Amusing stylized violence,
This review is from: Dead Leaves [DVD] (DVD)
If you want a good story, character development and a slow pace, then look elsewhere. Because Dead Leaves sets out to be something else entirely.
Pandy and Retro, the main characters of the animation, wake up from their hibernation capsules naked and with their memories wiped. They soon start on a violent rampage through the city while speculating wildly about who they are. When the police finally capture them they are sent to the maximum security orbital prison "Dead Leaves". But is maximum security enough to stop these two? And why do they get the feeling they've been there before?
The disc features english and japanese soundtracks with optional english subtitles. The extras include the usual staff interviews and an amusing video of the staff doing a Dead Leaves drinking game.
Dead Leaves is all about fast, wild and crude over-the-top cartoon violence. It has a very unique art and animation style that suits the story very well. Just don't go looking for any depth to the story, because it simply isn't there. Definitely worth watching though.
