I can most certainly guarantee you the two hours will pass before you notice it and you will be left wanting more. The Metaphorical comparisons are spectacular never have I seen a film grapple with the issues of police brutality, counter intelligence and most importantly mental illness the way this film those. I was entertained enough to watch the whole thing. But it also reminded me of a line from the end of Sicario when Alejandro talks about surviving in a land of wolves, and how utter brutality can control. If you where also a fan of the Bethesda Wolfienstin games its obvious that the devs took inspiration from this Anime. I'm going to have to rewatch this to unpack it even more!. A bored emotionless face waiting for something to happen to make me feel something, anything at all! A dark, muddy color pallet matches the total mind-fuck bleakness of the story.
I can see why many other reviews take issue with some of the pacing, but for me it just gives a time for the griminess of the world to sink in. The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her, but ultimately she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime. I sat through the whole movie like the main character did for most of the show. Once it finished I realized I had wasted the time I spent on it. No joy was had, no message was learned and no emotions felt. I hope at least one person sees this review and skips this movie, then my time watching this will not be in vain. The Special Units' physical training is demanding and often brutal.
The Wolf Brigade is a secret section of the police force designed to counter this rebellion. Still, I highly recommend it. Some on here have taken issues with the pacing however it is in this individuals opinion that the pacing was right on point. If you want to watch a movie that will make you struggle to wonder what you are doing with your life that you waste time watching movies like this, then this is the movie for you! As with many of these stories, I found the plot to be over-complicated and a bit confusing. Covered by well-orchestrated riots, the Underground forces in the film are armed with an especially nasty type of Molotov Cocktail fire bomb and military satchel charges.
Sometime in the future, the government has become oppressive , and a resistance builds up against it. Fuse, a member of the special unit, broods obsessively about a terrorist girl who blew herself up in front of him. Beautifully drawn and well-colored anime' production. Putting his dark history behind him, he longs to live a normal high school life. Some of the men in the unit, according to rumour, comprise a vigilante group called the Wolf Brigade. The premise is that the Capital Police want the Special Units disbanded because peace and prosperity are returning to the nation, and its leaders have plotted a false and treasonous incident to disgrace a particular constable from the intimidating heavy police force. This maybe a great tragic movie.
Some of the men in the unit, according to rumour, comprise a vigilante group called the Wolf Brigade. They might go as far as seeing themselves capable of wielding mystical powers, or maybe even believe themselves to have descended from a fantasy realm. This movie mixes the surreal and the hyper-real to a very powerful effect. For Yuuta Togashi, the scars that his chuunibyou has left behind are still fresh. Insanely well directed and animated. The Red Riding Hood sub-theme is a plot twist.

This is a very sad, intense, complicated film. This truly is what it feels too watch this Anime, all and all its a great watch and time killer. The rival Capital Police believe that their anti-riot-trained police force, along with detectives and regular police patrol constables, are sufficient to police the country. Additionally, the Japanese government after the Second World War, fearful of a possible American reoccupation of their country, would never have allowed such a highly militarized and heavily armed police force to operate. There are elements of terrorism , government corruption, and even a kind of relationship between the two characters at the forefront of this movie, even though they are really on the opposite sides of the law.
The violence is actually quite brief, but extremely visceral. Why drink Beer when you can have a fine wine. The writing is tight, exciting, and sometimes very sad , with elements of very personal narrative. In this hilarious and heartwarming story of a boy who just wants to leave his embarrassing memories behind, the delusions of old are far from a thing of the past. This is one of the best Movies not only anime movies ever made.
We have even got to the best part yet the Animation, my god I have never seen Animation this good other then studio ghibli and the hand drawn animation is top notch in my opinion while I like allot of modern Anime there is nothing like Hand Drawn animation. . . . . . .
