Summary: Utter rubbish - but I just couldn't turn it off. It's a movie that is a mixture of bits of 'Tora, Tora, Tora', 'Star Trek', and 'Star Wars'. If you are not into the Japanese culture and their way of doing things you might find it a bit over the top but overall it's well worth a watch.
Summary: Far better than I expected, Fairly well paced and had decent special effects (especially so for such a low budget) well worth a watch if you enjoy Anime as it certainly had that feel to it (i'm guessing deliberately as it is a direct port from an Anime show) The story is (without spoiling it) an epic journey across the stars to recover an artifact which might be able to save Earth but has a few twists and turns in the plot to prevent it from feeling formulaic.
Summary: I quite enjoyed this sci-fi extravaganza made in Japan. Quite well produced with great effects and some great battle scenes. More of an updated Asian version of Star Wars, but more ambitious. My only quibble was that it was rather overlong by at least 30 minutes which did slow down the pace somewhat at times. Nevertheless, if you enjoy sci-fi with plenty of action and drama which this movie does convey in abundance, then give it a try.
Summary: Space Battleship Yamoto is a highly enjoyable Earth–in-peril romp! Huge starships, massive space battles, evil aliens and human heroism! If you enjoyed the remake of Battlestar Galactica - this is a movie you should watch! It has a cracking story, good acting and more than decent special effects. It's blend of emotionalism probably works best for a Japanese audience but this in no way damages the film experience.
Summary: I didn't know quite what to expect from this film – I bought it on a
whim while it was on special, and the trailer certainly looked like it would be
an excellent display of CGI if nothing else. I was pleasantly surprised in that
the story was actually quite well constructed and capably told – it did feel
a bit rushed at times, but that is inevitable when condensing TV series episodes
into a single feature film.
