About Attack on Titan The Movie Part 1 Blu-ray/DVD + UV
Attack on Titan Part 1 reimagines the story in this live action movie.
When the Titans first attacked, life for mankind was forever changed. Fearing the massive man-eating humanoids, survivors constructed three enormous walls for protection. From that point on, humanity lived safely behind the walls”for the time being. A century later, life is peaceful.
Eren and his friends live inside the walls, yearning to explore beyond the borders they've always known. But the opportunity comes sooner than expected when a Colossal Titan appears above the wall. With a single kick the barricade is pierced, allowing a swarm of titans to pour in and devour their newly exposed prey. Witnessing the devastation, Eren and his friends vow to destroy the man-eating terrors. The future looks bleak, but there's more to Eren than meets the eye: he may be humanity's last hope against extinction.

Ratings & Reviews
Non-spoiler review for both parts!
by Eric P. -
Most of the criticism against the movie version of ‘Attack on Titan’ is unfair, particularly when people can’t stop comparing it against the anime/manga. Based on its own merits, this is actually a far more kickass movie than most people are willing to recognize. The performances are enough (Hange’s actress stole the show, clearly having had a blast playing the character), the Titan visuals are impressive (especially now where most movie-goers seem to desire practical over digital effects), the overall story is meticulously plotted in which each non-wasted scene or bit of dialogue is interconnected with each other, and everything rounds out to a kick-ass climax! If I had one nitpick with the movie version—why was it made as 2 movies? They were an hour-and-a-half long each, and I can’t help but think how easily everything could’ve been edited together as a 3-hour epic. Regardless, I’m just glad I’m about to have this criminally-underappreciated movie adaptation in my library at all!
So bad it's good?
I will start off by saying, this is not a good film. The acting is mostly bad, the visuals leave much to be desired, the characters are one note, and the writing can be just terrible. If you're a big fan of the source material, this will do nothing more than anger you if you were looking for a faithful adaptation.
This film though, is one of those "So bad, it's good" type of movies. I watched this with my friends and we had a blast laughing at every stupid thing that happened, which was most of the film. The writing and acting make for some true comedy gold.
I can't recommend this seriously, but if you and your friends are looking to watch something to laugh at and make fun of... then this would be a good choice. (Also, the second movie is just as bad... if not worse.)
A great original retelling of a great original anime
by Sebastian (aka Soren The Hero) -
Attack On Titan The Movie is a criminally under-appreciated masterpiece buried under the unfair vitriolic responses from fanboys who don't understand the context of the film just because they wanted this to be exactly like the anime. While it is true that the story in the film takes several creative changes, including the changing of the setting and exclusion of several characters, the truth is that the movie understands the source material perfectly enough to retell it in an original fashion. Taking several examples from the manga and expanding on plot points that season 2 will eventually point out, Shinji Higuchi's Japanese interpretation of my favorite anime of all time not only does justice to the anime I love, but provides an alternative vision of it in an original but still familiar way. This goes for both parts of the film, but both feel like one great epic masterpiece, and I cannot express how much I love them both.
Overall rating for both films: 10 out of 10!
Not bad, not bad at all

Shipping was great with the product. RightStuf always seems to know how to ship their products.
The movie itself had a different storyline. I didn't mind the difference. I also didn't mind how quickly everything went. It moves really fast folks.
Eren and the rest of the actors seem to do a decent job of keeping the movie alive.
If you like blood, action, mayhem, and crazy decisions, then this is the movie for you. Try not to compare it to the anime, because you will always be disappointed.
