Synopsis

Set in a different series of events, this story does not follow the previous Appleseed movie canon (despite being directed by the same director of the previous movies); it is an alternate story to their beginnings. Briareos is already a cyborg and did not become separated from Deunan to be later reunited in Olympus to join ESWAT.

Appleseed Alpha depicts the early days of Deunan Knute and Briareos in the 22nd century, as they embark on a journey throughout dystopic ruins of New York in search of the city of Olympus. They are hired by Two Horns, the warlord of the ruined city, to eliminate bipedal combat machines. During the fight, they encounter Iris (voiced by Brina Palencia) and Olson, both on a mission. Deunan and Briareos befriend them and decide to join their mission.

Iris is tasked with preventing the malevolent cyborg Talos from capturing a secret weapon humans were building. Talos uses Iris to activate the gigantic war machine.

It's breddy gud /10


Story is kinda cliché, but hey... If it's not broken don't fix it.

Art is really the strong point. The CG is amazing and everything looks great.

Sound is also great, adds a lot to the experience.

Characters are pretty good, if a little cliché, I don't have any experience with the rest of Appleseed so I won't complain much.

Overall, I like it, looks great, feels great.

Yeah, it's breddy gud.

I found about this franchise with the trailer of Appleseed Alfa post by IGN, “from the creator of Ghost in the Shell”, but is not recommendable to compare because after watching the four movies all i can thing of is “Transformers”, mediocre and disposable entertainment made for a wider audience. Don’t get wrong, the movies are not bad… just mediocre.
Have you ever see a movie and something stupid happed; something that doesn’t make sense, you ask yourself why it happens and answer is “well, y it’s a movie”. You haven realize (or don’t want to accept it) but suspension of disbelief has die read more

Appleseed Alpha is a action, explosions, gunshots adrenaline movie, if you want action with a easy to understand soft story you will like this movie, and sometimes is good to watch something were you don't have to think so much.

Story- 7/10

The plot of this movie is nothing to think about. You have seen it in one form or another a million times before, often better executed. Would've done nicely for a game though. It's the classic bad guy wants to destroy or govern the world so good guys need to stop him.

Art-10/10

i don't like CGI but yes BUT!! this movie was EPIC the artwork was read more
