A compendium of the worst cliches of Japanese animation -- two hours of chases, laser attacks, machine-gun battles, spilled stage blood, computer-animated backgrounds and hokey dialogue.

The movie, even at 124 minutes, has the densely packed sweep and go-for-it pep of a pop epic.

Grade-school violence freaks may find a few kicks here, but even they may have trouble coping with this ugly movie's ending about eight separate times.

An impressive achievement, often suggesting a weird expressionist blend of 2001, The Warriors, Blade Runner and Forbidden Planet.

A phenomenal work of animation with all the hallmarks of an instant cult classic.

The most expensive animated feature ever made in Japan... and it's easily the most impressive, as well.
