Wow. Let's begin with that.
I'm a huge fan of the Evangelion series, both the original and the new films. After 2.22, which was phenominal in almost every aspect, I had huge expectations for 3/Q. And wow, was I ever left with a sour taste in my mouth.
I would love to spend time writing a massive block about this movie, but I will keep it simple.
We've skipped forward 14 years and have no idea what's happened in between. Big characters are missing, thing's are not explained, and what the heck is Shinji going to do
Unfortunately, I was just really let down by this, and feel it was nowhere near consistent with the original story, or even kept along track with the previous movie. There isn't nearly the action I had hoped for, and the story leaves way too much to be asked for.
I would rather have waited another year.
