YesAsia Editorial Description

The landmark 1974 animated series Space Battleship Yamato finally gets a live-action treatment nearly four decades after its premiere, and what better director to take that job than Yamazaki Takashi? A leading special effects wizard before becoming a filmmaker, Yamazaki has made a successful career out of seamlessly combining computer-generated spectacle and genuinely touching human drama in films like the Always - Sunset on Third Street series and Ballad. In addition to directing, Yamazaki also oversaw the groundbreaking computer-generated special effects, which is featured in 80% of the film to convincingly bring the Yamato world to life.

Leading the epic space adventure is SMAP member/Asian superstar Kimura Takuya (Hero) as the heroic Kodai Susumu, who commands the titular space battleship into a war against a powerful enemy in outer space. Joining Kimura is a star-studded cast that includes Kuroki Meisa (Crows Zero), Yanagiba Toshiro (Bayside Shakedown), Nishida Toshiyuki (The Magic Hour), Maiko (Yama no Anata), Yamazaki Tsutomu (Departures), and Ikeuchi Hiroyuki (Ip Man). One of the highest-grossing Japanese films of 2010, Space Battleship Yamato is an exciting sci-fi spectacular for audiences of all ages!

In the year 2199, Earth has become a wasteland after five years of radiation attacks from an unseen alien enemy called the Gamilons. Even though survivors have remained safe under ground, the radiation is slowly beginning to reach them. One of the survivors is Kodai Susumu (Kimura Takuya), who picks up a mysterious device one day while hunting for scrap metal. After discovering a map to a planet inside the device, the military sends out its last battleship - the Yamato - to the planet in the hopes that it'll be the key to save humanity. Kodai, a former soldier himself, joins the Yamato crew and quickly proves to be a worthy team member. With only a year left before the end of Earth, what will the Yamato crew find at the end of their long and perilous journey?

    Professional Review of "Space Battleship Yamato (DVD) (Collector's Edition) (First Press Limited Edition) (Japan Version)"

    September 6, 2011

    This professional review refers to Space Battleship Yamato (DVD) (2-Disc Edition) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
    Japanese Space Battleship Yamato based upon the classic 1974 anime television series, hit the big screens in 2010 as a massive blockbuster release, boasting an all star cast and extensive special effects work to bring its epic off world skirmishes to life. Fittingly, the film was helmed by effects maestro turned director Yamazaki Takashi, who previously showed a commercial yet winningly human touch with the likes of Always - Sunset on Third Street and Ballad. Taking on the lead role of daredevil commander Kodai was popular actor and SMAP member Kimura Takuya (Hero), with support from Kuroki Meisa (Crows Zero), Yanagiba Toshiro (Bayside Shakedown), Nishida Toshiyuki (The Magic Hour), Maiko (Yama no Anata), Yamazaki Tsutomu (Departures), and Ikeuchi Hiroyuki (Ip Man).

    Set in 2199, the film begins with Earth on the verge of destruction after having been bombarded with toxic meteorite attacks from the Gamilons, an as yet unseen vicious alien enemy. With most of the population cowering in underground shelters, a decision is made to offer the dying world hope by following a map in a strange device found by scavenger Kodai Susumu (Kimura Takuya), which seems to offer a means of salvation on the distant planet Iskandar. Ex-space fighter ace Kodai joins the mission himself, boarding the mighty ship the Yamato along with veteran captain Okita (Yamazaki Tsutomu) and former love interest pilot Yuki (Kuroki Meisa), armed with a powerful wave cannon to help them through enemy territory.

    Space Battleship Yamato is impressive right from the start, kicking off with some awesome scenes of an earth fleet being defeated by the Gamilons, the special effects work and CGI easily comparable with that of most Hollywood films, despite costing only a fraction of the same amount. Yamazaki Takashi was certainly a great choice of director, and he does an incredible job of bringing the anime to life, authentically recreating its look and feel without slavishly sticking to a cartoonish feel. The production design is similarly top notch, with some gorgeous visuals and epic space backdrops, and although apparently some 80% of the film features computer work, it looks convincing throughout, with only a few shot during the last act on Iskandar being a touch shoddy. This is only a minor criticism however, and thanks to some imaginative handling from Yamazaki, the film is every inch the glossy science fiction blockbuster.

    The film also echoes the anime and benefits from a real air of adventure, with some bombastic set pieces and fast paced action as Kodai and his pilots take on the Gamilons in a series of thrilling dog fights. The film is heavy on scenes of mass destruction, with the wave cannon being a breathtaking beast of a weapon, making for some of the more memorable space explosions in recent science fiction cinema. Whilst a lot of these sequences are a little reminiscent of other genre films, given the influential status of the anime this is perhaps forgivable, and Yamazaki does give the proceedings a feel which is both classical and modern at the same time, making it one of the rare examples of a well-judged revisioning or update.

    There's no denying that at nearly two and a half hours the film does flirt with being overstretched, though for the most part it gallops along at a good speed, with the human melodrama largely being at a respectable level. Unfortunately, during the final act it does take over, and although the last half hour still works in some spectacular action it does get dragged down a little by a variety of death speeches and needless flashbacks, something which may seem rather unnecessary to non-Japanese audiences. Still, this is nowhere near enough to cause a real problem, mainly since Kimura Takuya is charismatic and likeable in the lead, giving Kodai just the right balance of angst, heroism and derring-do. The rest of the cast also acquit themselves well, and although most are reduced to fairly stock roles, Kuroki Meisa is suitably appealing as the tough though cute Yuki, and Yamazaki Tsutomu entertainingly gruff as the stoic captain.

    As a result, Space Battleship Yamato is easily one of the year's best and biggest Japanese blockbusters, offering awesome visuals and thrilling science fiction action. A successful adaptation and updating of the classic anime, it should please fans and newcomers alike, and is as good as, if not better than, anything in the genre produced by Hollywood of late.

    SBY fans, rejoice! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    "Space Battleship Yamato" is a faithful adaptation of the famously groundbreaking anime series. Like the animated SBY movies that preceded it, this live-action film compresses a lot of events from the long-running TV series into a relatively short time, which leaves the uninitiated breathlessly trying to keep up. The planet Earth is under attack from an alien race and the only hope for defeating the attackers lies on a distant planet. The Yamato is dispatched to that destination, with the mysterious aliens hot on their trail.

    The film's scenes of aerial combat are thrilling, resembling those found in the Star Wars films and Battlestar Galactica series. The diverse personalities of the film's large cast are fleshed out successfully. This enables the human interest elements of the story to be effective. Consequently, the movie isn't all flash; its tale of heroism and sacrifice comes alive.

    SBY does tend to milk its key moments of heroism. Multiple times during the movie, one of the central characters chooses to sacrifice his life in order to buy time for his colleagues to escape from a dire situation. The colleagues inevitably waste some of this precious time by pausing to ponder the greatness of the sacrificial act. The first time this occurs, the viewer shrugs. By the third time, the viewer is thinking, "Get moving, you dopes!"

    In films like "Hero" and "Love & Honor" I've been impressed with the acting chops of Kimura Takuya. Here, however, I couldn't help thinking that this was a pop star pretending to be the battleship's acting commander. Then again, perhaps Kimura was just being true to the source; the anime character Kodai also seemed like a pop star pretending to be a commander. The rest of the cast capably apes the characters from the animated series. "Space Battleship Yamato" delivers solid entertainment.
