Synopsis:

In a world where mankind is at the brink of destruction, one lone scientist has concocted the means to save it: bioroids. These artificial humans coexist with humans in the city of Olympus, under the watchful eye of the supercomputer Gaia -- to stabilize society. The military strongly opposes their use, however, and the elite soldier Deunan may hold the key to saving both the human race and the lives of the bioroids. Teamed up with an old friend, Briareos, Deunan must race against the clock to discover the secret of the Appleseed before countless lives are tragically lost...

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
  • Movie (1 ep x 105 min)
  • 2001

In the year 2065, life on Earth is almost extinct due to an invasion of creatures known as "Phantoms." Only a few cities remain in the midst of a wasteland, which are shielded by barriers that the spirit-like Phantoms cannot cross. While the brilliant scientist Aki Ross and her mentor Dr. Sid want to find a way to peacefully end the conflict with the Phantoms, the military would prefer to fire a space cannon to eradicate the mysterious life forms from the planet – though Earth might be destroyed in the process. In a race against time, can Aki and Dr. Sid find a solution before the cannon is fired?

Both films feature post-apocalytic settings with plots around action and conspiracies. Both have awesome computer graphics, though Appleseed has gone for a more of an anime feel whereas Final Fantasy went for realism. If jaw-dropping computer graphics and action are your thing then check both of these out.

Appleseed and The Spirits Within are sci-fi movies done exclusively with computer generated technology, which lends them the same overall feeling, 3D animation dominating the viewing experience almost completely. The plot is similar, in both cases humanity is at the brink of extinction and it is up to scientists to come up with solutions.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
  • Movie (1 ep x 101 min)
  • 2005

In a time of great heroes, the evil Sephiroth and the power of Meteor were vanquished by a warrior named Cloud Strife and his companions. Now, though the life stream of the world has been restored, certain people have become sick with Geo Stigma -- an illness which is as mysterious as it is incurable. Meanwhile, in the shadows, a new enemy has appeared: Kadaj, who holds the key to the destruction of all life. Against insurmountable odds, Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, Cid and the rest of the gang must band together one last time to defeat Kadaj and save the world from annihilation.

Ooric

I watched "FFVII: Advent Children" after watching the end of the Final Fantasy VII videogame. Like the anime movie "Appleseed", the animation was state-of-the-art and the music was of course great (for fans of Final Fantasy music). The Advent Children plot on the other hand... it was "cheesy" (unrealistic). I thought Appleseed had a much better plot while Advent Children had much better music. Both had state-of-the-art graphics and lots of action (fight scenes) so they should have similar reactions. Advent Children was like the Matrix in an anime while the Appleseed movie was just artsy. As a fan of great visuals I highly recommend these movies.

Sangokagome

Both are great movies with amazing CGI animation and a serious feel to them, with the occasional laugh. A futuristic setting is where they both take place, and the main characters are both trying to destroy a great evil in their respective worlds. Both are wonderful pictures and are quite the experience to watch.

Metropolis

Metropolis
  • Movie (1 ep x 109 min)
  • 2001

Metropolis is a grand high-tech city-state populated by humans and robots alike. It is in these streets that Detective Shunsaku Ban and his sidekick Kenichi search for the rebel scientist Dr. Laughton who unbenounced to them, is developing a super android named Tima as a tool for the Duke of Metropolis. What starts out as a normal case turns into mayhem as the scientist is murdered, and the true plans of the Duke are finally revealed...

Both Metropolis and Appleseed explore futures where technology and scientific advance radically affects humanity and people's outlook on moral and ethical issues.

Both, Appleseed and Metropolis have superb animation and music, both are cyberpunk movies that also have social and ethical themes.

Akira

Akira
  • Movie (1 ep x 125 min)
  • 1988

Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.

Both feature a different and possibly darker vision of the future. Both are very well done and feature intersting action sequences that fans of both would enjoy. When I watch either of them I get an almost lonely vibe from both.

Animatrix

Animatrix

Witness the true beginning of the Matrix: how men created the machines and how those machines stood up against their masters, and the effects of the great war that waged between them, which in the end led to the fall of mankind. Watch the ship Osiris and its efforts to warn the remaining humans of the imminent attack; follow a champion who happens to break free from the Matrix; explore the exploitation of a glitch in the overall system; observe the story of the Kid and how he was found by Neo; travel with an investigator who tracks the well-known hacker Trinity; and learn the secrets of the Matrix in other wondrous ways.

Apocalyptic worlds, great big robots, explosions, what more could you need? Big questions about the nature of freedom and humanity itself, you say? Well, you drive a hard bargain, but okay. Appleseed and Animatrix, other than both starting with A, also share the ability to leave your desires for philosophy and destruction equally satisfied.
