Let me say this movie is visually out there, filled with art deco styling and hot jazz that just screams 1920s. There are references to Sumerian mythology, even so much as the city of Metropolis has just opened its most important building yet, The Ziggurat. Sadly, this town could be what might be the birth of The Matrix. Robots serve the citizens of this town, but many people have been put out of work because of them. The robots can do jobs most humans cannot, such as ones dealing with foul chemicals or biohazards. They also serve as civil servants, but there is a faction of robot haters that taken them down in the most violent of ways. These are the Marduks. Metropolis’ most influential man, Duke Red, was the head of the project that built the Ziggurat, and his adopted son, Rock is one of the most hardcore Marduks out there. Also, at the time of the completion of the Ziggurat, a private investigator, Hige-Oyaji, and his nephew, Kenichi, have come from Japan to find a scientist, Dr. Laughton, who has a warrant out for his arrest in several countries for illegal experimentation. Hige-Oyaji come to the city-state’s president, President Boon, and tell him of their assignment. They are sent to the police department and are given a robot investigator, which Hige-Oyaji names Pero, after his dog at home, since robots are not allowed to have human names. Rock spies on the investigators, and follows them to a lower level of the city where he finds his adopted father’s secret project, and the feelings of betrayal consume him.
