Madoka Magica is a re-imagined telling of the Christian morality play Faust, delivered in two parts (this is part two). In many ways this film is even more ambitious then the original Faust, as it follows 5 girls, the wishes they make, and how the selfishness of humans corrupt even wishes that on the surface appear selfless. Not only Pride (as the Faust figure suffers from) but also Greed, Gluttony, Envy... truly this film accepts the idea that "no man is good, save God." Though each of the girls are someone we would probably identify as a good person, they are not perfect. Thus inevitably the very human flaws they have doom them. Only the sacrifice of a God can save them. This is probably the most Christian film to come out since The Passion.

Not only is the story timeless, but the execution is excellent. The contrast between the normal beautiful world and the strange twisted landscape of the witches labyrinths adds an artistic element to this film, reminiscent of Edward Scissorhands, or Nightmare Before Christmas.

The new, brilliant art, new additions to the already amazing soundtrack, and the slightly longer time allowed this movie to go above and beyond the already great anime.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is without a doubt the greatest piece of art I have ever seen and I say that after having read many classic books and plays, as well as seeing many cult and classic movies and TV shows. Gen Urobuchi's writing is twisted, tormented, but 100% relatable. Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a story of hope and despair that will stay with you forever thanks to the fanatic work of Gen Urobuchi and the awe striking animation of SHAFT.

If you can only see one film in your life, make it Purlla Magi Madoka Magica Parts 1 & 2.

Amazing combination of great characters, good artwork, awesome plot, surrealism, and after the introductions it holds your attention to keep watching the following episodes! It has almost a Hayao Miyazaki (studio Ghibli) feel towards the characters in a way which you learn to like them all and there is no definite good or evil. There is a lot of relate-able material

It is simply the anime that has been re-edited and enhanced. The anime is a work of art and so is this. Maybe the definitive version. Though I can see why only some cities will ever get to see it. Madoka is all about playing with expectation and does it well. By the end you may have changed your definition of Magical Girl genre and you may learn to fear the cute pets.

whilst the premise of true friendship was moving, i found the anime a tad too long. the witches' labyrinths looked boringly similar after a while (except the last battle) and the fluffy red-eyed "incubator" was annoying. i prefer Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha over Madoka anyday!

Like the TV show, nothing really different
