Nice cyberpunk story, but nothing much in the way of animation
9 November 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

If this would have been a 90s movie, it would have been average. As such, for 2003 it seems ridiculously obsolete, especially since it has a futuristic cybernetic backdrop.

The characters and story aren't that much better either. The plot is fractured by stories that seem to have no clear start or end. At first I thought it was a poetic license of some sort, but now I am convinced it was just a bad job.

That doesn't mean that the story is not nice. Set in the Parasite Dolls universe, a near future world in which robots are ubiquitous, it follows a group of police people trying to solve a spree of "boomer" killings. Boomers are humanoid robots. However the ending is so ridiculously over the top, while the rest of the film is just plain boring or, even worse, confusing, making it an under average anime for me.
