I'm *really* looking forward to the US release of this.  I saw the first one during its limited release in theatres, and can't wait to see more Eva on the big screen.  I'm glad to here that this one is more of a departure from the series, because while I dearly love the TV show (it's in my all time top 5, easily), I also felt the first feature was a little too much of a retread.  It reminds me of how I felt about the new Fullmetal Alchemist.  At first it seemed like a retread that had me thinking "This is cool, but was it necessary?" but then it morphed into something so different from the original (in a good way) that it had me hanging on every word.

While I enjoyed the movie I didn't feel that smooth was a word I'd use to describe it, unless I was talking about animation. During the first half I kept on feeling that certain moments were being awkwardly levered in as fanservice for fans of the TV series. This combined with the high angel count made the movie feel as if was constantly alternating between linger and rush modes. Not until around the aquarium visit (give or take) did it feel as if the movie had found it's rhythm.
