Movie Reviews

Robots and armies and girlfriends, oh my!

"Back in the mid-1980's, the only way for the average fanboy to get anime was through friends or other such unscrupulous bootleggers. Madox 01: Metal Skin Panic was one of the first such tapes that came into my possession, along with classics like Project A-ko and Area 88. All of these, of course, were in Japanese with no subtitles. But enough with the history lesson: you wanna know about the movie. For early anime, it's actually quite good: a self-contained story (somewhat hackneyed these days) about a boy who comes into possession of a highly advanced robotic exoskeleton through dumb luck. (It literally falls off the back of a truck and into his garage apartment.) Of course, he has a chaste-but-smoldering relationship with a girl, whom he loves. Although he is at first thrilled with his newfound toy, the army soon comes looking for its weapon, sending their resident tank-commanding lunatic who just happens to hate armored suit technology in general. Things look profoundly bad for our hero -- but who is that beautiful woman with the even more advanced Madox suit? Equal parts humor and fighting robot action make this a favorite, even now."
Excellent anime from the past!!!!!!!!

"I saw this movie in the late 80s and ive loved it ever since. Been waiting a long time for this to come out on DVD. Not your typical Mecha anime. A guy trys to impress his girlfriend by whearing a mecha-suit that was found, now hes traped in it and the army is after him!! Shows how diffacult it can be to roam around in the city wearing a tank!"
