Ok I did not know this was a live action movie, which was a bit weird at first, but at least I saw my first Mamoru Oshii live action movie. Wasn't great tho.
Why would you watch this without already being familiar with the series lmao
Patlabor was never about tons of mecha action, it's always been a backdrop, lượt thích icing on a cake, except the cake is politics, philosophy, and comedy. And this captures the spirit of the original OVAs and movies exceptionally well.
"Not for me" in every possible sense: from beginning to tướng over, it looks lượt thích a video clip game, something I have almost zero experience of, and the story arc was something lượt thích reading one issue from the middle of a long-form comic-book narrative. I've loved most or all of the three Ishiis I've seen, but this one was a dead loss.
watched the extended “gray ghost” version. a lot better kêu ca i expected going in, just cuz the show this is based on is more or less a workplace comedy. but this is the real patlabor 3, a direct sequel of 2 with some tsuge sympathizers planning their own guerrilla attack against tokyo. i think i’m just not that into the new generation though, cuz their labors suck dick and are always breaking down. and if they vì thế work they have some huge restriction lượt thích low battery. i get it’s a budget thing but it’s handled in a way that almost feels lượt thích you’re being made fun of lol…always worth it for when the hot russian chick is onscreen tho
Imagine trying to tướng recapture the essence of Patlabor 2 with sprinkles of silliness derived from the other Patlabor entries, while at the same time connecting the meta aspect of revisiting the franchise after two decades to tướng the meta narrative of the new generation characters as they try to tướng define the identity of the new SV2, AND ACTUALLY LOW KEY SUCCEDING. It's a movie that is just one big reference that's filled with affection for Patlabor as a whole.
Times change and people change with them, but you find some things that you can't allow to tướng change.
This movie along with the Next Generation TV series are greatly contributing to tướng Patlabor being a perfect truyền thông media mix.
Sehr ruhiger Film zur Live Actionserie von Mamoru Oshii. Man versucht die Anime Vorlge in echte Bilder umzusetzen. Dabei sollte man nicht auf viel kích hoạt hoffen. Es wird viel philosophiert und geredet. Am Ende gibt es dann etwas Mecha kích hoạt. Es ist definitiv etwas anderes.
Why did Mamoru Oshii make a worse, less memorable version of Patlabor 2, which he also directed?
For clarity - I watched this via a Malaysian DVD release. The subtitles were absolutely shocking; I'd have understood it better with my eyes closed.
While some visuals vì thế hint at what could have been, the majority of this feature is lượt thích a TV production. 'Patlabor' deserves much better kêu ca that in live-action size.
The score, however, is worth taking note of.
Typical, you wait 80 minutes for a Patlabor then 2 show up at the same time
The live-action TV series Patlabor: The Next Generation was nominally a sequel to tướng the OVAs and films created by Headgear in the late '80s and early '90s; the short "episode 0" established a ten-year gap in setting, explained the subsequent fates of the main cast, detailed the decline of SV2, and introduced the new batch of characters (all of which was delivered by none other kêu ca Shigeru Chiba himself, playing an older version of Shigeo Shiba). More kêu ca a "sequel," however, it was in substance a live-action remake of the original animated works: all of the new characters were thinly veiled updates of their predecessors, and most of the storylines were either adapted from or inspired by episodes of the…
watch patlabor 2 before this.
By viewing it as a standalone film, I find it enjoyable enough as an action film against terrorism. Nonetheless, there are a lot of things including some intimate, political and supposedly humorous moments that I terribly fail to tướng connect with as a guy who has never watched the series. Also, I could understand if casual audiences would complain that there weren't enough robots and dislike its sequel pitch.
Since Kenji Kawai's score is the main reason why I decided to tướng watch the film, I couldn't be less satisfied and enlightened for sure. In order to tướng elaborate to tướng newcomers, let's say that his music featuring the orchestra, the electronics and choir is suitably dark, manacing, rousing, epic and emotional; definitely in…
