Movie Info

Redline is a racing film created by studio Madhouse (Paprika, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars). Redline is about the biggest and most deadly racing tournament in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, including JP, a reckless dare-devil driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car - all the while, organized crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee - but will she prove his undoing, or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race? -- (C) Anchor Bay

Audience Reviews for Redline

Redline is one phenomenal ride! It far exceeded my expectations. It takes a simple concept and pushes it as far and as hard as it can (very appropriate for a racing movie). The animation is sensational with great style, imagination, and action (and a healthy dose of humor). The voice acting has epic attitude and heart. For fans of shonen sports anime, Redline more than delivers.

Oh, now THIS is a lot of fun. Think Wacky Racers turned up to 11 with a thumping soundtrack and some classy animation. Highly recommended!

it's based on a story from Katsuhito Ishii, so you know there won't be much to bite in that area. The animation is fantastic, and there's always something happening. A bit more story and this could have been even better, neverless, i still had fun watching it.

Takeshi Koike's Redline puts the gear in overload and comes rushing out full blast.

This animation is heavy on the science fiction and despite a thin plot, it offers a lot in a matter of 100 minutes. In fact, it offers too much. There are so many things thrown on the screen that there isn't enough time to explain or digest everything. Sure, this picture is far from boring, but is it an enjoyable watch? Somewhat. Many of the characters lack sufficient development, which make them difficult to follow and the same can be said about some of the plot details.

In regards to the racing, it is a blast. These scenes are packed with adrenaline and energy that provide a full on adrenaline rush.

Visually, the animation looks great. It has that mature look and feel to it, which works well, because this is made for an older audience. The voice work is also a positive, although it is difficult to screw that up with the over the top and wacky characters popping in and out from scene to scene.

Redline definitely has its moments, but maybe a little more control and time management of the story is what it needs.
