  1. Brimming with values that should serve its young audience well: altruism, friendship, self-sacrifice, responsibility.
  2. Clearly, interest has waned - both because children grow up and because they move on. It might be time for the folks behind this particular fad to do the same.
  3. Better for several reasons. First, they've jazzed up the animation. The backgrounds appear to be digital, and they are striking. The story is also less violent and combative.
  4. Gallops along at a quick, easygoing clip. Grown-ups may have to scrub the sugar from their frontal lobes. But it's not about them, is it? Never was. Never will be.
  5. Kids who love Pokemon movies are no doubt going to see this movie, and they'll have a blast watching it. Very soon they will become older and more sensible and understand how terrible these movies are.

    Any richness in the drawing of the backgrounds only underscores the weirdly flat, affectless renderings of the characters moving through them.
  7. 0
    Crudely animated, badly dubbed, incomprehensible, boring -- and headache-inducing -- attempt to wring a few more yen and dollars out of a thoroughly spent franchise.

    it's not bad it's just ok and to be honest it will seem a lot better if you watch it after seeing pokemon 4. but it could have been so muchit's not bad it's just ok and to be honest it will seem a lot better if you watch it after seeing pokemon 4. but it could have been so much better and considering that this film is the last of that era of Pokemon it probably should have been. check it out though pokemon fans will mostly enjoy Expand

    Despite a few surprises, this Pokemon movie can get messy.
