Mars. Days before Halloween 2071. Villains blow up a tanker truck on Highway One, releasing a deadly virus that kills hundreds. Fearing a bigger, even more devastating biochemical attack, an astronomical reward is offered for the arrest and capture of the person behind the destruction. On the space ship "Bebop," Spike Spiegel and his crew of bounty hunters (Jet Black, Faye Valentine, Ed and Ein) are bored and short of cash. But with the news of the reward everything changes.
As the eagerly awaited Cowboy Bebop feature film reunites the original director, screenwriter, composer and vocal cast, it's not surprising that the film plays like an expanded TV episode. What should be the routine capture of a two-bit hacker by Faye escalates into a deadly game of cat and mouse, as Spike and the gang struggle to prevent the evil Vincent Volaju from murdering every human on Mars. Director Shinichiro Watanabe handles the action sequences with his usual panache: inside the sinister Cherious Medical research facility, Spike fights a beautiful agent, using a push broom in a series of manoeuvres Jackie Chan might envy; the climactic duel between Spike and Vincent plays against innocent yet eerie images of a Halloween carnival. This will delight fans of the series and provide an excellent introduction for the uninitiated. --Charles Solomon --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition DVD.

I was worried before watching it that it was going to spoil me about the ending of the series (so I finished watching the series first) however it take place between episodes 22-23 so if that concerns you have no worries! It's in glorious 16:9, which I really appreciated. The VA is great as to be expected, and there's multiple nods to running gags that appear throughout the show. I know this is really nit-picky but one thing that I would've preferred would be that they had beef and bell peppers rather that instant noodles, but alas they chose to leave that little bit out. Not to worry though because it's a fantastic action movie which really keeps you at the edge of your seat with two great femme fatales and plenty of comedy sprinkled throughout! :)
Of note are the extras. There are interviews with both the Japanese and English voice cast, as well as an interesting section that compares the storyboards with the final animation (cool if you're an anime afficianado). The music is ace too - take note of the Yoko Kanno who's worked on a number of anime films and series.
At this budget price, it's nothing short of a crime to not have this in your collection.
Great characters, great story telling, great score and of course great animation. All these elements will have you revisiting again and again.
The service was excellent, two times previously I ordered this, waited two weeks and still no show. Extremely frustrating, but then thanks to musicmagpie not only the condition was fab, but I received it extremely early. Thank you so much music magpie!!!
The characters are cool, the music cooler. There are some breathtaking scenes, particularly the spaceship chase and the plot just zips along.
This is not just for kids, although teenagers will love it, anyone interested in Sci/Fi or just a good story will enjoy it.
Put aside any prejudices, sit back and enjoy
