Movie Reviews

A thoughtful and exciting ride
Colonel Saito | North Potomac, Maryland | 09/24/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"So the world is at an end due to the melting of the polar ice caps (a quite plausible scenario). A mad scientist has begun to engineer aquatic mutants for unknown reasons, and humankind is on the verge of extinction, with a last hope- a group of submarines manned by the best naval forces all over the world.

It seems a bit contrived at first, but Blue Submarine 6 engaged me in it's story far more than I thought it would. At first look, it might come off as a simple war anime series. Thankfully, the series is not as one dimensional, and far more realistic (at least in my eyes) than any far-off mecha space war (see: Gundam). The apocalyptic landscape and philosophical questions addressed were enough to hold my interest, and the jazz and blues music were a good complement to the underwater sea battles (a refreshing change from the oft-overused jpop and classical tunes of other series) as well as the more thoughtful bits.

The CGI was also done well, the animation is clean, and overall the series is worth a watch."
