The Seven Deadly Sins travel to a remote land in search of the phantom ingredient "sky fish." Meliodas and Hawk end up at a "Sky Palace" that exists above the clouds, where all the residents have wings. Meliodas is mistaken for a boy who committed a crime and is thrown in prison. Meanwhile, the residents are preparing a ceremony for defense against a ferocious beast that awakens once every 3,000 years. But the Six Knights of Black, a Demon Clan army, arrives and removes the seal on the beast in order to threaten the lives of the residents of Sky Palace. Meliodas and his allies meet the Six Knights of Black in battle.
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...
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
lengths. Mostly in the first half, nothing really happens and only the characters and the setting get explained a bit. The second half was nice as soon as the fights started. The storyline is a little bit random, involving "Sky Winged ones" and a demon fight almost not related to the TV series at all.
Also, it's not clear at which point of the anime story the movie is placed. It has to be at least after the middle of season 2 because of the involvement of all sins, but the overall setting was too peaceful to be set somewhen during season 2?
The same as in the anime series. Quite many additional landscape shots that were visually stunning but unnecessary storywise, but that's fine for a cinema movie.
Was also the same as in the anime series, I liked it very much. The ending song was also quite good.
The characters are the same main characters from the anime. There is no progress in characterization, and just some small explanations of the already known abilities of the Seven Deadly Sins. The only additional thing we get is a small hint at Elizabeth's abilities and strength (which has also somehow been teasered at the end of season 2 already). And a new special move for defeating enemies. That's okay, but nothing more.
The movie was fun, Hawk did very interesting and funny things and the fights were nice, too. Overall, the humor was the best thing of the movie aside from the visuals. The dialogues seemed fine as far as I could tell because of the problems I had with the dubbing. Sadly there was no additional fanservice.
I am not sure why this movie was made. For newbies to Seven Deadly Sins it gives more questions than answers (maybe they want to lure them into watching the rest?), and for all who have seen both seasons there is nothing new. It's fun, and the story was okay, nothing more. I gave the movie a 6,5/10 overall, which is a 7/10 here on MAL. (for better comparison: I gave season 1 a 9,5/10 and season 2 an 8,5/10)
If you like Seven Deadly Sins, you can watch the movie, but it's not really necessary. If you haven't seen the anime series yet, better watch it first.
Nanatsu no Taizai AKA The Seven Deadly Sins is, in my opinion, one of the best action and fantasy series of the present day, with great characters, animation, music and narrative. So you can imagine how excited I was to watch this movie. Unfortunately, apart from having fantastic animation, everything else is generic, unoriginal, cliched and sometimes pretty stupid and straight up bad.
Narrative: 4/10 (Bad)
The movie's biggest problem: uninspired and mediocre
Characters: 6/10 (fine)
Apart from the seven deadly sins themselves, who were also quite boring in this movie, every character is bland and forgettable.
Visuals: 9.5/10 (great)
without a doubt the movie's strongest aspect with fluid and detailed
animation, shown especially in the fight scenes.
Sound: 7/10 (Enjoyable)
not much to say. It has an alright soundtrack.
Enjoyment: 5/10 (mediocre)
personally, didn't enjoy anything other than the fights.
If you don't watch this movie you won't lose much.
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
as strong as the 10 Commandments and yet they are just fodder. SDS don't face a single challenge, just repeat the same attacks we've seen over and over again to overpower the demons. There is no point really to this film.
Animation is absolutely not better at all than the anime. Looks identical, they didn't bother increasing their budget. Probably a good move though since the fans are going to watch anyway.
The same overused soundtracks. There is only one decent and yet it still fails to hype up the fights.
For the characters, hmmm... we don't even get an explanation why the two new side characters look exactly like Meliodas and Elizabeth. Diane is still the same whining and annoying side bitch of Meliodas. Not going to talk about Elizabeth since she is even more useless than Sakura. Literally the only hype (to some extent) character is Escanor, but even he didn't do anything. Hawk however continues to be my favorite one from the entire show, despite being a purely comedy relief character in a semi-serious show.
The same pointless and annoying fanservise. It's just so stupid. I'm not the type of guy who is trashing on a show due to a few ecchi scenes but in this show it's just... wtf. So baseless.
As you've probably understood, I didn't enjoy the film myself, but it doesn't mean you won't either. Give it a shot, just don't expect anything of value.
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.
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
give wasn’t much. The plot was written in a fast-pace due to which powerful fights had to cut short and end quickly. The story shows each Sin to be way powerful than they actually are making this look like One Punch Series where one just can’t be defeatable. Well, that’s that.
But I have to say, this movie coming out is quite a head start for all our excitements to pile up till when Season 3 will be announced. Thankful to a certain someone, we finally uncover the mystery of its existence and why it is so powerful. But after watching this movie, we might come to ask ourselves, “Was it actually necessary for this movie to be created just to show that?”. Well, maybe yes, maybe no. But still, I totally recommend watching this movie after you have completed season 2 because, without this story, we can easily rest assure and continue with Season 3.
A1-Pictures surely knows its business. The character art-style, monsters, backgrounds and moreover the Island itself is drawn in such a way that looks really amazing. If this is the case, then why I am giving it 9 out of 10? This is because of the main antagonist’s character sketch. While he sure was powerful enough to cause much damage, he looked exactly like Ban.
It was also a bit hilarious to see him fight with Ban at the end and it looked like twins are fighting with each other. Nonetheless, the rest was amazing.
Not really sure what I should say here but I guess due to its amazing soundtrack, I can give it a 7 out of 10. The Sound has good pacing and is well made for each moment in the movie.
This movie has doppelgangers of Meliodas and Elizabeth making it look like they are actually important to the story when they are not so much. It looks a bit idiotic to add them here but I guess the author tried to go with something easy. Trust me, the new characters introduced here aren’t that important at all and seem like a complete joke in front of the seven deadly sins.
This is The Seven Deadly Sins Movie so of course, I get quite tremendous enjoyment from it. Each battle (even if it was short) was entertaining.
This movie is totally extended, fights are kept to a minimum, strongest beasts are played like toys but still, the stretched plot gives us at least an excitement to keep hype for the Season 3. That’s all.
