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

NOTE: This review encompasses the entirety of the Golden Age Arc trilogy of films.

***

Often hailed as one of, if not THE best mangas of all time, Berserk has earned itself a spot on many an avid manga reader's "must read" lists and for good reason as it's the quintessential dark fantasy manga and the ultimate story of friendship, tragedy, and the pursuit of self-destructive vengeance. This may very well be true in the manga, but Berserk's animated history isn't much to speak of. The TV series produced by Oriental Light & Magic in 1997 is hailed as a classic by many but its piss-poor animation read more

The Eclipse has begun. These words are enough to put any Berserk fan into a frenzy, and the third and final film in the Berserk movie trilogy attempts to bring one of the most infamous anime moments in history to the big screen.

Is it as powerful as the manga and show? Or does it fail miserably in it's intentions?

Story: 10/10

The first thing you gotta know about The Advent is it's the first time major material outside of the main TV show has been animated, and that alone gives it an edge over the other films. While the other films may have done content we have 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
