Easy pass. This is a really poor adapation filled with some awful acting.

I saw this at an film fest last year, full of fans of the anime. the audience were openly mocking & laughing at it as it was so bad.

I'm not a big anime fan and haven't watched much since being a teenager (except for Ghibli) but watched this with my daughter who's into it and really enjoyed it. Would be interested in this but nearly £50 for the set is a no go for me.

Yes why can't just be both parts, splitting it is just a rip off :(

Mixed feelings. Loved the anime, not-so-loved the movie (not seen Pt2 yet).
Maybe after the price drop, if not sold out.

Damn for a minute I thought it was the anime series which is quite good and I would have grabbed it

Unfortunately it seems it's the cut down piece of rubbish that's the film :(

I'm an anime fan, but I havent watched the anime or the movie yet, but the steelbook looks awesome.
Please don't even waste your time. I wish I can un-see these movies.
Poor adaptation, and even worse as standalone films.

@TheCollector86 I strongly recommend watching the anime. One of the best in recent years :thumbs:

Interesting choice, not seen the film and although it don't look the best I'd still give them a go

But the price puts me off both so I'll wait for drops. Bound to happen

The original Manga is great, the Anime is great, but this live action adaptaion is just horrible. I`m a Fan of Attack on Titan but this is really bad trash :wtf: I`m happy that I know the movies already so it is very easy not to buy these Steelbooks, because it would be a real waste of money.

I know nothing about the anime series, but I thought the trailer for this looked epic. Is it because it doesn't stay faithful to the anime that people don't like this, or is it simply a bad film anyway?

I was expecting a cross between Pacific Rim and Final Fantasy, but perhaps I'm way off. As I say I know nothing about this series.

Waaay off :LOL:

Give the anime a watch. It's epic. If you're not hooked by the end of episode 5, then it's not your cup of tea.
