It wasn't a bad movie by any stretch. But it did have some narrative issues and massive plot holes that if things had been done differently, a Fourth Impact may have been avoided, which considering how much older (and supposedly wiser) everyone is, it should have been avoided. As mentioned multiple times on the forum, and something I know I've mentioned before, no one explained anything to Shinji, he was just told he wasn't piloting and to never pilot again. He was never told what happened in the 14 years between when he disappeared and when he was brought back from Unit-01. He's not even told that the world was destroyed, or that Misato and Co. aren't with NERV anymore, and that NERV is now the enemy. He's left entirely in the dark, and had they set aside some of their anger and told him enough, perhaps he would not have followed Rei into when NERV attacked the Wunder. And Misato forgetting she egged Shinji on to rescue Rei, and subsequently cause Third Impact, and then blames him entirely by finally listening to her seems to be dodging some of the blame for what happened. None of that has particularly sat well with me.

Well, you can't call something that's incomplete an utter failure until you see it as a whole. Hopefully Final will exceed all expectations and be wonderful.
