After the first two good movies of this trilogy, this last one,"The Advent", is a disappointment.
The story continues after the events that ended the previous one. Guts is back, and he gets back with Casca and the others. Pretty soon there is a rescue mission to get Griffith back and out of the dungeon where he is languishing.
What follows is a mess that lasts for over an hour.
What could have been a cool rescue mission or some nice fight scenes (as in the previous two), here descends into purposeless carnage, with gore, blood and monsters just making their appearance for not particular reason, and characters that had been developed in the previous two movies left as little more than just caricatures of themselves. We are not getting into this kind of action movies for their plot, but at least a little bit of interest in developing it and the characters is expected. And the action does not help in this case, because, as said, it is boring, repetitive and lazy.
Fans may enjoy reuniting with the characters, but there is little else to recommend.
