Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Originally entitled Magnum of Love's Destiny, this 1989 theatrical feature is a favorite with City Hunter fans because it offers a rare glimpse of the affection that underlies the tumultuous relationship between longtime partners Ryo Saeba and Kaori. The over-the-top story centers on pianist Nina Shutenberg, who's at the center of an international intrigue. Assigned to guard her, Ryo finds himself caught in a web of spies, explosions, and family tragedies. As usual, Ryo alternates between groping every female in sight and demonstrating his deadly marksmanship. Whenever his lechery threatens to go too far, Kaori clobbers Ryo with one of her outsized sledge hammers. In short, Magnum delivers exactly what City Hunter fans want and expect. "One Cool Sweeper! XYZ Is a Dangerous Cocktail," an episode from the long-running broadcast series, is included as a bonus. (Rated 15 and older: violence, sexual humor, brief nudity, minor profanity) --Charles Solomon

For a movie made in 1990, its pretty damn good. My favorite part is when Joe's partner blows the wall open and comes in shooting. The music is classic 80's rock which is really great if you have a sweettooth for classic rock. Everytime Joe protects a different women. This time its a piano player. Out of all the women Joe protects, this has to be the worst drawn one ever. But no matter. There is still the great stuff you love about City Hunter in .357 Magnum. Joe's cool car, great action and the infamous Big Mallet which Joe encounters everytime. Ha ha ha. With comedy and action, this is an anime that would make the directors of Miami Vice proud.

City Hunter is one of the 1st anime I ever watched, and something about the silly sex humor and gun battles always caught my eye. I'll be honest, its an older anime so it's not the best animation nor are a lot of the topics current (again, because of the age). But it is BY GOD FUNNY! Especially the subtitled version of .357 Magnum. I think its worth a buy especially if you just want to laugh your head off. City Hunter is made for those who wanna watch an anime to laugh and laugh hard. I know I did. I think it's worth it and then some.

.357 Magnum is a very good movie, but those familiar with the other City Hunter movies will notice that this one's a bit lacking. The plot tends to drag very often, more than the Motion Picture, lacking the constant action and excitement that City Hunter usually provides. There's still some humor which is handled pretty well in the dub, and an awesome final raid scene. City Hunter: .357 is still worthy of a purchase, but it's not the best one.

This is a must have for anime fans if you are into smart gunfights, and easily charm by beautiful women then I highly recommend this title. It has everything including humour, unforgettalbe music, and very funny in parts.

I loved it! Which is probably a very strange thing for a girl to say, considering Ryo's personality. I fell in love with all of the characters almost immediately when I watched the series, and this is more of them. That said, the movies rarely measure up to the series. The series follows the manga, while the movies are made up out of the script-writers' imaginations, rather than the creator's. I always get the feeling that the scriptwriters for the City Hunter movies were trying just slightly too hard, and skew the characters just a little. Rather like what happens to your typical Disney sequel, but not quite as bad as that.
