Too cute and too rambling.

Somewhat resembles Paprika, another recent piece of Japanimation. But director Michael Arias, a Tokyo-based American, doesn't fuse his striking graphics to a story anywhere near as satisfying.

The movie is a collection of disparate anime parts that never really comes together.

Anime enthusiasts will want to take a look, but the film is too uneven to serve as a good introduction to the form.

Wins you over with its sense of style and attention to detail ... a fine display of what can be done in hand-drawn and painted animation.

In the anime Tekkonkinkreet, two orphans of life's storms sail through the air like birds, like superheroes, like Jackie Chan.

Tekkon Kinkreet: Black and White is an enthralling anime and easily the best-animated film you will see this year.

Borrowing in equal measures from innocuous child fantasies and Street Fighter, the colorfully imaginative world of Tekkonkinkreet has its fair share of marvels.

Since the movie more or less abandons all pretense of naturalism somewhere around its midpoint, in the end the expressionistic frenzy of light, movement, and color that takes over is enough to make it worth seeing.

Far less cartoonish than, say Pirates of the Caribbean 3. And its characters are the most poignant, and convincingly human, of the summer.

If it doesn't quite achieve seamless plotting and colorful dialogue, it makes up for it by merging highly stylized animation with live action aesthetics in remarkably immersive ways.

Tekkonkinkreet, for all its architecturally grimy virtuosity and flourishes of anime cool, remains the story of a damaged city that can still point to one mighty example of brotherly love.

By the end of this phantasmagorical journey, I was as wrapped up in the precarious fate of these two wounded kids and the honorable yakuza warlords of Treasure Town as I've been in any film all year.

The dazzlingly intricate backgrounds are a marvel, and though the jam-packed story occasionally trips over its own sentimentality, it quickly rights itself every time.

For grown-ups who can let the story wash over them without asking too many questions, it's a treat.
