AD Police Files 1-3... Two out of three ain't bad

AD Police Files 1-3 (1990): 8 out of 10: Despite a third episode, thatis almost a scene for scene remake of Robocop; this is one of thesharpest Anime around.

Sexistand racist in that unconscious Japanese way with over the top violenceand just a dash of nudity AD Police does not fail to entertain. Thefirst two tales are gripping and inventive if a little hard to follow(Character development is minimalist at best) with great moral arksabout the downfall of artificial parts and artificial people.

Thethird episode is a letdown and quite skippable. Tons of action keeps ADPolice moving even when the story seems to stall. The plots of thefirst two episodes are also filled with surprise, and thatalways-delightful "I always wished someone would do that" feeling.

Theanimation is very well done, with different styles mixing it up togreat effect. At only three episodes, however it left me wanting more.That is usually a good sign.
