Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
The last party is about to begin
Mars. Days before Halloween 2071. Villains blow up a tanker truck on Highway One, releasing a deadly virus that kills hundreds. Fearing a bigger, even more devastating biochemical attack, an astronomical reward is offered for the arrest and capture of the person behind the destruction. On the space ship "Bebop," Spike Spiegel and his crew of bounty hunters (Jet Black, Faye Valentine, Ed and Ein) are bored and short of cash. But with the news of the reward everything changes....
Fact: Cowboy Bebop is the greatest show to have ever aired on television, animated or otherwise.
Fact: this movie is two hours of Cowboy Bebop.

Fact: this was bloody fucking awesome and it makes me miss this beautiful show even more than I already did.
See you, space cowboy.
Like most films based off an anime, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie is best watched if you've seen a few episodes of the series itself first. It's not that it really matter in terms of story, but all the main characters are already established in the show, so they don't bother doing so in the film.
Cowboy Bebop was a solid 7/10 anime. I felt that it was good, but very overrated, so I wasn't really expecting to love this movie. Thankfully this film is better than every episode of the series in my opinion. The animation here is better like almost every other animated film compared to the anime itself. The action in this is also way more entertaining than the series as well.
Highly recommended for anyone who even mildly enjoyed the series, one of the best anime films I've ever seen.
Still one of the best anime movies ever. It has everything from amazing characters to a beautiful score. And well, the plot is (like everything else in Cowboy Bebop) simply outstanding. Love the movie, love the anime. Definitely worth a watch.
P.S. Don't you dare watch the english dub version, the japanese version (with some subtitles) is so so-so-so so much better.
While reviewing the Cowboy Bebop movie, I cant shake off the legacy of the series and take this film on its own terms. In 26 episodes, the show mastered action, comedy, drama, showcases introspection, somber moments, laugh-out-loud moments and much more. Spread just under two hours, the movie plays mostly by the same rules - some characters are more under focus than others. The exposition style remains also the same, a style I felt suited the 20-minute format more. The action is top-class, probably some of the best - movie budget well utilized. Characters are adequently fleshed out, as I perhaps wished to get more backstory from the villain. And hopefully you know the regulars well before watching the movie.…
Great character design.
Refreshing music choice in fights/action scenes.
This was a great anime to watch!
This final chapter in the celebrated anime saga exists in the same spirit as other film versions of TV shows, such as Firefly/Serenity: one last adventure, with higher stakes and production values. One thing this band of space cowboys benefits from, however, is the greater success of their show. Cowboy Bebop got its full run easily, thanks to its phenomenal characters, realistic near-future setting, and the best English dub in anime.
The film version sees our intrepid crew of bounty hunters take on an existential ex-solder with a plot to unleash a bioweapon on a Martian metropolis. It's a plot straight out of sci-fi, but the unique tone and setting give it the look and feel of a 1970s crime…
I am Spike Spiegel.
I would like to say a word of rejoice and be happy that I can urinate and go to number 2 successfully. I’m also happy I watched this movie. Cool movie.
This film is fucking awesome.
THIS is the final battle that everyone wanted in the show.. I just realised that. Not as easy-going as the episodes, they took the serious route, but that's fine. It works.
A stellar film that combines all the best elements of the original series. The engaging plot, well-sketched characters, gorgeous visuals, and impeccable music is all here. While I wouldn't say it's required to view the anime first, I highly suggest it. Each character gets their own shining moment, but you'd probably feel more attached to the oddball crew of the Bebop if you've seen the show. There's even some subtle emotional continuity for Spike with the parallels between him and the villain and some familiar dream motifs. While I wouldn't say this film is revolutionary, it feels like a big budget lengthier episode of the show, and in my book, that's fucking rad. You're gonna carry that weight, space cowboy.
The only nice scenes are the fights and the ones with Ed, otherwise (it hurts to say it) this film is boring and full of cliches. If you want more cowboy bebop, go rewatch the series, don't bother with this

"Just a humble bounty hunter, ma'am"
Plot : We follow a team of bounty hunters as they fly around the galaxy looking for bounty's. But they always end up poor, one way or another. This crew consists of 4 (and a dog). Our main characters Spike, Jet, Faye and Edward set out to looks for a chemical terrorist who threatens to poison the whole of Mars. Killing everyone on it.
Review: I really really really like the anime series of the same name "Cowboy Bebop". So I was excited to see what this was like. I had a very fun time watching this movie. The first thing to talk about is the animation, this…
i hope for a live action samurai champloo and cowboy bebop one day .
Pretty much a feature length episode of one of one of my favorite shows of all time; nothing more to say.
This is taken from the very broad "Asian Cinema recommendations" list along with my own selections - I figured it'd…
