Noir style animation at it's best
21 August 2012 | by (Deep in Hell) – See all my reviews

A dark future filled with shady characters and strange storyline is all that the Neo-Noir audience are always craving for. In this series, Tom Hanks and the rest of the production team deliver those factors in animation style.

Perhaps a similar experience was already achieved from "Animatrix: A Detective Story" and "Inception: Motion Comics". Although the animation is not that detailed, the viewer can see the work of art in every frame.

The strange relationship between people of this era, apocalyptic nightmares and the very thin line between innocence and genocide are some of the new things that Electric City provides.

With the exception of it's short length(about 4 minutes per episode), Electric City without a doubt is a Noir style animation at it's best.
