It's not worth it
5 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Have you noticed that no one who actually enjoyed the series has enjoyed this pitiful excuse for a movie? There's a reason for that. It's a drastic change from everything about Black Butler that we know and love. For example, the female main character was originally a 12 year old boy. And to be honest, that 12 year old boy had more chemistry with Sebastian than this knock-off chick. Do you know how boring she is? I don't remember her name. That's how boring she is.

And even though Sebastian somehow managed to not get replaced (even though Ciel is the main character and is no where to be found.) he didn't make it through unscathed. He's a poor reflection of himself. He's got none of the charm, none of the draw, and none of the appeal. Hell, he's barely even attractive. While that may seem like nitpicking, one of Sebastian's traits in canon is being attractive. Multiple people point it out and it's even used to get information out of a nun at one point. This guy is honestly average at best.

This is Dragonball Evolution. That's what this is. There's no getting around it. This is The Last Airbender but with Black Butler. It's only enjoyable if you have no idea what it's supposed to be. Any actual fans of Black Butler are going to be very very disappointed. If you like diluted adaptations of wonderful things where they alienate the original audience and instead make the movie a sub-par generic mess, go right ahead.
