While this film was nominally based on Edward E ("Doc") Smith's "Lensman" books, significant elements of the plot have actually been lifted from DC Comics "Green Lantern", which is fitting, as "Green Lantern" pretty much bases major parts of its background and setup on the "Lensman" stories.

Classic anime, a kind of poor man's Star Wars, made by the Japanese
I know that for a 1984 film this is not so bad, but I have to say, after having seen so many animes in my life, I can't really appreciate it in any way. First of all the story is based on E. E. Smith's Lensman novels, which are written in the 1930s, and it shows. Second of all, the animation is not that good, with base colors, psychedelic lightning and silly 3D geometric shapes. The characters are not developed or likable and the plot is something akin to Star Wars, only without the complexity: evil empire, rebels, boy with super powers that can save the world, helpless girl, intellectual mentors that always suggest safe or rational actions and give the protagonist every chance to do exactly the opposite.
Bottom line: I did not like it. It was boring and a pain to watch till the end.
