Reviews

The most dangerous and exciting car race in the universe is held only once every five years. And that's tonight. The competitors are lined up at the starting block. In his vehicle, JP, the most daredevil driver on the circuit, is ready for the green light. Female driver Sonoshee, with whom he is secretly in love, is also on the starting line. She will stop at nothing to get on to that podium. In this race, not only is anything possible, but also anything is allowed. The film is produced by the studio MADHOUSE (Ninja Scroll, Summer Wars), directed by Takeshi Koike (The Animatrix's "World Record") and written by Katsuhito Ishii (Piroppo, Trava).

I acquired the Japanese Special Edition when it was released (put it on preorder as soon as it became available) and it is the Blu-Ray to beat for Audio/Visual quality of anime. The Audio and video are just about perfect and reference quality. The only thing truly not quite up to par on the Japanese release is the English subtitles.

When the date for the UK release was FINALLY finalized, I had to decide whether to wait for the US version at a later date or import the UK release. Well it became obvious the US was not going to get a collectors edition (confirmed by Manga themselves) and the UK Collector's Edition cost is right about the same as the US release pre-order list price... so I went with this UK release. The subtitles are noticeably improved and I do enjoy the Japanese w/ English subtitles a lot more now (my preferred way to watch for other reasons discussed later.) English Dub was ok as far as acting, but JP's character comes across more goofy with mannerisms like a surfer/greaser combined rather than cool and collected. And Sonoshee has some really b****y dialog moments that changes her character into something less classy and charming than she was before. With much more language and innuendo added in the English dub it definitely deserves an R/Mature rating now - the Japanese with English subtitles would still be PG-13/R borderline equivalent. Below is text of my review from Blu-Ray.com for the UK Collectors Edition release of Redline, no need for me to rewrite a new review from scratch:

MOVIE
Redline is an anime movie with a rather straightforward plot about racing and goals, it's not a deep or serious movie. It was made for the sole purpose to have a fun experience watching...and it excells greatly in doing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic visual treat. 25 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Redline is a must see for anyone who is a fan of animation! Produced without the aid of any 3D modelling but only reference figurines of the vehicles themselves, it took 7 years to produce this movie and it was certainly worth it.

Everything about this movie was more than I expected, the unique art style, likable characters and upbeat soundtrack. The only downfall of Redline is that the pace is so mind-numbingly fast that the scenes with no racing aren't quite as exciting. However ever frame is a visual treat.

I would definitely recommend watching this in HD. This double pack is perfect for compatibility and is great to bring a disc to your friends house. All the extras are included from the Japanese special edition which is great, only one extra doesn't appear which is James Shimoji's Redline Day night club footage, however that is more of a music video than anything else. This is the definite edition of Redline as you get all the extras subtitled and an amazing dub to boot, so it is a great advantage over the Japanese Special Edition.

If you loved Redline than I suggest you check out 'Trava' which contains characters from the same universe. 'Dead Leaves' is a definite watch if you enjoyed the speed and style of the animation, not to mention it is also a whole lot of fun. Dead Leaves [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good BluRay for an amazing film. 9 Nov 2011
A month ago I was lucky enough to catch REDLINE on the big screen during the Camera Japan Festival in Rotterdam, and it blew the entire audience away. The story sure is simple enough and built around clichees, but that does not harm the film in any way. For the sole purpose of REDLINE is to present viewers with the feeling of accelaration, and the goofy charm of having the good guy win over seemingly insurmountable odds by sheer use of adrenaline. Well, that and nitro. Lots of nitro!

Over 7 years in the making, the whole film is meticulously hand-drawn, no 3D-cgi models were involved. In fact, cgi has only been used to embellish gleaming surfaces, color effects and such. It looks amazing and urge everyone to try and see this in HD at the very least.

And now we have Manga UK's BluRay which is pretty much flawless. The image rocks, the sound is True HD for both Japanese and English soundtracks, and the extras include one extra race (a try-out promo made five years before the main feature) and a whopping 67 minute "Making of" which delivers the goods. The 18-page booklet contains extra interviews and a small essay. All in all a very good release, especially for this price!
