4.0 out of 5 stars New Blu-ray/DVD combo (May 2014) May 8 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is the recent re-release of the film, on Blu-ray.

Image quality is excellent, sound is excellent, all as one should expect from a Blu-ray release.

On to the film:
This was the first time I actually got to see it, and I never saw the original animated series. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It's a Japanese film, so it has the aesthetics that go along with that.

The action scenes are great.
The look of the film, the world building, the ships, were all absolutely top quality. However, here and there the actual CGI effects betrayed the lower budget available for the film, but not in a way that had any truly negative impact on enjoyment of the film.
The story was (and I guess this is in the nature of the animé origins) a TINY bit cheesy and improbable. But let's be honest, how many sci-fi films aren't written that way?

Acting was very very solid all the way through, although for those not used to the slightly overly-dramatic approach in Asian cinema it might come across as bad acting. I don't think it is. It's very theatrical.

Where the film sort of bogs down is toward the end, with a series of melodramatic "tear jerker" scenes which almost bring the last half hour to a screeching halt, though not quite.

It's a long movie, at slightly over 2 hours.
There seems to be a plethora of extras on both Blu-ray and DVD copies, though I haven't had the chance to go through them yet.

All in all, I am more than satisfied with this purchase (and Amazon delivered it a full day ahead of the original shipping date, which is always a pleasure).

5.0 out of 5 stars Blazing Stars July 13 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The first Japanimation I ever saw was a series called Starblazers; this film is a live action condensation of that series' first season.
About as faithful as a one off film could be to an entire season, and a very good job!
One can tell at times there wasn't time or budget to do multiple takes of performances, but this is rarely noticeable.
Seems to have been made exclusively by fans of the original series, and can comfortably stand on its own merits , to be enjoyed even by by those unfamiliar with the original.
The effects are stunning, yet appropriate- the real stars here remain the characters.
I'm very pleased to have lived to see a "real" wave motion cannon, and highly recommend this movie to all.
I'm hopeful another will be made.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from this amateurish bomb!!! June 18 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Total disappointment! Slow paced, stiff acting, mediocre special effects with an unsatisfying ending. Animated series much more entertaining. Don't waste your time and money on this!!!! Hold on to your childhood memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Film! May 26 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film surpassed all my expectations. Was amazing. When you find out the limited budget they had for CGI, what they brought to the table is UNBELIEVEABLE! Highly recommend this to everyone, worth the time to watch!
