We caught the world premiere of Attack on Titan Live Action Movie (Part 1 – Part two is slated for release in September) at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. First of all, our opinion of the movie:
IT IS AMAAAAAZING! Fans of the anime series and manga will not be disappointed, and audiences who have never heard of Attack on Titan before and are looking for an incredibly unique and entertaining story will also appreciate it. A word of caution…this has elements of both science fiction AND horror. The Titans depicted are truly insane looking and disturbing, and they eat gorily eat people with guts and blood flying everywhere throughout the movie. There is nothing like this mythology in American cinema…it is unbelievable to watch on a big screen.
Kudos to the director for not softening or commercializing things to appeal to American audiences and to the lead actors for honoring the original manga/anime characters.
