The Facts are These:
Earlier Rei and Shinji fought against the attack of Angels against humanity. Now with the onslaught increasing and the Third Impact coming closer, two new Eva pilots Mari and Asuka appear. Fighting with the Evas, these four youths fight to save mankind.
This movie looks great and has amazing visuals. I reviewed Neon Genesis Evangelion on this blog, I now have a point of comparison. Mari was not in the original series, but she is a welcomed addition and I found everyone else to not be a polarising, especially Shinji is not a annoying. The movie has fantastic action and characters, with the design of the angels looking great and improving the original series.
Behind the Scenes:
Evangelion 2.22 is based on the 1995 anime Neon Genesis Evangelion written and directed by Hideaki Anno. Hideaki Anno wrought and directed the original series and sequels movies to the original series as well as Gunbuster. The movie was produced and co-distributed by Studio Khara, Hideaki’s own company and Studio Gainax which released the originals series. The movie was distributed in North America by Funimation.
Here is the English trailer for the series, for you to enjoy…
A Brief View of the World:
The world of Evangelion is our own world though the second impact made Tokyo-3 all that remains of Japan, with giant creature known as Angels attack the city trying to eradicate all of humankind. The city is fortified for attack prepared with underground bunkers and the base of NERV underneath to defend the city and guard an entity that can bring along a third impact.
This movie improves on the original series and the first movie. It expands on them and improves the story. It is interesting and better than the previous that made me excited to see the third movie.
This movie is rewatchable with a runtime of 108 minutes, this movie is worth the watch. Though take into consideration that you will have to watch the first movie to understand this movie. Though you do not have to watch the original series to understand this movie.
Code Geass – A great psychological series, that keeps you thinking and entertained.
Phantom ~ Requiem for the Phantom – For a great series that makes it have interesting characters and a storyline.
