The Band of the Hawk have risen through the ranks of Midland's military and have earned great respect along with plenty of jealous scorn. Guts continues to serve Griffith loyally fulfilling his dream yet at the same time experiences a certain uneasiness. He soldiers on for his comrades, and the stakes begin to rise when the enemy make one final stand at their impenetrable fortress. -summary

This new Berserk remake remains somewhat of a chore to get through and it's not completely due to its very own merit. In fact, Berserk has moments of being quite good as it's jam-packed with some explosive action, above average read more

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.

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
