Just watched Eva 2.0 last night, after 2 days with little sleep. I enjoyed it tremendously, despite feeling sleepy-ish throughout the show. There were plenty of action scenes, with angels popping out rather regularly to break the peace of Tokyo-3 (as well as wake me up a little). We see the old cast, Rei and Shinji, complemented with Asuka’s lively appearance, and topped off with the new mysterious bespectacled brunette Mari in a whole new Evangelion plot. A remake of the original, Evangelion 2.0, also known as 新劇場版: 破, brings the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy to a whole new exciting level.

I’d like to spoil as little as I can, as the film is nothing short of awesome in its own ways, and I’d very much encourage you to watch it on the screens. However, if you’re fresh on the Eva franchise, here’s a little plot teaser (from wiki’s article on Eva 2.0):

Continuing where the previous film, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone, left off, the movie opens with a new EVA pilot, Mari Illustrious Makinami, launched with EVA Provisional Unit 05 to destroy the Third Angel which is attacking the arctic Bethany Base of NERV. She successfully defeats the Angel by self-destructing Unit 05, safely ejecting at the last moment. The film the cuts to Shinji and Gendo visiting Yui’s grave and NERV Chief Inspector Ryoji Kaji is later revealed to arrive and hand Gendo a suitcase containing an object referred to as the ‘Key of Nebuchadnezzar’. When the Seventh Angel attacks, EVA Unit 02 and its pilot Captain Asuka Langley Shikinami arrive in Japan via air transport and quickly destroy the Angel.”

Again, I’m definitely going to watch this on the screens again. Have you caught this film yet?
