Space Battleship Yamato DVD and Blu-ray Short Review

4.5 Stars of Awesomeness, Space Battleship Yamato Lives.

This a live action version of the very popular animé series from 1974 of the same name.
Yamato cover2194 Captain Okita (Tsutomu Yamazaki, Departures) finds himself and his armada near the orbit of Mars, as Earth has come under fire of an alien race that knows nothing about, apart from they use massive meteors as weapons to bombard the surface of the planet and cover the surface with radiation.

They fire on the enemy but little happens; they have underestimated the power of these aliens, as they return fire the Earth ships are torn asunder as they try to flee, Captain Mamoru Kodai (Shin'ichi Tsutsum, A Lone Scalpel) contacts Okita and tells him to get back to Earth as he is about to put his ship in harms way, sacrificing his ship and crew so someone can tell the story of what happened that day.
From the outset this space battle opens your eyes as the graphics are awesome competing at the same level as any Hollywood production. It's a frantic battle and in Blu-ray you don't know which way to look.

Available on DVD and Blu-ray Now.
