Patlabor 1: The Movie (1990)
The year is 1999 and Tokyo’s Mobile Police have a new weapon in the war on crime – advanced robots called Labors are used to combat the criminals who would use the new technology for illegal means. The suicide of a mysterious man on the massive Babylon Project construction site sets off a cascade of events that may signal the destruction of Tokyo. What is the connection between the suicide, the new Mobile Police AV-XO Zero Labor, and a berserk prototype tank?
When Patlabor cops Noah Izumi and Azuma Shinohara investigate an unexplained wave of rogue Labors’ rampaging across the city, they uncover a sinister revenge plot to infect Tokyo’s eight thousand Labor population with the deadly BABEL virus. With the future of the city hanging in the balance and a typhoon poised to trigger the devastation, Noah, Azuma and their teammates must destroy the source of the virus, the giant Babylon Project tower in Tokyo Bay, in a die-hard battle to the finish
