Renaissance attempts to blend sci-fi wonder with stark noir animation, but is often more fun to look at than to watch.

Beautiful, stark images and a wondrous score do a lot to sell this French made sci-fi/detective hybrid (ala Blade Runner) that's unfortunately undercut by a script that's too standard film noir. The medium is stunning ... if only they'd concentrated a bit more on the story ...
An interesting script but the high contrast black & white animation is distracting and tiresome. Slightly above average graphic novel-ish sci-fi crime noir.
A graphic novel in movie form that works really quite well in providing a cool, dark, film noir atmosphere. It helps having the new James Bond to provide the lead voice too. The sci-fi story is a fairly good one and quite appropriate to the style of the movie. However, the plot can drag a bit at times.
The animation style may seem original as a film but it pretty much resembles the computer game XIII as well as the last Spider-Man animated series. Though the thick blacks and pure whites add a lot of style and atmosphere in some scenes it becomes hard to differentiate backgrounds from foregrounds. The story itself is quite interesting as mysteries go but is also reminiscent of just about any future mystery set-up where an evil corporation is out for something. The vocal talents are spot on for the majority of the film and the ending is excellent and shouldn't have ended any other way. It results in an overall satisfying film.
