I love a good bit of Japanses film and Anime. This one has great animation, direction and style which looks excellent and reminds us of why animation should not be overlooked as a medium for film. I really enjoyed the setup of the story and the direction. Using angles not normally associated with animation it created a nice contemporary feel that appealed to a more mature audience. However around the 1.30 point of a 2.40 hour movie I had to turn off, my interest and care for the characters had waned at an alarming gradient, I unfortunately found the clichés and a slowly developing and rather unexciting plot not enough to keep watching, a rarity for me.
I couldn't recommend it as a stand alone Anime movie it could quite put you off the genre. This is really one for the fans of the series (which I have never seen).
