They'll save the universe ...but not for free. Cowboy Bebop is a group of bounty hunters who will take any jobs as long as someone pays their bills. After a mysterious bombing that leaves countless people in an unexplainable coma, bio terrorists are blamed and a heavy bounty is placed on finding and catching those responsible. As team Bebop investigates, their only lead is a bead and the mysterious girl named Electra... but soon they find out more than what they expect and nothing of what they thought.

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (2001) is about a rag tag group of space bounty hunters who often find themselves chasing a bounty that cost more than it's worth and just so happen to save the day. Join Spike, Jet, Fei, Ed and Ein as they solve a 'bio' terrorist attack on Mars. But what they find is a (another) government conspiracy project cover up went wrong, and as usual the crew of the Bebop find themselves surround by bullets and cleaning up someone else's mess.

This is a must-have release for all Cowboy Bebop fans. The movie showcases the series and the characters as they work together to help advert disaster. More often than not, the characters are just trying to either pay off or runaway from their debts than saving the day, but in the end they (usually) barely manage to get by but prove they have a heart of gold.

The 1080p 1.75 X 1 digital High Definition image is a fine restoration from the original 35mm elements that may be the best the film has ever looked, while the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is the soundmaster from the original theatrical release at its best, but why no lossless version? Still, it'll do for now. Extras include behind the scenes featurettes, story board to scene comparisons, art galleries and trailers.
