The most live action versions of anime or manga usually don’t meet the expectations of the audience, but this cute movie is really enjoyable.
Imagine the Powerpuff Girls metting Takashi Miike, kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiii (or are The Powerpuff Girls a ripoff ?).
The third (3.33) Evangelion film is much more different than the previous ones, it gives a new world, a world that changed after the 3rd (not complete) impact. Technically and visually – stunning, but not every NGE quirk likes the way the plot took. Would you be much more happier if you would have gotten another replication of the TV show?
If “nothing makes sense and it scares you” and “you’re suffering because you cannot stand the changes” like Shinji Ikari did, then the film managed to convey Ikari’s state of mind (after he had woken up). Evangelion: 3.33 can (not) be Redone, I only hope there will be an extended version, where there will be space for elaborating on the other characters, where it won’t seem a bit shallow from time to time, a 140 – 160 min cut would be great.
The only thing I can complain about is the pace of the film, sometimes it is just to fast. Speeding up took away a huge part of the Evangelion-watching-experience that I got used to. The proportions between action/fight scenes and “static” moments seem to be imbalanced somehow.
You can not Redo, but you can Recut.
