The stock characters and leaden stretches of expository dialogue are welcome evidence that there's still no computer program capable of telling a decent story.

It's busy, stiff, artificial graphics are a perfect match for its busy, stiff, artificial plot.

Newbie viewers will be left twiddling their thumbs while waiting for Deunen's next bout of butt-kicking action sequences.

Yes, it looks good, but it doesn't come close to exploring the grand themes it has in mind, or to ascending anywhere near the landmarks of anime.

A cross-pollination of eye-popping combat and provocative ideas.

The action scenes might grab you, but there's a lot of talky downtime.

Though Appleseed has its selling points, it's not an especially strong entry in the genre, despite the presence of so many pneumatic heroines.

This long-overdue big-screen adaptation makes it hard to tell what was so revolutionary about the series.

Dazzling visually but is flattened by corny dialogue better suited to the 1936 Flash Gordon serial, a needlessly hard to follow plot and heavy-handed exposition clotted with pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo.

Has a plot that frolics in the no-man's land between fiendish complexity and utter incomprehensibility.

Despite swaths of verbal exposition and a tendency to overdose on robot action sequences, the film has enough originality to interest demanding fans of the genre.

The bizarre gulf between the realism of the backgrounds and the stylization of the characters undermines a story line about a conspiracy to rid Utopia of 'bio-roids.'

The spectacle of the Appleseed anime characters performing Matrix gymnastics proves to be less than awe-inspiring.

In the clash of 2-D and 3-D images, Appleseed emerges as the cracked-voiced, pasty-faced example of computer animation's clumsy adolescence.

The supposedly human face of our metal-plated robocop's partner -- the inevitable curvy female in a leather jump suit -- is an inexpressive, glossy doll mask, untouched by human hands.

Even in a cartoon this technically astounding, most of the characters appear to have sprung from the DNA of Astro Boy.

For all the movie's impressive figure and facial modeling, as well as the superfluid humanoid motion, any depth is purely an illusion.
