About PSYCHO-PASS The Movie Blu-ray/DVD
Psycho-Pass The Movie is set in a futuristic Japan. The Sibyl System is charged with keeping the peace. Using extensive surveillance and biological monitoring to gauge the likelihood that individuals will commit a crime, the police are able to use weapons called Dominators to remove potential criminals from the population before they become a problem. Confident with the success of the System within their own borders, the Japanese government has begun to export the technology to other countries, planning to ultimately spread the System across the globe.
When the state of SEAUn brings the Sibyl System in to test its effectiveness, it becomes a haven of peace and safety—for a time. Eventually, terrorists from SEAUn begin appearing in Japan, somehow slipping through the System’s security and attacking from within. Desperate for answers, Inspector Akane Tsunemori is sent overseas to bring the terrorists to justice. But when her investigation forces her into a standoff with an old ally, will she be able to pull the trigger? Find out in the feature film of critically acclaimed series PSYCHO-PASS.

Ratings & Reviews
A respectable sequel
by dustydreams -
I didn't enjoy it as much as Season 1, but for only 2 hours long, it was pretty good. Dark, thought-provoking, with plenty of action thrown in. It mostly follows Akane's investigation, but Kogami has some good character moments too. The enforcers don't get a lot of screen time, though. =[ Quite a bit more gruesome detail in the exploding body parts than merely gushing blood, fyi.
UV redemption only w/ VUDU, but you get both ENG and JPN audio versions! No expiration date specified.
I was hoping for a release comparable to the premium editions. As someone who has them both, I found this release somewhat disappointing. =[ Would've liked something (anything!) about the Japanese production. On a happier note, it came with 4 artcards (appx 4.5" x 5.75"): 3 illustrations used for home video releases (both US and JPN) plus one of Ginoza pointing a gun at a kneeling Kogami (not a frame capture).
PS/ Don't skip the epilogue after the credits!

I'm a big fan of the series (as you can tell from reading my previous reviews) and this movie is no exception. It's just as visually, audibly and thematically exciting as the two seasons that precede it. It’s dark, dystopian and morally thought provoking. If you enjoyed the first two seasons then I’m certain you’ll also enjoy this. The only ‘flaw’ I found is that it is a movie and while it’s a nice long two hour one it felt all too short once it was over compared to the episode series (but that’s probably because I have a hard time ‘stopping’ when watching the episodes and always end up binge watching it when I have the time ;^_^). All in all I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Solid Addition to the Series but Left Wanting More
by FrellMeDead -
Overall this movie is a solid addition the the series which has been fairly good across the board. Both the sub and dub versions are good. The animation and story are fairly solid as well and brings you back into this universe of the Sibyl system and all the pros and cons that lie within it.
The main characters from the first two seasons return and really fill out what exactly happens to the latent criminal Kogame after he left the inspectors and escaped from Japan. Akane Tsunemori is the main character in the movie and shows her continued struggle between the decisions of the Sybil system and her values/morals that can conflict and even confuse the system.
Definitely recommend this as a purchase. I do wish that a premium version had been offered similar to the first two seasons. This version does come with 4 art cards that are nice. Hopefully a continuation of this series occurs.
A great addition to the series
by Another Anime Fan -
very good film if you are a fan of first and second season you should definitely buy this.
Completes the series well

Great addition to the series. Provided a satisfying conclusion to Kogami's story. A lot of times anime movies will stray away from the original storyline, not incorporating much of the series but Psycho-pass the Movie feels more like a continuation of season 1. While the new cast of enforcers do not get as much screen time, to me, the interactions between Akane and Kogami make up for it.
