The filmmakers are too busy trying to justify their futuristic world, and not enough actually exploring it.

With so much going on in every frame, Appleseed is one of those anime projects that shouts you to sleep.

January 11, 2005
For all the movie's impressive figure and facial modeling, as well as the superfluid humanoid motion, any depth is purely an illusion.
January 13, 2005
The spectacle of the Appleseed anime characters performing Matrix gymnastics proves to be less than awe-inspiring.

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.'

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

[A] warrior babe cradles [an] injured cyborg bunny in her arms and weeps for him. Take that, Hotel Rwanda!

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.
January 14, 2005
This long-overdue big-screen adaptation makes it hard to tell what was so revolutionary about the series.

January 8, 2005
So much to work with and all of it tossed in favor of banal platitudes and a star-crossed romance with all the tension of an oil-change and all the gravitas of an Archie comic

The film let's us know early on that its cyberdrama will be served cold.

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

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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 13, 2005
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.
