Certains films sont davantage une démonstration d'animation qu'une histoire bien construite.
Far from fleshing out the universe of THE MATRIX, this cynical, self-indulgent marketing tie-in renders it less coherent. Boasts only a few memorable visual moments, and suffers from a paucity of narrative.
Some of its segments are brilliant and breathtaking examples of animation. Unfortunately, as with the average music CD, for every great track there's usually a "filler" song.
This particular 'rabbit hole' has far more verve and artistic curiousity than its bloated blockbuster counterpart [i]The Matrix Reloaded[/i]
"Beyond" is the highlight of The Animatrix and "A Detective Story" is its nadir.
Breathtaking on a big screen, the impact should be little diminished on video.
An interesting look into the minds of the warriors against the machines, and what can tempt them.
