Product Overview

The next installment in the Appleseed franchise, Appleseed: Ex Machina, available on DVD! Produced by John Woo and Directed by Shinji Aramaki, and featuring next generation CG technology, Appleseed: Ex Machina is back bigger and badder!

Based on the manga from reknown creator Shirow Masamune, in this movie, Deunan and Briareos are both partners and lovers. As members of ESWAT, the elite forces serving Olympus, they are deployed everywhere trouble strikes. The two fighters find their partnership tested in a new way by the arrival of Tereus who uncannily resembles Briareos before the wartime injuries that led to his becoming a cyborg. At the same time, Olympus finds itself under a stealth attack. Cyborg terrorism, deadly nanotech zealots, and rioting citizens are just some of the threats that Deunan must contend with as she fights to save Olympus.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review 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.
