Editorial Reviews

A cult classic from the glory days of anime blazes to life on the big screen in this feature-length sci-fi epic starring Takuya Kimura (Redline, Howl’s Moving Castle)!

The year is 2199. Mankind teeters on the brink of extinction as the Gamilas, a heinous race of alien invaders, wage an endless war for the right to inhabit the Earth. The last hope for humanity lies on the distant planet of Iskander, and the only battleship capable of attempting the journey is the legendary Yamato. Armed with the devastatingly-powerful Wave Motion Cannon, grizzled Captain Okita and the Yamato’s crew venture boldly into the darkest depths of space. The Gamilas attack at every turn, but fallen hero Susumu Kodai and ace pilot Yuki Mori fight side-by-side for the future of their world. Together, these young lovers unlock the secrets of Iskander – only to face a harrowing voyage home that will change their world forever!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Adaptation Of The Original TV Series July 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD lives up to it's expectations. For American fans of Space Battleship Yamato, adapted into Star Blazers at the height of the Star Wars craze circa 1979, there will be no disappointment whatsoever. Being one of those fans that saw the toned down dubbed English version I have been following the series ever since. My background with the series may be more extensive as I have no problem watching the original with sub-titles so take that as you may.

It was with mixed reservations that I finally got to see the December 2010 movie adaptation of my childhood favorite cartoon. Having seen it twice now I can tell you two truisms:

1. It has been worth the wait.
2. The movie was made by fans of the original show.

If you have been a close follower of the show, the first 30 minutes plays such a homage to the original I am almost naming my goosebumps. The story-line, characters, ship, soundtrack, action flow, practically the entire first episode including camera angles, has been beautifully recreated. At around 2 hours to cover the original 26 "Quest To Iscandar" episodes I think this has been a beautiful homage to fans of the original series or it's American counterpart. Wildstar (US) or Shima (JA) still has his growth period but is the central character. The only really changed character is IQ9 whose transformation to the big screen couldn't have been better done. Sane (US) or Sato (JA) even still has his cat and famous "spring water."

The Good: As mentioned above and special effects. IMDB reports 15 million spent on the movie, primarily on special effects. Quite frankly I find that impossible. What I saw, rivaled Avatar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yamato aka StarBlazers comes back to earth ! August 30, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Being a BIG fan for years of the english dubbed cartoon (StarBlazers aka Yamato ) shown in the
USA year ago, I couldn't wait to see this movie when I heard that a live action version was
being made.
The script sticks mostly to the original story plot from the cartoon.
And the actor in the movie are pretty spot on as well to there cartoon counterparts.
Even the CGI effect are better then I thought they would be. Based on American
movie production budgets that would have cost 3 or 4 times as much to have made a movie like this.

Definitely worth buying this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great movie and a great copy! August 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of the "Space Battleship Yamato" animated series known as "Star Blazers" in the United States back in 1978. I've wanted to see a live action version of it and in 2010 they finally made one. The quality and technology of special effects necessary to pull it off has been achieved and it shows on the screen. This movie was shot at a 2.35:1 aspect ratio and they fill it with action from end to end.

The story is based on the original one seen in the TV series of Earth vs the Gamilons. The original characters are there more or less. With that in mind, this is not your father's or grandfather's "Space Battleship Yamato." Some of the differences are interesting, some are shocking. The way it's crafted, this movie can be enjoyed by those who don't know anything about the TV series as well as long time fans.

This copy produced by Sarawak Media Corporation of Malaysia is near perfect. The movie is presented in its full 2.35:1 aspect ratio with its original Japanese dialogue and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. It has English subtitles and they are almost complete. There are 2 or 3 scenes that are missing the caption but it's minor.

This version is far superior to another on being produced on DVD by another company.

My thanks to Sarawak Media Corporation for producing this DVD and LOTO-SURPLUS for selling it at an affordable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yamato, hasshin! January 30, 2014
By Kansuke
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Finally! An official North American DVD release of SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO. I saw this film in the theatre and it lived up to my expectations.

It should be noted, that there will be no English dubbed version. All releases in DVD and BluRay will be in Japanese with English subtitles. This is due to the contract with actor/singer Takuya Kimura (who plays Kodai). No big deal. This is how the film should be viewed.

You can tell this film was made by fans for fans. Although there were some changes, respect was shown to the original material, unlike some reboots/remakes/retellings.

If you want to learn more about this film, and the anime series, check out the website "ourstarblazers.com"

UPDATE: since the previous review was written on the film, here is one for the DVD/BluRay: Audio is clear and crisp, picture quality is excellent. The majority of the extras (as in most cases) are on the BluRay disk. There isn't a lot of extras, but at least the film's trailers are there. And yes, there is an English dub. I am curious what Eleven Arts and Giant Ape did to have been allowed to produce a dubbed version (ref: Takuya Kimura's contract) compared to the previous foreign releases of this film. After listening to the English dub (it's a hit and miss with the voice actors chosen), I still prefer hearing it in Japanese.

After all is said and done, I still give the film and its release four stars.

The movie is pretty well made, acting is a little suspect but I think it is more of a cultural difference than bad acting. Also, the voice over definitely hurts the action/acting. Read more

I was wondering the same thing. If this is a big screen production, why release it in a tv format? That's pretty much a deal breaker right there.
