This review will be fairly short, because this movie is not something to be analysed, not to be pulled apart. I can’t explain to you why Redline is one of the greatest anime films of all time. There are certain movies that people call an experience and Redline fits that definition to a T. Redline is a movie I want to see in imax and in 3D and I rarely like both of those.
Redline is a racing movie, thats all you need to know, because the story is the last thing you should be caring about. It’s generic as shit and the characters are slightly more then cardboard cutouts, but you won’t care. You’ll be too busy looking at the amazing goddamn animation. The animation drawn by hand and over 7 fucking years. Do your eyes a favor and watch this movie because they will be orgasming.
Redline has its slow moments, but if you let yourself get a little invested in the characters and wait it out, you’ll be treated by a Gurren-Lagannesque finale of epic proportions. The race(s) in this movie are heart-pounding and tense as shit, with moments of awesome that make you want to jump out of your seat. All this excentuated by a fantastic soundtrack that will get your fist and blood pumping.
Do yourself a favor and watch this movie, get your bros together and WATCH THIS MOVIE. It’s an experience that will leave you stunned at the end and engrossed along the way. It’s hard for me to convey, but thats okay, because it’s incentive for you to watch it. Do it. Now.
