Undoubtedly one of the best looking - and sounding - movies (anime or otherwise) I have seen in years. A purely traditionally animated film - no synthetic CGI effects here - nearly a decade in the making, the adrenaline-induced Redline will captivate you from beginning to the end. As much as I loved this film, watching it kind of makes me sad because of the lack of 2-D animated feature movies being made; mainly here in the west as we're constantly being flooded with annual CG films that in my opinion, plays it all too safe. And although those movies are decent at most; inexplicably, films that are hand-drawn look far more meticulous than it's computer-generated counterpart and you feel more appreciative for the hard work the animators put in. In fact, the last American-animated film I have seen that was done by hand and not mouse was "The Simpsons Movie" made six years ago in 2007! Before I get too sidetracked, if you have the slightest appreciation for the medium, treat yourself to a movie night and enjoy this well-crafted thrill ride as you can watch "Redline" on Youtube via Manga Entertainment's official channel. Have fun and remember, don't try any of these racing stunts at home!
And now I'm off to buy the film on Blu-Ray
