Kevin’s review published on Letterboxd:
Sadly my least favorite leading up to the fourth release which I will hopefully be watching very soon, still good overall though. I really believe this film would be greatly helped by a longer runtime by at least 15 minutes, if Shinji is going to listen to Kaworu’s words that quickly to sway his decisions I would have liked to see him build his friendship and trust even more, and on the flip side display even more distrust or at least more confusion towards the actions of other characters like Misato and Asuka beyond “what are you doing?” in the heat of the moment but with no contemplation on it afterwards. The fight that starts the movie looked really impressive in terms of animation although it made for a slightly confusing, but attention grabbing, opening. The visuals in this overall are BONKERS though. I’m still very excited about the new one!
