The movie completely twisted the main characters of the Escaflowne series. It is undeniable that changes had to be made to better suit the pace of a movie, yet, the characters must have been kept intact since they were such a strong asset of the story. With the characters dropped out of the story frame, the story itself seems to be inconstant and rather banal compared to the series: Folken's problem with the world starts in ambiguity and ends with totally confusing the audience. However, the animation of the movie is good and the sound/music excellent. It can therefore be a good movie to watch for someone who is not interested in the nit-picky details of the story and who hasn't seen Escaflowne before.
