    'Its development took seven years and used 100,000 hand-made drawings.' (Wikipedia)

    Much like Gravity (2013), you don't watch Redline if you're looking for an intriguing story.
    Redline is self-aware and achieved what it set out to do.
    (Which is to be awesome, firing on all cylinders.)

    Still remains the most visually impressive 2D animated production I have seen to date.

    It's like Speed Racer meets Death Race. The animation was kinda cool, even though sometimes it was hard to tell what was going on, and the races were alright. Everything else, though, was meh. I just never really got into it.

    The racing scenes are exhilarating and there's enough crazy bio-weapons, tits, mecha and insane support characters for most anime fans to slake their thirst on. I enjoyed it but more for the brilliant design than the narrative which is pretty tame and superficial at best: duck-tailed Mr. Cool wants to win the race and the girl - it is what it is.

    The thick shadowed design is gorgeous and the look of the weapons and cars pretty amazing. All in all a neon clusterfuck of sound and fury. Easily enjoyed and easily forgotten.

    It's gonna be difficult for me to talk about this movie without mentioning Speed Racer. Honestly, many of the reasons I like this movie are for the same reasons I loved speed racer. A series of over the top, unrealistic, off-the-wall races involving unrealistic cars, lots of danger, cheesy lines and lots of lots of tension. That's really all i have to say about this movie because it is pretty shallow. The whole story of the Roboworld government trying to…

    despite my long time, deep admiration for the beautiful, melancholic films of studio ghibli, they've always seemed to lack a certain je nais se quoi. basically, LOTS OF FAST FUCKING DANGEROUS CARS.

    "All I know is I'm behind the wheel, so it's my party now."

    Even though Redline is one of the most aesthetically pleasing animated movies there is, the world it depicts is grimy, run-down, and barely liveable. Before the big race almost the whole movie takes place in slums populated by sickly shopkeepers selling opened packs of cigarettes, bookies, and children swarming people on the street to ask for a handout.

    It's evident that the universe of Redline is like…

    7 years and 100,000 drawings = Speed Racer on acid. Pound for pound one of the most entertaining movies I have experienced. Visually stunning, crazy imaginative, makes you feel like you've snorted seven hundred tons of rocket fuel. I want to watch it again, I also want my own theme song. REDLIIIINE!

    This movie goes like a bullet, throwing fifteen different balls in the air while spinning around, doing an interpretive ballet and breakdance-performance while involved in a gunfight that happens in the middle of a kaiju outbreak and a love story, all while juggling the fifteen previously mentioned balls, pausing momentarily to throw them in your face one by one, and it always hits its target beautifully.

    You have been warned.

    Its a high-octane thrill ride. The plot is simple and predictable, but it works. The subplots work to create a believable Fast and Furious in space storyline. The characters are lovable and interesting. JP is a kid at heart while Sonoshee works hard to become the respected adult. But thats not why you watch Redline. You watch it cause it is the most technically impressive anime ever. Seriously, its the best looking animation thing I've ever seen. Overall, its fun and over the top movie.
