Appleseed: Ex Machina is light years better than the previous Appleseed film (the 2004 CG effort, not the ancient OVA from the 80's) in every conceivable way. The art direction, the animation, the music, the script, the storyline – it's all a vast improvement. That isn't enough to save it from being little more than a lightweight action pic with some pretty visuals, though.
