Editorial Reviews

"Redline" is about the biggest and most deadly racing tournament in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, including JP, a reckless dare-devil driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car - all the while, organized crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee - but will she prove his undoing, or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race?

Customer Reviews

One of the best anime movies I've ever seen.
Matthew H.
Just an action packed movie that pumps you up with everything going on and if you can look past the absurdity of it all you will really enjoy it.
Dennis J. Leonard
Amazing animation, great OST, likeable characters, good pacing, and is all around a great anime movie!

Look. I understand. "Anime" isn't a cool thing to most people, not even most self-described "geeks." These days, "anime" is commonly used as shorthand for a particular type of storytelling, characterization, or visualization...and the people who do so NEVER mean it as a compliment. Maybe you're one of these people yourself.

Or maybe you used to watch anime and no longer really do because you've got music, videogames, and regular movies/TV to watch instead. Maybe you used to watch stuff like Cowboy Bebop or FLCL on the Cartoon Network, but never really saw anything else that you liked as much. Maybe you end up spotting some anime that is on Netflix or Hulu, but you don't feel like watching them all the way through.

Does any of that sound like you or someone you know? Then watch this movie.

There's no TV show or comicbook with hundreds of episodes you have to know about first. There's nothing "Final Fantasy" or "Kingdom Hearts"-like about the story or characters. There's no harem of girls surrounding some loser guy. There are no "jokes" involving giant sweatdrops or accidentally copping a feel. This is different from all of that.

Redline is visually astonishing with a soundtrack to match, but contrary to what is often said Redline's strong points aren't JUST those. This movie has great characters, each of whom is memorable in their own way. There's a lot of humor, and the film's comic timing (and restraint!) is spot-on. The story isn't shallow or even minimal. By the time everything ends, you'll know all that needs to be known about who these racers are and why they're doing what they do.

I don't care about racing or cars. But I totally dig Redline. I think you will too.

I watched this when they were showing it as a part of a limited theater release, and I've been aching for it's blu-ray release since! There are few words that can describe how awesome this movie is. The animation is beyond top-notch, with an art style that pops with every frame and keeps your eyes watering from not blinking.

The best way I can describe this film is that its like taking the visual flourish and high-adrenaline action of the live action Speed Racer film, smashing it against the entirety of what made Gurren Lagann one of the most beloved Japanese anime series of the past decade, mixing the two together and cranking all of that up to 11, and then condensing it into an hour and a half experience of visual and aural orgasmica with all of the goodness, none of the filler.

Plus, there's a cute love story in it for those so inclined.

This is one of the most important anime to come along in years. Not only is it visually stunning, but the music and sounds make it truly brilliant. The styling of it makes it so appealing to watch that you won't want it to end. Combine that with an amazing soundtrack, and you will be glad you own it. If you have a home theater system, it will shake your walls.

This is one of those movies that even if you aren't an anime fan, you will love it. All I can say is if you are uncertain about buying it, don't be. Here is the official story synopsis since Amazon doesn't have anything up yet.

`Redline' is a rare film in today's Japanese animation film industry because it is wholly hand drawn (rather than CG) and the stunning visuals on screen justify this audacious decision.

Redline is a racing tournament where anything goes as long as you reach the finishing line. JP is one of the drivers who guides his classic Trans-Am through the pitfalls of the course and tries to avoid the guided weapons coming his way. Sonoshee is another driver who JP is in love with and they both try to survive the onslaught coming from the leaders of Roboworld, where the final race is to take place. With corrupt gambling and ruthless opponents the race (and film) is set up for thrills and spills.

The animation is very impressive, although not as soft as the Ghibli films I particularly enjoy and this is an animation aimed squarely at an adult audience. The racing scenes are particularly well animated and once you realise this is hand drawn the backgrounds and small details stand out all the more.

There is also a `making of' documentary on the disc which sheds some light in the creative process.

I have many, many Japanese anime films in my film collection and this is a worthy addition to that collection. The attention to detail is staggering, the animation is very impressive, the story is pretty decent and the sound effects and dubbing are good as well. All in all if you are a fan of Japanese animation then this is well worth a look, it may be grittier than some films you may have already seen, but it is just as accomplished and well produced.
