My daughter steadfastly refuses to watch this live-action version of one of her favourite animes on account of all the unnecessary alterations that have apparently been made to the characters; having neither watched the series, nor read the manga, I cannot comment on the overall impact these changes have had on matters, but I can say that, if you're a fellow newcomer to Attack On Titan, this movie is passable entertainment, largely thanks to the titular Titans, who are freaky sumbitches to be sure!
Massive, monstrous bipeds, Titans love nothing more than to stomp and chomp on humans, which is why, for the past 100 years, mankind has lived behind the safety of a huge protective wall. But now the Titans have found a way inside and are back to filling their bellies with screaming peeps, causing the survivors to retreat behind yet another wall, where they slowly formulate a plan to defeat their enemy. After two years, a special regiment heads into Titan territory, armed with gas-powered jet backpacks and blades with which to sever the napes of the greedy giants.
The CGI used to bring the Titans to life isn't the greatest, but with such a ghoulish concept, and lots of splattery munching of unfortunate victims, I thoroughly enjoyed any scene featuring the ugly, over-sized ogres. What let the film down for me was all the dreary talking that went on in between the action, and the overall gloomy look—far too much grey and blue for my liking. I was also a little confused by the whole 'Eren turning into a Titan' thing at the end, but he sure was a bad-ass, smushing all the other Titans' heads with his bare hands; hopefully all will become clear in Part 2
5.5/10, rounded up to 6 for all the feasting on humans, the gory Titan slaying, and Eren's gloopy descent into a Titan's stomach.
A teenage boy named Eren Jaeger must use his special gift to fight alongside with the military to defeat the titan race. Mankind is on the brink of extinction when these man-eating monsters terrorize everybody and set to destroy the last of human civilization left in the world.
