Plot and story don't really mean much in a movie that's really all about crazy characters racing crazy cars on a crazy planet, and while this will probably upset some people, that doesn't make it all any less enjoyable for me. It was a fun movie and that's all that matters to me.
As for the plot, there basically isn't one. It's simply an excuse to do the sort of old school anime that you don't see that often anymore. The movie can be basically broken down into three parts. The first part starts out with a slam bang race that introduces you to the main character JP who just wants to race all out and his basic love interest and rival Sonoshee. Done old school style, that means huge manes of hair, the wildest vehicles you've ever seen and bulging eyeballs. It's that sort of show.
It then drops into the second part which then introduces you to all the other main characters who will appear in the Redline Race and the military government that's determined to stop them no matter what the cost. What little humour there is appears in this middle part. And then there's the last 40 min. part which is the Redline itself which is part Deathrace, part Mad Max and part Speed Racer and which contains every anime cliché in the books amped up to the absolute max! It's quite a ride!
The audio on the Bluray is Dolby True HD 5.1 in both English and Japanese with a top notch dub done by Bang Zoom. And the video is state of the art 1080P in a 1:78.1 widescreen presentation.
There are only three extras, all Japanese. The original 2006 trailer which must have been made as a teaser since nothing in it appears in the actual movie but deserves to be seen just for it's own sake.Read more ›
The plot seems exciting - everyone wants to win the Redline race, a no-holds barred futuristic racing event which is taking place on a dangerous planet. Should be cool, right? But some of the characters are downright strange and though some seemed interesting, some were underdeveloped... these are some strange character designs... gorilla cop, weird steampunk cyborg, magical fairy queen with omnipotent powers, twin pop stars, and weird looking aliens. I think the character designs were a bit too over the top for me.
The action, when it was on screen, was pretty good. Other than the Deathrace 2000 / Twisted Metal cars shooting one another, there wasn't a whole lot of action/violence - just a couple of fight scenes and a short shoot 'em up near the end. However, the opening race sequence set to some really cool techno music was almost worth the price of admission and had me grinning from ear to ear. Likewise, much of the ending race sequence was pretty cool.Read more ›

Without spoiling the movie, it was thoroughly enjoyable with some flaws here and there. I appreciate the amount of work it took to create the drawings and animation. Amazing movie. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
One of the best looking anime i ever seen, but a very simple story and weird moment. The first race is the best part of the movie.Published 9 months ago by Guillaume Lanouette
Yes it's available on youtube for free, but big screen on the couch with bluray quality is just so much nicer! Read morePublished 13 months ago by Cory A. Case
