Critic Reviews for Vexille
A flood of visual inventiveness keeps us watching this futuristic animated action thriller ... even if it feels a bit derivative and thin.
its undeniable sense of spectacle is best appreciated on a very big screen - even if, after a full-throttle build-up, the film's final sequences seem oddly anticlimactic.
Anime fans should check it out, but for anyone looking for a cool, futuristic actioner, you'll have to keep looking.
Audience Reviews for Vexille
Excellent animation and an interesting story combine in this action sci-fi success. The voice work is sometimes clunky, and the characters are all dull as dishwater. In fact, I can't really tell you about the characters, they are all fairly similar. Despite this flaw, the action scenes are fantastic. Chases, robot fights, fast and well edited cuts, this is how action scenes should be seen. As a combination of both robot/zombie film, it would have been better for some not so obvious mad scientists. Enjoy the action, and try and make it through the dialogue.
If you want action scifi, this is what you need to watch. This movie marks the point at which "stunning modern visuals", meaning the CG style, is no longer enough to keep me satisfied. The way I see it, this style of animation is the new standard so it can't be visuals only like FF:The Spirits Within. Many of this story's elements are very similar to Appleseed. They fit the same sub-genre of scifi and have essentially the same protagonist. So though the template of a heroine in a war-ridden future grappling with the issue of android life is the same, many unique elements exist such as the giant masses of metal called "jags", the future vision of Tokyo Japan, and the uncovered root of the conflict.
Um, I just have to say that Vexille looks like a cool video game. I don't know if that's a good thing, though. The story was a bit "meh" and the characters didn't really jump out at me. A decent movie, but I'm glad that I rented it instead of buying.
