Overspecialize and you breed in weakness.

Yes.
Aelric
this is an example of the exceedingly rare "good animes"
Hodge
Agreed.

Scynne
Correction: It is one of the exceedingly rare "good, popular animes"

kiint
shooting up the tree is just one of the many, many subtleties in this sequence

Merzbau
It's a Tree of Life ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tree_of_life_%28science%29 ), with humanity at the top. I dunno about subtle, but it's certainly an effective image. Also note the transitional fossils that get the crap shot out of them.

Urist
Are they cyborgs or just robots? whatever...
dead_cat
Cyborgs.

kiint
cyborgs, the remaining human spirit is the "ghost" in some sense

SolRo
Only the brain is really human.


ani-beard

Caminante Nocturno
Shiro Masamune is a very talented pervert.
Aubrey McFate
You'd both get along well, I suspect.

Aubrey McFate
You can tell that the Wachowskis watched this right before starting on the Matrix.
SolRo
They admit as much.

Cinnamon Imperialist
Legend has it that they showed the movie to some studio-types and said "We want to do this, but in real life."

Screwtape
As well as reading "The Invisibles".

FABIO2
Toasty Frog was right. I think the reason they kept having her get naked was to remind you that it was supposed to be a woman.
garcet71283
Actually, I think the excessive nudity in the movie actually enforces that they are not human.

The nudity in the film is almost like the nudity in classical sculpture, very sterile and matter-of-fact.




That and Masumune has iterated that he likes to draw women's asses.

SolRo
I think they were being realistic as much as anything else, the optical camo they use is on the skin, you cannot go completely invisible while wearing all your clothing.


Though the TV series completely throws that out the window to make it airable.

FABIO2
You people should really listen to yourselves sometime.


SolRo
Oh no's! Someone's afraid someone on the internet might think they're nerdy!

What are you, 14 years old?

garcet71283
We are on poeTV....

I think that sums it up right there.

Caminante Nocturno
FABIO2, that means almost nothing coming from you and you know it.

Hooker
One star for anime.
Xenocide
Sorry you can't appreciate good film.

Sudan no1
stop pretending you don't love the fuck out of naked robot fights.

kingarthur
Beautiful movie as is the sequel. Mamoru Oshii can make me his cabana boy for directing these and Avalon.

Also, subtext alert: Bato and Kusanagi have an unacknowledged thing for each other, which is possibly supressed due to their both being post-human.
Merzbau
Also: I'm not ususally one to nerd out about such things, either in movies or real life, but Batou's gun at the end of the clip is FUCKING BADASS. Bullets the size of a fire extinguisher!
Xenocide
Now this is what I'm talking about.
Samisyosam
Great art and great directing. I thoroughly enjoy it when a cartoon, anime or not, can mix wild visuals with a realistic sense of proportion. It's a shame because 99% of anime does not have that. All of its talent is squandered making thoughtless and repetitive crap. I could do without the highly exaggerated movements, quivering facial expressions, tentacles or wavy-lined "ohmygodthisdudeisflyingthroughtheair" action shots. Seriously Japan, get laid and lay off the caffeine.
Keefu
I saw this movie when I was around 7 or 8.

Man that was a liberating experience.
Screwtape
-1 for bad voice acting. For all I know, the original Japanese was just as bad, but at least subtitles mask it.
Harveyjames
Guys this film is not good :(
Caminante Nocturno
You are incorrect.

Dr. Lobotomy
What was the point of her over stressing her body and ripping it to shreds? Beyond needing her helpless in the next sequence, the whole thing is stupid.

In the cybernetic future they can hook up brains to robot bodies and the internet with a quick surgery but don't have a built in warning indicators when whatever retarded thing the cyborg is trying to pull off is going to totally fuck up their shit?
Mike Tyson?!
From what I've seen of the whole series, she just doesn't give a shit if her body gets totally destroyed because she can just get a new one. If ripping her arms completely off was going to get that hatch open then the arms are a small price to pay. You've never, ever, tried to pick something up and hurt your back from lifting too much?

FABIO2
It's so people can jerk off to muscle women getting torn to bloody shreds. THIS IS ART, PEOPLE

Pangalin
The greatness of these films is tempered somewhat by my knowledge of the horrid, horrid comics they derive from.
ashtar.
Great animation, and a great setting–and yet somehow burningly, intensely, boring. Nothing happens, nothing continues to happen, long non sensical exposition of some really simple idea, some violence, nothing happens again, the end.

The series, however, it just completely unwatchably horrible.
Cinnamon Imperialist
How could you not enjoy Philosophy 101 lectures from sentient tanks with little girl voices?

Baby Finster
The best scene in the film; gets -1 star for being attached to a 20 minute scene of horribly boring low-grade philosohpical exposition (aka the boat scene).
BornAgainCannibal
Fuck the bouncers, this is good stuff
AgentOrange
Why do so many fucking jerks insist on rating the context of clips? Or the genre? Or the medium?

If you like action movies, or anime, or robots or fucking water effects this sequence is awesome. Get over yourself.
FABIO2
seriously, can't a guy enjoy his dismembering muscle women fetish?

Adramelech
Five stars because I'm not a giant douchebag.
The McK
I was sorely tempted to dock this a star because it marks the point that an entire generation went "Oh wow animes!" and we all know what followed.

But then I watched it and realized the Major's voice actress sounds uncannily like Angel Cop. And that's a neat concept!
coprolalia
Got hooked by stuff like Robot Carnival and wished on some bad star it were easier to get.
A few years later it's everywhere and we're all giant faggots.

Borborygmus
um... Akira?

Borborygmus
I found this movie pretty dull. I always fast forward to this scene which is where shit finally starts to happen. A few more scenes like this and the movie would have been liked by more than just critics.
vissarion
If you had played the music from that scene out of context for me I would never have imagined that it came from a scene with a naked cyborg fighting a spider tank.
Aubrey McFate
Also: Heavy vs. Spy.
j lzrd / swift idiot
Borborygmus, TheMcK, and Adramelech are full of truth and justice.

Although what FABIO2 says above is true also. This scene is canon in the Cartoon Cyborg Muscle Woman Dismemberment Gun Fetish community. Tell 'em, Caminante!

(Oh god I hope there really is such a community out there. Make it happen PoE)

First anime I got on VHS =)

I love the movie, but the show is way better. Still 5 stars.

Two tolerable movies, one HORRIBLE series.
