Movie Reviews

The GIG continues...
Xeon Negotiator | MA, USA | 09/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Now that Section 9 is up and running again, their skill can be put to good use. Crisis is growing in Japan as whispers of war and need for independence rise out of the refugees, after the Refugees Special Treatment Act is repealed. While at the same time it seems members of the special self-defense force have their own plans. And what roll does the Individual 11 play in the whole scheme...

Getting better but there's still room for improvement...
Too Right | Lower Shadowlands | 01/05/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I like this installment better than either 2nd GIG Vol.1 or the last installment of the first season.
The potential of this series can be best illustrated by the use of Hideo Kuze in the "Inductance" episode.
Strangely, the scope of the entire season seems to be apparent by the 8th episode ( Fake Food ). This is reminiscent of the appearance of Aoi in the 11th episode of the first season. It makes me wonder: is the series going to meander in "stand-alone" type episodes for three installments or so, before finishing with the inevitable conclusion?

There are the usual bumps in the road... I don't know if it's the subtitle translation or what, but I sometimes feel like the script is contradicting itself. For example: a bunch of groups calling themselves the Individual Eleven, who never identified themselves as the Individual Eleven. Huh?!

One more thing: the huge amount of audio "hiss" during the character design features. I don't recall this from earlier chapters. Oh well."
