Movie Reviews

Definately a favourite
Richard Price | Auckland, New Zealand | 04/08/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Far into the future crime is so uncontrollable that the police force recruits convicts serving hard time to act as special police agents. In return for services rendered the crims will have their sentenced reduced until they eventually reach freedom. However, if they fail the explosive collar around their neck is detonated.The main characters are Ben-ten, Gogl and Sengoku and each episode focusses on them. All the characters are brilliant in their own ways but i would have to say Sengoku the rockabilly greaser and Gogl the computer hacking punk are my favourite. Though Ben-ten and Hase Gawa (their contoller) aren't without their charm.OEDO 808 is well written with a good story and very, very good characters (i just cant help seeing traits of my own frustrations in them) and witty dialogue, the best of which is delivered by Sengoku in anger to his situation and surroundings. Also the english language version is actually pretty good and not lacking as in most dubs.This is a real gem of a series that i scored in a second hand shop in a hick town in the middle of nowhere that was so cheap i had to purchase them. Must have been my lucky day!!!"
The best short sci-fi anime ever?
Peter murphy | United Kingdom | 12/07/1999

"The cyber city collection is one of the finest anime's ever produced. It combines exellent voice talents with high action stories that are related by the three main convicts in the manga. The story centres around the city of oedo 808 having to hire notorious criminals to serve as cyber police men. However if they fail a mission they are executed by means of a collar around their neck. Naturally the three are less concerned with public order than they are with trying to subvert the justice system. This anime contains a great deal of swearing and violence and a soundtrack that perfectly suits the Matrix style plots. Overall it makes an exellent purchase especially as the DVD format makes the visuals and sound that much better."
The best SF-Action Serie ever!
Starship Trooper | Netherlands | 12/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The best SF serie I've ever seen! The year is 2808 AD.3 criminals each sentenced to about 300 years and with the possibility of parole of about 0.004% are offered a deal by the state:spend the rest of their lives rotting away in the space prison they're in or work for the special service section of the Cyber Police.With every A-class Cybercriminal they catch the state knocks of a bit of their sentence.Any chance of getting your freedom has gotta be better than no chance,right? The catch is that they get to wear explosive collars in case they try to escape.3 episodes. Each concentrating on one of the criminals. Any SF Anime fan should check this out!It's AWESOME!"
Truly one of the most spectacular futuristic anime's ever!

"I bought Cyber City Oedo 808 data:1 from amazon about a week ago and the only thing I regret is that i didn't buy the other 2 Cyber City videos at the same time and saved on shipping, now the suspense is killing me as i wait for my other 2 to arrive. This is truly one of the most spectacular anime's i have seen in a long time. The beautiful city skyline, the futuristic vehicles, and the awesome original characters are just the beginning. This movie is a hacker's dream and a anti-computerization person's nightmare all rolled up into one. The year is 2808 A.D. Your a prisoner doing hard time on a space orbital prison. Your in for life times 3, you get a choice, you can stay aboard this space prison and rot or you can join the special cyber force of the police doing the high risk suicide jobs not even the most seasoned cop would lay a finger on. Your job is to track down and capture an A-class prisoner, violent, highly skilled murders, asassins, and just about any skum you can imagine. For every criminal you catch the state is prepard to knock a bit of time off your sentence so one day you may be free again. There's just one make sure you don't head for the border [excuse the pun] your fitted with a special collar. If you try to escape, fail a mission, or don't check into headquarters within 24 hours the collar will detonate! Your mission, fifty-thousand people are trapped within the tallest and most secure building in the city. A computer genius has seized control of the building, it's robotic matainence droids which are now killing machines, and now he's linked up to the goverment's military computer! He has access to the city's weaponary arsenal which includes a 30 gigawatt laser cannon which orbits the planet and he's targeting the building, and to make matters worse you've only got 24 hours to complete this mission and check-in or your head will literally explode! The dubbed version is excellent! The voices are very good and the background music makes this anime even better. Wild plot, awesome technology and killer effects! I highly recommend it."
