Decent retelling
10 August 2020 | by briancham1994See all my reviews

This film is a retelling of some episodes from the original Neon Genesis Evangelion series. It summarises the events so as to cut out any unnecessary fluff and goes for a tighter flow. It also adds and changes some elements. I don't agree with all of the choices, especially the new character Mari Makinami who is not needed and steals the show too much. However, it is still pretty good overall.
