Movie Info

Redline is a racing film created by studio Madhouse (Paprika, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars). Redline is about the biggest and most deadly racing tournament in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, including JP, a reckless dare-devil driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car - all the while, organized crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee - but will she prove his undoing, or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race? -- (C) Anchor Bay

The characters are dead on arrival and the techno soundtrack during the action sequences made us want to flee their funeral.

One of the most visually spectacular toons in recent years.

One of the most visually distinct and invigorating works of Japanese animation of its era.

It never lets up, but it's too creative and varied to ever feel exhausting.

"Redline" is a true anime gem, a film that every anime fan will enjoy, to say the least.

January 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Many may find it too hyper for its own good but "Redline" is fun from start to finish, a collection of wicked sight-gags wrapped around a 'rah-rah' feeling of righteousness.

Audience Reviews for Redline

Redline is one phenomenal ride! It far exceeded my expectations. It takes a simple concept and pushes it as far and as hard as it can (very appropriate for a racing movie). The animation is sensational with great style, imagination, and action (and a healthy dose of humor). The voice acting has epic attitude and heart. For fans of shonen sports anime, Redline more than delivers.

Oh, now THIS is a lot of fun. Think Wacky Racers turned up to 11 with a thumping soundtrack and some classy animation. Highly recommended!

it's based on a story from Katsuhito Ishii, so you know there won't be much to bite in that area. The animation is fantastic, and there's always something happening. A bit more story and this could have been even better, neverless, i still had fun watching it.
