Space Battleship Yamato Movie DVD

A film adaptation of the 1974 anime TV series Space Battleship Yamato. The year is 2199 and after five years of attack by an alien race known as Gamilas, Earth lies ravaged by radiation bombs. The remnants of humanity have fled underground with only 73 days until the radiation will drive humanity to extinction.

But the Earth Defense Force plan a counter-offensive and the crew of the space battleship Yamato are sent out on a journey to the planet Iscandar to acquire a device that can heal their ravaged planet.

Directed by Takashi Yamazaki, the film release of Space Battleship Yamato debuted at number 1 on the Japanese box-office, knocking a certain Harry Potter off his throne.  Reviews have been mixed, the Hollywood Reporter stated that the movie had a "sleek futurist look without losing sight of the ‘70s illustration style" of the original anime series.  Christoph Mark of The Daily Yomiuri said the film "lacked gravity" and criticized the production design as too reminiscent of the Battlestar Galactica remake.  There's always one!
