Synopsis

In 2000 the Second Impact occurred, flooding the world and killing nearly half its population. Fifteen years later gigantic beings called Angels have appeared with the apparent intent of finding Lilith, the Second Angel, and thus initiating the Third Impact to finish the job. Lilith is concealed deep under the headquarters of the organization NERV, however, and NERV has developed the one weapon capable of stopping the Angels: biomechanical humanoids called Evangelions, giant mecha which synchronize with specially-chosen youths and can generate their own AT fields, a force field-like defense which makes the Angels mostly invulnerable to conventional weaponry. Shinji Ikari, 14-year-old son of NERV director Gendo Ikari, is one such youth, the so-called Third Child, and has been called to Tokyo-3 for exactly that purpose. Though reluctant to help a father who has never had a relationship with him and nearly overwhelmed by both the burden of responsibility placed on him and the horror of battling the Angels, Shinji assumes his expected role, battling a trio of Angels with the support of the entire NERV staff behind him and, in the last case, with the assistance of the mysterious First Child, Rei Ayanami, in her own Evangelion. Behind the scenes, his father and the even more secretive organization SEELE carry out ulterior motives which seem to have everything to do with the Angels' onslaught.

[NOTE: Mild SPOILERS in this review]

I just got back from seeing Evangelion 1.0 in theaters, and it was some experience. Though I didn't end up bringing the boom box playing a ripped CD of Prince's 1999 (and a bloody shame that is, too) it was still a real treat. The crowd was bigger than I had anticipated - I wondered if I might actually have the theater to myself, this being such a niche release and all, but it turns out I was dead wrong. While I wouldn't say every row was packed - it wasn't exactly a Transformers crowd (though one guy did have read more

I'm assuming that you've already watched the original EVA series before watching the movie before reading this. If not, spoilers abound.

So yes, this is basically a retelling of the original Evangelion in movie mode, and it's the first of 4 movies. This first movie covers the first six episodes of the original series, therefore not exactly innovative or anything shockingly interesting about the story. However, they did remove most of Shinji's self-pitying/emo-ing/bitching moments, so it's definitely one improvement from the original series.

The art is simply fabulous. The original series already had excellent artwork for its generation, and they've managed to improve it. Introduction of read more

Recommendations

Both have a similar post-apocalyptic world. The main character in both is always chased by his own past where he is the key to save the world or to destroy it. Both have massive destruction scenes annihilating entire cities. A difference between the two is that Trigun is not in the mecha genre.

Protagonists that are extremely self-conscious and weak that have to grow up and fight.
