Only see it if you're a fan of the series
16 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Simply put: this movie and its release weren't a very good idea. It is impossible to rewrite the entire series and expect to be able to compress the epic of the original Eureka seven into just two hours and have it still possess the emotional depth that made the show so incredible. Of course, people (like myself) who have seen the entire series will understand and feel right at home and are likely the only people to have ever seen this movie. Everyone else will be completely lost. I was finally able to find a version of the movie with English subtitles, so now I understand it enough to write a better review than before.

In the movie, it starts with a young Renton (6 or 7, I think) who is friends with a young Eureka. One day Eureka is captured by what appears to be the military. 8 years later, Renton rescues Eureka who turns out to be a "highly classified subject" (it was strange to see the GEKKO as part of a contingency of the military, before deserting). Renton is soon dragged into a ship-wide scheme behind the GEKKO leaving the military and Eureka's rescue, involving with him the entire crew...

Normally, I said I would have preferred a continuation of the series, but that's likely impossible (...or is it?), hence the alternate reality behind the movie. What I disliked was not necessarily the plot, but the design. The enemy in the movie is basically the scub corals, now called Image which this time around is shown to be a malicious and massive collective bent on world domination instead of the docile scub corals before. The movie used the same designs, including the creepy coralian antibodies as god-knows-what-they-call-them, and the spherical clouds and the red sphere surrounded by spikes (the command cluster), along with all the same characters. However, some will find that the characters aren't the same (Holland being... sensitive?!?), but I suppose that could be expected given that the circumstances are completely different from the series. I hope this doesn't count as a spoiler, but Holland in a somewhat unsurprising way turns out to be the villain near the end. I also didn't like how Renton and Eureka's romance was sort of rushed, at least it felt that way. As was the plot, mostly at the end of the movie as all of the backstory is revealed.

Nevertheless, the movie was still pretty well-done in terms of animation despite the fact that it borrowed footage from the show. The mech fight scenes, both new and otherwise, still look amazing. Unfortunately, being a fan of the show will leave my review somewhat lopsided. People who read this will probably think: "Wait, he keeps ripping on the movie being a redo of the show yet he gave it eight stars. What gives?" The original show, that's what. If I hadn't ever seen the show before in my life and just decided to go to the movie with some friends of mine that like anime, my review would be less biased, but I have no choice but to give it credit for being based on such an amazing show. Speaking of the premiere, I don't believe that it should have been a one-night-only thing. They should have used the show's hype to get a large following so that a lot of people would go see it in theaters and then they would go tell their friends and over the course of a few weeks in the box office, the movie finally has the popularity it deserves. But then again, I don't know the full story. Maybe Bones didn't expect to make a huge profit from this or didn't expect for people to ever want to go see it again. I suppose we'll never know. One last thing, if you do decide to see it a word of warning: the sites advised to treat the movie as PG-13 even though it technically isn't rated. I would vouch that it's more of a soft R.
