Saw it in a bar in California, in or around 2009.

It looked like it was shot similarly to "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow", i.e. live action actors on a green-screen and CGI background.

The color palette very heavy on the red, overall a grainy look.

Large Mechs in a war-type scenario, airships, lots of missiles at the end.

The story seemed anti-capitalist, but it was not in English, and there were no subtitles.

Seemed like it may have been Chinese, Japanese, or Russian...though I am not sure.

    Is there more information you can remember about the mechs, such as their size, whether they could fly or if they had one or many people inside? – Crow T Robot Jul 6 '14 at 3:13

    No, but congratulations, you should add an answer with the name and maybe a brief summary of the film so others can find it easily in the future. – Crow T Robot Jul 6 '14 at 3:21

The movie is called Casshern. http://imdb.com/title/tt0405821/?ref_=nv_sr_1

From Wikipedia: "Tetsuya Azuma (東鉄也 Azuma Tetsuya?), also known as Casshern, is an android with a human consciousness aka a neoroider (人造人間 Jinzō Ningen?, lit. "artificial human"). Tetsuya turned himself into an android for the purpose of hunting down and destroying robots that have taken over the world."
