Gathering some reviews from today:
"An uneven but genuinely thrilling and moving mess with its heart in the right place. The Rebuild of Evangelion movies finally culminate in the appropriately convoluted and gratifyingly peaceful Thrice Upon a Time
- Gretchen Felker-Martin of Fanbyte
"EVANGELION 3.0+1.0: THRICE UPON A TIME
is my favorite film of 2021 so far. It’s dense with text and subtext, it’s deeply moving, and its got really damn good horrifying giant android action."
- Justin Harrison of The Spool
"Evangelion 1.0+3.0 Thrice Upon a Time
isn’t just a fitting end to the new films, but to Evangelion as a whole and Anno Hideaki's relationship to it."
- Siddhant Adlakha of Polygon
(TLed from Portuguese) "Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: The Hope
is an ending that echoes motifs from the original series and also from the masterpiece The End of Evangelion
, but now, firmly nailing a conclusion."
- Leonardo 'Kitsune' Camargo of NerdBunker
(THIS ONE HAS SPOILERS
Seems like the CGI usage and fanservice are the primary gripes for the film which isn't new, but these are all positive reviews.
