What a blinder...

"This is a must have for anime fans if you are into smart gunfights, and easily charm by beautiful women then I highly recommend this title. It has everything including humour, unforgettalbe music, and very funny in parts.

"City Hunter is one of the 1st anime I ever watched, and something about the silly sex humor and gun battles always caught my eye. I'll be honest, its an older anime so it's not the best animation nor are a lot of the topics current (again, because of the age). But it is BY GOD FUNNY! Especially the subtitled version of .357 Magnum. I think its worth a buy especially if you just want to laugh your head off. City Hunter is made for those who wanna watch an anime to laugh and laugh hard. I know I did. I think it's worth it and then some."
Good overall, lacking by City Hunter standards

".357 Magnum is a very good movie, but those familiar with the other City Hunter movies will notice that this one's a bit lacking. The plot tends to drag very often, more than the Motion Picture, lacking the constant action and excitement that City Hunter usually provides. There's still some humor which is handled pretty well in the dub, and an awesome final raid scene. City Hunter: .357 is still worthy of a purchase, but it's not the best one."

"For a movie made in 1990, its pretty damn good. My favorite part is when Joe's partner blows the wall open and comes in shooting. The music is classic 80's rock which is really great if you have a sweettooth for classic rock. Everytime Joe protects a different women. This time its a piano player. Out of all the women Joe protects, this has to be the worst drawn one ever. But no matter. There is still the great stuff you love about City Hunter in .357 Magnum. Joe's cool car, great action and the infamous Big Mallet which Joe encounters everytime. Ha ha ha. With comedy and action, this is an anime that would make the directors of Miami Vice proud."
