If the first 5 minutes of this movie don't grab you, you're probably dead. It has action, suspense and a whole lot of great animation, and thats all in the first 5 minutes. As the story moves forward you'll be hit with plot twists and clean fight scenes. Set in the future when artificial lifeforms are commonplace mankind must rid itself of petty racist views and violent tendencies. Duenan Knute and her companion Briareos must choose sides in a battle for humanity's future. Using a combination of standard animation and CG this movie goes where few have dared to try, there just aren't enough movies, (anime or otherwise) that deserve to be recognized by the major film awards, its a shame this one didn't go to theaters in the United States, the only way to make it better is to have seen it on the big screen. Appleseed rates in the top 3 for me, right up there with X and Armitage the 3rd. I hope to see more anime like this in the near future.
