      peter m This was a very enjoyable story. Good graphics, compelling story line, adventure and a reasonable end. The ending is possibly the weak spot of the movie, but the journey to get there is very enjoyable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The visuals are pretty but I've definitely saw better. Half of the time, I dont know what this movie is trying to be is it trying to be a fun run of the mill zombie movie? A philosophical scifi? How bout a steam punk? Also, too many open questions? Why the hell are these living people stabbing themselves with the thing that you use to reanimate the corpses? Are the corpses somehow like androids cause he sure used Friday as one. I just hoped that they laid out the ground rule more cause half of the time I dont know whats the point of everything. Or is it cause it was dubbed? Or am i too dumb? Haha Anyway, they really aimed high on this one. Kudos to that. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A world of the late 19th century involved with reanimating corpses for labor use. The animation is light, it is not very capturing but just bright, but some movements like the engines running are mesmerizing. The story looks a bit basic but of course it is another one of those that questions the life after death scenario. Some action scenes involved to keep the boredom aside, the closure adds some questions and of course there's a nice surprise at the end to all who knows a great popular literature. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member It took me a while too finish this because I kept falling asleep on it. Very nice animation but not a movie I would recommend. The story is confusing and will bore you at times. It tried but didn't have good execution. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member It's got beautiful animation and an interesting concept, but the plotting itself is terrible, the story is rubbish, the pacing slow, the characters weak. It's one of the worst anime movies I have come across. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a great movie with an inventive twist on the zombie genre. This flick is a good all-arounder that most people can appreciate. Fans of classic fiction, sci-fi, and zombies will have a field day. It's true that parts of the film, and particularly the ending, seem a bit rushed or under-developed however, it is satisfying enough not to taint the balance of the story.
