When the level of Labor accidents begin to escalate around Tokyo Bay, police detectives Kusumi and Hata are assigned to investigate. What they discover leads to a series of government cover-ups, conspiracy concerning a new biological weapon entitled WXIII-Wasted Thirteen and a tragic, personal connection to Hata.

The third movie is usually the weakest in a trilogy and WXIII is no exception. However, the third movie is also usually utter shite and WXIII is far from that! A well written and paced story, consistently great animation, a soundtrack that compliments the visuals well but for all of that... Patlabor 3 isn't close to as good as the first movie, let alone the second! Something to do with the fact that Mamoru Oshii did not direct the film no doubt.

Something strange is happening in Tokyo Bay.Underwater labors are being destroyed,people are turning up dead and speculations begin to spiral once a picture of a strange creature is spotted.Detectives Kusumi and Hata must uncover the culprit of the Tokyo Bay terrorism while at the same time uncover a possible government coverup.

There's three main premise you expect from a Patlabor title;brilliant animation,a strong storyline and carefully choreographed mecha action.Patlabor movie 3 does a good job of blending all these.

The animation is top notch.Drawing are done with great detail and rich colour.The only minor flaw would be the character design which at times looks shoddy read more

For years, "Akira" was the Gold Standard, the movie that you showed to your non-anime fans to turn them into true believers. With "Patlabor WXIII: The Movie", "Akira" is dethroned. This movie, is, without a doubt the new feature movie anime that all others will be measured against. It's a movie that takes it's time, in a poetic way, to tell the story of two detectives who are trying to solve a series of brutal murders. Like the best episode of "Homicide: LOTS" or "NYPD Blue" the story gradually unfolds involving bioengineering, death of loved ones due to cancer, a tragic failed attempt at romance read more
