Audience Reviews for Space Battleship Yamato


Takashi Yamazaki steps up and delivers a futuristic science fiction adventure out of Japan.Space Battleship Yamato contains a plot that is good enough to get by. Where the film really excels though is the emphasis on its characters. So much so, that it takes the film out to easily past 2 hours. Still, many of the characters do become likable.The space battles are a bit brief, but they are beautifully rendered. For the first 90 minutes or so, the CG effects are nicely done. It is in the final 45 minutes, when the picture goes into "Iscandar" mode and CG overdrive, where the effects and story tend to take a dive; however, ultimately this movie is still visually pleasing.Takuya Kimura's performance is acceptable as a leading man's role. The stunning Meisa Kuroki also shows that she can act as good as she looks. Thanks to the writing the rest of the supporting cast fail to disappoint.Space Battleship Yamato contains some big speeches and those so-called epic scenes, thus it is worth the time for a viewing.
