While this film was nominally based on Edward E ("Doc") Smith's "Lensman" books, significant elements of the plot have actually been lifted from DC Comics "Green Lantern", which is fitting, as "Green Lantern" pretty much bases major parts of its background and setup on the "Lensman" stories.

Two English dubs of the movie exist. The first, made in 1987 by Harmony Gold, is cut by about 15 minutes and replaces much of the music with stock music from the Robotech movies. The second English dub, released in 1990 by Streamline Pictures, is uncut (although a new English ending credit roll replaces the original Japanese) with music and sound effects intact. See more »
Heard of this anime film about ten years ago, and finally got off my duff and watched it on VHS. So much in it to recommend, I don't know where to start, except that it's a classic Sci-Fi adventure like some of the early Heinlein juvenile novels (never read the Lensmen books, but I will now) and the Star Wars Trilogy, just in anime form. The characters are interesting, and the music score and rock tracks go well with all the futuristic imagery. I am really wishing for this to be on DVD soon!
