A while back, I picked up Psycho-Pass after being intrigued with its premise, only to drop it seven episodes in. Recently however, with nothing better to do, I figured that I'd watch everything else so that I could fully experience everything this series had to offer. I never enjoyed Psycho-Pass that much, in fact I only kept coming back to it because I was so bothered by the fact that I had never finished it. I'm not sure whether it was because the show itself was bad, or because I wasn't enthralled with any of the characters and their dystopian detective work, but out of everything I've seen from this series, I found this movie to be one of the better things in the Pycho-Pass universe. With no case to solve and no Sibyl System to get in the way of things, this final instillation of the Psycho-Pass SS trilogy tells us a story from Shinya Kogame's time as a mercenary outside of Japan after the first Psycho-Pass movie. It was enjoyable because it really gave us a closer look at Kogame's personal struggles after having to live with himself after the events of the first season, and his thoughts on the life he's lived before and the life he wants to live now. After choosing to train a young girl named Tenjin who wants to travel down the same road Kogame went down before, we see this dynamic between the old Kogame and the Kogame he is today, which I found to be really interesting and very enjoyable to see. As the story takes place in a country beyond the reaches of the Sibyl System, society is drastically different than the advanced high-tech Japan that the rest of the series follows. The people here don't have to worry about clouding their hue or being blown up by a Dominator, and it was this change in scenery that made this movie stand out to me. If you enjoyed Psycho-Pass, then you will appreciate this movie for its development of Kogame's character, but even if you're like me and didn't enjoy Psycho-Pass that much, then you may appreciate this movie just because of how different it is from the rest of the series. Instead of seeing a robotic civilization, we see a happy yet impoverished and war-torn-looking village, fighting a battle against real people with nothing more than guns, knives, and their bare hands. I even found the soundtrack to be quite enjoyable as I kept watching the movie, and every event felt so fresh too. The whole mixup was very appreciated, and it was so rewarding to step outside of the Sibyl System's jurisdiction for once with one of the characters who was amazing the first season, absent in the second, and underdeveloped in the third. If you didn't like Psycho-Pass because of the whole dystopian story it told but found Kogame's character to be really interesting, then I would highly suggest you at least give this a try if you still care about Psycho-Pass to some extent. If you do like Psycho-Pass, then I can't imagine what you'd be getting by not watching this, since it's still a pretty enjoyable movie, so watch it!
