Did You Know?

Griffith:Why do men like to shed blood, you asked. You are right in saying that it is one of the facets we, men, possess. However, it is but a tool to obtain what our heart desires and keep it from harm's way. I believe it to be a double-edged blade.
Charlotte:What your heart desires... a lover? A knight's honor?
Griffith:Both are important, aren't they? Fighting and dying for love and honor is what a knight desires above all else. But for men there exists something even more important than that. You know of it, I believe.

Get ready to be Berserk'ed!, 30 January 2013
Author: ymeer_maxi

After enjoying the episodic Anime series ages ago and left bitter with the cliff hanger ending, I was definitely looking forward to this movie.

"Berserk: Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King" (That's quite a long title isn't it?) tells the story about a warrior named Guts, who wields a large sword and is quite skilled in weapon based combat, he is hired as a mercenary by kingdoms in the battlefield and gets paid for the job well done and then he drifts away. Just after his recent victory he crosses paths with a mercenary group named "The Band Of The Hawk" led by a very charismatic leader named Griffith.

I won't dip into the story any further because it would rob you the enjoyment of watching the movie if you are new to the series. The story progresses in a very interesting manner and it has it's twists and turns that keep the story engaging and makes you question the motives as it builds up the bigger premise behind it, with that said the fight scenes in this movie are quite fantastic and the gore level has been used to the max, the animation is very crisp and sharp and is definitely eye candy.

Berserk: Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King gives you a start on the series and keeps things interesting throughout the movie, I barely noticed the time and soon it was all over and I was left with the feeling that I want to watch it more and how the story unfolds, it gives you a preview of the second arc towards the end of the movie. I would most definitely be looking forward to it. Give this one a chance, if you like it and let yourself immerse in it's world, you would definitely have a good time watching it.

My final verdict for this movie would be a very solid 7 out of 10.
