Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato: In the Name of Love 2007 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The mixed reviews are a fair representation of this movie. I, like many of the reviewers, grew up watching Starblazers on US television. When I got a bit older I bought the available VHS and later DVD’s. The stand alone products were a surprise as they were the Japanese original concepts. Does this make them bad? No. Of course not. Does this make them different? Absolutely.
The Japanese animation is traditionally targeted towards adults as much or more then children so what made the US adaptation successful will and is missing from the Japanese original. What is in its place is an animated Soap Opera. This is appropriate and exciting in its own way. I really enjoyed it.
I enjoyed it but beware. Watching foreign films with subtitles is an acquired taste and one that not everyone cares to acquire.
