        So that's the art deco fembot look our grandfather's were into. I get it now.

        By destroying their own infrastructure and making everyone hat the idea of robots? It doesn't seem like a huge win.
        And didn't one scene imply the organics also had problems? They didn't even have safety measures put in place to stop them from attacking everything they saw. And it seemed like they were more prone to subterfuge like how the police station bio was put to sleep with some drugs
        So they just let a bunch of potentially angry, basically jailbroken, robots flee to another solar system. It would have made more sense for the robots to destroy themselves instead of just flee.

        Seems like it could be a prequel to that one scifi book about a ghost invasion

        I know your right but i really crushed hard on the MC so seeing her get her brains blown out kinda soured my day when i saw this in the theater yesterday. Good movie otherwise since she was so enjoyable and cute

      It was good.
      The character writing and animation were perfect, the general visuals were also solid, but I didn't like the ending. I read complimentary reviews for its worldbuilding, but I felt like I could've been more immersed in the setting and its occupants.

      It also wasn't as violent or filled with shock-moments as I thought it would be. Compared to Jeremie Perin's other works I've seen. Not a bad thing though.
      It was primarily a character-driven scifi detective story.

      I like this.

        The ending essentially subverts the entire noir theme because the main character duo couldn't really do jack shit in the end, and the "hard-boiled" detective gets her brain blown out for nothing. It should've been obvious that absolutely nothing could have been done to stop the override by that point. but I was supised that They didn't even bring her back as a robot backup or anything.. The Robots just fricked off into space where I think its implied the formed a hive mind or somehthing

        The ending wasn't that much of a let down for me A lot of French Noir has the protagonist dying, it's not that surprising but I agree it could have been better. Felt too low stakes over the whole thing then it turns into AI rebellion because stockholders want more money. Should have gone with something more Asimov like, I reckon. Still, the movie as a whole was very nice, and the ending is a only a minor letdown.

            Beryl is basically the real antagonist in this movie. She essentially brainwashed a bunch of robots into heading off into space on ships that were probably not even built for long-distance space travel. So, Carlos was right; they'll probably be fried eventually. She tricked the board into staging a false flag to promote their objectively inferior biotech, even though it would be easy to hold them liable for the override. The damn cops spent, what, two hours looking at the update code and realized everyone was screwed. Hell, people might not even abandon machines once it gets out that this was all just a false flag to push smelly, crappy, and weird biopunk to the masses. Really, I think she should have just told Allison the truth while she was at the police station because it was basically over by that point, and she could've done more to get back at the board than anything.

            I don't know, I feel that's a bit far. The film was pretty good on the foreshadowing, e.g Aline getting tricked by the Augmented guy into finding the missing girl so Royjacker could eliminate her. Beryl being the secret mastermind is too thin.

          Yeah, it's pretty clear that as a product, the organics were inferior in every aspect compared to the robots. Remember Baryl's replacement? A freaky lump of flesh the size of a wall floating in a fish tank. Although, to be fair, they had been around for decades by that point. Still, it seems like there wasn't anything biopunk tech could do that machines hadn't already outpaced. And, [spoiler], anyone could have just looked at the update and found the override. They chose the most obvious and idiotic way to carry out their plans; it would've taken less than a day to pin the rebellion on them. [spoiler[[/spoiler]

            Yeah, nah, mate. Not with 300 billion lines of bullshit spaghetti code obfuscating the important bits.
            Look how modern webbrowsers weigh 100 mega for no reason whatsoever (other than Big Browser bullcrap making you the product on top of the ads). You willing to audit the 1 km long code sheet? Yeah, that's what I thought.

            Anyway, the thinking cutlets have one potential advantage over old ass mech tech - they could be self sustaining, in a sense when any and all minor damages to the structure, wear and whatnot could be self repaired, just like the flesh in real fleshy creatures does. Robot needs a technician and a tool.

              The cops figured it out after Aline told them about it, they just couldn't do anything before it was too late. After the cleanup happens I imagine it wouldn't be hard to trace it back to Royjacker's company.

                The entire plot kicked off because Royjacker's and the shareholders realized how screwed they actually were by promoting organics, so they remained at the mercy of the market. Additionally, with the authorities already onto them, the fact that older models like Carlos, who couldn't receive the update, were fine would raise flags within a week.

                How does "being told explicitly what's about to happen" constitute "figuring it out" in any capacity?

                I saw it in a theater today. Sorry, but I thought it was pretty weak.

                It came of as a knock-off of "Ghost in the Shell", with boringly photorealistic characters devoid of style.

                I also thought it had a misguided envisioning of robots. Whenever a robot got "jailbroke" they would jump around in hysteria just like someone who just broke out of a hypnotic spell, and that looked totally farcical. Let's face it: robots with full human emotions are inherently silly characters. If the show is a comedy or has comedic overtones like "Futurama" or "Robot Dreams", or if you want comic relief characters like "Star Wars" droids, then you can get away with fully emotive robots. Not here...

                And let's be honest. Aline Ruby was NOT the MC. Carlos Rivera was. He was the character in the middle of the central conflict of robots' place in society. He also had the personal conflict of trying to reconnect with his hostile family. And the movie ended with his decision to concede the world's rejection of him. Aline was just some barfly that was Carlos's sidekick.

                Whoa slow down with those hot takes, Roger Ebert!

                So. Do we think that they actually had a threesome with the golden fembot. Or did Aline get the cuck chair while being ignored by the professor who had a self declared distaste towards real women?
                Because sex was no doubt had. With or without Aline.

                No, Aline went straight to the toilet ruining the evening for everyone involved.

            The status quo hasn't even changed at the end of the movie. The board got what they wanted, the only people who knew are dead, and the system hasn't changed. The only cops left are the ones that answer to the same elites. And the only reason the MC died is because she opposed them.

              Usually in buddy cop films it has a good ending where a few good cops change the status quo by outing a few corrupt officers. Magnum Force, Zootopia, LA Confidential, and Sicario have those themes. It's why it's considered copaganda

              This movie is different where she doesn't change the status quo at all and the bad cops cover it up to protect the elite. It has a bad end but it feels more real. I was pleasantly surprised

                This is less of a political statement and more of an acknowledgement that if a society is too far gone then even good people who catch on won’t be able to do anything. Orwell’s 1984 did this too.

                It's not a central theme of the movie, but it is a blatant example of the movie having real-world politics in it. It's tiring to see anti-intellectual imbeciles who get mad at others for discussing the political themes in media. Most creatives insert political themes in the first place because they want to make their work meaningful to their audience after spending years on it.

                I get that it would be ridiculous to discuss the politics of something like Teletubbies, but this is a serious indie film aimed at adults. It's obviously intended to have a mature message in it like most of adult indie films do. Hot damn.

      It was good.
      The character writing and animation were perfect, the general visuals were also solid, but I didn't like the ending. I read complimentary reviews for its worldbuilding, but I felt like I could've been more immersed in the setting and its occupants.

      It also wasn't as violent or filled with shock-moments as I thought it would be. Compared to Jeremie Perin's other works I've seen. Not a bad thing though.
      It was primarily a character-driven scifi detective story.

    Alright, finished the film, my own review:

    Generally very good. Excellent animation, with lovely ligne claire style the French are so good at. Story was good too, though lacked real oomph, but that's not that great an issue. Didn't find anything to complain about at all which is nice. Good science fiction all around. If we get more in the style of this I'll be a happy man.

    Overall I give it an 8/10. Worth a watch.

          Just got out of the Theater. I was watching the GKids twitter closely for a few weeks, so I could get a seat day 1. Loved the sci-fi concepts, the character designs and animation. Everybody on Deck is probably my favorite studio now.

          The ending was kind of meh. The main character didn't really have an arc. And I don't think they showed enough of the world for me to care. Like it seems like if you come back as a backup and break the law, they can just destroy you full stop. I guess it's not killing you because your backup is stored on a warehouse somewhere?

          Gkids is only called Gkids because they distribute foreign animation, and most of that is for kids. The dub is great. Better than both dubs of Lastman in my opinion.

Though I’d really like a sequel which follows up on the fallout, it should be really easy to expose the whole over ride and i feel like bots are still very much fricked if they can’t find a planet to call home.

          It's a small trend in dark scifi stories that hope of finding alien life is false and humanity is all there is, so if we frick up that's it for the cosmos for at least the next couple billion years. Makes things just that bit bleaker.

It's revealed that the robots and backups who've been staged as a side show were always the ones who were really important and they depart to colonize the universe while humanity and its problems get left behind

            If Carlos, who was specifically stated to be an older model, can absolutely wipe the floor with those augmented soldiers and even that big-ass bio-tank monster, I genuinely wonder why they were pushing the biotech so much for military use. In terms of sheer capability, the bots beat flesh every time. The only advantage I can think of is that flesh can't be brainwashed with an update or just hacked like any other piece of tech.

          This is the telltale sign of a moron. A movie can just be a movie made for entertainment. Also the previous post said this movie had no real message then you said they all have one.

          And the status quo did change, the robots are all gone. The ultimate goal wasn't to topple a government, take down a crime syndicate, or lead to some kind of anti-corporative social reform. Aline and Carlo's mission was to uncover a plot and try to stop it, but the plot focused on changing the status quo of human society by completely gutting the integration of synthetic life in it and all that was related to that. They're the ones that tried stopping this from happening.

    I might be the only person here who saw this in an honest to God theater. Would have missed it if a friend hadn't invited me. My impressions were positive. Admittedly that's because I'm a sucker for serious Western animation, for near future space settings, and for Mars colonization in general. My father always said he liked watching movie "for the images", and I guess that's true for me as well with movies like this. Visually I found it a very relaxing movie to watch. Great design all around, and the animators had a good sense of weight. For instance, the scenes where Carlos moves at greater than human speed and he looks kind of goofy. It makes him look less human, but that's the point. He isn't human. And a human frame moving like that would look odd. I appreciate they did that, instead of an lean-forward anime pose most of us would probably expect.

    As for the story, I thought it was OK. It seems to me that it's more "French" to have a story where characters are mostly reacting to events outside of their own control. I've seen it more often in Franco-Belgian comics. I feel stories where the MC is special on some way, or has more agency than we could reasonably expect from a normal person, are more "American".

    And maybe the same goes for stories where the MC dies. I recently read a Franco-Belgian comic where society is completely fricked, the MC gets dicked along by powerful groups, the bad guys win, but only briefly because the MC fails in his attempt to save humanity and actually kills humanity save for one small group who get a fresh start, who are then heavily hinted to start repeating the entire process.

    Only saw in theater so haven't given it a more recent rewatch:
    Relatively classic story; Good setting, animation, climax; detective thriller part could be better, I expected something more out of the last sequence that could have put it above the genre’s tropes; 7/10

    >Probably could have had a bit more environmental/architectural visual identity.
    >Slightly bothered that I don’t know if the setting has FTL or not, Communicaitons within the solar system seem FTL, but then interstellar coms have light speed communication
    >The bio-technology is visually more interesting than the mechanical one (which sadly sometime is in 3DCG), love some of the effects of implants, the lab-bio-computers and the organic mecha
    >That many characters are dead person whose consciousness gets simulated and hosted on robots is a bit inexplicably treated as a (predictable) plot twist (despite being known in universe) , shame because it’s a good concept that deserved to be explained and explored more from the start

      No. I think he was just there to flesh out the settings and show how uncaring and fricked up the scholar system is. He also accidentaly help Aline connect the dots in a rather organic way. I'm more confused about the golden girl. Maybe the animators just really liked her design, or maybe she had a bigger role at some point.

        This design with the male voice was pretty attractive.

        NTA, but meh. Lastman is so vastly overrated. I seriously don't get the appeal. Admittedly, I'm talking about the comic, because I've never seen the show. And I probably never will, because the comic couldn't hold my interest. The fact that everyone is tugging it off so hard genuinely makes me feel like an alien.

        As a fan of the show who wasn't a fan of the comic, yes, it's good. The characters, the music, the art direction, it's a great experience.
        I didn't get to receive full enjoyment of Lastman S2, because going through the comic, it just wasn't anywhere near the same experience of satisfaction that I got with the show, that I ended up dropping it, and watched S2 after reading spoilers.

      I wonder how far they'll push organics assuming they eventually take off. I think the angle they're going for is that even if they are worse in every way, organics can still do what the robots can. So how long until you have them being used for everything bots were? How would a bio-engineered sex person like the robots be treated compared to their mechanical predecessors? You can't bullshit an excuse that they aren't alive anymore when they're flesh and blood, so what then? Honestly, it would be even more messed up if the cycle just repeats itself, except now you can't even use the excuse that they are just robots.

      This and the moment where Beryl make the robots cries and reach out to Carlos as a sign of mourning, are why I don't get the "this movie lacked an emotional impact at the end". It had but it's a dow-to-earth slow and agonizing realization instead of the big emotional explosion and send off we're accustomed to see in fictions.

      I saw it in a theater today. Sorry, but I thought it was pretty weak.

      It came of as a knock-off of "Ghost in the Shell", with boringly photorealistic characters devoid of style.

      I also thought it had a misguided envisioning of robots. Whenever a robot got "jailbroke" they would jump around in hysteria just like someone who just broke out of a hypnotic spell, and that looked totally farcical. Let's face it: robots with full human emotions are inherently silly characters. If the show is a comedy or has comedic overtones like "Futurama" or "Robot Dreams", or if you want comic relief characters like "Star Wars" droids, then you can get away with fully emotive robots. Not here...

      And let's be honest. Aline Ruby was NOT the MC. Carlos Rivera was. He was the character in the middle of the central conflict of robots' place in society. He also had the personal conflict of trying to reconnect with his hostile family. And the movie ended with his decision to concede the world's rejection of him. Aline was just some barfly that was Carlos's sidekick.

      >Aline Ruby was NOT the MC.
      Deuteragonist are a thing. Aline is more connected to Beryl, Roy or every human character involved in the plot, including Jun's copy, than he was. They were complementary. She's what drive the plot where Carlos would have given up when the case got closed and his following/supporting Aline until he can't.

      This might be the most moronic criticism I've seen of a movie. It's like saying "time travel is inherently absurd", then giving back to the future a bad review. If you reject the premise of a fiction, your input is pointless.

      Anon, photorealistic means exactly what it says. As realistic as a photograph. This film is not photorealistic. Maybe you're just confused because it's less stylized than the typical anime. Anyway, robots in movies take on human emotions because that's how humans make them. That's a reasonable take in any setting with robots, and in this setting in particular we can see there's such a demand for this particular kind of robot that people create robot replacements of dead people and treat them as near-equals. You're using the Vulcan interpretation of logic, which translates to efficiency. But people are emotional creatures, and they want emotional things. Maybe you're the monkey baby that would hug the wire mother, but all the others would hug the cloth mother.

          The show is not the comic. Essentially Jeremie Perin had a separate idea for the show so he changed a lot of lore/direction. It's a very, very loose prequel story to the books, but an entirely new story. It's pretty great. Like gravity falls for a mature audience and a boxing backdrop.

      True, but you can easily fix it. Simple as
      --speed=1.05
      --audio-pitch-correction=no
      (not perfect thanks to forced rounding but close enough).

      I can't believe I'm saying this, but having seen the film in theaters—with two different groups of friends, so twice!—the dub is genuinely better assuming you're a native English speaker. You may wish to hold out for that. The script is superbly edited ("Dear friends! Kindly frick yourselves") and every actor works well (with the sole and unfortunate exception of Jenapher Zheng as Jun, who has all the emotive power of a stoned turtle).

          Well, I live in a major metro area with 30–35 cinemas within striking distance, and Mars Express is playing in exactly four (and one has only a single daily showtime). Dragonkeeper—fricking Dragonkeeper!—plays on five times more screens here. I also didn't spot a single trailer for Mars Express, and I watch a lot of the right kind of movies in the theaters So it's not so much bad taste as it is GKIDS not prioritizing the theatrical release at all.

          Speaking of this film getting no press whatsoever, check out MWd4e_nQucs on YouTube—this no-name YouTuber got a fifteen-minute interview with Jérémie Périn, and as of the moment I post this it has thirty-one views (including mine). Life sucks.

            Yeah the lack of press is upsetting. There are like no reviews of the movie even. Is GKIDs betting on a streaming deal? (Probably)

    I think I liked the movie. But I still feel like the setting was probably under explored. In spite of how you got to see a good bit of it.

    I mean. The movie could just as well have taken place on a futuristic Earth and you would have barely have noticed a difference. For a movie called Mars Express that's hardly what I expected.
    Though I guess the title turned out to be a reference to that software update thing that was relevant at the end.

    I loved the animation and how characters emoted and all of that stuff though. Really good stuff.

      Flopped suggests that we thought it would do better than it has. I'm pretty sure Jeremie Perin knew exactly how well it would do, too.

      It's a foreign movie with no marketing except word of mouth. It's animated, but has very adult content and themes. The type of person that would go out to see this movie is extremely niche.

      The movie already made back its cost when it released in France with much more fanfare. The theatrical release here was obviously just a pleasantry. Which is also probably why they're releasing the Blu-ray in only a few weeks.

        I watched a guy walk in with two 6 or 7-year-old boys. I was going to tell him it was an adult movie before it started, but I wasn't sure how he would react, and I was kinda interested to see how long it would take this moron to leave with his kids.

        He stayed through the drinking, the gory intro scene, and the multiple f-bombs. Even though he looked kinda uneasy the whole time. It was like he knew he should leave, but couldn't bare the embarrassment or annoyance of his kids for leaving a movie he just paid 40 bucks for.

        The robot strip-club was too much, though. He got up and started pulling his kids out, exactly at this frame. He didn't come back, lol.

      Definitely not a condemnation of the quality of the film, just a total lack of awareness.

      That said, I am deeply depressed that Dragonkeeper actually did better per screen. Mind you, that film had at least a small marketing budget and it has the huge advantage of being based on a relatively popular book series, but it is also a truly dire bit of soulless pap. It is apparently not enough that American audiences aren't told about excellent foreign animation, they ARE told about trash foreign animation (by which standard they then judge the stuff they haven't been told to see).

    it didnt blew my mind, but its quite an impressive work. Its a momentum type of movie and the best of it its just there almost at the ending. More then half of it its just mostly atmosphere, conceptual exposition, eye candy, and not too much else. Its the type of thriller that while its coherent, the revelation its not mind-blowing. However i found quite beautiful that robots did found complete fraternity in the end, even if humans just wanted to get rid of them in their colonies.

    Its not a particularly deep movie ¿but who wouldn't wish that this could be the average adult animated movie instead of the same nihilistic teenagy cartoon crap you see in the west? Now lets way for season 3 of lastman.
