In a post-apocalyptic world, the last remaining human settlement in Japan is the heavily fortified city of Tokyo-3. Fourteen-year-old Shinji Ikari is brought to the headquarters of NERV, an underground organization lead by his estranged father, Gendou. He requests that Shinji become a pilot of an "Evangelion," a colossal android built to fight against monstrous and destructive alien creatures known as "Angels" that wreak havoc on the planet and threaten the survival of the remaining human race.

Although initially reluctant, Shinji is swayed by the idea of reconciling with his father, and agrees to aid in mankind's perilous endeavor against its alien threat, as the pilot of Evangelion Unit-01. Thrust into the midst of a dangerous battlefield, Shinji must find the necessary courage and resolve to face against the Angels' incursions before it is too late.

"Beautiful World" by Utada Hikaru

The new series, called Rebuild of Evangelion, includes new characters, robots, and a completely new ending.

The movie "Evangelion 1" has some imperfections that may disappoint some viewers. Firstly, the story isn't new and is just a condensed version of the first six episodes of the original series. Unfortunately, Shinji Ikari's character is quite whiny and difficult to take seriously. However, the animation has improved significantly since the original series, and the lighting has been fixed in the updated version.

On the positive side, the music in the movie is fantastic, and the composer, Shiro Sagisu, deserves credit for it. The robot's screaming is also worth mentioning, ...

Mixed Feelings
Neon Genesis Evangelion is my favorite anime of all time. This film, for most of it's run time, is the first 6 episodes of the original NGE, but worse.Most of the shots in the movie are taken 1:1 from the original with different background details and a more toned down color palette. This is until the last 20 minutes or so when there is a major plot divergence and film starts actually doing it's own thing visually. During this final portion the film becomes Evangelion, but different. I just wish this whole movie was Evangelion but different, rather than Evangelion but worse.

As far as shot-for-shot retellings of the first six episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion go, Rebuild 1.0 is good. The updates to animation look nice, the few lines of dialogue/scenes added to the story are fine, the pacing is well done, and everything comes together in a way to make a fine, singular movie. Rebuild also does some great stuff! Ramiel looks amazing, the finale comes together to do justice to one of the best scenes in EVA as a franchise(Is any retelling of EVA complete without Rei's smile?), and the fact they made it come together to be its own movie is admirable.

But ...
