Early 21st century. Robot technology

undergoes massive development.

By mid-century,

Japan leads the world

in robot knowledge and application.

From domestic uses to weaponry,

Japan dominates the world market.

As the technology is extended

to the human body

the mood of

the international community

turns against use of humanoids.

Just as with nuclear power

and biotechnology before,

U.N regulations are proposed

to limit robot technology.

Japan fiercely

resists this limitation

but the will of the U.N.

is unshakeable.

Japan takes the extreme step

of withdrawing from the U.N.

And begins a new policy

of national isolation.

Japan uses it high technology

to withdraw from world affairs.

10 years go by.

The resulting information blackout

turns Japan into a total enigma.

For an entire decade,

no foreigner penetrates the veil.

This is disrupting

my entire holiday.

Now that your family has already

left Washington for Denver.

Don't the Japanese

understand it's Christmas?

Dragging us miles out here...

At least the British, French

and Russians are here, too.



Final stand-by. We go in on my mark.

Dumb gig. Dumb time of year.

Just some Christmas party, right...

Do the job quick

and you'll be home

for Mom's Turkey.

Each of the world's nations has

debated the issue of human evolution

and come to

the exact same conclusion.

Thus we can say that this result

represents a true and just future

for humanity.

If we at Daiwa Heavy Industries

have your endorsement,

I'd appreciate a round of applause.

Didn't think so...

The primary target is Saito

of Daiwa Heavy Industries.

We're working on a tip-off.

It might be a trap.

Keep your eyes open.

I said we didn't need 'em.

Why so many robots?

No idea. Ask the chief...

They're the latest Daiwa models.

Latest or not,

I don't trust them.


Darn you, Maria...

Get out of my way!


Dispose of all the bodies.

What the heck's going on?

What's SWORD doing here?

Answer me.

Don't you know who I am?

For God's sake, I demand to know.



"SWORD HQ, Los Angeles"

It's a flagrant violation

of international treaties.

Which ones?

They ignored just about every one.

Which part is metallic?

Well, it's bio-metal.

So this was his only robotic part?

I hope that's the case.

But during the raid

we confirmed his bio-signature.

It might've been added later.

Is that even possible?

Not with our technology.

If Japan is manufacturing

androids of this level...

It would pose a threat

equal to nuclear power.

This mean Saito's an android?

In any case,

there's nothing comparable

in the US, legit or otherwise.

It'll take forever

to reverse-engineer.

This reminds me of San Pedro

last month.


Despite all the people

living in this city.

We only talk to people with

this badge or to our darn computers.

It's not the city's fault.

It's the age we live in.

Anything from Irene?

Not a word.


Hear anything about San Pedro

from Leon?


Was the tip-off for this mission

from San Pedro?


Not that it's a secret any more.

"Port of San Pedro"

Why the need for us to guard this?

That's the latest

Japanese weapon system.

But any enemy would have 'em, too.

The battlefield is Japan's

showroom after all.

It's not right that everyone

treats Japan special.

Some day, they'll get

what they deserve.

Cease pursuit and withdraw.

You've got to be kidding.

I repeat, cease pursuit immediately.

This is our turf.


Be careful.


December... 23rd... Mt. Filar...
