I'll try not to repeat what previous reviewers have already stated but I agree strongly with much of their content. This is absolute classic anime and is not surprising given that it's made by the same guy who did Lensman, Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter Bloodlust.
It looks great and there's some great animation even though it perhaps looks slightly dated compared to modern day anime (it was made in 1990!!!). The stories are very sci-fi and you can see a lot of influences from 80s sci-fi cinema in there.
There are some great sci-fi ideas in there as well some very imaginative fight scenes(eat your heart out Jackie Chan).
If someone asked me to cite a definition of a classic Japanese anime, then this would be right up there.
I watched the dubbed English version which, whilst slightly over the top, is probably better than watching the subtitled version by all accounts.
It's a shame that there isn't more anime like this as I feel there is a lot of anime that isn't worth a second look.
If you're vaguely into this sort of thing, then it's definitely worth a look. Have fun!
