After watching the final episodes of the original Evangelion series, I was really baffled. What happened? I understood that it all took place in Shinji's mind, but that's about it. Where was the ending? What really happened?

Those answers are provided by End of Evangelion. We get an alternate retelling of the two last episodes, outside Shinji's mind. From the awakening of Lilith to the result of the Instrumentality, we get to see it all. Of course, there's a lot of moments which are confusing (this is Evangelion, after all), but you kinda get a better understanding of everything that happened. Oh, and for the sake read more

It's going to be very hard to review this movie because its basically a work of art. The first half of the movie provides all the action and big events that Eva fans would want in the movie, but its really the second act that is the most important part. The second half is an astonishing piece of filmmaking that essentially challenges common filmmaking and boldly dares to ask questions most filmakers wouldn't dare going to.

Most of the following won't make sense if you have no knowledge of Eva. The entire second half of the movie takes place within Shinji's mind as the third impact read more

End of Evangelion is truly a masterpiece of an anime movie.

For me, like many other fans, the last two episodes of the anime series of NGE left me feeling a little frustrated and confused. They are fantastic and innovative as stand alone works but do not serve as a satisfying conclusion to what was an amazing anime. EoE, however, allows Anno to give his magnum opus the ending it truly deserves: beautifully animated, packed with action and philosophical to the core, this film does not disappoint.

Taking place in the same universe as the anime, EoE serves as a re-telling of events outside of Shinji's read more

If you were to look up "mindfuck" in the dictionary, the dictionary woud bitchslap you into a coma then proceed to surgically insert The End of Evangelion DVD straight into your brain.

Let's break this thing down by category:

Story - The twisted film conclusion to the Neon Genesis Evangelion series, meant to take the place of the final two episodes. Is the conclusion good? If you like a good mindfuck, nay, mindrape, then yes. It is the pinnacle of excellence in this regard, as it is quite possibly the most psychotic film you are ever likely to see, anime or otherwise.

Art - If you like the read more

Recommendations

Both films share enough in common. Both are deeply complex and have confusing plot lines that converge to a major climax to twist everything previously established by its predecessor, combined with dazzling visuals in an apocalyptic thriller.
In opposite to their respective TV versions the two concluding movies of Evangelion and Ideon are similar in theme as well as imagery and even in music. The Ideon movie clearly inspired the epic conclusion of Evangelion.
Two of the most mind-blowing endings ever created.
Both are beautiful and thought-provoking movies with lots of symbolic imagery.
This recommendation is more based on a gut feeling than anything else. The Adolescence of Utena and End of Eva are both retellings of their respective series and in both cases the intense imagery coupled with a complex and heavily symbolical atmosphere create an utterly surreal environment that deconstructs itself at every turn. They share the same epic quality even as they delve deep into the human psyche, despite the fact that the plot may seem to vary considerably. In these movies the role of the individual in the world and the very nature of what these two entities may be is what truly is at stake.
A man who would "change the world" at any cost.
