This dark anime series takes place in the distant future, a time when overpopulation has led to interplanetary colonization. On the planet of Japones, the entire world is comprised of men. The only women who live there are androids called marionettes. These super-strong creations are devoid of emotion but saturated with strength, so when the evil Starface is freed from prison and sets his sights on taking the thrown from Junior, the pure-hearted heir, there's no one better suited to protect him than three die-hard marionettes, Cherry, Lime, and Bloodberry. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

While this movie may not have been the best as far as story, character and designs go, it was actually the precursor to the wildly entertaining "Saber Marionette J", which actually had some great animation and characters. The main marionettes actually have the same names. So basically, I would actually suggest watching the entire "Saber Marionette J" series first and then watch this movie as an afterthought. It would make it more fun to watch.
sexy robots chic fighting and destroying the city. how could you not love it? there is a minimal amount of gore, no sex. the animation is typical for this type of movie. this wasn't a movie, though, but a tv series. kind of ruined it for me. otherwise, still good. good japanimation.
Saber Marionette J is amazing. Saber Marionette R is not. Could not watch this movie all the way through. The characters and plot are a HUGE downgrade from Saber Marionette J. Rent J and mourn this movie.
