Synopsis

Year 2116—The Japanese government begins to export the Sibyl System unmanned drone robots to troubled countries, and the system spreads throughout the world. A state in the midst of a civil war, SEAUn (the South East Asia Union), brings in the Sibyl System as an experiment. Under the new system, the coastal town of Shambala Float achieves temporary peace and safety. But then SEAUn sends terrorists to Japan. They slip through the Sibyl System and then attack from within. The shadow of a certain man falls on this incident. In charge of the police, Tsunemori travels to Shambala Float to investigate. The truth of justice on this new ground will become clear.

    Not a bad addition to the Psycho-Pass franchise

    It’s the year 2116 and Japan is more or less the only stable country in
    the world thanks to the introduction of the Sybil System, a
    bio-computer surveillance system built to pacify the country and
    replace the police. The system is now subtly taking over various less
    notable roles of the government one at a time as well due to its
    unmatched rationality and effectiveness. For the first time since its
    introduction, the Japanese government has agreed to export the Sibyl
    System to another country. SEAUn or the South East Asia Union is a
    neighboring territory torn by a long-running civil war. The strongest
    of the armed factions has managed to set up a military government but
    now needs help with restoring order and defeating the rebels and the
    Sybil System should be able to help with both. This experiment will
    show how well the Sybil System can be implemented outside of pacifist
    Japan. Meanwhile, a small team of armed rebels from the SEAU manages to
    enter Japan in secret, but is then intercepted by Inspector Tsunemori,
    the protagonist of the TV series the movie’s based on, and her team.
    One of the rebels is caught and forcibly brain-scanned. His fragmented
    memory reveals that Shinya Kogami, Tsunemori’s former enforcer who went
    rogue and disappeared three years ago is now one of the rebel leaders.
    Tsunemori asks to be sent alone to Shambala Float, the current capital
    of the SEAU, where, as an experiment, the military government has
    already introduced the Sybil System, to find and apprehend Kogami. Her
    boss agrees. The official reason for her visit to Shambala Float will
    be the inspection of the implementation of the Sybil System. Tsunemori
    is about to leave Japan for the first time and visit a place where
    violence is an everyday occurrence. As she begins her investigation, a
    mercenary group is sent to take Kogami out of the picture and if
    Tsunemori comes in their way, that’s an acceptable collateral damage.

    The movie overall is something that could easily have been adapted into
    one half of the next Psycho-Pass season and if that were the case, it’d
    probably have had more time to develop the setting and the problems
    that this new situation of Sybil expanding abroad has created. Still,
    everything that Psycho-Pass fans want is still here, if to a lesser
    degree, and we finally get to see what happened to Kogami after season
    1. The idea for the plot is excellent and it’s the next logical step
    after the events of the first two seasons. However, the plot is also
    more or less rather predictable even for someone who’s never seen the
    show before. The visuals are great as usual (it’s more or less the same
    quality of animation drawn for the show) and the movie features a few
    neat visual moments just like the show frequently does, although again,
    there’s a certain fine lack of ambition here as well, which you notice
    during those neat moments when the visuals kick it up a notch. There’s
    a surprising amount of Japanese-spoken English in the movie (Japanese
    actors talk in heavily accented English), since the two countries in
    the movie use English to communicate with one another when their
    automatic translator isn’t on (yes, there’s an automatic translator
    almost as efficient as the one in Star Trek). There are also tidbits of
    philosophical debate sprinkled here and there in the dialogue.

    Overall, while season one of the show is still the best part of the
    series and season 2 more or less successfully adds new shades of gray
    to the world through new issues, conflicts and characters, this movie
    is a decent ”sidequel” addition to the franchise nonetheless, and if
    you view it as a single extended episode of the show that’s primarily
    focused on a single new world-building issue, instead of some epic
    event for the show, you won’t have too much problems with it (other
    than that gnawing sense of lackluster ambition).

    Masterpiece

    consider this movie an epilogue to the prior 2 season of the TV series.
    It explores the consequences of actions taken by certain character in
    those past two series and is ultimately a nice companion piece.

    I’ve heard it said that this movie does not provide resolution to what
    came before but I disagree. The show is more than just about events, it
    is about the message the show has been trying to get across and it does
    this perfectly. ‘People need democracy, they should not have a system
    of governance IMPOSED upon them’.

    The film gives resolution to Gino character who was sorely underused in
    in season 2. The music, the animation, the writing was all top quality.
    A masterpiece.

    Beautifully animated movie with discussion of ideological theories, but sadly no emotional roller-coaster.
