    A brilliant movie

    First, a warning: do not see this movie if you haven't seen the entire series already. Now that that's over with, I must say that I think that almost everything about this movie is perfect. Be warned that despite the fantastical premises, this is about as far from escapism as you can get. Certain parts of it do not appear to mean anything unless you mentally combine them with the last two episodes of the series, but if you don't like to think, you shouldn't be watching Evangelion in the first place. This is a movie that I think everyone should see. I do take off a star, however, because the animation quality is not what it should be. While the decrease in the animation quality was perfectly acceptable in the end of the series, and would have been in parts of this movie, the parts that are meant to be completely literal are still mostly drawn in the ethereal manner from episodes 25 & 26. Also, for some reason the SEELE monoliths have been given a different typeface, and Makoto Hyuga's english voice actor is distractingly different from the one used in the series. Thus while the concept of the film is perfect, it loses a star for being distinctly sub-par in its execution.

    Looking for ways to melt your mind?

    End of Eva is a very heavy peice of work. It is one of the most mature movies ever made, anime or otherwise. Aside from the sometimes disturbing graphic violence, there is symbolism and plot elements that would be completely lost on anyone under the age of 14. Even if you have seen the series and understood it, you will leave this movie depressed, shocked, and trying to find a meaning to it all. The first half of the movie violently portrays the invasion of central dogma and Asuka's killing spree of all the invaders. After that it degenerates into religious imagery and the depths of Shinji's mind, which is a sad and disturning place to go. We lose track of what happens in the physical world because of the extreme, shall we say, weirdness of third impact. To be experienced, not understood. Please do not try to understand it. You will receive a massive headache and will be depressed for weeks. The series portrays the physcological elements better. The movie is meant to make us say, ''What the?!'' And it does so superbly.
