Patlabor WXIII - The Movie (2003)
Critic Reviews for Patlabor WXIII - The Movie
[T]wo encounters with the beast WXIII - first in a darkened factory, and later in an empty stadium, to the strains of Beethoven's Piano Sonata in G Minor (Pathétique) - elevate the disappointingly flat animation into a vivid fable of monster and morality
This above-average anime puts character development before action, although there are still enough fisticuffs, robots and monsters to hold the interest of the genre's core otaku (fan boy) audience.
Its solid story makes for decent viewing.
The trouble is that it's impossible to say with any certainty what's going on from one moment to the next -- and that at the end it becomes clear it has been a great deal more inaccessible than necessary.
If WXIII ... is terrific in ambience, it fails to connect the dots of its subplots.
