    Attack on Titan live action

    I was concerned about the quality of the live action but went on a limb and made a blind purchase of the Part 1 and I was pleased with the quality of the film. When I first heard this was in the works I was worried they couldn't pull off converting the intense animated show to a live action movie but it works. Some sequences get a bit of motion blur, losing their crisp look, and a couple larger scaled fights seem to lose that giant scaled up size feel (where portortionally larger things move a little slower) so the effect took me out of the scene a bit. That might be my only issue with the movie. Some plot lines were cut, along with a character I liked but then again this was only the first part. The quality of the first part made picking up part two an easy choice.

    I had heard a lot about these titans and being a little different i knew i had to see it one day. I saw the Blu ray to my great surprise on the shelf in Best Buy before Christmas and I had to grab it., Here to fore I could only find this div on line and it was way more expensive so I was very happy that Best Buy had a decent Anime selection. The Film it self is very good, but you need to not try and compare it to the animate series and be prepared for both some excessively long chatting sections and a change of some of the story...........still the movie has some good effects and marvelously strange moments that make it a worth while watch.

    First, let me say that I've never seen the anime, and that my opinion is based solely on my movie experience... and I enjoyed the movie. But I wasn't fond of some of the acting... and this is from someone who has been a fan and collector of Asian Cinema for MANY years. Some of the actors were really good, others simply overacted. That aside... the giants looked amazing and were ferocious, which is the focal point, obviously. And the F/X were fantastic. The Blu-ray itself is very nice. The slipcover is partly embossed and quite beautiful, and the discs have very nice artwork.

    If you are a fan of the anime series 'Attack On Titan', then you need to clear that from your mind, and remember that this is a movie, not the anime series. I've never read the manga, so I don't know if this movie was based on that or not, but I can tell you that certain things that play out, are slightly different in this movie. Now, this is only the first half of the movie, from what I gather. The other half should be out around Xmas time. Even though its different, I have to know what's gonna happen next, what else they're gonna change, and how it all ends.

    I am not very familiar with the anime that this movie is based on, but I had seen the trailer for this live action adaptation and was intrigued enough to pick up both parts on blu-ray. I'm a big fan of Japanese kaiju movies like Godzilla, so these movies appeal to me on that level. It should be noted that unlike many kaiju movies, these are not kid friendly due to the imagery and brutal violence and gore. Overall, I enjoyed these movies and would recommend them to fans of the genre.

    Attack on Titan part one

    The live action DVD blue ray movie of Attack on Titan part one is a very excellent movie to watch if you are a big anime fan. The movie is exactly just like the tv series. It's Japanese actors are dubbed into English by the American voice cast from the show on Attack on Titan. Directors of Attack on Titan did a excellent job doing trick visual effects for making the actors looking exactly like giants. There is some characters in the movie that are very funny.

    After watching about 20 episodes of the anime Attack on Titan, I heard about the live action movie. So when it was released I got this movie, it is loosely based on the anime, understandably, too much to cram into a movie. So don't expect an exact remake. Overall looks great and seems to cover episodes 1 - 8 of the cartoon. One thing I did really like was the English voice actors were the same for the anime as the movie, really brought things together for me.

    I recommend this live action film (part 1 of 2) mainly to fans of the hugely popular anime series. One can tell that the hokey script is more geared towards an Asian audience, the production values just aren't up to par with what many of us expect from Western studios. I did enjoy the epic vision the epic vision of the movie and fans of giant monster movies should definitely find something despite the cheesy special efx. I give it 3-1/2 stars
