O Live Action Attack on Titan: End of the World our countryman is coming to soil this week, bringing the second part of the film version of the manga phenomenon, Attack on Titan. The movie is an adaptation of the manga. Shingeki no Kyojin first released in Japan in 2009, and which has sold around 66 million copies worldwide. In our country, the manga has been published by Editora Panini since 2022 and is in volume 23.
The story revolves around the last human beings who live isolated by a great wall. Beyond her is a threat: gigantic, man-eating titans. Attack on Titan: End of the World is directed by Shinji Higuchi, one of the four founders of the famous animation studio Gainax from Neon Genesis Evangelion. The film seeks without faithful to the maximum the concept developed in the manga and thus generate a terrifying visual experience on the big screen of the cinema.
A direct continuation of the first film, in World's End, Eren is captured by Kubal and his squad, who believe he is a threat to humanity. Distrust grows within the Army and Eren's fate is put to the test when another member of the troop appears who, too, can become a titan and has plans to destroy everything. Would Eren, with the help of the small group of survivors, be able to unravel the mystery of these creatures and prevent humans from becoming extinct?
We can see the film in a special session, made available by the Sato Company, and we can talk a little and SEM SPOILERS than what you will find in the cinema.
Attack On Titan: End of the World it brings all the brutality already known from the manga and anime, and maximizes it with special effects, especially on the Titans and the dismemberment scenes, which are very well done. The film was clearly made for fans of Japanese work, but the fact that it is an adaptation brings changes in characters and events that can be unpleasant for the most ardent fans. The actors are very good in their roles, and they bring the personality of the well-known characters well. I missed more soundtrack, especially the ones present in the anime, which are powerful and fit very well with the narrative.
Attack on Titan: End of the World is showing in our country in 33 rooms, during the 11th, 13th, 22nd and 24th of May. You can check the available cinemas at this link.
It is worth remembering that there are two games inspired by the manga/anime available on Xbox One, they are Attack on Titan e Attack on Titan 2, the latter only available on Live US.
