Space Battleship Yamato is nothing short of a master piece.

This is particularly going to be the case for every fan of the original Star Blazers animated series that came out in the late 70's and early 80's. It was before it's time then and it's still incredibly amazing today.

This live action movie captured the spirit of the show fantastically. The actors were all superb and the attention to detail was incredible.

As they were only commissioned to do a single film, I thought the adaptation of the Gamalons(completely changed from the ones we knew in the animated films. There's still inklings of that race but there heavily modified for the movie), was incredible and understood the need to change them to fit with the limited time frame of the movie.

The action scenes that are jam packed into this movie are incredible. As a kid I always used to love the combat scenes in Starblazers and I was amazed that when watching this movie I was actually wishing for more of the charcter interactions and story arc. However I was tickled pink to say the least with the amazing combat scenes. In essence this is a battle ship and I felt the pace of the movie was superb and really captured that in the heat of battle feeling.

My only gripe with the entire film was that I wanted more, which essentially means it was a terrific movie. (All good movies should leave you feeling this way).

I'm hoping that there might be a follow up movie to capture the next season of Starblazers and perhaps even a third(well most movie houses seem to go for trilogies these days).

Seriously, if your a fan of Starblazers, then get this now. Please don't download it, buy it to support these guys, it's been the best movie purchase I've made in years.

Based on the Japanese anime series of the 70s shown on US TV as Starblazers, Toho’s lavish 2010 live-action version of Space Battleship Yamato takes the show’s rather silly premise and runs with it with unexpected success. It’s the kind of thing that you can usually only get away with in animation, but amazingly they manage to make it play with flesh and blood actors as the last survivors of a losing war with an alien race that has rendered the earth’s surface uninhabitable who, naturally, send a refurbished WW2 battleship into space in a last ditch effort to save the planet. That’s right, a WW2 battleship. Yet somehow it creates just enough of a credible near-apocalyptic world where anything that can be salvaged and made into a weapon will be to sell the aerodynamically unfeasible idea and does an impressive enough job of distilling the story arc of the entire series into one 138-minute film without feeling it’s trying to pack in too much that it emerges as one of the most entertaining sci-fi spectacles of recent years.

Despite its surprisingly modest $22m budget, it’s an often spectacular production that makes you wonder how Toho could manage to make an epic sci-fi film with plenty of (for the most part) excellent special effects and a large ensemble cast for less than a quarter of what David Fincher spent on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, let along the kind of money a Hollywood summer blockbuster would cost. Aside from a few bits of not-quite-finished-looking compositing in the alien planet scene there’s nothing that looks cut-rate or bargain basement here: Toho have certainly come a long way since their sci-fi films of the 50s and 60s.

I was a huge fan of the Starblazers tv series and when i heard of its rebirth as a anime then a live action I was thrilled . however bad luck was on my side since the USA was not going to carrying it until 2013 or 2014 . I was overjoyed at seeing it on Amazon.Uk .
Anyways the CGI is awesome .The fight scenes are things you love catching on sf space battles . Granted it differers from the anime with a few twists BUT to quote River Song " Spiolers " ...

Two problems with the live action Space Battleship Yamato. Its based off an anime series, and this is one of the best anime to live adaptations I've seen, at the same time the writing hasn't done enough to ensure the film stands on its own two feet. Many aspect are left open, in a way that suggests "if you enjoyed this, you'll love the series". Leaving this film in a state of limbo for large stretches. The second problem is the flat out ridiculous indulgence in melodrama during the last 10 minutes, taking any sting out of the tail. But it's still a fun watch, without revisiting the classics there aren't many new sci-fi films that trade in space opera and spaceships. With its mix of Star Wars, Star Trek(TV) and Mass Effect (VG), it's refreshingly old-school and refreshingly simplistic. It just suffers from a lack of its own fully realised identity.

Probably one of the best sci-fi films I've seen for a while, with great visuals and some awesome action that should please any viewer. Given the recent rebirth of Star Trek, and ongoing success of Hollywood sci-fi and visually appealing blockbusters, it's a pleasure to see that Japan has its own answer to this trend. The biggest budget film in Japanese history matches up to its western counterparts and offers a fresh look at space exploration.

One important thing to note is the film is very much a product of Japanese culture. The scripting is often over-dramatic, and the acting quite exaggerated, but if you can accept these as stylistic differences to the standard Hollywood blockbuster, then Space Battleship Yamato is definitely an essential in your sci-fi epic collection!
