Editorial Reviews

When Alice Hayashi, the youngest person ever to go into space crashes her shuttle at the North Pole, she is thrown thirty years into the future. But her trip through time is far from accidental. The world is now ruled with an iron fist by Nero and his supercomputer, the SS10X. And because of a common link between her, Nero and the SS10X, Alice may be the future's only chance for freedom...

ALICE is the first ever japanese CGI feature film and the first ever japanese production screen using DLP (digital light processing) projection, therefore a unique collectors opportunity. Cross generation appeal…a terminator-style story adapted for people of all ages. Crossover attraction… a movie suitable for young children as well as fans of anime. Detailed 30 minute interview with director, discussing both anime and the birth of CGI technology.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Times and Reasons" March 15, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Believe it or not, there's really not much more that can be said about this story and its production history that hasn't already been said about it in the "description."

Aside from the story itself, which is surprisingly engrossing enough considering the "gimmick" used to sell it, the 'philosophical themes' it explores are likewise intriguing -- exactly WHAT would you do if you were mysteriously jettisoned into the future and discovered that you may have actually been responsible (either directly or indirectly) for the creation of a monstrousity of a 'supercomputer' that arbitrarily decides who lives, who dies or where they are permitted to exist?

This is the dilemma facing young Alice, who first made history as the youngest person ever to travel through space -- or, rather, she WOULD have been, if it had not been for the TwilightZone-esque "detour" her shuttle was forced to make.

As a result of being violently pulled out of the world she knows into a new world totally unfamiliar to her, Alice is faced with a number of unsettling choices that only she can make -- and ANY choice she makes will have direct effect on and consequences for the future world where she now finds herself a visitor:

- Should she cooperate with those who want enlist her aid in destroying the computer and the human tyrant who controls it? Or should she not to get involved?

- Should she remain in the future with her new friends and help them through their struggles? Or should she try to find a way to return to "her own" time and leave them to fend for themselves?

- And even if she could find a way back home, what should she do with the knowledge now granted her? -- Should she then draw upon her vision of her future in an attempt to change history's outcome?

3.0 out of 5 stars Early CGI still quiet entertaining February 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Before you watch the main feature, check out the extra that discusses the early history of CGI animated films; (warning - the audio may be out of sync); because you'll probably enjoy the main feature more if you do. Definitely worth watching if you're interested in the development of CGI.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story, old technique. August 21, 2006
By anton
Well, this is one of the better stories I had in anime films last year. The technique seems to be a little out of day, but its one of the first real cgi films, so I have forgiven them.

Beside the story there is an interesting special feature about the history of cgi anime films. You will love it.
