Enforcer Teppei Sugou, former ace pilot of the National Defence Army's 15th Integrated Task Force, is visited by a scout from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and invited to rejoin the military. While considering the offer, he recalls his last months of service.

His last mission, Operation Foot Stamp, had been a highly classified military strike against the Southeast Asian Union. The operation quickly went south for the ground forces, and Sugou's First Guardian drone was ordered in as air support to drop emergency supplies for the ground units and then return to base. Following orders against his own judgement, Sugou abandoned his comrades on the field.

Many lives were lost during the operation, including Itsuki Otomo, Sugou's commanding officer. However, three months later, following a massacre at the Ministry of Defence, Otomo was spotted at the scene on camera. Now a suspect in an act of terrorism, Sugou cooperates with Enforcer Tomomi Masaoka and CID Division One as they hunt his former mentor down.

It is very difficult to rate this as a stand-alone movie since what it does is simply to enlarge the PP universe by offering the viewer some insight on some characters (thus developing them) --> The whole package heavily relies on PP background.
The overall mark should be close to a 9. Why?

Considering the apparent purpose of the movie (developing characters), I'll start off with them. Most of First Guardian takes place prior to S1, thus we'll have a different suite of figures. The one's that stand out the most are Masaoka, Teppei and Aoyanagi, especially since this movie reveals in detail the tragedy behind their read more

This is gonna be a tough one to review, I think. I guess we'll do what we can.

So, I think straight away, I want to talk about the characters in this film because they really shined. I've said this before about Psycho-Pass, but each character's personality and their relationships to each other are always written so well. This film wasn't an exception to that, and in fact, it did it especially well. For this being a prequel to everything Psycho-Pass, I wasn't expecting much. However, the plot to this film was able to develop certain characters very nicely and establish others more firmly.

After really disliking Case 1, I was expecting Case 2 to be equally bad. But it is actually good.

Now, one hour is way too short for a movie, so it still feels a bit rushed and some characters get so little camera time that their appearances feel more like a cameo. But the story is solid. Nothing outlandish, just a plain old revenge tale, but solid indeed. And we get a great deal of character development as this takes place before season 1, so we get a peek at some characters life before that time.

It also gives us a look at how the military functions read more

In my continuous questions of why cashgrab sequels keep being made, we arrive at another Psycho Pass movie. Perhaps a little introduction on my philosophy about the subject is needed. Continuations have a specific purpose, since they should not only tell what happens next. Your work should feel whole regardless of future events, with no worth in simply showing what happened next, everything and nothing are both valid retorts when thinking about the future in fiction. So when writing a sequel, it is important to expand on why it’s different, maybe on the setting, tone, characters you are following, to generally excuse the different read more
