Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Cowboy Bebop's maiden voyage to the big screen is a rousing success of anime action, style, and jazz -- much in the tradition of what made the original television show so popular. Occurring between Episodes 22 and 23 in the series, The Movie finds Bebop's crew of misfit bounty hunters attempting to halt a former soldier's plot to destroy the population of Mars with high-tech bio-weapons. The movie essentially plays as an extended episode of the show -- character introductions are even dispensed with, making the whole experience a bit more for insiders. At first it seems that director Shinichiro Watanabe isn't taking advantage of the grander movie format to reach a wider audience or expand on the series' soap opera story line involving bounty hunter Spike, archenemy Vicious, and love interest Julia. But as the film progresses, Watanabe focuses on the series' underlying philosophy and expands its themes of life, death, and dreams -- and what they mean to the enigmatic Spike. Cerebral stuff aside, the best fan service here is the cool perfection of the Bebop formula. The action is hefty, the style is unrelenting, the wit comes in volumes, and as always, it's scored to a bopping soundtrack by Yoko Kanno. In an era when the transition to movies can leave producers crossing their fingers, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie successfully takes the plunge with grace and panache. Would you expect anything less of a space cowboy?
Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
An all-star anime team conjures an urban dystopia with world-class visual pyrotechnics in the anime feature Metropolis. Directed by Rintaro X, based on the 1945 comic book by the legendary Osamu Tezuka Astro Boy, and written for the screen by anime legend Katsuhiro Otomo Akira, Metropolis is a free-form riff on imagery and themes from Fritz Lang's silent classic of the same name. To the strains of bouncy Dixieland jazz, the complex plot involves a power struggle for control of the city Metropolis and a young boy's attempt to protect a robot girl who is the proverbial key to the city's Babel-esque tower. The tower is Metropolis's architectural pride and joy, and a doomsday weapon to boot. As in the vertically stratified mega-city of Lang's 1927 silent, the aboveground life of fantasy and privilege in this city of the future conceals subterranean levels of poverty and hard labor. This juxtaposition overlaps with the familiar anime theme of man vs. machine, which plays out with shades of the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner. There are too many influences and homages fueling Metropolis to list; but suffice to say that the film's multilayered, multicultural, and multireferential texture forms a dazzling pastiche. It's all realized in a state-of-the-art blend of conventional and computer-generated animation, with a kinetically breathtaking and eye-ravishing attention to futuristic details. The juxtaposition of various styles and genres makes the film unique, a fact driven home in the apocalyptic climax, set with knockout-punch irony to the music of Ray Charles. The result transcends mere allegory to induce a psychedelic overload of metaphor that's guaranteed to both daze and dazzle.
