I bought this film and I was excited. I was thrilled to see more of a great series, and what was supposed to be a finale. Soon after this release, there came The End of Evangelion. I watched this first.
The first hour and a half was a recap of every single episode in the series. I was so mad! The last twenty or thirty minutes were new. I wasn't mad anymore. But then, the ending left me hanging. I rushed to the store and bought the last film:
This film is amazing! The first half hour sort of recapitulated the last half hour of Death and Rebirth. So, D&R is rendered completely frivolous. You don't need it! End of Evangelion has it all. This one brings the story to a close, answering most of the questions one might have. It's well made and well written. After I got over the fact that I had to return the worthless first film, I was overcome with pure joy. If you're a fan of the series, but haven't watched any of the movies yet, I hope these reviews help. Just buy EofE!
