Attack On Titan Part 1 Movie Review

100 years ago, titans suddenly appeared on Earth. Soon, human civilization veered on collapse due to the titans. Humans then built a giant wall to defend themselves. Within the giant walls, humans lived in peace, but, 100 years later, the giant wall is broken. Mankind is under the terror of titans, a beast in which feast on human flesh. Eren Yeager, a young boy determined to make change when he himself could transform into one. He is humanity’s last hope. As the story progresses, the truth behind the origin of the Titans arises and the story shifts to one about political subterfuge.

Watched Attack On Titan Part 1 with Cynthia at The Cathay Cineplex yesterday night!

Personally, I felt that the story was refreshing and gripping that stands on its own. If you never read the manga or watch the anime, I believe you may find that the introductory appear rather brief without much background.

Initially, the plot seems weak and predictable. However, it got better with a good story build up that was interesting. Particularly, I enjoyed this scene where the squad work together to save Shingeki no Kyojin life, that was indeed intense. However, the insertion of a sexual scene seems redundant and not applicable to its flow. The digital effects presented was vague which could have been fine-tuned as well. 

Haruma Miura did well in his craft as (Eren Yeager)! A rather convincing delivery!

Anyway, if you followed closely to the anime or manga series, do watch it with an open mind to avoid disappointment.
