A picture that simply tries too hard
15 January 2010 | by tomson-7See all my reviews

A visually spectacular edition to the CGI anime genre - buried inside a thoughtful and intensely relevant perspective of humanities future, putting an interesting spin on the common 'Neo-Tokyo' theme. The makers of Vexille have created a sci-fi backdrop to rival the likes of Akira and Ghost in the Shell. Sadly however the characterization and narrative structure both more than fall short, not to mention some minor plagiarism, in turn cause a visually inspirational piece of CGI cinema to fall into the rubbish bin of cinematic mediocrity.

For fans of the genre, it's a great piece. A bit slow perhaps in the middle and I felt it was the films construction that let it down. For example, the first CGI Appleseed kept the structure simple and simple works. The first half of the picture introduced a sci-fi world, Olympus and its characters. The second half focused on a narrative plot. Whereas Vexille tries to be too clever, they push for a psychological standard to compare with 'Ghost in the Shell' but sadly there just isn't the depth and creativity of Masamune.

Not a picture to dismiss and if your new to the genre your in for a treat but hardcore fans will not leave feeling overly impressed.
