Overview

Veteran action filmmaker John Woo produces this sequel to the 2004 film Appleseed. Partners both at home and on the battlefield, Deunan, a young but skillful warrior, and Briareos, an experienced cyborg soldier, protect the utopian city of Olympus, where the last of humanity dwells in peace following a war that's killed off the rest of the world's population. As members of the elite police squad E.S.W.A.T., they take their orders from Gaia, an artificial intelligence that governs the city through the use of biologically engineered humanoids called Bioroids. Trouble stirs when Gaia engineers a new member for E.S.W.A.T. based on Briareos' DNA. The new team member, Tereus, looks and acts eerily like the old Briaros, before so much of his body was replaced with robotics following the war. Even more disconcerting, Tereus seems to have the same feelings as Briareos for Deunan! ~ Cammila Collar

    one of my favs in my dvd collection

    they went a long way from the first appleseed. <BR/>the graphics are more realistic, fanstatic storyline, more depth in the characters, and some kick-@#% fight scenes.<BR/><BR/>i loved the first movie and i love this one too, and above all else they should continue on with another movie, that or make it into a tv series.<BR/><BR/>-Surashu Nian-
