The Further Adventures of Takeshi Kovacs.
An animated feature films based on Altered Carbon but set in between season one and season two. Kovacs is made to take on a dangerous mission by the yakuza boss Tanaseda. He gets involved with another yakuza gang while trying to protect a young girl. A beautiful CTAC agent gets stirred into the mix. Edgar Allan Poe isn't there but a very Poe-like character in the form of a Japanese hotel clerk is. The story is quite cliched but there is a lot of blood and gore action. If that is what you like, then it's a good movie. That brings us to the question of the animation. It's CG, but it's not good CG. However, it's good enough to make you think that maybe Altered Carbon should have been animation to begin with. It does make you think about the original Ghost in the Shell. If this film had been made as well as Ghost, it could have been something really worthwhile. There are a couple of narrative hints thrown in at the end that make an animated sequel possible. If so, maybe they'll get their act together a little better next time.
