Movie Reviews

Buy Saint Seiya instead of this version
gerenriq | San Juan, Puerto Rico | 01/03/2004

"This version is downright disrespectful to the original series called "Saint Seiya", which is being released by ADV. This version is poorly scripted, poorly acted, and poorly edited. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE."
Horrible U.S edition of Saint Seiya.

"As a Saint Seiya fan, I am utterly disgusted with what DIC did to the Saint Seiya/Knights of the Zodiac series. Not only is the original music cut, but the English dubbing is simply horrible. The voice-actors are mediocre but the dubbed script was unacceptably bad. If DIC insist on a English dub, at least they can put more effort in making a decent script."
And You Ran. You Ran So Far Away.

""Saint Seiya" is a classic. "Knights of the Zodiac" is not. And that's unfortunate. The original materials had a lot of potential to be a hit. It could've been the next "Dragonball Z", or even the next "Pokemon". But, no. DIC's reckless butchering made this show terrible to watch, with its rewritten dialogue, heavily edited fights, and mediocore music. I hate to say this, because edited or not, this show is still "Saint Seiya" to me, but please -- stay away from this. The only thing that was remotely good about "Knights of the Zodiac" is the theme song, a cover of A Flock of Seagull's "I Ran (So Far Away)". If you are even slightly interested in "Knights of the Zodiac", then do yourself a favor and get the original "Saint Seiya" DVDs. You won't regret it."
This version sucks
