Berserk the Egg of the King
Welcome back to the wonderfully violent world of Berserk with the
latest film from Lucent Pictures which continues the story of this
highly popular Manga and Anime Series. The film in question is
Berserk The Egg of the King which revolves around a mercenary called
Guts who doesn't take crap from no one. He also happens to be one of the
biggest badasses around.
to his fighting prowess, he joins a band called The Hawk which is led by
the enigmatic Griffith, another equally impressive fighter who on more
than one occasion get into a heated argument. Another key character in
the first movie of this new movie trilogy is Casca, a female warrior who
definitely shifts the dynamic in this not so merry band of mercenaries.
Without spoiling this epic story, the film starts a little slow but it
reaches a violent crescendo near the end as these characters take on the
"big bad". It's a fun journey, especially for fans of the original
that, the characterisation in Berserk The Egg of the King is
sometimes over the top but it actually suits the situations and more
importantly, the story. Just like the over the top characters, the
violence in this film is truly violent that is made more distinct with
the use of 3D computer graphics which results in some wicked and very
red battles. Interestingly enough the battles are integral to the story
and there's some great defining moments for both Guts and Griffith.
Blu-ray, the video quality is impressive and the whole movie almost has
this interesting artwork. The animation techniques are flawless and
merge well with the 3D computer graphics to help flesh out the story.
Audio is equally as good with distinct balances, clear dialogue and some
impressive use of surround sound.
enjoyed the anime series, than I highly suggest you check out the first
movie of this new Berserk trilogy which s definitely aimed at those fans
of the original anime who like a medieval streak through their story.
Consider it Game of Thrones of anime!
