This review is from: Redline [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)This film centres round the story of an enormous underground car race that takes place every 5 years called Redline and the drivers who are competing in this immense event. The only rule of the race is that whoever passes the finishing post first is the winner and as such the race itself becomes more like a survival event with cars being heavily armed to blow the competition away - literally. The hero of the piece - JP - is of course the one who bucks the trend with an unarmed car and the belief he can win on speed alone.
The film itself is beautifully done, with striking animation and a great use of vivid colour throughout. It really does provide a visual feast that can almost be a little too much for the eyes at times - especially during some of the more vivid race sequences.
Overall this film held my attention at all times, kept me thoroughly entertained and although the plot is not as complex as many anime films it still manages to contain both style and substance due to the fabulous production values and unique style. A truly great anime and a worthy addition to any anime collection!
