Review:

When it comes to giant monsters, the Japanese know their shit… so no wonder Attack on Titan is the most impressive giant monster movie to come out in years. Inspired from the manga series of the same name (Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese), the movie is part 1 of a two-part series, a pretty popular format in Japan.

After the lameness of the latest Godzilla, Attack on Titan really brings the best of the giant monster genre. As a bonus, there is not only one creature… but an army of them, and they are extremely creepy!!! They are basically giant deformed naked people. Just seeing them walking is already disturbing, but when they start chewing on people alive and splattering blood all over…it is complete madness.

The post-apocalyptic scenario is sort of a mix between Godzilla and Maze Runner, which all of humanity is locked behind a series of walls and have to organize themselves as that they can to attack the Titans and gain back their freedoms. For sure, the movie isn’t a masterpiece. The story is quite cheesy, and the characters tend to be irritating, but there are also many fun scenes and the ending will make you forget all the lengthy moments. The fight scenes, with people flying in the air, are also a bit laughable, but the same, it is easily compensated by how majestic the titans are.

I expected a lame giant monster movie and came back from the cinema completely shocked by how unsettling all experience was. Highly recommended.
