In search of a mystical ingredient known as Sky Fish, Meliodas and Hawk stumble upon a spring that suddenly transports them to the Sky Temple: a breathtaking land above the clouds, inhabited by beings called Celestials. Meliodas, however, looks strikingly similar to a local criminal called Solaad, and is imprisoned and shunned as a result. Meanwhile, the kingdom of the Sky Temple prepares to defend the Great Oshiro's seal—said to harbour a three thousand-year-old evil—from the malevolent Six Knights of Black, a group of demons who seek to destroy the seal. However, the Demon Clan is successfully unleashed and terrorizes the land, prompting the remaining Seven Deadly Sins and the Celestials to fight against their wicked foes.

The battle progresses well, until one of the Six Knights awakens an "Indura of Retribution," an uncontrollable beast from the Demon Realm. With its overwhelming strength and sinister power, the Seven Deadly Sins and Celestial beings must now work together to defeat the creature that threatens their very existence.

Note: I had to watch the movie German-dubbed in the cinema after watching both seasons with German subs, so I wasn't able to fully enjoy the movie because the dub was not really nice in my opinion...

Story (6/10)
The movie looks to have been done so that also watchers who didn't watch the anime could enjoy it, but that makes it quite "flat" story-wise. There is nothing new and special for all who watched the two seasons, and there's no additional thrill or any unforeseeable plot twist. That's understandable but sad.

The story would definitely not fit for an OVA, but this movie has quite many read more

This is not a positive review so if you are a diehard fan for whatever reason don't hate me for this. It's just my impressions.

One of the most boring films I've ever seen. It has nothing new to offer really, besides a Sky Island from One Piece.

Seriously though, I've you've seen either of the seasons you already know the plot for this one. There are guys from Demon Clan sealed on a Sky Island. Turns out the seal is somehow undone, it has never been addressed how. And the main characters just defeat the evil guys. There are 6 demons who are supposed to be read more

To be honest, if I was not a fan of Nanatsu no Taizai franchise, then I wouldn’t even have possibly given this movie a try. As excited I was to watch it, deep down I knew something major is going to happen that’s going to excite me a lot. While the excitement did manage to stay at the same level, many disappointments also appeared.

Story [7/10]

The synopsis isn’t currently updated by MAL Rewrite but when it’ll be done, it’ll probably not sound much interesting as the story isn’t that fascinating. Surely, some interesting facts and major revelations were done but the impact that a movie can read more

As a fan of the Seven Deadly Sins (manga/anime), I had to watch this movie and the 6-month wait was worth it!

Timeline/Plot = 6/10
The movie takes place in between the 2nd season. It's after Meliodas has regained his powers but before Gloxinias and Dolores's competition. This is because, well, Meliodas is very strong and Diane still has her pretty weak golems. The timeline is definitely not made clear in the movie which made me pause the movie, look it up on Google to no avail and made me feel a bit confused in trying to figure it out during 30 to 45 minutes of read more
