R
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie is an animated science fiction mystery film directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, based on the Cowboy Bebop TV series developed by Sunrise, that centers on a the crew of the spaceship Bebop as their most recent bounty pulls them into a plot of a bioterrorist to release a virus onto the masses of Mars. When the government issued a three million-woolong reward for the capture of a mysterious and troubled Vincent Volaju, the sarcastic sharp shooting Spike Spiegel, the voluptuous Faye Valentine, a disgruntled Jet Black, and the young tech savant Ed think it is the answer to all their money woes. However, when they discover that the mystery is far darker and far more dangerous than they originally thought, the crew takes on a partnership with Electra, a tough enforcer working for the creators of the virus Vincent had stolen. It seems the crazed Vincent is out to set off a bomb with a much larger dose than what had killed over a hundred people but can they capture him in time?moreless

    Los Angeles Times

    Demonstrates how exciting and vital contemporary animated filmmaking is in Japan. The characters may not move with the fluidity of their American counterparts, but the story unfold...

    The New York Times Lawrence Van Gelder

    Notable chiefly for its eye-catching urban backgrounds and an eclectic score that ranges from jazz and country to classical and choral.

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Though it isn't the entirely original creation "Metropolis" was, Bebop is more satisfying.
