Editorial Reviews

Prostitute robot dolls roam empty streets, in their daily search for clients. But those whom they were built to service have ceased to exist: humanity has wiped itself out. In a world of action without purpose, cleaners, guards and whores all respond to their programmed tasks until they in turn become defunct. Malice@Doll is one such prostitute, now in need of repair. In her search for renewal, she becomes aware that her world is being modified, leaving her increasingly open to attack by her former robotic guardians, and in a state of increasing isolation and alienation. Suffering from attack and ravishing by a grotesque tentacled bionic creature, she is mysteriously transformed into a human being. Overcome with joy and wonder, Malice seeks to transfer this gift through a loving kiss. But with every gift there comes a curse.

Definitely recommended for fans of unconventional, yet rewarding fare.

The story/plot if there really was a cohesive one sucked.

A long-standing interest in anime, a glimpsed online review of a desperately obscure CG title, and the 5-year hunt was on. Well, today I finally managed to get my hands on this title and watch it.

Most user reviews, both here and on IMDB, have it depressingly wrong. This is not a hentai title with sci-fi pretensions. This is a much rarer animal - a true adult feature that that contains sex and nudity, as well as the monstrous and grotesque, as part of its philosophy and plot, and doesn't exist as an excuse for them. In light of this, the disappointment of the porn-hunters who were drawn to Malice@Doll through its mis-classification as hentai is understandable.

What of the film? A full review and analysis would take pages, but there are definitely shades of a much less-populated Blade Runner in its premise, as well as Chiaki Konaka's earlier work, "Serial Experiments Lain," in the denouement. One of the most distinct characteristics of the film is its full-3D CG animation, reminiscent, both in its style and graphical simplicity, of video cutscenes from role-playing games such as Final Fantasy VII. Such a style is rare even now, and for good reason, since full-CG movies haven't often been successes (see Final Fantasy: TSW and Kaena for example). It also dates extremely fast. All the more remarkable that a full seven years after its release, the graphics in Malice still work extremely well, and I can't think of a moment in this film when I found them jarring or distracting. Working within a tight budget, the filmmakers managed to wring every drop of visual performance from their technology. Even character movement, which much more recent CG films like Appleseed have ended up botching, is pulled off with aplomb, due in no small part to skillful editing and camera angles.

Format: DVD
I thought this film was the very best adult anime I have ever seen. Instead of disgusting scene after disgusting scene, this transports the viewer into a cross world of Alice in Wonderland (if she was a hooker) and the grim, ominous surroundings of Blade Runner. You get to know each character and there is an uncomfortable sense of forboding that no other film in this genre has ever even thought of. The adult scenes are mostly obscured, employing artistry within perversion. The setting and plot are already very grimmy subject matter. They don't need to make this film exploitive, and that is what makes it work. The emphisis is not on graphic sex but more about telling a strange and surreal story; the images are radical, surreal, violent, perverse, and ultimately wonderful. I will never again watch another piece of adult anime because there is no hope that it could ever compare to what I consider to be a masterpeice of modern surrealistic cinema.

Format: DVD
I was...impartial to this movie. Was not to my liking or disliking, but I could easily see how you might find yourself on either one side or the other. I didn't know what to expect and this was nowhere near what I expected anyway. My hopes is that you will not start this movie in the same position as I was.
Minor spoilers, but you wouldn't see it coming anyway.

What to expect when you watch this movie:
1 Lots of shadowy scenery
2 Slow story line
3 Many plot holes
4 Much twisted and dark imagery
5 Moderate animation

Now for greater explanation.
1 There is no sunlight in this realm, and with that, no distinction of time frames. I think this was meant to look like a dark and desolate world and that was defiantely how i percieved it. There were also many shots of just the scenery after an emotional peak of the main character. I wasn't sure what I was looking at because sometimes it would just be a hallway or door or mess of rubble and circutry, and the unlighted feeling of the movie doesnt help distinguish these things any more.

2 This is not an action film. This is not hentai nor anime porn, though it does contain pornographic material. Roughly 10 minutes of it at best, and well sepatered throughout the entire show. I would assume its a creepily dark suspence film.

3 The setting is a post apocolyptic world. No humans exist, but the machinces we created continue to perfom their tasks to the best of thier ability. There is not one explanation for anything in this movie. Robots seem to have opinions and even willed dislikings. There is also no inner monologues so simple and inane questions are asked aloud repeatedly. Even at the end, you won't know whats going in.
