Brilliant early anime classic.
I bought a VHS copy just the other day on the internet. It's a brilliant retro anime classic. I always loved it ever since i first saw it when i was a kid. It seems to be largely forgotten and the chances of it being released on DVD are very poor. Fans of classic anime will love it. It gives a picture of a happier more interesting future than that shown in other darker sci-fi movies. The English dub wad made by the same actors who did all those old kung-fu movies(If you've seen Lama vs Shaolin,then you'll notice that the voice of the leading actor is that of Ken's). Brilliant music too by Joe Hisaishi(yes,the same guy who wrote the music for most of Hayao Miyazaki's movies). I think it's very cool and entertaining movie even if you haven't seen it before. It's not too long either(about 80 mins)and the plot is simple(Bad guys steal a tank and the good guys have to get it back). Lucky for me the copy i bought was still sealed and very cheap. Get a copy if you can. Highly entertaining. 10/10
