- Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Movie: Part 3: Rebellion review by Chewi
Don't get me wrong, my wife and I loved the original series and appreciated some of its quirkier aspects, but this was off the scale on the WTF meter. I had to read the synopsis on Wikipedia after watching it just to make sure I hadn't missed something. I seemingly hadn't but I still felt like I had wasted my time. The plot was confusing yet dull and ridiculously drawn out. The visuals were impressive but when the rest is so tedious, you just want it to be over. It's easy to see why it's proved so controversial and yet most people seem to love it. I just can't understand why.
