One of these days I need to get around to writing an essay on this movie
Thematically and tonally scrambled, Galaxy Express 999 attempts an interesting alternate telling of the series story, this time including the crew from Captain Harlock. Unfortunately these characters seem to serve little purpose, other then to be mysterious. For those who know about both universes, it's an interesting watch. For those less versed, it may be a touch confusing. Despite a mildly convoluted plot, GE999 ends up being extremely entertaining between its beautiful settings, interesting characters, and lively action scenes.
