1: The Movie


A sci-fi/action story that nearly replicates Blade Runner on Mars, Armitage the Third is a middling quality film. The character designs are somewhat schizophrenic, even given the story's point that the robot's are suppose to be cute and childlike. It's just that the line quality of the men is awkward and not consistent. The background work is decent, though it does seem like much of it has been lifted from other cyberpunk films. The design work is also solid.

What makes Armitage the Thrid unusual is the fact that name Hollywood stars, such as Elizabeth Berkley and Kiefer Sutherland, provide the Engish voices for the two leads (Armitage and Ross, respectively) and the sound engineering (at least on the DVD) is excellent.

Please note that Armitage the Third Polymatrix: The movie is a compilation of previously released material.

Volume 1: "The Movie" Plot Summary:

Someone or something is killing women on Mars. Ross Syllabus, a cop recently transferred to the Mars Police Department from Earth, quickly finds himself involved in the case.

Complicating the situation is Syllabus's distrust of the omnipresent androids. Events begin to snowball and Ross finds himself with a new partner, a deepening mystery and lots of action on his plate.
