Well, "Appleseed Ex Machina" more than makes up for that. In fact, this CGI action flick boasts upgrades in every area -- a tighter plot, more complex conspiracies, and more lifelike animation. It's a stunning experience with loads of fiery, spinning action scenes, albeit with a slightly improbable villain.
Olympus has a new threat -- brainwashed cyborgs that are kidnapping officials, and disrupting planetary peace. During a rescue mission, Briareos is injured and hospitalized for awhile -- and Deunan introduced to her new partner Tereus -- a warrior bioroid cloned from Briareos' DNA. She's furious, Briareos is depressed, and all three are confused by Tereus' similarities to Briareos.
But when President Athena calls an international conference, E-SWAT only narrowly stops an attack force -- of cyborgs and ordinary humans who have somehow been possessed by a mechanical goo. Their message: "I am Halcon... all will be one." And worst of all, Briareos is somehow being affected by the baddies, so he decides to do some investigating on his own. Now Deunan, Briareos and Tereus must join forces despite their tension, and stop a malevolent conspiracy that threatens the entire world....
While the first "Appleseed" movie had a rather simple plot, "Appleseed Ex Machina" tends toward complexity. Everything is bigger -- the conspiracies, the mad scientist stuff, the potential warfare, and even the love story. And despite its fuller plot, the sequel actually manages to cram in some quiet moments between robot battles and personal scuffles.Read more ›
The original Appleseed which was released in 2004 concerned a future post apocalyptic world in which humans, cyborgs and bioroids strived to live together in harmony only to be threatened by a rebellion that could destroy them all. This sequel released in 2008 basically repeats that plot but with a different but similarly dire threat. That's probably it's one weakness. On the other hand; all of the good points of the original are even better here. More jaw dropping battle scenes, awe inspiring visual backgrounds and superb detailing. It's got it in spades. If this were a live action Hollywood movie; it would be one of those big budget multi-hundred million dollar blockbusters. It's gorgeous!
The plot is where it's a bit weaker not being quite as good or believable as the original Appleseed was and with a plot whose motives never really fully make sense. It also tends to fall back a bit on the typical death wish villain and at the very end; even throws in a few tentacles as well. I wish the japanese would can it a bit with these constant stereotypes in virtually every second anime they make! But otherwise, it's a pretty damn good movie.
The extra's are superb as well.Read more ›
I've seen this title in bins for $3.99 and though it's entertaining it isn't worth paying full price for so look for on sale.
I instantly fell in love with, ..., well everything, when I first saw it.
The CGI, the caracters, and the story.
So, I just had to have it.
Saw it at Amazon and the price was nice.
