Appleseed

Rating: 3½ Rampages Deunan and Briareos

Synopsis:
In the futuristic metropolis of Olympus, a terrorist action is taking place. A special ESWAT team, including Deunan Knute and Briareos Hecatonchires, is sent in to deal with the attack. They succeed, but one of terrorists manages to escape. The OAV tells a story of a terrorist plot to take over Gaia...the central computer running Olympus. The plot involves a disillusioned ESWAT officer and the terrorist who got away and Hitomi, Deunan's bioroid friend who is used as a pawn to gain access to Gaia.

Review:
A very human story that asks just where are we headed, and should we even head there? Beautifully drawn, good characters and a solid plotline make this a great movie. But be warned, like many Masamune Shirow stories, youd better be paying attention or youre likely to be lost. Avoid the dub at all costs.

Available subbed & dubbed from Manga Entertainment.
