>>148774762>are there really people that don't like it?
There are. I'm not one of them but I see where they're coming from.
When you have Shinji Ikari actually pull himself together and save the day the way he did in 2.0, it becomes polarizing. You have those rooting for him and those that can't accept he really took things into his own hands because of who he is (an opinion reinforced further by the next movie.)
To admit, I was thrown off on first watch because I didn't expect it to play out like that, but it was a phenomenal sequence nonetheless. It's just a shame Anno didn't follow up with it. As someone who likes all the Rebuilds I'll admit the general hate for 3.0 is justified. Especially after all the potential 2.0 brought to the table.
