Goofs

During the scene when Rei attacks Wunder, there is a close up shot of Shinji screaming, during the close up we didn't see his collar attached to his neck, however, after a flash of explosion, the collar magically appears.

However, this mistake only appears in the home video version. See more »

A pleasant surprise
13 July 2013 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I must have watched the End of Evangelion about 50 times. I absolutely loved everything about the original series and, to this date, i still think the original ending is my single most favorite piece of media. That's part of the reason why i wasn't very excited with the whole rebuild thing at first, and especially seeing as how the ending was going to be changed.

This movie has totally redeemed rebuild for me. It has turned out to not be the visually better, slightly refined more-of-the-same I (and perhaps several others) were expecting. It is a different story, but it's more of the genius Anno building on the core concepts that made Evangelion the classic it is.

The Eva fan will find an alien world, the grand-scheme of things that helped you understand the original series (if you ever did try) has changed, shifted. And just like in the original, that grand-scheme isn't really critical information, because the center of Evangelion is the story of Shinji Ikari dealing with a (now completely) hostile world that will try to manipulate, shock and break him in every way.

To those that are disappointed and confused about this movie just as i was when i first watched End of Eva, i personally recommend to watch it again as many times as necessary, as the story has several "layers", like any great work of art.
