Anime is a masochists hobby. Ignoring the obvious language barrier, fans must slog through hundreds of hours of poorly written and animated shows/films before uncovering anything remotely good. Combine that with my high standards and its a miracle if I see even one good feature or episodic series a year.
Difficult to follow, riddled with plot holes and a terrible score by Paul Oakenfold all add up to a mediocre film that explores familiar territory already covered by better films like Ghost in the Shell. Sure the cel-shading and rotoscoping are incredibly impressive but they can’t make up for all it’s other short comings.
