Wow!  And Iíll say it again Ė wow, wow, wow, wow and erm wow!  This is a truly brilliant feat of animation, acting, style and pizzazz.  It is a true labour of magnificent love.

This film answers many of the the questions left on the tip of fanís tongues all over the world after the series ended and this different look at the final episode of the series answers many of them as well as adding some new ones.  The sequences in this film are handled well from the calm of flashbacks to the frantic action of battle and the heartfelt emotion of arguments resolved and relationships healed.  This film also leaves the viewer with a fair share of heart and soul searching as it pins down your own beliefs whilst questioning what you believe are the revelations given by the film.

This is a psychological tour de force.  Religiously and emotionally with touching and violent overtones, the conclusion will leave the viewer never feeling quite the same again.
