This review of the Netflix anime film The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light does contain a spoiler alert.

Anime fans, it’s here! The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light is out on Netflix. This film is the second movie based on the manga and anime series – with a running time of one hour and twenty minutes this film is one you shouldn’t miss. 

Directed by Takayuki Hamana at Studio Deen, The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light is the latest anime movie based on The Seven Deadly Sins manga. The film was a huge hit in Japan and soon after its release Netflix sealed a deal to bring it worldwide on our screens. Now fans can witness the aftermath of the Holy War!

The movie takes place after Humans, Goddesses, and Fairies, with Seven Deadly Sins’ help, wins the “Holy War” against the Demons. Regaining peace after the battle doesn’t last long though. There is a new threat, which means all the deadly sins must reunite to fight against it. The story is meant to be a love story between Meliodas and Elixabeht, but it is heavily focused on Meliodas and Zeldris. There are four main battles, which makes this film action-packed and exciting.

This film is full of magic, demons, fairies, giants, epic battle scenes, so what is there not to like? In my opinion, nothing. This film is entertaining, engaging, and quick to understand and follow, even if you haven’t seen the previous films or aren’t familiar with the series.

The voice-over actors have done a brilliant job, the animation is good, to a high standard and the soundtrack is not overwhelming, it compliments the animation very well. The storyline has some good plot twists – Spoiler Alert: the great plot twist where the real enemy is the supreme Deity. However, I do not feel they took advantage of her being the villain. Also, it really only takes Meliodas and Zeldris to beat her. The Demon King required the strength of all the sins and Elizabeth and beat him, so considering that the Supreme Deity and Demon King have the same strength it shouldn’t have been that easy to beat her.  

To sum it up, if you’re a big fan I’m sure you will love this film and it will be a roller-coaster of emotions and give you a sense of closure. If you’re not a fan, new to the genre, or looking for something new to watch I’d give these films a chance. I highly recommend them.
