First there's gonna be some spoilers so read this review after viewing 3.0
Story- What story?!! start out in space, blast the music to give a sense of epicness about to follow. No epic battle follows though. just unit 02 and Mari retrieving some "thing" which turns out to be unit 01. okay.....
we then see Shinji coming to wondering just what the f*ck is going on (with the rest of us) he's on board the Wunder- basically a ship captained by Katsuragi along with a few other NERVE underlings- btw they all hate Shinji now,(Asuka actually punches the glass between them) are using the core of unit 01 to power thier ship and refuse to let him ever pilot an Eva again - they put a collar on him that'll kill him just in case he gets the urge.(later we find out he caused a near 3rd impact killing lots of humanity and covering the Earth completely red)
Wunder is attacked by an Eva stuff happens, Shinji is back at Nerve HQ(what's left of it) He sees Rei- she's a clone, so what happened to the one he saved? we don't know. He befriens Kaworu who in this incarnation is just as egnimatic- he seems to be the only positive character. End scenes- Shinji and Kowaru pilot together in unit 13 to get some spears outta lilith's corpse. bad idea since that wasn't lilith but unit 6 which was an Angel. Shinji causes a 4th impact see's Kowaru's head explode and totally loses it.
where's Rie?(one he saved) wtf happend in the 14 year gap? why do all the characters seem so gritty and hard assed?(imagine mid 80's DC comics gritty) what's the Curse of the Evas that keeps pilots from aging? when did Katsuragi go rogue? what are Adam's vessels- how are they different from Evas? Where are the missing characters? why is Shinji still such an Emo crybaby?(this time causing mass extinction is a good reason)
Animation and sound were alright- technically it suffers by drumming up mediocre moments or just wasting animation on things we could have done without- the whole Wunder engine startup anyone?
overall and this kills me since I'm such an Avid Evangelion fan but it gets a 3 for being more confusing than the Plot of Prometheus. Went in not expecting answers but still not expecting so many more questions.
