Review of Steven Universe: The Movie
by Dee S
Posted on July 22nd, 2020
Neutral -
Overall Rating
(this is a very in-universe review, since it does follow the first five seasons of the show. apologies in advance.) well, i thought the diamonds suddenly fawning over steven was a bit off-putting. and apparently they forgot about the last time they were on earth after a climactic point in the movie. i mean, theres a point why theyre in this movie, but theres that bit of plot amnesia. oh well! other than the plot is driven by spinel, a new character who has a history with pink diamond. makes sense, since pink diamonds screwed over so many people. spinel shows up with a injector with poison to poison (er, um, pink lava-fy?) earth (actually just beach city) and a gem rejuvinator that resets all the main crystal gems and spinel and disables steven. it takes a while to get into spinels backstory and motivations. yet how she obtains the poison and gem rejuvenator is left unanswered by the narrative.   the whole movie is about trying to get the main crystal gems and spinel (who i found super annoying prior to her backstory being revealed) to remember who they are on earth. not about the other formerly corrupted gems getting used to not being corrupted and acclimating to their village in beach city, nothing about stevens adventures in space (alluded to specifically at the start of this movie), nothing about lars adventures post-space, just a big amnesia plot/disaster plot/plot where steven uses his compassion to stop the antagonist from doing awful things. maybe all that will be expanded upon in future seasons. but okay, movie. (i also wouldve taken a “lars adventures in space” movie as well.) the movies self-aware at times and it doesnt need the reset sapphire for its self-awareness (e.g. peridot freaking out over touching said gem rejuvenator possibly resetting her character development). other than that, i found the movie and the path it chose to go down a huge disappointment, even if the songs are okay. and the very ending of this movie treads into “dexter is a lumberjack”/“bran is king” et. al. weirdness. the movie didnt need that ending. it couldve ended, like, a minute earlier and it would be okay.
