Patlabor: The Movie ★★½

I first saw this one more than 20 years ago, as part of an anime film season on BBC Two I thought I was imagining till I found an entry for the very broadcast I watched. Perhaps I was more easily pleased back then; on this rewatch I found it a bit too thin on plot, while at the same time far too talky and padded with exposition, with only smatterings of mecha action. Not one I'd recommend for anyone new to the genre, so, but it passes the time.
