Classic manga...By deanono from London, UK , 20 Aug 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The Japanese form of animation that is Manga/Anime can irritatingly be a hit or miss affair. The genre can be as spectecular as any Hollywood blockbuster when given the right treatment and it seldom comes more polished than this. Golgo 13 is the story of assasination and revenge with the final twist being the revelation of the client in the equation. The feature is edge-of-seat breath-taking throughout, contains superb animation and is surprisingly well thought out. If you are new to Manga/Anime this feature will leave you wanting more and more and more:) - dont miss it!

Professional starting to look AmateurishBy Roddenberry (40 reviews) from Bristol , 06 Jul 2013Showing it's age and a film that could probably do with a remake for a new generation as some of the graphics are a bit ropy. Good story, well told and an enjoyable watch.
I think I could be thick..By Dan from Kidderminster, England , 08 Aug 2009I already had this film on dvd and I rented it without thinking.
then when it arived i felt so stupid it was unbelievable.
But anyway, I would recommend this film to anyone who loves manga.
I loved this film from start to finish.
Not what the reviews cranked it upto be.By a customer from North Yorkshire , 21 Jan 2006I must protest to these rave reviews, I'm not a manga buff but I know poor animation when I see it. The low frame rate did nothing for my suspended disbelief and to couple that was a great deal of corner cutting. Towards the end is a cheaply intercut cgi sequence which reminded me of virtua racer on the megadrive. The bad guys were done badly and you just got the sense of rushed job throughout. It's what you might have liked when you were 12 or 13.
Unique!By Dingle from uk , 11 Mar 2005The whole concept of Golgo 13 is unique, it takes everything that you think of for it and turns it on it's head, the first time you watch it it'll keep you guessing all the way through, although once you have seen it that first time parts of the film tend to loose they're charm as you know exactly whats coming
Classic AnimeBy Noel from Darwen , 22 Feb 2005This film is a classic of the anime genre and was just as good as when i watched it the first time many years ago. Anyone interested in Anime i would definetly recommend this film. Go get it now!
