Formars are quite interesting.
2 November 2016 | by (Uruguay) – See all my reviews

Well, I never saw the anime, or read the manga, that I heard was number one in Japan, therefor it is very popular... But I must say that this Live Action I liked it. Finally the Japanese learned how to make nice special effects, but I think it could be better and upgraded to more modern CGI ... it is likely to be a TV movie as almost all Live Action movies are, so I can let pass the TerraFormars design.

I really kind of liked it, so I recommend it.

I'll have to see the anime or read the manga, to compare and make an opinion.

The worst: it is very long and goes on useless moments in some scenes. There were no fair presentation of the characters. The best: good story, original, good performances (a rarity in Japanese actors whom are almost always overreacting expressions) and nice special effects.

8/10 Watch at your own risk ... We are all critics, but must see to give a critic.
