  1. Good or bad, it's either a must-see in your house, or not even on the radar screen.
  2. Of course, there's little else of interest about Pokemon beyond the consumption factor. Buy more.
  3. 40
    The feature has some lovely effects.
  4. 30
    No better than the first.
  5. I could make a joke here about the new Pokemon movie.
  6. Avoid this movie unless a) your child has refused to eat until you take him or her, or b) your house is being fumigated to kill an infestation of mosquitoes with the West Nile virus.

    this movie is a great improvement from the first movie and it achieves what i believe none of the other Pokemon movies achieve it fells epic.this movie is a great improvement from the first movie and it achieves what i believe none of the other Pokemon movies achieve it fells epic. once again the animation and action are great and the plot is a lot better aside from the whole power of one thing which doesn't really hold up on inspection. it does also loose points for it's villain, terrible choice of pop songs and the anti collecting message which is even more head scratching than the anti fighting message from the first movie Expand

    What people don't seem to realise is that THIS MOVIE WAS AIMED AT POKEMON FANS AND KIDS. At the time what kid wasn't a Pokemon fan? What people don't seem to realise is that THIS MOVIE WAS AIMED AT POKEMON FANS AND KIDS. At the time what kid wasn't a Pokemon fan? Now of course as a movie it is relatively balanced although you can't help but think this is all extremely coincedental. I mean they just HAPPEN to crash onto an island due to a storm (that just appears out of no where) and the island HAPPENS to be having a festival one and Ash HAPPENS to be the chosen one destined to save it. It all seems blatently set up. Otherwise the animation is great for the time as is the soundtrack. Pokemon fans will adore it and others....you may want to give it a try but I wouldn't really recommend it. Expand
