Kauboi Bibappu: Tengoku No Tobira (2001)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
A tanker truck is blown to smithereens in the middle of a busy street, and a deadly viral infection is released with the explosion. The Bebop crew - Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine, and Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV - are instantly after the culprit when the gargantuan reward of 300,000,000 woolongs is announced. But the case gets stranger and stranger as the cold-blooded Vincent Volaju, who supposedly has been dead for ten years, seems to be the prime suspect. Meanwhile, Spike encounters the dangerous Electra, who too seeks the madman. Conspiracies and secrets better left alone are uncovered, and Vincent's reign or terror is nowhere near over yet...
The last party is about to begin.

More Movie Taglines:
- The last party is about to begin.
- Old Woman: He called you a cowboy. What did he mean? What are you? Spike: Just a humble bounty hunter, ma'am.
Ed: Food, glorious food!
Spike: He was just all alone. He couldn't enjoy a game with anyone else. Like living in a dream... That's the kind of man he was...
Jet: Spike, if that hostage had been shot, what would you have done then? Spike: If it happens, it happens... Jet: Really... As usual, for a 125,000-Woolong criminal, there were too many risks involved. Bounty hunting is harder than just that. Before I teamed up with you, I lead quite a normal life.
Vincent: Why don't you shoot? Spike: What? Vincent: What's wrong? Lose your nerve? You started out so fearlessly. Go on. Pull the trigger. Spike: I don't think so. I blow the bounty if I blow you away. Vincent: I have no fear of death. It just means dreaming in silence. A dream that lasts for eternity. Spike: [sarcastically] You're an original, aren't you?
- This film takes place between episodes 22 and 23 of the series
The full English title of the film is "Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door". However, supposedly due to copyright disputes over the subtitle "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" (after a Bob Dylan song of the same name), Columbia Tristar, who is releasing the film in the United States, shorted the name to just "Cowboy Bebop: The Movie".
The character, Vincent, is based on singer/song writer Bob Dylan who wrote the song that the title of this film is based.
In the shots showing the T-shirt salesman, the T-shirt in the very lower left says "Bones", which is the production studio for Cowboy Bebop, the series and the movie.
In the scene where the vintage airplanes are spreading the vaccine over the city, one of the old coots says (in the English subtitles) "This reminds me of the sinking of the Bismarck!" The airplane he's in is a Fairey Swordfish (a WWII-vintage biplane torpedo bomber), and Swordfishes were instrumental in sinking the Bismarck during the famous WWII naval battle. The red space ship Spike flies in the movie and the series is also called Swordfish II.
