When aliens are about to blow up the Earth you make haste to stop them, but the protagonists of this live action movie version of the 1974 anime however find the time for long teary farewell scenes!

Audience Reviews for Space Battleship Yamato

Growing up obsessed with Star Blazers I was beyond thrilled to hear of this movie being made. I finally got a chance to watch it and really enjoyed it, although I'd gone into the viewing thinking it would follow a bit more to the animated version. The only part I really graded down on was the ending which, considering the circumstances, dragged a bit.

It's a pretty good action movie, when it's actually being an action movie. It's got some dramatic parts, too the point where you actually wonder why they are being so sappy.

For everything up to Iskandar 5 STARS For the overly long and melodramatic ending, 2.5 stars.... Up to the end it was everything I wanted in a movie remake of my favorite childhood cartoon. No comet empire for us....
