Great action focused Anime
The movie is only for those who have watched the series as it starts off with a belief you know the characters, there inter relation dynamics and how this world and its technology works. There are enough references from past for fan service while giving us a new setting and plot. For me it's been few years since I watched the show, forgotten many of the characters and the story, I felt like I missed out on elements when they get into past talks and such.
The movie is based in Cambodia, a trial capital city is built using the Sibyl System. The problem is local government having to fight rebels outside the capital area, the worse part the rebels seem to be trained by the runway enforcer Shinya Kogami. Enter Inspector Tsunemori, she goes in to resolve the past as well as the present. The story is great, lots of intrigue and suspense all throughout until the end.
The animation itself is amazing, better than the series. The artwork is gorgeous, especially the ones showing the temples of Siem Reap and the jungles of Cambodia. Also, the fight sequences are crazy awesome, the group of mercenaries are bad ass fighting machine.
I enjoyed the movie, although its more action focus than Sci-Fi story driven.
