In the scene where Shinji is with Kaji in the garden of watermelons, Shinji and Kaji don't keep the same position, every camera angle place them in different positions. In the first shots, there is a small dirt path between the two characters, but in subsequent shots, there is no path. And in the same scene, Kaji has dirt stains on his face, which change position between shots. See more »

[during start-up, in reverse]
Freedom is an illusion. All you will lose is the emotion of pride. To be dominated by me is not as bad for human pride as to be dominated by others of your species.

First let me state that I was not a fan of the Neo Genisis Evangelion series. I found the main character's constant self pitying weak and annoying. Hence I couldn't connect with the character which of course affected the story and the philosophy behind the story. Out of boredom I decided to watch the rebuilds 1.0 and 2.0 (this a review for both). The rebuilds basically takes story archs from the series to make into a new movie with some new graphics, new characters and new story arch. I found the new graphics and the new story arch very interesting as its faster pace and of course with new graphics. It also left out a lot of Shinji's self pitying patheticness which allowed me to actually connect with the story instead of trying not to throw up with disgust. The battle scenes are superb. I cant wait for rebuild 3.0 and 4.0
