The year is 2071. When villains blow up a tanker truck on Highway One, a deadly virus is released, killing hundreds of innocent people. This is merely the beginning of a greater threat to human kind and, fearing a more devastating biochemical attack, a significant reward is offered for the successful capture and arrest of the evil culprits. Bored with their current situation Spike and his rag-tag crew of bounty hunters aboard the Spaceship Bebop accept the challenge wholeheartedly – determined to track down the bad guys one way or another and cash in their reward. Ahead of them is an adventure like nothing they have ever imagined. A cult spin-off from the successful Manga TV series, brought to life by the famed Japanese Sunrise Animation Studios, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie is an electrifying full-tilt trip into a vast, colourful and dangerous galaxy.
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Reviews
“Honors the affectless beauty of the original anime art and maintains the outlaw boppiness of the series concept.” – Entertainment Weekly
“Helmer Shinichiro Watanabe's oversight of Bebop's more expansive visual canvas is impressive, bringing out details not previously seen in tale's small screen version.” – Variety
“The characters may not move with the fluidity of their American counterparts, but the story unfolds with a sinister grace that any live-action director might envy.” – L.A Times
