Synopsis

From the dawn of time, there have been warriors who protected the Goddess Athena. Once forces of evil appear, these warriors, called the Saints will present themselves.

A young woman, Saori Kido, learns about this force known as "Cosmos" and that she is the reincarnation of Athena, protector of love and peace on Earth. However, the Pope of the Sanctuary, who is in the charge of all the Saints, does not take kindly to Saori, and targets her for usurping the identity of Athena. An assassin is sent out to kill her. Fortunately, one of the Bronze Saints, Seiya, manages to protect her. But will Seiya be able to protect Saori through to the end in the gripping saga of Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary?

This movie is a re-imagination of basic Saint Seiya concepts. It uses the Zodiac Temples Arc as a base to its plot. So, I'll consider it as an original work for the most part in this review, as I don't like taking something as a bad thing just because it isn't the same as the old one. The problem is, Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary has a big flaw in its concept: you can't fit this Arc in a single movie, no matter how hard you try.

Lot of concepts are left open because the movie doesn't have time to explain them to you. While it read more

As a huge fan of the original series of Saint Seiya, I was really expecting something incredible before watching it. But now that I think about it, when was the last time Toei made something good?

But let's get to the point, this movie isn't really faithful to the original story.
As expected from a 90-minutes movie, it skips a lot of content (only 5 fights against the gold saints), and needs to adds some bullshit to tie it together.
The movie is really fast-paced and in the end the story doesn't make much sense.
So, this movie isn't for read more

I actually enjoyed the movie! It really helps if you know the story and characters of Saint Seiya, prior knowledge of Saint Seiya to around episode 50 and you'll be good. If you don't know anything about Saint Seiya, I think you can still enjoy it, though it may seem very fast-paced and unexplained. I really enjoyed it because the fights and armors are really EPIC and the 3D was cool as fuck! Great Soundtrack! This movie was dope. I especially liked when Seiya equips his armor and mask, the mask zips and closes like those mecha robots. The Gold Saints are all so cool read more

Saint Seiya : Legend of Sanctuary is a movie which related to the name with the same title, Saint Seiya.

Most of you must think that this movie will summarizes the anime series, but it wont' happen. This is the story which you will not find in the anime series though both of them has same characters.

The minus score of this movie just in the story. The art is well done, beautiful and so real. The voice actors work perfectly in making the dialogues so natural. The characters which same with the anime also great, in addition the elegant characters of the 12 Gold Saints read more
