  Review: Shinichiro Watanabe's Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Kicks Down Heaven's Door, reviewed by Laura Blackwell
In Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, the four bounty hunters who crew the spaceship Bebop race to capture a man who's officially dead -- a man who would sacrifice the population of an entire planet just to prove to himself that he exists.
This stylish actioner, originally titled Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door, achieves the remarkable feat of being both a self-contained tale a new viewer can appreciate, and an untold side story that dovetails with the popular Cowboy Bebop television series continuity.
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie is both a crowd-pleasing adventure flick and a thought-provoking addition to the series.

 AAW: Cowboy Bebop Review
Cowboy Bebop is one of those series that takes a relatively tired concept and manages to breathe new life into it.
Cowboy Bebop has style all over the place--from the visuals, to the music (I'll be getting to that later), to the settings, to the stories, this series was as slick as you could ask for in even the most serious of sci-fi.
Cowboy Bebop isn't deep, but it has style and little bits of creativity everywhere to make up for what it lacks in substance, and from start to finish it's a marvelously well-built production.

 Cowboy Bebop Box Set DVD - Review - Anime News Network
Her instrumental pieces for Bebop outrank many a Hollywood film's, and the many songs (almost all in English) that are peppered throughout the series could certainly be top-40 hits on American radio, particularly "Call Me Call Me" and "Want it all Back".

 COWBOY BEBOP: THE MOVIE - SPECIAL EDITION DVD
It functions as something of a brilliantly mellifluous backbone to the film and the series that spawned it--chimeric and socially significant, again like Bird's bebop, in that the 26-episode Japanese television series became one of the most recognized and revered crossovers in animated series history.
Ultimately, Cowboy Bebop spends too much of its time in action-movie convention--chase scenes that last way too long to no good effect, as well as a rape drama that is at once invasive and, for as central as it is to the film's conclusion, leaves too much to the imagination.
The strength of the film is that idea that while technology steadily outpaces humanity's ability to reorient itself within a constantly shifting paradigm, humanity regresses into the modes of the past and the instincts of the flesh.
