Bloody thriller Posted by: from: Clarksville, TN on Genre: Action, Gore, Mature Length: 92 minutes "For three years, Guts believed his mission was to pursue Griffith's dream together with him. But in order to become Griffith's equal and truly be called his friend, Guts realizes he will have to leave the Band of the Hawk. At the same time, a bloody battle to capture the impenetrable Fortress of Doldrey from the Empire of Chuder is about to begin. The Band of the Hawk will face an army 30,000 strong!" If I had to pick just one word to describe this movie, it would have to be "Awesome!" "The Egg of the King" was my first taste of the Berserk universe and I really enjoyed it, but "The Battle for Doldrey" was even more incredible. The action is non-stop and very-well animated. I disliked parts of the 3D CG animation in the first movie because it looked clunky, but everything flowed very smoothly in Arc II. Have to say that I absolutely loved the action scenes. You always know that a pretty epic fight is brewing when Guts squares off with just a single opponent. At the same time, when it's a massive army, you're just waiting for the carnage that ensues. Don't watch if you can't stand some blood and gore. The MA, Mature, rating is justly deserved here and compared to some other animated titles, could almost draw a NC-17. There's no end to the blood and severed limbs. There's also a good deal of nudity with the later parts being pretty graphic in nature. I felt that the animation was even better for this movie compared to the first. There was no glitchy or clunky CG animation like part 1. At times it was hard to tell when the CG began or ended since it fused so well with the regular art. Blu-ray quality gives you every detail you could want as well. The musical score is a masterpiece, too. The majority of the tracks are orchestral, but the main theme "Aria" is equally grand and inspiring. Plenty of extras to go around on this disc. Viz is learning how to do previews besides their Neon Alley service, but they're all tied together. You can't select one individually. Stepping stones, I guess. There's a 15 minute interview with two of the Japanese cast members where they talk about what they loved working on the Berserk trilogy and even gave some hints about Arc III, The Advent. And there's also a live performance of "Aria". Great stuff and I can't wait for the final movie to be released state-side. May have to import a copy just to sate myself!
