Two Thumbs Up
Ronald Hammond | Key West, FL USA | 07/22/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very good futuristic, woman in trouble story with some very serious bad guys, both machine and android. It's 2077, Japan has been ostracized by the world because they refuse to stop robotic research. In fact, Daiwa, an evil take over the world kind of Japanese corporate monster has come up with a way to turn humans into androids, thus making people better in their opinion. Of course, the humans might have a different point of view.

Vexile, the star of the show, is a member of an elite commando group called SWORD and they've been charged with sneaking into Japan and finding out once and for all what Daiwa is up to. However, the group is ambushed, but Vexile escapes with her life, her companions, save for one other, are all killed.

Vexile is taken in by Maria, who is the head of a group of Japanese who want to bring down Daiwa. Maria tells Vexile that Daiwa plans on turning all the people on the planet into androids. Maria has a daring plan to stop them and Vexile joins her.

So there you have the basics of what I thought was a very good movie. The animation was very life like, the shadows and reflections looked real. The sound effects were first rate and the people, though obviously animated, started to seem pretty darned real to me as the movie progressed. I can just imagine what they'll be turning out in a few years. Anyway, two thumbs up from me."
Stories Don't Get Any Better than this

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is 2077 and ten years prior Japan has withdrawn from the U.N. and the world community and built an electromagnetic field called RACE around their country, because the UN passed a resolution outlawing bio-robotic research and technology.

SWORD a very high-tech unit of commandos is sent into Japan, because the world finds out they've violated the UN resolution and they want proof, but the unit is ambushed and everybody is killed except Vexile and her pal Leon, who is taken prisoner. Vexile gets away by jumping into the sea. She wakes later in Maria's home and nothing is like she expected it would be.

Tokyo has been reduced to a primitive village, all the skyscrapers are gone. It's as if Japan has returned to the past. Vexile is confused, but not for long. Maria is the leader of a group of revolutionaries who wants to overthrow the Daiwa, the corperation that is running the country. Daiwa are also the manufacture of androids which are indistinguishable from humans. Daiwa's grip on the country seems unshakable.

Leon has been captured by Daiwa and Vexile must save him, but that's the least of her problems. Daiwa has come up with a scheme to turn all the humans in the world into androids and Vexile and her new gal pal Maria have to stop them. To do this they have to battle not only machine and android, but huge metallic worm like monsters as well. Can she do it? What do you think?

This movie held me captive, but then I've always been a bit of a scifi buff. The animation is very good, the soundtrack is too, but the best animation and sound in the world doesn't a movie make. It's the story that counts and this story is aces, a woman in serious trouble, tough bad guys, an insurmountable problem, stories don't get any better than this."
