Berserk: The Golden Age Arc 1: The Egg of the King Review [Capsule Computers]

Simon Wolfe of Capsule Computers writes:

"Berserk is a a manga series going back more than 20 years best known for its level of violence and popular enough that it got an anime series back in 1997 thought was able to cover the entire arc up until that point. But, as is often the case, anime can cover so much more ground in a such a short time that the original anime came to an end when it had caught up. Now, after the manga has had many more chapters and covered much more ground it was considered time to go at it again with another adaptation to include the entire manga series, though albeit taking a different direction. Instead of an anime series the approach this time is a set of movies, the first three covering The Golden Age Arc. The first now being released in North America as Berserk: The Golden Age Arc 1: The Egg of the King."

I agree with this review complete, this movie is good but it is not great

Never been a fan of the Berserk series, good review but still not going to watch it.

the movie was ok but definitely disappointing imo. the cgi just looks ugly, wish they stayed with normal animations.
casca role and the voice behind her were just too weak.. some scenes could've been better but in the end it was an ok film.
the death of julius and his son was the best part of the film for me .. maybe one of my favorite part in the manga also. they've done it just really well.

anyway the second movie was fucking good! I don't know if because I had low expectation or something but it was AMAZING! really well done even the cgi ( they nailed it ) .. the details and how guts continue to fight when he is injured (his change of style ..etc ) .. killing those 100 men was a sight to behold (it felt real). even casca role is far better than the first film 10X!

anyway, I ve read the manga so I am really happy that I could enjoy this one. I can't complain.. I think the film was perfect compared to the first however I hope to see something superior in the 3rd movie ( keeping the best for last .. I hope )

Yeah the 2nd movie was good. I'm surprised they not censoring it like everything else in Japan. Since they got that weird law.
