Renaissance

Critics Consensus

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

Audience Reviews for Renaissance

  • Oct 08, 2015
    Renaissance has a unique visual style that is more than gimmick. I give it high marks for doing something different and doing it well. Beyond that, solid voice acting from the male lead and solid animation carry the film. The plot is so-so and most of the characters are weak. Renaissance is not very dark or thrilling, but it is noir and it is definitely French. The trailer does not give much away; if you give that a look and like what you see then Renaissance is probably worth the view.

    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 ...

    the art direction and noir feel is cool but oh so forgettable and boring for daniel craig.

    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.
