I saw this movie twice, during its release in the US, & I'm glad I did. The movie had beautiful Animation, the characters are just as memorable here if not better than the previous Fate series, it had great comedic moments, awesome action, & certainly some Dark & creepy moments. Yes, Fate/Zero was dark, this movie is just as dark if not Darker, for a movie that mostly relied on build up, it got brutal. I like changes that were added to the movie, it actually works & certainly gives us a better understanding of the characters. The only negative I can give to this movie, is that I would not recommend it any new comers of Fate, you have to watch Fate/Zero & UBW first, before you see this movie.
