Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

 (2001)

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

2071 A.D. Planet Mars. On the eve Halloween, a tanker explodes killing and injuring more than 500 people on a freeway in the crater of Alba City. The damage extends beyond one kilometer from the center of explosion. The use of biological or chemical weapon is heavily suspected. The reward is W300,000,000.00 (Mars currency) to find out the perpetrator. Short of funds as usual, the crew of the Bebop is lured into the investigation by the staggering amount of money they could possibly receive for being able to accurately point the blame. They start a search on their own, and so begins the adventures of the young slacker, Spike Spiegel, and his cohort, the ex-cop, Jet Black, leading their gang of bounty hunters on the trail of an elusive nemesis.

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Hand animated with a few effective CGI touches, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie has a distinctly analog look that's quite different from the glossy digitally drawn series that are predominately being produced now. Instead of a flat, untextured plain, you can see natural film grain in the 1080p/AVC- encoded image, and there's been no attempt to smooth it out with DNR. This gives the picture some warmth, but it also means that it isn't as sharp or slick as most all-digital productions. That said, if you've seen the film on DVD before, the upgrade to high definition will be immediately apparent here. Outlines are bold and free from aliasing, and everything is now tighter, crisper, and more colorful. There are a few hazy looking scenes with dull blacks— sometimes intentionally so—but most of the movie is wonderfully vibrant, with rich background paintings and clean cel shadings that never fluctuate in color or brightness. Some slight compression noise occasionally joins the modest film grain, but I didn't spot any harsh banding, macroblocking, or any other potential distractions. I'm more than happy with this transfer.


Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie was released on Blu-ray in Japan with a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track, so I'm not sure why Image Entertainment's Region 1 edition only has stereo audio options. There are two tracks on the disc, the original Japanese and a serviceable English dub— using the same voice actors who dubbed the TV series—both presented in Linear PCM 2.0. Considering all the gunplay, fisticuffs, and dogfights in the film, the omission of a multi-channel audio offering is a real bummer. There's plenty of wasted opportunity here for immersive rear channel engagement, and the lack of a 5.1 track makes the film seem less like a movie and more like a standard episode of the series. That said, there's nothing particularly wrong with the front-and-center Japanese mix. Although there's no LFE output, the track has deep enough bass to handle the film's various explosions, and while the dynamic range isn't particularly broad, the music and effects are potent and clean. Gunshots are definitely powerful, and there are a few that are panned out of the front speakers from left to right so deftly that you might think the rear channels were actually activated for a split second. Dialogue is clear too, with no crackling, muffling, or other distortions. Most fans will want to stick with the Japanese track, but the English dub isn't bad if, for whatever reason, you don't feel like reading the optional English or Spanish subtitles.
