A gorgeous work of animation, juxtaposing photo-realistic backgrounds with surrealistic images and actions. It rewards the effort of seeing it on the big screen.
The writers leave us little to think about after they've created such blunt stereotypes of the bad and the good.
Great to look at, but it's more silly than profound.
It's a handsome thing, familiar and new at once, thoroughly entertaining if hardly memorable.
The more traditionally drawn 2-D human characters are as flat, in every sense of the word, as can be.
Only gets into serious trouble when it focuses on human interaction. That's because directors Moon-saeng Kim and Park Sunmin have populated the movie with every stereotype in Asian animation.
With livelier, more idiosyncratic voices--as well as more believable dialog--these interesting people and places could have sprung to life in a vivid way.
Ultimately turns out to be more fascinating as eye candy than as a story.
Visually very impressive but cliched and predictable...just another clone of 'Metropolis' that falls far short of its inspiration.
For those appreciative of computer animation, special effects and cinematic production design, Sky Blue will more than suffice as entertainment. Those looking for something lively to watch in the foreground may be disappointed.
Thankfully ... ditches much of the ersatz philosophy and concentrates on pure explodo.
A riveting, eco-wise epic that'll do fans of both Ralph Nader and Katsuhiro Otomo proud.
I used to be a big fan of anime when I was younger but I gradually fell away from it and moved onto different styles as time went on. I never stopped liking it, I just didn't seek it out anymore. When I heard of this though, I decided to delve back into it. Unfortunately, this effort didn't reignite my interest.
In 2142, mankind's ecological rape of the planet has sparked a global catastrophe, with survivors living within Ecoban, a city whose energy is provided through the exploitation of proletariat 'diggers'. Jay (Catherine Cavadini), a young female trooper, must decide where her loyalties lie when her friend's actions threaten to destroy Ecoban... but possibly save the planet.
Very impressive animation is let down with a seriously dull storyline. In fact, I struggled to see this film to the end, it was so painfully boring. On paper it sounds good and on screen it looks superb but the pace is all wrong and ruins what could have been something special. Diehard anime fans may find plenty to enjoy from this and I enjoy a good animation as much as anyone, but this did not hold my interest in the slightest. There's no denying the beautiful animation but it's wasted and no matter how good it is, it can't save such a borefest.
If left on the television, in the background, with the sound turned down while you attend to some household chores it may serve some purpose - much in the same way that an eye-catching fish tank will. As entertainment though? It's seriously lacking.
Aw this is pretty good animation with a very noticeable clash of good vs evil from the two lead characters. Recommended.
