Not a complete success, in my opinion
12 January 2015 | by justbob1982See all my reviews

Version I saw: UK DVD release (projected)

Actors: 6/10

Plot/script: 4/10

Photography/visual style: 7/10

Music/score: 6/10

Overall: 5/10

In many ways, the Steins;Gate movie bears a lot of comparison to the Haruhi movie, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. Both have the feel of a TV episode extended, or possibly several episodes tacked together. Both revolve around the disappearance of the charismatic, fun-filled main character early in the story, leaving the long-suffering, sardonic love interest as the main character. In both cases, nobody else realizes anything has changed, so the proxy main character is forced to follow the clues - a succession of plot tokens - that integrate each of the supporting cast into events, one by one. In both cases, the plot is complicated by twisty, confusing developments involving time travel and parallel universes.

It's a bold move, taking out the heart of the series like that, but I don't think they really carry it off. The remaining story must be carried by Makise Kurisu, driven by her love for the missing Hououin Kyouma, but... I just wasn't feeling that connection between them. Maybe it has been too long since I saw the series, and the particular dynamic between them had slipped from my memory, but it no longer caught me and carried me through the way it needed to. My affection for the other supporting characters, whom I continue to genuinely like, wasn't enough either, as it turned out.

The panoply of odd camera angles is still there, and added to the title - I mean, "Steins;Gate the Movie: Loading Area of deja vu"? Come on! - successfully evokes Steins;Gate's distinctive brand of studied eccentricity, but one of the things I really liked about the original series was how neatly the time travel plot line was looped into a satisfying conclusion. Not any more. This time, I was simply confused, and although I may be wrong on this, I don't think it was my fault.
