Appleseed (2004)


Yeah, but the last letter of the password? This cool, great-looking Japanese animation features an ambitious scenario and generally superlative animation (occasional facial animation is a little less than outstanding). The English dub is good. Where it does fall down is that the story doesn’t make much sense in how it gets from one scene to another and that the first outstanding action scene (produced and directed as a test before committing to the remaining 95 minutes) is the best of the movie.

This movie contains mild swear words, mild adult dialogue and some extreme violence, strong martial arts violence, gory and unpleasant scenes and mild nudity.

Classified 12A by BBFC. Persons under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
