Trivia

The tattoo on Briareos' left upper arm says "Cogito Ergo Sum", which is Latin for "I think, therefore I am." Strangely, Greek characters are used and not Roman. Also the first character is Gamma, but C would rather be transliterated as Kappa in Greek. It also has the dates 2096-2122, which are Briareos' date of birth and date of his "death" when he became a cyborg. See more »

Here's a bit of everything, violence and fighting scenes, hi-tech armory, some love and some conspiracy as well.
14 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

First of all, this piece is brilliantly animated. Combining the visual effects with the sound effects this way makes me think of The Matrix, with fast cuts, some slow-motion sessions and of course a lot of doppler effects. I thought the plot was quite OK, not too original but not too hasty either. It has a good development I thought, and I have to admit that I were a bit worried for a while if it'd be able to sum things up in a good way, which I think it did quite well. Here's a bit of everything, violence and fighting scenes, hi-tech armory, some love and some conspiracy as well. I'll give this a 7/10. I can't say how much in fact the plot has earned these points, but if you like visual effects and fast-paced fighting scenes you're probably going to like this.
