Did You Know?


The shortest Rebuild of Evangelion film to date, running for 96 minutes while the first and second runs for 101 minutes and 112 minutes. Ironically, months before the film released in theaters, a false news stated that the film will run for 120 minutes. See more »


During the scene when Rei attacks Wunder, there is a close up shot of Shinji screaming, during the close up we didn't see his collar attached to his neck, however, after a flash of explosion, the collar magically appears.

However, this mistake only appears in the home video version. See more »

Crazy Credits

Unlike the previous two movies, where the original Japanese title cards showed in the beginning or after the prologue, in 3.0/Q the title card shows up when the film runs 30 minutes of its duration.

However, the English title card still shows up at the halfway point of the movie. See more »

Not what it should be
6 May 2013 | by nik_kasSee all my reviews

I haven't checked who wrote Evangelion 3.0 but it's worlds apart compared to the first 2 movies with countless discrepancies throughout the script. In the 2 first movies the main character (Shinji) was infatuated with Misato and then fell in love with Ayanami. At the same time Misato and Ayanami also had feelings for Shinji. So when the 3 movie starts and Misato finally sees Shinji after 14 years she is stone cold something which continues for the first half of the movie. Now i know that Shinji and EVA where responsive for the near-third impact so some people got mad at him but at the end of the day Shinji didn't wish for that nor did he do something for that to happen, it just did so behaving in such an irrational way towards him is not something i would expect. Also for most of the movie Shinji is not at the helm of an EVA something we were used in the first 2 movies and perhaps that's the main problem with this Evangelion. You see just like their can't be a Gundam SEED/Destiny without Kira Yamato flying a Gundam there can't be an Evangelion without Shinji inside an EVA. Bottom line poor implementation of something that could had been a great Evangelion movie.
