In the year 2065, the next great assault against an invading race of phantom-like aliens is about to be launched. Dr. Aki Ross, a brilliant young scientist, races to find the invaders' secrets, not only to save the planet, but herself as well after her body is infected by alien particles. She teams up with the prestigious Deep Eyes military squadron, led by her old friend Grey Edwards. But as Aki, her mentor Dr. Sid, and Grey work toward a peaceful end, the scheming General Hein devises a plot to eradicate the aliens in one swift, destructive blow...even if it destroys the Earth right along with them.Written by
The DVD comes complete with a series of six animated bloopers and goof-offs.
Grey shoots through the hangar window, and then knocks himself out as his attempt to jump through it fails.
The animators go a little too weird with the scene where Neil drives through the building with the others. After they crash, we can see that the animators have placed debris (pipes, tools, stop signs) through their heads, and yet they continue to act as if nothing has happened.
In the Wasteland, Grey stumbles and accidentally shoots Aki. After realizing she's not moving, he nonchalantly sets his gun aside and starts running.
Aki drives her spaceship into Grey during the shoot-out in the hangar.
During the conference, Aki enters the room and smacks Sid upside the head.
In the final scene where Aki is solemnly carrying a dead Grey out of the Crater, she happens to sneeze, which causes both her and the dead body to break out into laughter.
This film is a dream come true for any science fiction fan. Unfortunately, this film was not as popular as it truly deserved to be. It shows how powerful the media can be when it comes to squelching a foreign (in this case Japanese) film. It is by far the best computer animation ever to be shown. If only the American computer animators could be this good! I was really sorry they took the film out of the theaters so soon... before the general public had a chance to really enjoy this film on the wide screen.
