Four billion years ago, in the Andromeda Nebula, an ambitious project was launched. An ancient race of aliens, seeing that there was no other intelligent life in the Universe, set their massive supercomputers the task of seeding more races that could grow to sentience. The project was known as the Omega Program. The human race was the result of this project.
However, humans were not the only races to grow from the Omega Program, and lurking in the future is the deadliest threat the human race has ever faced. In time, the products of this Program are destined to clash in violent opposition. Hopelessly outnumbered by the technologically superior enemy, Earth has one last hope—the secret fail-safe of the Omega Program—the Delta Boy, living avatar of the supercomputer that began life on Earth.
His only problem is staying alive long enough to save his future—and that of all humanity...
Something like a decade ago, Anime was pretty hard to come by in the UK. Seeing it on the TV was even rarer. That's where Sci-Fi Channel stepped in to help out by airing a number of anime series, and films, including Tenchi Muyo, Akira, DevilMan, and this.
A contest has turned my interest in Anime into an Obessession when I read up on Anime, read about Tenchi Muyo then saw an Ad for Tenchi Muyo on the TV. I tried to watch every anime I could find on the TV. Unfortunately I included this.
Tapping it overnight, and then watching it... I was unsure what
the bloody hell I was watching. The Thing seems to have a plot included for a TV series, condensed into whatever time this hell lasted for. It rushed from one thing to the next, ending up in a mess that you could not understand. Nor could you find any emotional attachment to anything within.
Early on, a kinda main character dies. Then a couple minutes later, we're meeting her identical sister. You won't shred a tear for the first sister, and all references to her death etc, are kinda narmy.... There was a statue to her and stuff, but bloody hell, it was just two minutes ago for the viewer... I can't remember if there was a time jump (I actually think the Hero may tme travel or something), but it certainly didn't feel like there had been enough time for it to settle in my mind.
When I originally saw this, I was convinced it was a TV series condensed into a film, and that was to blame. However, since that wasn't the case, I think it was just plain bad.
This is not a so bad it's hilarious either. You can't follow this thing, so you can't tell if it is funny or not. Even if I do remember the plot elements I did figure out to be pretty damn generic.
Just do yourself a a favour and don't watch this. Instead recommend it to someone you don't like or something.
But remember kids, friends don't let other friends watch Armageddon.
