Storyline

In 2199, five years after the start of the Gamilas attack on Earth, the planet has been ravaged by the aliens' radiation bombs and the remnants of humanity have fled underground. One day, former pilot Susumu Kodai discovers a capsule sent from the planet Iskandar that tells of a device that can remove the radiation from the Earth's surface. The United Nations of Space Administration rebuilds the battleship Yamato, with a new type of propulsion system - the wave motion engine. This enables her to make the long trip to Iskandar and back in hopes of saving the Earth. Within 73 days, the radiation will drive the rest of humanity to extinction. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In the Uchû senkan Yamato (1974) series, Yuki Mori was the only female crew member on the Yamato. Because of this, two of the male characters in Uchû senkan Yamato (1974) (Aihara and Doctor Sado) were revised to appear as female officers in this film. See more »

User Reviews

one of the best Sci-Fi movies lately
31 July 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

12 Million Dollars to produce Yamato? Money well spent, I'd say!

Even though it takes place in limited spaces what is there, looks good. Imagine making Yamato with a Transformers budget. That would give time to bring to life the lengthy battles from the original series. Especially the scene, fighting the subspacemarine would be interesting to see in a sequel.

What I liked about the movie is that it has characters. Somewhat cheesy and over-dramatizing characters at times, but that's Anime for you. There are some actual hero's voyages here involving more than cutting a distance between point a and b. There is the personal story of every character that makes this movie connect on more than an action level, in its best moments.

In its worst moments there are a lot of things I don't understand. Enemies there and then gone. A lot of stuff involving "why didn't they do it" scenarios on either the human or alien side. Plot vagueness might be a good way to call them without giving anything away.

The overall picture is recommendable to any Sci-Fi fan. It feels like they crammed a lot into it and don't always succeed with it. As has been said, the ending is kind of a drag, but it's alright. If I were to chose between this and Transformers, Yamato would make the race due to better story development, more interesting characters and a higher entertainment factor. I guess the Japanese acting is a bit stiff at times, but there is this sense of serenity about it, which makes it yet believable and enjoyable to the end.
