Berserk: The Golden Age Arc II: The Battle for Doldrey Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"The Berserk storyline has been going on for quite some time. So long in fact that I was barely born back when the manga first debuted back in 1990. However over its two decade long run it has been quite popular and even received an anime adaptation back in 1997. Now the series is being revisited with a trilogy of films covering the “Golden Age” arc of the manga and while the first movie was already released in North America by Viz, the second movie still won’t be released for quite some time. That is of course, unless you have access to Viz’s Neon Alley service where the second movie, The Battle for Doldrey, debuted this weekend. How does this movie fair? Let’s find out."

Berserk is like one of my favorite manga and anime but these first 2 movies were pretty bad. The CGI is horribly tacky and we never even got to see Gut's childhood and stuff which explains a lot about his character but it was lost in transition because of the limited time. And that's just one of the many things that had to be sacrificed in order to accommodate it into a trilogy. Evangelion did a much better job but they ruined everything with the 3rd film... Meanwhile people are expecting the Berserk trilogy to go with a bang with the 3rd film.

Evangelion ..I actually liked the the third film. the first film I didn't enjoy because it was like a recap of the original show, the second movie I enjoyed because they changed the story a little. the third film is whole new different thing. However, over all I though they all were nothing compared to the original.

berserk the first had some moment that they nailed and that was it. Berserk the second film was a big improvement and I found it awesome mainly because they nailed the action this time. can't wait for the third.
