Synopsis

One year has passed since Guts left the Band of the Hawk and Griffith was imprisoned by the Kingdom of Midland for treason.

In the dead of night, at a camping site where they hide, the Band of the Hawk is attacked by Bakiraka assassins led by Silat. When all seems lost, Guts returns from his journey. "You destroyed everything." Crying that Griffith is nothing without Guts, Casca and Guts are joined together body and soul. Griffith is imprisoned in the oldest building in Wyndham Catle, the Tower of Rebirth. They discover that Griffith has been tortured, with the tendons of his legs and arms severed and his tongue removed. Seeing Guts and Casca pitying him, Griffith drags his body along the ground. At that moment, the Egg of the King Behelit that he had thought lost returns to his hand. The Behelit resonated with Griffith's despair and screams, causing a shockwave that creates a twisted dimension. The God Hand descends. A nightmare of magnificent violence erupts as a horde of apostles devour the Band of the Hawk. This is the birth of the fifth guardian and the beginning of an age where darkness overcomes all light.

Continuing from where the last movie leaves off, Guts leaves the Band of the Hawk and Griffith is captured. It is now a year later and Guts has returned to save Griffith who is now only beyond a mere shell of his former glory self. Anyway, I say this has been the best movie of the trilogy so far. In context to story, the beginning is very rushed and some scenes are taken out from the original manga and some are properly rearranged. But it doesn't really hurt the flow for the story in relation to the movie. It works in its own way, but read more

I will be evaluating all the movies as a whole. So this review will look at all three movies in the Golden age arc.

It all starts with a dream. Ambition, lust, greed, jealousy, hatred, and a huge ass sword. All critical components in the creation of Guts character. Forged on the battle field and bathed in blood, Guts is an ever evolving individual.

(Story and Character)
It is nearly impossible to separate both story and character. Both get a 10 from me, so i will combine both of them in the same discussion. The story is absolutely brilliant in bringing its read more

This final installment takes the turn for a much darker, disturbing tale indeed. This time, the CG animation fits in for much better for the hellish supernatural conclusion. Nightmarish imagery and a horrifying conclusion that will make even the toughest of men squeem and squirm while watching. The original series was criticized for it's open ended conclusion, and thankful to say we see a more definitive ending for this ova which justifies the remake of the series. Worth watching for fans of the tv series and manga, leaving it open to future installments in the Berserk Legacy. But do we really want more Berserk read more

Overview:

After how much I bashed the first 2 Berserk films, you might be surprised to learn that I actually really liked the 3rd one! I try not to be petty and hold grudges, where I will automatically attack every work in a certain franchise or by a certain author, simply because I didn't like previous entries. In the 3rd film covering the Eclipse portion of the Berserk storyline, they FINALLY get it right.

SPOILERS!

The first vast improvement is the pacing. The 3rd film covers an appropriate number of episodes, so the much beloved story and characters of Berserk don't need to be massively watered down read more

Recommendations

Both films mark the ending of their adapted story arcs which offer high quality animation, dispute among brothers/comrades, and a very tragic conclusion.
