Armitage: Dual Matrix (2002)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Robot Rights

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This is actually a sequel, but first-timers won't have much trouble understanding what's going on. Armitage is a robot in human form who peacefully lives on Mars with her husband and daughter but must travel to earth to stop an evil plot involving robot experiments. Juliette Lewis provides Armitage's voice in the English language version, and she's quite good. (Just as a warning, Ahmed Best, the voice of Jar Jar Binks, also turns up performing a minor character's voice.) For people who don't like Lewis, the disc also comes with a Japanese language track and subtitles.
