    With the exception of Princess Mononoke, I truly despise anime, and Applessed enlarges my grudge against the ridiculous form of art even more.

    The story has great premise, but it doesn't take advantages of the prime elements in the best way. Still, it does get you to think about such a system, if only a little bit. If that doesn't please you, there's plenty of graphics to feast on, and the action is among the best i've seen in an animated feature. Not perfect, but definitely worth a watch or two.

    Good thing about manga is that you can just switch your brain off and let the movie take you into its own little strange world. the visuals in this film help u on that little journey to manga land, and its great. reminds me of watching FF spirits within.

    This is one of the best movies ever created. I wish that there were more movies like this.

    It is a REMAKE. That is why the story seems antiquated. The story holds up perfectly to the orginal and the visuals set a new milestone. This is a wonderful anime and it will serve as a transition point in future retrospection. Don't listen to the haters. It's worth at LEAST a rental!

    Worthwhile for the visual design and unique animation style. Some highly-effective sequences. The film is undermined by it's stylized melodrama, and storyline simplification. Fans of the Manga will adore it. Others will likely come away with mixed feelings, despising the "human" elements, but enjoying the visceral battle and action scenes.

  1. Whatever is lost in translation can't keep Appleseed from feeling a decade late--and its animation from looking like a relic on arrival.

    Craft connoisseurs won't be disappointed with the splendidly executed result. However, everyone else is likely to wonder what the fuss about given the plot's dated cyborgs-and-supercomputers hijinks.

    Its busy, stiff, artificial graphics are a perfect match for its busy, stiff, artificial plot. A simple Shirow pinup parade might almost be preferable.
