| What a joke
I am not really a nitpicker. If the story is good, I can accept anything from bad acting, bad animation, low budget, etc. to lack of professionalism in any of the fields involved in a movie as long as I enjoy the film and I feel that, as a viewer, I am being treated with respect.

Unfortunately, Appleseed XIII is not even treating their own characters with respect. Deunan is a spoiled girl, making faces, blowing raspberries and always needing help from Briareos. Her role is to dress in things that look like small upgrades to bathing suits, shout "Briareos!" with anguish whenever she needs to act in battle and having her partner clean up her (easy to understand, since she is a woman) mistakes.

Then there is the cheap overuse of Greek mythology. If in the previous movies there were only a few names or connections to this, in XIII you get ancient Greece drawings as scene breakers, everything has to be connected to some name like the Argonauts, Alcide, Poseidon, etc. At least if they were the least bit connected with the plot, but they are not.

Just for this lack of respect I would consider this a dire failure, but wait, there is more! The animation seems to be done by children in cheap 3D tools. Everything moves in jerks, the faces have no expression to talk about and the action scenes are ridiculous. So even worse than a failure.

And then there is the story. There is no story. Just recycled bits from previous movies, idiotic concepts like the bioroids making the world a better place for humans, because humans are too aggressive and destroy the world, but the bioroids can't make decisions without Gaia, which tells them what to do, so basically the only world at peace is run by computers. I totally agree, but I don't think this is what they were trying to sell.

Bottom line: a waste of time, completely dissing viewers with recycled Japanese clichés, badly animated, stupid story, offensive to women, I could go on and on. Just don't go in the pool.
