiefer Sutherland voiced Ross in Armitage III: Polymatrix and did a terrific job.

However, Juliette Lewis (who is given star billing for the film) delivers her lines terribly. Her emotional delivery is flat when it needs to be expressive, and expressive when needed to be flat. She mumbles and is difficult to understand through portions of the film.

Ahmed Best is even worse as Mouse. He plays Mouse as a Jar Jar Binksesque character with even more annoying voiceovers than Lewis delivers.

Having said all that, don't miss the opportunity to catch this DVD. The animation is first rate, and the action scenes are well thought out and delivered.
