5.0 out of 5 stars Overall: Great 31 Dec. 1999
By Plecky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I have seen many anime's (and own a lot as well) and I must say that this one definately suprised me. I thought it had great animation (definately theater quality) As for the dubbing, you got some big names doing the voices. I feel that kiefer sutherland did great at doing his part. As for elizabeth berkley, it took me a while to get use to it, but while the story unfold's, you realize how great her voice fits the role as well. Not to mention, this movie has great re-viewing properties, I was more than happy to watch this movie twice in a row (which I did!) Not to mention, it can get a little confusing, but the plot by the end is easy to understand, and the movie stays in your mind. It's hard to compare, but it's easy to prove that's it's good. You should for sure buy this if you are a anime fan. If your trying out the genre, this is a great start to your collection along with akira and ghost in the shell. Also, there definately is violence, but when the rating says "brief nudity" they mean it, there really wasn't much nudity at all, maybe 1 or 2 scenes that I can remember, which lasted for a few seconds. Not to many extra feature's, but the menu screen is put together very well. This movie is all around good, I don't know if the best, but definately on the top row of my collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars All around excellent anime! 8 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first time I had seen this movie I enjoyed it. But it wasn't until I'd seen it for the second time that it struck me what a wonderful movie Armitage 3 is. The animation is superb. Berkley and Sutherland were absolutely perfect for the voices. the plost comes across confusing at first, but it all comes together quite nicely by the end.The characters are well written and you find yourself empathising with the heroes, so that by the end you are right in the movie. Great for a first time anime expierience. (The soundtrack to this film is something I'd love to get my hands on. It pumps the movie along quite nicely. You'll sit down and watch the credits just to listen to the ending theme!)

2.0 out of 5 stars A Short and Hacked-up version of the OAV's 17 Oct. 2000
By Matt Johns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I rented this DVD expecting a typical anime movie. What I got was a wonderfully animated film -with no plot whatsoever! The reason that I even sat through the entire thing was because the Japanese AND English voice acting was good, a rarity for anime. Don't get me wrong, the animation is top-notch, and the DVD has crystal clarity. However, there is one thing that absolutely shoots this movie into the toilet. Armitage III was originally a series of 4 original animation videos (OAVs), all of which added up to about 2 hours 20 minutes of animation. Well, on the DVD there is only 1 hour 30 minutes worth of animation. That's nearly an hour that was hacked off! This does not do wonders for the storyline, which resembles a movie that has been spliced and re-spliced about 20 different times with incongruous scenes. In fact, the movie's only saving grace is the fact that some of the good elements from the OAVs, such as the voice acting and animation, are still present.
Do yourself a favor. Do not, under any circumstances, buy this DVD! It does the OAV series, which is absolutely wonderful, no justice at all. Get the original series as it was meant to be seen, and I guarantee you will be much happier. I am, because I now own all 4 OAVs and have never again set my eyes on the Poly-Matrix "movie". I suggest that you do the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great anime, but too much was cut from the OAVs 18 Oct. 2000
By MIKE LENOIR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I had rented the first volume of the original Armitage III series several years ago, and fell in love with this series. I purchased "Polymatrix" this summer, and was a little dissappointed by how much was cut from the original series. Since then I have purchased the original 4-volume series (30 minutes each, except for volume 1, which is 50 minutes). After watching the original four volumes, I can say without hesitation that they are far superior to the condensed and redubbed motion picture version. If you watched this movie and found the story and plot a little confusing, get the original volumes instead; you will enjoy this great series much more if you do!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment 9 Dec. 2001
By J. Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Why did they do this? Armitage III the series was a 4 part classic, relatively low-key, release from Pioneer. Featuring one 50-minute episode and 3 thirty minute episodes it told the story of Armitage, a robot trying to help other Third types in a future Mars colony. But, the series was hacked up and assembled into this shambles of a movie featuring dire voice-overs by Kiether Sutherland (who is a good actor) and Elizabeth Berkley (who is not). Neither actor or actress seemed to give much of an effort and the original series, with it's increased length and full scenes and low-key voice actors give Armitage a much better run.
Alas, it is virtually impossible to find.
