Escaflowne: The Movie


Run time: 96 Minutes
Rating: PG-13
Theme: Action


Hitomi Kanzaki is tired of life. Depressed and despondent, she wishes that she could just fade away, to make the pain of living stop hurting. Her pain resonates with another on the world of Gaea, and when her wish is granted, she finds herself in a strange land. She is greeted as the Wing Goddess, who possesses the power to summon the legendary Escaflowne. Hitomi's fate is interwined with the brashed young warrior king Van, who also feels that life has lost it's meaning. Sworn to strike back at the Black Dragon Caln which destroyed his kingdom, he fights to exist, and exist to fight.
The arrival of the Wing Goddess marks the final turning point in Van's battle, as she holds an entire world's destiny in her heart. By summoning Escaflowne, the Wing Goddess will choose that path of Gaea's future. But is heart's desire salvation...or destruction?


Okie-freakin-dokie, Although I kinda liked the Escaflowne's series, the movie isnt probably in my top 10 favorites list. It was kinda blaned? if you will...and the story was kinda hard to follow, shes really depressed in the beginning and it jumps from scene to scene like 400Kajillion times...its annoying in some cases. The fight scene's are good though and the art work is awesome but I dont think its quite enough to make up for the flaws that the storyline carries and the problems with organinization...if I spelled that right... :-/

7 (eh, well...err...) / In my opinion, its an ok rent, but isnt quite worth the money it host to buy.
