Inspired by Hajime Isayama’s popular manga series, the first of this two-part live-action horror-fantasy finds teen friends Eren (Haruma Miura), Armin (Kanata Hongo) and Mikasa (Kiko Mizuhara) wondering about the world beyond a protective wall, built after a devastating attack a century earlier.
Their sense of security is shattered when huge, man-eating Titans break through the defensive structure, once again threatening humanity with extinction.
ATTACK ON TITAN: END OF THE WORLD (Part 2)
2015, FUNimation Entertainment, 100 min, Japan, Dir: Shinji Higuchi
Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403
Showtimes for Part 2:
Thursday, October 22 – 7:30 PM
Sunday, October 25 – 7:30 PM
The apocalyptic horror-fantasy reaches its thrilling conclusion a few years after the Titans first breached the outer defensive wall; the creatures’ ferocious attacks have steeled the resolve of Eren, Mikasa and Armin to defeat them, and though the odds are against mankind, the Titans have a weak spot.
Like the first installment of ATTACK ON TITAN, this fast-moving film is darker (and gorier) than its source material, and visually impressive despite a budget far below that of Hollywood blockbusters.
