At the end of the Ice Age, The Machine came from outer space with the purpose to change men into mutants. However, a hero defeated the device and a great seal was laid over The Machine. In 2707, the depleted world is ruled by four Corporations: Mishima, Bauhaus, Capitol and Imperial that are in a constant state of war. During a battle between Capitol and Bauhaus, the great seal is broken and The Machine works again transforming soldiers and civilians into hordes of mutants. A small part of the population escapes to Mars, leaving millions of people behind. The man of faith and leader of an ancient brotherhood, Brother Samuel, is a believer in God and the Chronicles, a bible about the mutants from ancient times.

I think this was really something special. It was not what the average person would call good, but it also wasn't bad at all.
I'm somebody that really watches A LOT of movies. About 4-8 in a week. So I am really happy to see a movie that is not like the others. And this one is one of them.
It's like a Comic adaption, it reminded me a little of Sin City and 300. Sci-Fi and Fantasy at the same time. It begins with a war and ends with a 80's team mission horror action-adventure.
I think it's animation is also unique, you recognize that a lot is computer-animated but you don't really care cause it's done really good for a B-Movie. The blood effects give this a feeling of a film-noir like Sin City and it's epic tale reminded me in someway of 300 and Steamboy...
But I still can't tell if it's good or bad, but I can say this movie is completely unique, it had it's own atmosphere and it really entertained me, although it wasn't made in the best way...
