ATTACK ON TITAN: END OF THE WORLD
2015, FUNimation Entertainment, 100 min, Japan, Dir: Shinji Higuchi

The apocalyptic horror-fantasy reaches its thrilling conclusion a few years after the Titans first breached the outer defensive wall; the creatures’ ferocious attacks have steeled the resolve of Eren, Mikasa and Armin to defeat them, and though the odds are against mankind, the Titans have a weak spot. Like the first installment of ATTACK ON TITAN, this fast-moving film is darker (and gorier) than its source material, and visually impressive despite a budget far below that of Hollywood blockbusters.


ATTACK ON TITAN
2015, FUNimation Entertainment, 90 min, Japan, Dir: Shinji Higuchi

Inspired by Hajime Isayama’s popular manga series, the first of this two-part live-action horror-fantasy finds teen friends Eren (Haruma Miura), Armin (Kanata Hongo) and Mikasa (Kiko Mizuhara) wondering about the world beyond a protective wall, built after a devastating attack a century earlier. Their sense of security is shattered when huge, man-eating Titans break through the defensive structure, once again threatening humanity with extinction. “Outstanding and immersive aesthetic unlike any other horror movie, swiftly paced and gripping start to finish.” - Hope Chapman, Anime News Network. In Japanese with English subtitles.
