I think I have watched that dubbed CCA also. All the monotone really makes
the film extremely boring. I don't know if the translation is good enough,
but I have had hard time understanding it. I mean, a person can say things
in conventional way, and then all of a sudden changes to extremely be
serious (like reading, instead of saying). Even worse, you might notice
there are only a few voices throughout the movie. Sometimes, you might hear
the same voice is arguing against itself... (because that voice is
representing two people arguing against each other)

Another thing, I believe the film is intended to be showed in spherical
screen (someone please correct me). That's why I feel the MSs in the movie
look kind of strange.

Talk about good dub, I can't leave without mentioning the TVB dubbed
Patlabor. It is GOOD! It really drives me into the series.
