Superb

 (8/10)

OPENING SCENE
The opening scene is truly epic and works perfectly, and flows much better than the opening scene from Evangelion 1.0.

EDITING
Compared to the previous film, the editing is much better. The film flows beautifully from one scene to another.

NEW MATERIAL
And the reason may well be that we are not comparing the film so much with its original material. Evangelion 1.0 was very much similar to the series, therefore, we kept comparing and seeing where the series was better. Because retelling a masterpiece can be like having to win a marathon and having to go at it once again, this is very difficult.
In Evangelion 2.0, the Angels are much different, the dialogue is different and therefore, this is to me a true and interesting retelling.

SIMPLER
Also, the movie does exactly what was needed. The story is simpler (at least the main storyline). Therefore, when Shinji's Eva kills Unit 03. It makes much more sense to simply have Asuka inside of it and not spend too long on introducing Toji's character. This is a clear difference between movies and series, where you don't have so much time in films and must go straight to the point, whereas in series you can take hours to carefully introduce storylines and play with those.

PEOPLE ON STREETS!
Deedadeedade. People on streets! Deedadeedadeedadeedadeeda.
Even more than in the previous film, one concrete and irrefutable quality over the original series is the level of details and realism of the city. We really see the people on the streets, the lights in individual houses, the people in the subway, on the bus, etc.

MUSIC
The music is brilliant. I recommend everyone to purchase the film's soundtrack.

MYTHOLOGY
- The Treaty Vatican states that a country can only have so far as three Evas. Hence the Evas Unit 00, 01 and 03 from Japan.

SUMMARY
A much better retelling as its predecessor, which was a bit, if not entirely pointless. I give it 8 out of 10. Superb.


Amazing
