The movie is set a year after the end of the first season of the TV series, and Miyuki and Natsumi have just returned to Bokuto station from their temporary assignments, just in time to confront a terrorist group threatening Tokyo. This is a nice continuation of the adventures of our favorite Japanese traffic cops, although it is darker in tone than the series. People expecting a light-hearted romp will be disappointed, although there are some funny moments (the most notable of which is little Yuriko trying to wield an M-60 heavy machine gun when the terrorists attack the station.) The emphasis is more on action and mystery than humor. If you're unfamiliar with You're Under Arrest, this is NOT a good place to start. The movie was written for people who had seen at least some of the show and know the back story and relationships, so if you're a YUA newbie, start with the series and come back to this later. Bottom line: If you're a fan of the series, you'll want to see this.
