In the earliest battles against the monstrous Angels, young Eva pilots Shinji and Rei were forced to carry humanity's hopes on their shoulders. Now, with the deadly onslaught of the Angels escalating and the apocalyptic Third Impact looming, Shinji and Rei find their burden shared by two new Eva pilots, the fiery Asuka and the mysterious Mari. Maneuvering their enormous Eva machines into combat, the four young souls fight desperately to save mankind from the heavens - but will they be able to save themselves? -- (C) FUnimiation

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like a surly teen pilot, you, too, might find yourself bored and muttering, "Honestly, maybe the fate of humanity and the world isn't important to me, either.''"
‑ Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe
"For the most part, this is the kind of immersive fanboy experience that doesn't suffer wandering attention spans."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"An exhilarating adventure that offers compelling characters, a wonderfully imaginative story and dazzling special effects. Newbies might feel slightly perplexed, though."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"The laser blasts and shimmering force fields in these contests are less violent than the repressed feelings of sensitive Shinji."
‑ Brian Miller, L.A. Weekly
"Evangelion 2.0 will undoubtedly confound some viewers with its jam-packed narrative and jargon-heavy dialogue but the intricately designed, hyper-kinetic visuals more than compensate, especially when seen at the scale they deserve."
‑ , Toronto Star
"It's strictly for the fans, who will furiously parse the changes in the narrative (including a new female pilot) and the nonsensical stew of philosophical and religious symbolism."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"Sets the stage for new, apocalyptic changes in the next "Rebuild" feature, and they appear to be the kind of changes fans have been waiting on for years."
‑ Simon Abrams, Slant Magazine
