"Blu-Ray Disc, Beyond High Definition."
When a paramilitary task force called E.S.W.A.T. And its operations in the year 2199 olympus, a futuristic utopia where humans...

"...vividly realized future world and hypercharged battle scenes...innovative use of out-of-the-box animation...  Mark Schilling, The Japan Times
"...[knowledge of original story] is not required...[as screenplay] smartly establishes the state of play in post-apocalyptic haven Olympus in 2138.  Richard Kuipers, Variety

Editor's Note
This computer-animated feature continues the story of Deunan Knute, a woman warrior whisked away from the ruined battleground where she lives to a distant city in which mankind seems to have put its destructive past behind it. The utopia of Olympus is maintained by the Bioroids, artificial people whose emotional capabilities are diminished in order to balance the careening passions of regular human beings. As a member of ESWAT, Deunan finds herself threatened by cyborg terrorism, a surprise attack on Olympus, and the appearance of Tereus, a human doppelganger for her cyborg lover and partner Briareos. Based on an early manga by Masamume Shirow, also the author of GHOST IN THE SHELL, APPLESEED explores similar themes as Shirow's masterwork while still containing the action sequences audiences expect from his offerings.

Variety 8 of 10
Pumped to the max visually but saddled with a shopworn story about futuristic man-machines threatening to overrun their human creators, "Appleseed: Ex Machina" should keep anime geeks entertained. But this third feature derived from Masumune Shirow's 1985 manga will face a much stiffer task drawing in newcomers...Knowledge of Kazuyoshi Katayama's basic 1988 original and Aramaki's hotted-up 2004 remake is not required to enter the "Ex Machina" world. Screenplay by Kiyoto Takeuchi smartly establishes the state of play in post-apocalyptic haven Olympus in 2138...Staying true to their roots, Aramaki and his team wisely stick to the distinctly plain and simple facial design of first-generation anime and don't attempt to ape the ultra-fluid body movements of Pixar and DreamWorks toons...Highly marketable soundtrack features a host of electronica well-knowns, including Yellow Magic Orchestra alumni Haruomi Hosono, Yukihiro Takahashi and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Involved for the first time in film, noted fashion designer Miucci Prada receives prominent credit in press materials for creating two of the arresting ensembles worn by Deunan. - Richard Kuipers
