Verdict on Attack on Titan
Attack on Titan is a sci-fi action movie following a rescue ship needing to fight back against a rebellious group. They find themselves against the odds and on limited supplies if they are to make it out of the situation.
On paper, this could be a very interesting movie. However, by jumping straight into the conflict, we see to be left to just assume things have been dealt with before. See the first interactions on Titan would have been a lot more interesting. Understanding why the rebels are against working with Earth. As well as not seeing how bad the situation on Earth is.
This ends up feeling like just the opening segment of a much bigger and more interesting story. One we could return to if this story had been more investing.
Final Thoughts – Attack on Titan is a sluggish sci-fi movie.
