Sin: The Movie is a 2000 OVA from defunct companies ADV and Phoenix Entertainment. (The Japanese studio, not the also defunct Canadian studio.) The film lasts 57 minutes and is loosely based on a 1998 first person shooter of the same title released on PC, Linux and MAC computers. The game was re-released in 2006 on Steam. The film is currently available on Crunchyroll for FREE users.
This film is so awful, even it's own animators didn't want to claim it on their IMDB page.
I will give this film credit, it's a little more racially diverse than most anime films. But that's really it's only good point.
If you actually remember the FPS from 1998 or from randomly finding it on Steam, prepare to be angry, as this film just barely tried to keep up with the simplistic story of it's source material.
If you're just browsing the anime section, the link saying "read more" is your only warning that I am going to spoil this film. Click/scroll at your own risk, but to be fair, you are about to thank me. I'm giving you back 57 minutes of your life.
Sometime later, Blade is joined by JC's very tall younger sister, who is every cliche of the "I have trust issues" female that quickly loses my attention. She's blonde, she has blue eyes, she's got a huge rack and she's a cop. Really. That is the beginning and end of her entire story. She only works with Blade out of a desire to solve her brother's case and doesn't seem to have any idea of compassion until halfway through her on screen time. They work alongside Kait, a beautiful Black cop who hesitates more than the other two, and grieved a little more realistically when JC died.
As members of the Hardcops Agency, (missed adult film opportunity here, folks) the trio are trying to get to the bottom of a series of drug induced mutations, caused by Elexis Sinclaire, a one dimensional vixen who performs experiments on unsuspecting people in the city of Freeport. She drinks heavily, gets involved in sexual-tuned-deadly games and enjoys wearing skimpy clothing and generally being rude to everyone, except for her scantly clad female servants. Her excuse? Well the mafia who killed Blade's father also killed her mother and prompted her father to kill himself, so in retaliation, she burned her own house to the ground and started doing these experiments to create something that would grant her world domina... you know, I had to re-read my notes a few times and I STILL can't find HOW this is a plausible backstory.
Adding to what is already a hard to follow plot is a little girl named Elyse. JC died trying to save this kid after her parents were murdered in front of her eyes, which gives her a case of shock, before finding a new friend in Blade. And let me tell you, there is NO consistency with this kid AT ALL. When we first see her, she looks ten with blue hair. Then shes a six year old with yellow/green hair. (No, I'm not counting the flashback with her father.) Then she's ten again. And then she's thirteen with a set of B cups. What the unholy hell?? Elyse ends up being kidnapped by Elexis, who finds that her DNA would help her make super-duper mutants. The image of Elexis crucifying Elyse alive after stripping her to a costume made of ribbons is going to haunt me all Easter weekend by the way.
We get a forced happy ending with the demise of Elexis and the rescue (again) of Elyse, but it's not even satisfying. Before we can get there, we have random, unnecessary and unrealistic gore, late 80's/early 90's style "I'm so edgy and adult" animation that is all over the place, and cringe worthy, dark, cartoonish CGI. The computer generated graphics feel forced, like they were a last minute toss in to cover for missing animation. The planes are sent so quickly across the screen they almost feel like paper dolls being wiped across your set. Some of the shapes are so poorly designed, it's hard to distinguish a building from a helicopter.
Sin: The Movie is a 2000's last ditch effort to keep alive shock value anime. The plot is difficult to digest, the script is flat, and worse? It acts as a tie-in to a video game that at the time of the film's release, was already considered to be passe, not even strong enough to garner a fanbase large enough to warrant this drivel. There is no justifiable reason to spend 57 minutes watching this flick, so be sure to avoid at all costs.
