Chevalier’s review published on Letterboxd:
Legend of the Galactic Heroes is this fat space opera filled with political intrigue, comple characters, and a lot of spaceship battles that play like very detailed chess games. This film is the introduction to this universe, so at barely 1 hour it can't help to feel a bit stuffed with information. Neverless, because of how well structured the whole thing is, the movie hits the right spot between the action and the characters. One of the greatest cult franchises that has ever come out of Japan, or anywhere else.
