Storyline

On the surface of the destroyed earth a young woman, Alexa, is seemingly being hunted down by two sentinels. Alexa flees to a tunnel, but the sentinels still follow. This is all according to plan however. Alexa is part of a resistance group that has set a trap. After a robotic device kills of one sentinel, Alexa is able to stun the other. The group wants to use the living sentinel for an experiment. By linking the sentinel to them all in virtual reality, they hope to convince the man-made creature to join the human's cause. But there isn't much time. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

The ninth and final Animatrix short, as well as the longest, running at about 16 minutes. This is the most surreal of them all, with downright psychedelic images. The animation is amazing, well-done 2D Animé with well-integrated and utterly stunning 3D CGI elements. One can tell that this was done by Peter Chung(directed as well as written), the man who brought the world Aeon Flux(the television series, *not* the movie). With a brief philosophical debate making up nearly all of the dialog in this, this also has food for thought, including some in the basic idea of it, in which there is great irony. The sound and visuals are impeccably well-done. I could imagine many not enjoying this on account of how weird it is(not to say that anyone who doesn't care for this has that particular reason for it), it definitely is not for everyone. There is a making of on this, as with all the others(albeit in a couple of cases, two share one), on the DVD, and it is an interesting watch at almost seven minutes. There are various disturbing things here, and it will be up to the individual viewer to decide what is and what isn't, really. I recommend this to fans of the Matrix universe, trippy, off-beat and imaginative efforts and/or science fiction. 7/10
