This is a recap of the first two seasons with a few original scenes added in to smooth out the transition and cut. Some parts seem rushed as you see them as a montage.
Both the animation and music are on par with the TV shows, as these are mainly recapped movies. Since the movies used the majority of the TV footage, the new scenes were added to match what the TV version was like. So it could not go crazy with the art style like it can with the Akito the Exiled OVAs.
Frankly, these movies feel like a cash grab more than anything. Each film has several tweaks to the storyline, as Taniguchi stated, to give it more of a “what if” scenarios leading to the new film in 2019. I am not a fan of recap theatrical release, no matter how you want to justify them.
I would only recommend these movies if you need a refresher on the TV show, but given a choice, watch the TV show instead and skip these movies. Code Geass contains graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
