In the distant technological future, civilization has reached its ultimate Net-based form. An "infection" in the past caused the automated systems to spiral out of order, resulting in a multi-leveled city structure that replicates itself infinitely in all directions. Now humanity has lost access to the city's controls, and is hunted down and purged by the defense system known as the Safeguard. In a tiny corner of the city, a little enclave known as the Electro-Fishers is facing eventual extinction, trapped between the threat of the Safeguard and dwindling food supplies. A girl named Zuru goes on a journey to find food for her village, only to inadvertently cause doom when an observation tower senses her and summons a Safeguard pack to eliminate the threat. With her companions dead and all escape routes blocked, the only thing that can save her now is the sudden arrival of Killy the Wanderer, on his quest for the Net Terminal Genes, the key to restoring order to the world.

Overall 9.2/10 ... Watch this if you are a Blame! fan, just don't watch it with the intent of getting the same experience you got from the manga.

While not being entirely true to the original story, I can't really complain. This was spectacular... The music, the sounds, how everything looked, it was all so cool! I'm sure if you're one of those super picky fans that rip anything that's not exactly the original story you will find a lot of things to complain about. Also I know lots of people are not fans of the 3D art style. Quite frankly I think it fits it read more

In 2003, the Blame! manga was adapted into a six part original network animation by Group TAC, and it was fucking terrible. Having seen this show many years ago, and hearing nothing but praise for the manga (which I still need to get around to reading) I was more than sceptical to say the least in regards to the movie adaptation, produced by Polygon Pictures (known for their sometimes awkward CGI in the cases of Ajin or Knights of Sidonia) and the fact that it was a film adaptation of a popular manga, which often don't go too well. I imagined the series would be read more

TL;DR: Terminator meets AJIN studio. It's a mindless action flick with mediocre CGI and bland characters stuck in a subpar story but the music is atleast nice?
[Story: 2/10 , Characters: 4/10, Art: 6/10, Sound: 7/10, Enjoyment: 6/10]

If you are thinking the Blame! movie is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi action flick where humanity tries to blame the culprit that led to their society's demise, well you can't be more wrong. It's merely a plot hole filled story about a group of villagers, Electro-Fishers, trying to survive in this post-apocalyptic world where technology has deemed humans as contaminants due to lack of Net Terminal Gene therefore must read more

Well you can't recommend it to everyone you know, but if your friends are fans of Blame! or used to CGI you can do it. (without any minor spoilers)

Story 6/10
The story was actually pretty dull. It focusses on another mangaka's story. Imo it's worse than the Tsutomu Nihei's story.

Art 9/10
You can't say that the artside of this movie is bad. Background pictures are amazing. Animation is not bad as well. You will get used to CGI in no time.

Sound 7/10
Soundtrack was just ok. There wasn't anything bad with it, but it also wasn't memorable.

Characters 7/10
If you read/watched Tsutomu Nihei's manga/anime you could easily predict read more
