Great Story and good animation considering...
Great story and good animation when you consider it has twice the animation cels per frame. EG Left and Right Polarization. I saw this at the Theater which thankfully had a decent projector so the 3d effect wasn't lost. The story is basic Sci Fi pulp but at the time it was finally something other than Disney (I had yet discovered Anime) and for that I was thankful. Over all it is a great piece of movie escapism that sadly doesn't seem to be made anymore.
