Actually I wouldn't write it off like that. Appleseed is one of the few pieces of anime that transcends the bulk of fluff anime. Sure it's anime, but it's on the scale of films like Ghost in the Shell, Perfect Blue, Honneamise, etc. If you like CG films like Pixar's works or Beowulf I'd check this out.

In fact I'd recommend taking a look at the trailer before passing this off as juats another anime....

I haven't seen the "Ex Machina" sequel, but the original Appleseed (by "original" I mean the 2004 film, not the 1988 adaptation) wasn't anything special by anime standards. The animation looks really cool and I enjoyed it, but the story wasn't particularly groundbreaking or deep. It isn't anywhere near the same league as the other titles you reference.
