Sakasama no Patema or otherwise known in English as Patema Inverted follows a simple yet endearing and thrilling tale that 2 teenagers of different worlds partake.
The story was certainly interesting and captivating. The contrasts between the two worlds and their differing yet converging societies allows for the audience to be absorbed into the world. The truth isn't white and black or wrong and right, instead it's more of how we view and value the world in Patema Inverted. The ending feels conclusive yet there just needed to be a bit more to make the story float(see what I did there?).
The only problem was that it was there but it just didn't feel perfect, although the displayed 'worlds' in Patema Inverse aren't as perfect as seen either.
The art helped illustrate the story and made the thrills a flying experiece, it almost felt as if one was flying too in this adventure. The scenery and contrasts between the two sides of the world gives resonates with you to provide a journey worth looking at. The problems that were in the art would be how sometimes there didn't feel like there were enough frames such as during slow-motion scenes which makes it feel jarring. Overall enjoyable to watch without a lot of ruined details.
This would probably be the worst part of this film or rather the part that isn't as fascinating although it does the job. There might be 3-4 tracks that were rememberable but it didn't feel too integrated with the movie.
Most of the characters displayed and explored into feel believable. Unfortunately the main villain didn't feel too believable and came off as a cheap villain while only maybe 4-5 other characters being given detail while the rest feel and look like each other,bland and irrelevant although it is arguable that those few select characters were all that was needed to carry the movie.
Certainly enjoyable as an endearing adventure that can be relatable to today's society of what is wrong/different to you and why you view it in such a way. Just remember, not always is as it seems to be with the movie being more than just a thrilling ride. You don't need to be highly intellectual to understand and have fun with the movie as it just goes with the flow taking you along for an unforgettable experience
It was certainly enjoyable and it just let me go on this thrilling ride. You will want to just let go and embark on a journey that is fun to watch and experience in the eyes of the two main protagonists. Although slightly dramatic at parts there is nothing that will make you crying or mad, no emotion that feels overdone.
