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
During the mid-1990s, the Walt Disney Company bought the rights to produce this film. Tab Murphy wrote a highly-publicized script, which followed a ragtag crew of misfits (original characters, not from either Uchû senkan Yamato (1974) or its English counterpart Star Blazers (1979)) aboard the rebuilt USS battleship Arizona (which was sunk by the Japanese during the Pearl Harbor attack) on a mission to save Earth. Following Michael Eisner's departure from Disney, the project's rights reverted back to the Japanese. See more »
Attention, all remaining ships and battle groups. We will retreat. We no longer have a single ship that can prevail.
Captain Okita, this is Yukikaze, Captain Mamoru Kodai! I cannot obey your command to withdraw! I could never show my face to the friends I've lost!
Whether you agree with it or not, the withdrawal is my order, Kodai. We're all that's left to defend the Earth. A true man bears the humiliation of today for the sake of tomorrow.
I don't think so! Even if it's hopeless, we can still ...

I watched and loved the anime 'Starblazers' as a kid and now 30+ years on I find out they've made a live action version of the series that I knew absolutely nothing about! Well, I just HAD to watch it, not expecting anything great.... putting my hopes as high as a SciFy movie of the week or a campy Godzilla movie.
Boy was I surprised! The movie does leap right into things without the background development of the main 'spaceship' or real character introductions, but to enjoy the movie, especially if you have any familiarity with the source cartoon, it really didn't hinder it that much. When the 'Yamamoto' took off and the special effects were introduced, I almost crapped my pants! It looked FANTASTIC!! Exactly like my 9 year old mind pictured as if it were brought to life!
This movie is FAR from Shakespeare, but for an action space romp, popcorn munching entertainment vehicle... it sure impressed me silly... especially compared to the dreck coming out of Hollywood these days.
If you have fond memories of 'Starblazers', this is a MUST SEE... even if you never saw the cartoon, I'd highly recommend this as a decent time waster.... you could do far worse!
