Great visual... bad dub,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neon Genesis Evangelion - Resurrection (Director's Cut, Episodes 21-23) (DVD)
I'm an old-school Eva fan... I watched it all on VHS with english dub. And the old English dub was AWESOME. This one mediocre. Tiffany (Aska) did a pretty cool job, but otherwise... it just doesn't have the same magic.
The new visuals are spectacular. I would buy the DVD just watch it with the mute button on the whole time. So much is clearer; there is a clearer progression in many scenes that were partially edited before.
Alternatively... this version is not as clean as the previous edit. When I watch eva on a regular basis, I'll still watch the old edit because it's cleaner, simpler, more graceful. But I'm glad to have this one for the additional scenes. They add alot of background information and further understanding; they're also much more synchronous with the presentation of Instrumentality in the last two episodes and the movie.
The director's cut may not be the best thing for people who haven't watched Eva twelve times and memorized everything, but for us who have... it's great.
