boring but pretty
This movie is just oozing style, the animation is cutting edge, and the sound mixing is ridiculous in all the right ways. I wasn’t a huge fan of the English dub, and there are story beats that don’t really land for me, but Redline more than makes up for these by having some of the best animated sequences in anime.
I don’t even know how to begin this review, I’m writing this while the credits roll, as well as my own tears. This movie is beautiful, in both the visual and emotional storytelling. Not only is it beautiful, it’s smart as hell! The potential reality of how us, as humans interact with real artificial intelligence is explored, as well as how we would cope with that reality. I just don’t really have any more words, just know that I wholeheartedly recommend this movie to anyone who loves romance or sci fi. You won’t regret it.
