God is in his heaven, all is (Not) right with the world.
The Angels have descended. These colossal extraterrestrial monsters besiege the fortress-city of Tokyo-3 and our last line of defence is the Evangelion battle machine and its teenage pilot. A decade on, Hideaki Anno has reimagined his Neon Genesis Evangelion saga as a big cinema experience; it is both faithful to the original story and style, but tempered with the clarity and characterisation of a master story-teller.
Visually, Evangelion 1.0 is bathed in glorious light and is infused with Anno's signature moments of stillness and poetry.
With the addition of evocative neologisms, hybrid theology, windblown hair - and thunderous combat - you get much, much more than ‘troubled teen saves world at helm of giant robot'. 2008's most anticipated anime release.
