I saw Redline
yesterday and since some jaded people in this forum won't watch something they don't know unless people are making buzz for it, or declare things that they haven't seen as bad and/or overhyped based on the fact that people they don't know make buzz for it, I thought I should make this thread. Also, this film simply deserves its own thread. Unfortunately, you can't really get it right now because for some odd reason the publishers are really fucking lazy about getting it out, despite it being such a great movie. It was originally finished in 2009 after 6-7 years of development. Perhaps it doesn't have the appeal for the japanese audience since it is rather western. While it is licensed in the U.S., even the japanese market only recently got a release on boo-ray and still nothing in sight in either the U.S. or europe for that matter.
However, the development time that it had really shows. Absolutely gorgeous animation. But perhaps I should say what this film is about: Racing crazy cars against aliens in even more insane vehicles on absolutely demented planets, which governments want to kill you. That's it. Not that deep, but the characters are well made and are being fleshed out during the film. The story isn't fantastic, but it serves the purpose and you won't really notice anyway since the animation alone should leave you speechless throughout the entire film.AWO has a review of it
, so if you don't want to take my word for it, take theirs.
