The story continues in this second installment of the Berserk movie trilogy. Does it continue the stream of mediocrity from the first film? Or did they improve on their missteps?

Story: 7/10

The second film, titled The Battle for Doldrey, is about just that, mainly focusing on the massive fight for Doldrey, one of the biggest fights of the series. As such, along with a much better runtime of 95 minutes, the film feels much more streamlined, and finally has a focus.

Trimming down where it needs to and making the film into more of a 3 act structure, this Berserk film feels more like the film we read more

First episode sets things up nicely for part 2 of this ova. It opens with the legendary 100 man vs guts battle in a true gorefest. Disturbingly violent and brutal, but lacks the proper set up to build up Guts to that point. Making the battle anti-climatic when compared to the TV series in which they took time to show Guts progression as a warrior and his character. His relationship and romance seems natural but not as impactful, the viewer doesn't care for the characters despite the long running time of these ova's. Episode 2 has fantastic battle scenes but lacks the humanity of the read more

The second movie of the Berserk Golden Age series. Well, what to say? Actually the film was quite good if you ask me. This is coming from someone who read the manga (up to chapter 337 anyways, for it has yet to be updated), and have seen the anime.. For long time fans of Berserk, the movie will be disappointing only in terms of the blatant overuse of CG. But in the sound and art (hand-drawn scenes) department it will certainly be a guaranteed feast for the eyes and ears. Especially for someone who has been craving for more of Berserk (okay, maybe I'm being read more

The story continues where the last movie leaves off. The main focus is Guts reflecting on what Griffith defines an equal and true friend and the decision that Guts comes to and the effects it has on the team. Of course by revealing this, if you have any familiarity with the manga and/or the 1997 series, you have an idea of where it starts and where it ends. However, there will be 3 cameos from manga exclusive characters in this movie which is quite a treat.

The animation feels more uneven in this than it does in the last movie. This is more prevelant in slow read more
