'Blame!' - Movie Review

A Japanese Anime movie distributed by Netflix, "Blame!" is based on a manga. It's a far future dystopia, in which the humans can no longer control their planet-spanning city and are hunted by constructs of the city as illegal squatters. Our group encounters a mysterious and ludicrously taciturn stranger called Killy who is super-human and trying to return control of the city to humans. They help him for a while.

It's an adventure story aimed at tweens. The artwork is quite attractive, despite it being entirely in an abandoned city. The dialogue is weak, and the story feels like it's one step of progress on a trip that's going to take 100 steps - it makes some people's lives better, but doesn't resolve the primary question of control of the city.
