Anime Review: Space Pirate Captain Harlock

This one is a movie remake of an old Anime series. The story is pretty interesting, set in a time when humanity has colonized most of the galaxy, but with resources drained, the species is in decline. Many look back to Earth, wanting to re-inhabit it, but the small planet could not possible sustain the whole species at its vast size. A new species wide order has been formed, but a pirate named Harlock rebels against it. They story follows a young man named Logan who tries to join Harlock’s pirates, and there are many twists and turns in the plot along the way.

Although the premise is interesting, the overall story, didn’t quite come together that well, and the characters, though tragic and conflicted, fall just short of being believable and worthy of sympathy. Despite this, the graphics in this movie are pretty amazing. Apparently it cost $30 million USD to make, and you can see it in the quality of the CG animation. If nothing else, this film is worth watching just for that, and the plot, though not spectacularly executed, does hold together enough for you to tag along and enjoy the $30mil eye-candy.
