If you freeze frame on the DVD you can briefly see the Name Plate on an Osiris bulkhead that says : Mark IV 16 : OSIRIS : Made in the USA 2097. Looking up the text in the bible it reads: "But when Herod heard this, he said, 'John, the man I beheaded, has been raised from the Dead!'" See more »
A rather splendid little stand-alone CG-animated film set in the universe of "The Matrix" series of movies. The engine used to generate the characters and animation is clearly the same as that used in "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within".
People who have criticised this movie's animation need their eyes examining.
I found the movement of the characters utterly realistic, and their facial expressions were masterfully done.
The best part, it has to be said, is the opening fight sequence between Thadeus and Jue. The only niggle I'd have is that sword fighting blindfolded is a concept more suited for showing off live action effects; clearly there's nothing clever about getting "blindfolded" CG characters to be able to fight as if they can see! But the fight, with its clever little device of gradually showing more flesh, is a splendid piece of animation work, with some nice touches of humour.
Once that is over, the film moves over to more generic action sequence which really doesn't show us anything we haven't already seen in "The Matrix". As the title implies, it does have a somewhat downbeat ending, so be warned!
