** I'm still not sure about this whole NEW era of 3D models replacing artwork.. even though I quite like the style of Yuusuke Kozaki (Fire Emblem Awakening, for example), which these all seem to be based on.
Anyway. This movie is well-organized nonsense with a beautiful coat of paint!! From great color usage, to nice-looking clothing and suit designs, interfaces, characters, etc.
Sadly, there is not much to say about the animation, action or script itself. It feels like a poor mix of Ghost in the Shell's futuristic technology, Evangelion's end of the world nonsense, and terrible monster designs and general desperation from Knights of Sidonia.
I'm sure there is a message somewhere about society or something, but it all feels force-fed, not explained well enough and not enjoyable. Confusing speeches aside, the plot is too simplistic and doesn't leave any room for creativity or imagination.. Like they didn't have fun making it. Most people won't probably like the world and lore they built. It lacks details and love in many areas.
Wanted to see it, did, and now I can get over it.
