Movie 1 is basically a retelling of the 1st 8-9 eps of season 1. They cut out a few scenes to condense it into a 2 hour movie. A small backstory was added to show the discovery of the Abyss, but it wasn't anything enlightening or worth mentioning. It doesn't omit major plots or scenes, but just a small recap of the episodes. To be honest, if you have season 1 there is not reason to watch the movie unless you just want to say you have watched it.

The movie has some new music that's as good as the score from the original series. If you haven't seen the original series, it's best to skip this recap film and watch the series instead. If you've seen the series and want a quick refresher, this recap film is more than ...
