So I just watched the live action attack on titan movie and honesty, I don’t understand all the hate fans give this? I mean yeah, a lot of things were changed from the anime, the storyline is a bit different, but that what happens when you try to squeeze the first few episodes of the anime into one hour and half long movie. The only thing that did upset me was they didn’t put eren’s mom death scene in it which is kind of the big reason eren wanted to join in fighting the titans in the first place. And of course all the japanese actors don’t look like the characters they are supposed to play from the anime at all and their acting is average at best, but hey that what you get for casting Japanese actors for characters that look more America or European. The characters are handled a bit differently, like mikasa is really bitter towards eren and blames him for things that were out of his control, but the movie makes up for that in later half when eren gets fatality wounded by a titan and mikasa is conflicted on whether to help him or continuing fighting the titans and when eren gets eaten by a titan, mikasa does try to get revenge on the titan who ate him. Levi is not in it and is replaced with some other guy, but to me that not a huge lose because I didn’t like that character much. The time period is a little screwy, for instance you got people fighting the titans with cannons, but yet people riding around in armored trucks and cars? My guess it is set in more modern times while the anime was set in more colonial times. The setting is bit confusing at first because the towns you see within the walls looks more like the towns you would see in any European country while the half demolished city the titans attack towards the end of the movie looks more like any part of a city in japan. But to be honest, I was even confused on where the anime took place at first. Really, the highlights for the movie were the titans, the action scenes and the special effects. The look of the titans was really impressive to me, they actually looked really terrifying and scary and eren’s titan form actually looked really badass. as for the special effects, while is not as great as US hollywood standards, still it was a better quality production I have seen to come out of Japanese movies. The action scenes were actually pretty good, it made people swinging around on wires between building and slashes at titan’s necks look cool instead of stupid, which were kind of my biggest fears with this movie. Not that the anime didn’t a really good job with that too, still the live action adaption was not that bad either. It’s basically a kaiju movie expect with giant people instead of giant monsters, which does not really bother me that much because I like those movies. So yeah, while I can agree it could have been done better with the actors, but really, I expected it because the acting for live action anime movies almost always sucks. And really I didn’t want to see the movie just for long drawn out monolog scenes with the characters talking, not that those scenes are not important too, I want to see some humans attacking on titans action and in that sense it delivers. So really it’s just a fun movie to watch and it not so horribly bad that is unable to watch. So for me I give it a 4 out of 5, but I do hope the second part of the movie is a lot better.
