Mobile Police Patlabor Movies

 

Following the release of the original Patlabor OVA series, director Mamoru Oshii brought the franchise to the big screen with 1989's Patlabor the Movie. Set in the same continuity as the OVA series, the movie features SV2 Division 2 fighting against the clock to figure out the plan of a man who's already dead. Four years later, Oshii returned to direct Patlabor 2 the Movie, a political thriller about nationalist politics and a coup d'etat. In 2002, Fumihiko Takayama (Gundam 0080) took over the director's chair to helm WXIII: Patlabor the Movie 3, which was adapted from a manga story that also served as the basis of an OVA episode. The first two movies were initially released in the U.S. by Manga Entertainment and later on by Bandai Visual USA, while the third movie was released by Pioneer Entertainment. All three movies have been reissued on Blu-ray and DVD by Maiden Japan.
