This is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time. The images are just breathtaking throughout the entire movie and the music really suits all that is going on on the screen.

As others have said, the story is decent at best, but let's be honest here, the story is NOT the reason you're wanting to watch this movie.



^It's these damn visuals.

When I finished watching this movie I felt like lighting a cigarette was the only appropriate course of action.


Animation studio Madhouse spent seven years crafting Redline. The film consists of roughly 100,000 hand-drawn frames. Unlike most contemporary anime, Redline does not contain any 3D CG rendered models. All of the film’s backgrounds, vehicles, and characters were drawn by hand. The film is a lush, wildly creative, exhilarating throwback to the 1980s era of anime when visionary imagination was coupled with fluid and thoroughly detailed animation in films such as Akira, Cool Cool Bye, Birth, Nausicaa, Honneamise, Robot Carnival, X Densh de Iko, Ai City, and Tenshi no Tamago, to name a few. The film’s primary devotees are those that appreciate the distinct visual aesthetics, conceptual dynamics, and technical prowess of top-notch Japanese animation. Redline is a reminder that no other country on Earth produces 2D animation that is as visually and stylistically lush and imaginative and simultaneously as technically accomplished as Japan. The film is heavenly for viewers that enjoy just sinking into a visually complex, artistically brilliant two-dimensional animation world. The movie is fluidly animated pure exuberant imagination on screen.


A good AMV (watch in 1080p): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vblnsgMZh2c

A caveat is that it took them seven years because they scrapped -everything- halfway through and started over from scratch, while getting most of the work done in between other projects. But it's still impressive, don't get me wrong.

Without a doubt, REDLINE is one of the most impressive and dazzling animated films of the past decade (if not ever). I was fortunate enough to see it on opening weekend in Japan back in 2010, and the experience of seeing it in a great theater on a giant screen with the sound cranked all the way up cannot be overstated. It's a beautiful film, a true triumph of hand-drawn animation, and one of the most thrilling visual experiences in any medium, anywhere. For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, I can't recommend it enough.
