Critic Reviews for Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade
I liked the idea of the movie more than the movie itself -- though sections of it are mind-blowing.
Jin-Roh's hand-rolled look and ripped-from-the-sci-fi-headlines plot are an asset and a relief.
It's an evocative anachronism.
Confirms my preference for live-action cinematography, without any tricks or conceits to place quotation marks around an already fantastic illusion of reality.
While it uses the advantages of line-drawn animation to fashion a setting that would cost hundreds of millions to produce as live action, the dramatic scale is minimal and tepid.
Audience Reviews for Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade
Unusual for an anime to be so dull and morose. Such a shame.
I wasn't really feeling it. The characters were a bit shallow. A lot more could've been done with the theme wolf-brigade and the red riding hood connection. I would've liked a little more mystery.
Perhaps the plot tries too hard in the middle to give more heart and complexity to its sci-fi premise, but it's psychologically and philosophically intriguing enough to keep it afloat between the action-filled beginning and end. Plus, amazing visuals, which is why most of us watch Anime anyway, right?
