Appleseed: EXMachina

Deunan and Briareos is back, this time they are facing against a invisible enemy. Cyber-Punk fiction by Shirow Masamune.

The animation style has changed alot from the first movie. This time, it’s semi cell shaded and photo-realistic (as some say). As you can see in the above image, thats Deunan, compare it to the previous movie and you see the difference. Is this style works well with 3D, the first movie probably nice in 3D with proper developed animation graphics and such, I guess 3D could give a better Light v Shadow … 9/10

I have to say, it is awesome, I loved it. Be it dubbed or original voiced, it is good! Definately worth to buy on DVD (HD or whatever). The voices ain’t a issue, still wanting to see the Japanese voice overs haha! 8/10

The soundtrack for the movie is awesome, the different types of tracks that gives off a atmosphere to suit the action, subject, place, etc is nice. Alot of the viewers somewhat enjoyed the credits song by Lina Ohta (Puzzle-Riddle). (Just get the OST off Amazon or wherever because its good). Sounds 9/10

The plot, story, and action.
hhmmm, I don’t know what to say here, there have been numerous mixed reviews. Things like nothing compared to the first or good etc. I think it lacked some action. The action for the opening was ok, then theres barely anything in the middle but talks and small picky fight scenes till the end. Another fight sequence thats… well.. Not enough “Action” . The story in the other hand was probably the focus point. The story is well written, I can see something like that happen in reallity too. Of course, without the Appleseed world technology. I give these parts a 7/10

Overall,  I give this movie a 8.5/10
Well, the action lacked, so if it was more balanced out with better action then small fights then I think it would of been up to 9/10, lost 0.5 ;_;
