NETFLIX BLAME!

Watched Blame last night, visually it wasn't bad, the color pallet and character design reminded me of Knights of Sidonia (same production studio), but thankfully without the creepy elastic alien phallic creature! I really wasn't able to get emotionally vested in any of the characters, which apparently is true to the Manga....characters survive just as long in BLAME as in Game of Thrones and TWD. The environment in BLAME is supposed to instill a sense of dread, hopelessness and endlessness but I never felt that in this movie. Also the sound track didn't do anything for me either in fact I preferred the sound track from the ONA (below).
All in all the NETFLIX BLAME! movie by Polygon has the same sterile, muted visual style like Knights of Sedonia, with an underwhelming soundtrack and characters that you never get enough time or info to get invested in.... 

Blame felt like a hollow blend of The Matrix and Terminator 2. Visually it's good but it just felt longer than necessary.
