Movie Info

In the year 2046, humankind has discovered that the robots they created so long ago are becoming too strong to control. Fear and mistrust about artificial life is spreading, and the Seconds, the most popular line of robots, are becoming a persecuted race. In the midst of this volatile climate, a rash of murders sends the police into a fierce investigation. Detective Sylibus, a cop who's just lost his partner at the hands of a robot, is assigned to the case, but he's in for a major surprise: his new partner, Armitage, a woman who's just as tough as she is beautiful, is a robot herself. The lines between good and evil, wrong and right, and human and artificial are blurred as both Detective Sylibus and Armitage can't be sure who to trust.more

An unengaging, incoherent, derivative mess of lacklustre animation.

Audience Reviews for Armitage III: Poly Matrix

Fantastic cyberpunk adventure that focuses on whether machines can feel. So much better than Ghost in the Shell.

Super Reviewer


Their treatment of a Martian colony was surprisingly in line with what I would expect. Granted, it wasn't all _science_ fiction, but it was pretty close.

The interesting thing about this movie though, is the question it poses about what constitutes sentience, or life. There are androids walking around that would pass a Turing test with ease, are they alive? Do they have rights?

Unfortunately, it's like they wen't over budget on a fight scene which had nothing to do with the actual plot, and forgot the more interesting philisophical questions.

(Viewed Japanese Version) Very little character and uninvolving action scenes make this a real snooze-fest.
