Not a bad movie, but not a really great one, but it is good. 100% CG and Cell Shaded CG characters. Has a very interesting ending to it though, almost Matrix quality.

That was pretty freakin' sweet. Very enjoyable watch for a student produced film. Also, the female robot things (Quints or something right?) kind of reminded me of the robots from the Appleseed CG movie. Was that just me?

It's not just you. I thought so too.

Animation and visual quality - Grade A Very nice indeed
Story - B clever, I liked the large spoon
Voice Acting - C I'm sorry, this was ADV? I guess they weren't paid enough to do more than read lines.

I suppose the V.A. score is also due in part to the rather pregnant lines such as the evil dude saying "just remember, it wasn't me that wasted this, but you" or somesuch.

While not anime related, with no involvement of ADV, go to daveschool.com and check out their Batman animation. I think that's loads better in general - much more entertaining.

IN case anyone's interested, the software that did this is called Lightwave 3D, and a tutorial for how they got the nice highlights in the eyes can be found here.
