one of the best Sci-Fi movies lately
12 Million Dollars to produce Yamato? Money well spent, I'd say!

Even though it takes place in limited spaces what is there, looks good. Imagine making Yamato with a Transformers budget. That would give time to bring to life the lengthy battles from the original series. Especially the scene, fighting the subspacemarine would be interesting to see in a sequel.

What I liked about the movie is that it has characters. Somewhat cheesy and over-dramatizing characters at times, but that's Anime for you. There are some actual hero's voyages here involving more than cutting a distance between point a and b. There is the personal story of every character that makes this movie connect on more than an action level, in its best moments.

In its worst moments there are a lot of things I don't understand. Enemies there and then gone. A lot of stuff involving "why didn't they do it" scenarios on either the human or alien side. Plot vagueness might be a good way to call them without giving anything away.

The overall picture is recommendable to any Sci-Fi fan. It feels like they crammed a lot into it and don't always succeed with it. As has been said, the ending is kind of a drag, but it's alright. If I were to chose between this and Transformers, Yamato would make the race due to better story development, more interesting characters and a higher entertainment factor. I guess the Japanese acting is a bit stiff at times, but there is this sense of serenity about it, which makes it yet believable and enjoyable to the end.
