Default AIR MOVIE REVIEW (SPOILER!!!!!!)

No, I havent seen it. However, one of website where I visit often have posted how movie is like. It's very shocking they say.

- Most people are saying that it didn't live up to people's expectation. =/

- Suprisingly, TV versions art and other quality are much better than the
movie version

- Misuzu's personality is COMPLETLY different. She has a lot more serious personality than the TV version of herself. For example, Misuzu asks Yukito to Kiss her o_O

- People are saying that Yukito and Misuzu's first meeting is similar to Ryouya and Kanna's first meeting in Summer scenario.

- Opening is, again, chopped-off version of Tori no Uta.

- Summer scenario is not seperated. From what I heard, Summer scenario in movie is actually a Misuzu's summer vacation report project, which is about Kanna and her clan. This was taken by suprise to everyone.

- Kanna never leaves the temple in the movie o_O

- So little Uraha....

- YUKITO'S PUPPET SHOW ACTUALLY DRAWS CROWDS AND HE EARNS GOOD AMOUNT OF MONEY.

- Only Misuzu wears Stego t-shirts

- Yukito's personality is very DARK.

- Misuzu rarely speaks "Gao" and "Nihaha."

- Sora is NOT Yukito. Sora is just an animal in the movie version.

- Shocking Ending......

What the hell? Sounds like a really bad fanfic.

Seriously, from what I read you might as well wonder what they didn't change...

They gave that part away in the limited-edition preview disk. Uh... or so I heard. Obviously I wouldn't know personally. Ehehe. ^^;

Many people are saying that it will feel horrible to watch the movie with the original story in your head(mind).

Some are considering the movie version as side or alternate story.

So that's what Midorikawa-san meant when he said he's gonna be a Dezaki-style Yukito... <_<;;

It's a good thing half the fanbase is currently being distracted by the TV series to go storm Toei ;)

Really now, a 2 hour or whatever movie, they were going to have to be majorly clippy and do things in brisk ways... for example Misuzu even asking Yukito for a kiss.

but then, this makes the characters seemingly unlike their true selves in Air though...

I guess that's why so many people originally assumed they'd use the movie to wrap up the TV series. Like with Evangelion. Obviously that was never going to happen with different companies doing the two, but it would have been nice...

As it is, I guess this really will be a case of thinking of it as a different interpretation of the same story. Kind of like comparing a Disney film with the Grimm original. There's nothing actually wrong with that - even Hamlet was a remake of an older play, after all. It's just not what the fans wanted...

well reardless of it being different, I think people should watch it with an open mind. surely there are some differences but as Haeleth has said, its probably just a different interpretation of the same story.

I honestly thought of it more like Escaflowne the movie, since it sounded just like that... trying to do a spin on the story that they could start and wrap in movie time.

Or like X the movie. (Gets impaled for that one)

But it doesn't seem I was so far off...

For my part, I thought that X the movie had one of the most interesting musical scores in an anime, ever. That alone was a sufficient reason for me to like it ...

Looks like bad reviews are mostly comming from people who HAVE PLAYED AIR game.
People who didn't know anything about AIR liked the movie I hear...

Little more spoiler:

- Yukito does not refuse to drink dorori noko Juice.....

- Ryouya and Kanna speaks to each other in 'honorific-term' (ie. Like how Sayuri talks to Yuuich.)

- <<Elbhln trgf xvyyrq.....>>

Yes... I've seen a few more reviews myself now, and there does seem to be a consensus emerging that it's not a bad movie.

See for example Houkoholic's review here (don't worry, I'm linking to an English-language site for once). He looks past the massive differences and concludes that it captures the essence of the game quite well.

If it's like that I wouldn't mind at all; I really liked the Escaflowne movie after all.
