This is an anime that can answer the cynic's question, "If it were any good, why isn't it live action?"
Redline is the type of production that would be patently impossible to pull off with either live action or CGI animation, and something which could only come from Japan. It is balls-to-the-petal-to-the-metal crazy, looks and sounds astounding, and is a joyous thrill from beginning to end!
If you wanted to find something to complain about, the story is a bit thin, and some of the scenes are utterly ridiculous ("That could never happen," says the stick-in-the-mud). But this is a film that does not need to make sense. It is an exercise in pure rocking style! It will leave a smile on your face.
One of the most stylish and exhilarating action films I've seen in a long time.
There are very few racing movies, and this one shows why.
It falls in the same trap like all the others. The first one being there always seems to be another gear in the transmission.
The hero is always able to catch up, no matter how far behind. It goes on, and each of these makes the typical racing movie very difficult to immerse the viewer.
Still, it's an OK movie. The untz untz at the start of the movie, when the racers show up, is part of the reason I enjoyed it. It has got a good vibe to it.
