I'm really disappointed!
28 March 2007 | by (Monterrey, Mexico) – See all my reviews

I'm a Saint Seiya (or as we know the series in Mexico "Knights of the Zodiac") fan, but this has gone too far.

I have yet to see the first Sain Seiya feature film (Saint Seiya Gekijoban, or The Legend of the Golden Apple, 1987), but regarding this movie, I hate to say that it's just plain old more of the same stuff! This movie is not only really, really short: 45 minutes (about the length of just two episodes of the series), but it also clearly non-canonical.

Anything that happens in this movie, although it includes the characters of Saori, Seiya, Shiryu, Hyoga, Shun & Ikki, has nothing to do with the series's continuity.

Besides those two diminishing factors (its lack of real length and association with the canon), the base for the saints' conflict with the Kingdom of Asegard (sic) is barely something worth of suspense.

There are no strong supporting characters, and the battles are short (really short) and meaningless. There's no reason behind the evil portrayed here.

Now, I know how the Saint Seiya universe works, but this has gone too far. I REALLY hope the other Saint Seiya movie productions are better than this.

Almost 20 years later, and not even nostalgia can save it from obligatory oblivion.
