A Random Blog of Everything I like
I gave 3.5 out of 5 stars for the first movie (here) because I still enjoy the appearance of the titans and the atmosphere of the movie despite the bad characterization on Mikasa.
I was looking forward to see the second movie although I know that there will be a lot of changes as the manga and anime haven’t finished yet. I was hoping that the screenwriter can come up with a good way to end the movie…something with the same atmosphere of the manga/anime.
It was below my expectation…it was the worst way to create an ending. It felt so forced up…it was like they want to make it full of thrill and twist BUT what came up is full of stupid and forced thrill and twist.
If you plan to watch it and don’t want to be spoiled…YOU STOP READING FROM NOW ON.
Suddenly…another intelligent titan (just like Eren) showed up. It came trampling down the squad and took Eren with him. It also killed most of the squad.
Eren woke up in a white room and Captain Shikishima was there. he explained every bad past to Eren, titans were once human. It was an experiment went wrong. Out of calculation, the number of human turned into titans increased significantly and ended up making human protected themselves with walls. This far, I still found it an good made up story. I can still accept it.
The coming of the second intelligent titan:
What I couldn’t enjoy is the fact that everyone seemed to be coming back to life again in order to twist the story…I REALLY HATE this kinda story!!
Shikishima wanted to destroy the wall so that human will fear the titans even more, Eren and the rest of the squad wanted to stop him and closed the hole in the wall. The battle between the two of them was inevitable. It was still okay for me.
The defeated titan (ups…I forgot to mention that the other intelligent titan was Shikishima – of course!! Everyone could easily guess that!) laid unconscious. And suddenly, the Kubal (the head of the squad) was there to stop them…What??? He was dead!!! And suddenly he was back from the death. To make things worse…he turned out to be the Colossal Titan who had made the hole in the wall. AND THEN Shikishima was back again in action.
SERIOUSLY!!! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON THERE???
At that point…I was already like “whatever!” and had lost any interest on the movie. All I wanted at that time was just to see the movie ends as quickly as possible so I could leave the cinema.
Even though the first movie was not the best adaptation but I still like it and enjoy it, but I hate the second one so bad.
