Product Description

The first new Trigun animation in over ten years featuring all the classic Trigun characters you know and love, plus new villains and heroes!

In town surrounded by quicksand, an outlaw from Vash the Stampede’s past has resurfaced after twenty years. His name is Gasback – and he’s looking to cause a little trouble. It seems Gasback has a serious beef with the town’s mayor, who’s paying dozens of bounty hunters to protect his turf. One of those hired guns is a beautiful woman with a vendetta against Gasback. Will she get a shot at revenge? Maybe, if she can get through Gasback’s bodyguard, Wolfwood. And what’s Vash got to do with this mess? Nothing much – except for the fact that he personally set off the entire chain of events two decades ago!

Amazon.com

More than a decade after the Trigun broadcast series debuted (1998), Vash the Stampede is back in a new adventure, Badlands Rumble (2010). As the film opens, Vash keeps bank robber Gasback and his henchmen from killing each other. Twenty years later, Gasback attacks Macca City, the town the henchmen built. A five billion double dollar policy from the Bernardelli Insurance Society protects the gargantuan bronze statue looming over the town, so Meryl and Milly are on hand to protect the company's investment. Gasback's plan has brought scores of bounty hunters to Bacca in pursuit of the staggering reward on his head, including Amelia, a mysterious redhead who has the misfortune to catch Vash's eye. As bullets fly, Vash keeps people from being killed and faces down his old friend, gun-totin' preacher Nicholas Wolfwood. When the smoke finally clears and the credits roll, Vash learns that every throw of the dice can have greater consequences then he realizes. Johnny Yong Bosch re-creates the role of Vash, mixing over-the-top romantic nonsense and serious reflections. The rest of the cast is new, with Brad Hawkins as a slightly cooler Wolfwood and Trina Nishimura as a properly befuddled Milly. In the extras, Trigun creator Yasuhiro Nightow says that Badlands Rumble was made in response to the requests of North American fans. Given the popularity of Trigun--and the movie's inconclusive ending--there may be more adventures in store for the irrepressible Humanoid Typhoon. (Rated TV 14: violence, violence against women, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

I was fortunate to see a screening of this movie at Mechacon 2011 in New Orleans, and it was a real treat. I wasn't sure what to expect, considering I have a good view on what the series was and was supposed to be, and how many ways there were to mess something up. But everything is pretty much perfect! It plays out like a longer episode of the series with higher production values. The new characters are nice additions, and here are several shoutouts to the old series (hard to believe it's thirteen years old now). The comedy is the standard and always enjoyable Vash the Stampede's zany actions, including over-the-top infatuation with the new character Amelia. The action scenes and gunplay have been polished and refined, with things like characters actually reloading, etc. I really can't think of a single thing to say negatively about it. You could make the argument that I'm biased, and that's fair, considering I've been a fan for several years and viewed the movie within a room filled with nothing but other fans, with every gag onscreen bringing up a completely warranted roar of laughter. There should be more reviews soon that will give a more fair view of the technical quality. But if you want a fan's opinion: it is exciting and hilarious.

Movie - 4.5

Long-time anime fans should be no stranger to the world of Trigun. For all the goofy, donut-eating, light-hearted, love and peace(~!) moments and all the unknowing and spontaneous chaos and destruction brought about by just his mere presence alone, The Humanoid Typhoon, Vash the Stampede, is renowned for his naive, yet charming personality and is easily one of the more memorable characters in anime lore. But good grief, can you believe it's been 12 years since the TV series ended? Needless to say, the Sixty Billion Double Dollar Man is back for another go-around. If you're new to the anime medium and have no idea what I'm talking about, Trigun is an anime Spaghetti Western (with a little bit of sci-fi) that follows the adventures of Vash the Stampede, a socially-labeled outlaw of outlaws that is said to be the worst thing you could come across at any point of your life. They say he's big, they say he's bad, and if you're lucky they say you'll die a quick death! But in truth, it's just a bunch of rumors.

As I mentioned earlier about his happy-go-lucky qualities, Vash the Stampede is just trying to live his life and make the world a better place along his travels. Unfortunately, trouble does follow him pretty much everywhere he goes. Character analysis aside, this film is a one-shot story taking place in the Trigun universe in which a bank robber named Gasback is foiled by his own henchmen, only to be saved by Vash, but then pursues a plot of revenge against his former cronies. In the meantime, the last remaining target of Gasback's vengeance has put a rather large bounty on anyone who can stop him. I can't say much else that could entice newcomers, but if you've seen the series and know its material you will absolutely love the atmosphere.

After taking down his brother, Vash is keeping a low profile in a small village. Until Gasback robs a bank in his town. He soon crosses paths with insurance investigators, Meryl and Milly. His friend Wolfwood is serving as Gasback's body guard. A perfect set up for The Humanoid Typhoon to stage a comeback. Extras are from the original Japanese cast and crew with subtitles.
This is a single disc, packaged in a typical Blu-ray poly-box.

Amazon recommended this to me a few months before its release... and with a pre-order of only $15 of course I paid for it!

Pros:
This is a perfect addition to the Trigun series. The animation is crisp and the sound quality is on par with any live action film. its dubbed in english and japanese with optional english subs. I watched it on a 42" plasma, and the color is good.

Cons: (SPOILER ALERT)
************************************
My biggest problem with this movie is Nicolas D. Wolfwood. If you watched the original series from start to finish, we remember seeing Wolfwood bleeding to death in a church.. or so we thought.. in Badlands rumble when wolfwood appears, working as Gasback's body guard, Vash makes a comment about how he he was sure Wolfwood was already dead. this leaves a bit of a story gap, as this confirms that Badlands rumble takes place some time after the original series.

Verdict: BUY IT IF YOU LOVED THE SERIES!

Well worth the money spent. Even with it being years after the original series; it is as if nothing ever changed. The graphics are improved, but the characters you know and love are still the exact same in personality, temperament, etc. And of course there are some new characters introduced that contributed greatly. This was a golden find and I am glad I bought it.

My dad pretty succinctly pointed out the only problem with this movie: "It's about 15 hours too short."

Trigun: Badlands Rumble is a great movie, especially if you love the earlier parts of the original Trigun series. What I love the most about this movie, though, is that it really feels like it could fit in with the continuity of the original story line. The dynamics between the characters are developed only to the point they would be if you were watching this within the timeline of the anime.

The animation is great. There is a lot of computer animation, but it is integrated very well with the 2-D animation (for example, the computer animation is shot at the same rate as the 2-D animation, making it appear seamlessly integrated, instead of ultra-smooth compared to the comparatively choppy 2-D animation). The action scenes are really well choreographed and animated as well.

The character designs are more reminiscent of the manga (particularly visible in Milly's character design and Vash's coat design), and the world is bigger, as if borrowing from the manga (especially where robots and cyborgs are concerned). The world is fuller and you really feel like you're in the middle of a bustling city.

The new voice actors for Meryl, Milly, and Wolfwood are pretty good. The first time I watched it in English, I felt like something was off, but the second time I watched it, I found myself not really noticing, and in fact enjoying, the new voices.

Bottom line: if you like Trigun in its wacky hi-jinks phase, you'll love this movie. Check it out!
