Audience Reviews for Battle Angel (Gunnm)

This is an anime at the best! This is all-the-time my favourite sci-fi-action anime just before I bought the Manga comic book series. The movie works because it's small. Everything is good but not exceptionally good. Because of this running time of only one hour is perfect. Be advised, though an animated feature, Battle Angel is graphic violent. It is NOT a cartoon. No cute bunnys. At first the whole thing with Gally being built as a "warrior" machine fails to impress me, I know It's a vital part of the plot but the fighting parts... It's just taking pleasure in super-violence, the monsters are really but-ugly. But then I figured the violence-theme is really just contributing to the sense of this grim fictional-world and the contrast to this which is the love story of the film.
