We’ve mentioned the movie before, but now we see that Appleseed Ex Machina is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on March 11th (and HD-DVD for those poor saps who bought into a losing format). This is the follow on to the previous movie, Appleseed, which was a re-make of the 1988 film, Appleseed, which, in turn, as based on the Appleseed manga. Whew.
Just looking at the visuals, it’s amazing how far animation has come, and what amazing visual effects you can get with CGI. I remember in the 2004 film, the ‘human’ characters looked really plastic-y and fake, but the action was top notch. It’ll be interesting to see how this film picks up from the ending of the first.
