J. Michael Tatum,
It is the second year of the Kowa Period. The world has unified around the reorganize United Federation of Nations, and has enjoyed days of continuing peace, but now, that peace suddenly comes to an end. Suzaku, while travelling as the masked man "Zero" accompanying Nunnally on her visit to the refugee camp, is defeated by a mysterious Knightmare Frame, and the two of them are taken away. Following secret orders from Schneizel, Kallen, Lloyd and Sayoko infiltrate Zilkistan, the Land of Warriors, where they are attacked by a mysterious Geass user. There in Zilkhstan is a person named C.C., known to the assailants as the "former master". In the indomitable kingdom which once conquered even the great army of the Holy Britannian Empire, what do the people desire? Hope, or despair? The people of Zilkhstan Palace certainly know of Geass. What are they, and C.C., planning?
Honestly, I'm not sure what to say to justify this movies existence, considering that the show before it had a fitting, satisfying conclusion. I originally saw Code Geass as it was newly released and it remained one of my top favorite anime for a long time, i also recall the theories about Lelouch gaining the same immortality as his father had, but this was a long speculation, until now.
The anime later had a couple of movies that were made to change some elements from the original show, some more major than others and this was a surprising change of event, however i digress.
Fast forward to 2019, now we have Lelouch of the Re;Surrection, it's just as i could expect a continuation to be, but i'd rather have had it as a series on its own but we got a movie instead. So you're probably wondering if this movie was worth all the hype? In one way, it checked a lot of lists, remained consistent and had the exact same beat as the show itself, but there is just something about this movie that just juggled a lot of fan service in front of my face, but did so sparingly.
Final verdict from me is a 7/10 as it feels like i should have enjoyed this movie, i really should, but to undo such a satisfying climax which the original show left behind is without a doubt in my mind, a betrayal. But for what this movie is, i could have taken it or left it. Everything you love about Code Geass remains intact and i commend them for it.
