    Synopsis


    Redline
    A pair of fearless speed demons compete in an intense underground auto race in which the only rule is to win at all costs, and they find themselves pitted against some of the most-reckless drivers ever to get behind the wheel in this hyperstylized, animated adrenaline rush from Japan. Every five years, the fastest drivers in the world put their skills to the test in Redline, a racing tournament where quick reflexes could mean the difference between life and death. This year the competition is especially fierce, but JP is determined to blast past the checkered flag first. However, sexy racer Sonoshee isn't going to give up first place without a fight. Meanwhile, scheming gangsters and crooked politicians attempt to fix the race to their advantage, and when JP falls for Sonoshee, his emotions threaten to eclipse his determination to blow away the competition. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A completely breath taking film

      I first heard about this movie on anime news network and didn't really think anything of it. I started the movie and it instantly drew me in. As soon as it starts it throws you into this fantastic visually stimulating world. I honestly haven't seen fluid animation like this in such a long time. This movie was supposed to be released a few years ago, but due to some setbacks it wasn't. So it was in production for almost a whole decade. But I digress, as to not ruin anything, I won't go too far into detail. The first race pulls you in and doesn't let go. I was actually out of my seat rooting for the main character to win lol. After the first race, the movie dulls down a little to deliver the finer points of detail, like character descriptions and some of their history. Sounds boring right? Nope, I can assure you that it is anything but boring. The crazy thing about this movie is that it has soooooo many random parts into that make you say "What?", but at the same time you understand why they put it there and what's actually going on. This is actually what made me watch this for like 2 days straight lol. If you're a big fan of anime and don't mind subtitles, I highly suggest watching this in its native language(Japanese). It adds to the feel of the movie in general because the actors basically bring the characters to a whole other level. Another great thing is the soundtrack. It's just about perfect in every way for the movie, BUT it's not for everyone. It can get a little over the top rave style here and there(which I honestly love). Short Version: A racing/love story with comical aspects thrown in. STOP!! You better not be thinking Fast and the Furious, b/c it's nothing like that. DO NOT pass this up. Even if you turn out not liking it, it won't(shouldn't) seem like a waste of time/disappointment at all. It'll appeal to you one way or another. MADHOUSE really took my breath away with this and I hope they're working on another project right now.

      If Speed Racer and Gurren Lagann Had a Love Child

      This has it all. Great story. Great characters. Great soundtrack. Humor. Once every five years, the most deadly racing tournament in the universe is held. JP is a reckless dare-devil driver that is oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car versus organized crime and militaristic governments that want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee. Will she prove his undoing, or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race?

      This is, no joke, the movie my boyfriend and I watch every single Valentine's day. Think Speed Racer but even better. I really enjoy this movie, and so far everyone we've showed it to does as well. If you're looking for a fun time, a whole lot of action, marvelous hair, and to find out that love really does win all battles, then this is the movie for you.

      Surpassed my expectations. Beautiful animations and a soundtrack you will want to listen to after the movie is done. So ridiculously over the top, but fun in its own right. The English dub is high quality if you don't want to read subtitles. If you are a fan of action orientated anime in general, you will enjoy this film.

      Gorgeous Racing Anime

      The visuals for the film are all completely hand drawn and are of the highest quality. The film took several years to complete and is worth seeing for the visuals alone. It helps that the style is fast and cool, like a mix of Guardians of the Galaxy, F-Zero, and the works of Shinichiro Watanabe (Samurai Champloo, Space Dandy, Cowboy Bebop).

      Definitely an anime to experience. Its precise detail and style is beautiful to behold. Although the story is simplistic and predictable, the way it is conveyed in art is truly spectacular. Blu-ray provides an uncompromising experience in audio and video.

      All hand drawn, and seven years in the making, this anime motion picture fires on all cylinders. The art style is kind of a retro anime meets Afro Samurai. The story line is that of a action movie with a lot of charm. Best anime purchase in a long time.

      I had little to no expectations going into this movie, and I was still blown away. The animation is crisp, bright and well-drawn. The characters are all larger than life, and the movie is overall balls-to-the-wall racing action for 85 minutes straight.
