Herald Views: Redline Opening in US this October


ANN reports that Madhouse’s Redline is going to debut in America on the same day it does in Japan. Granted, it’s only going to run from October 8 to 14 in one theater in San Francisco (The Viz Cinema). Still, it’s a huge gain for Viz in general. I was lucky enough to catch both Patlabor: WXIII and the Escaflowne movie in theaters, and it really is a different experience entirely. The atmosphere, the social elements, you just can’t recreate that in a living room.


Redline, especially looks promising. It’s Madhouse’s signature style lain on top of a story that screams “action.” The film follows JP, a death-defying racer that drives his customized car, the Trans-Am. He enters into the universe’s deadliest event:, an intergalactic racing tournament that pits him against the craziest, most dangerous racers on the planet, among several others.

A trailer was released about a week ago. Personally, I love the visual style –  it’s colorful and clean, but still intense and wild.

I personally recommend that people go out to see this if they get the chance – even if the movie isn’t too hot, the experience will likely be something they will remember.
