  1. It's all the thrill of watching other people play Uno.
  2. A vigorously cross-marketed product, with comics, collectable cards, games and a television series.

    Shallow and repetitive.

    There's nothing inspiring about Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie, unless you count the way it compels kids to continue to support the "Yu-Gi-Oh" franchise.

    No doubt its small fans are thrilled, but even young kids will have to be pretty undemanding to enjoy this mess.
  6. 10
    Impossibly dull form of niche-marketed entertainment.

    A shabby, joyless, 90-minute slab of "advertainment."

    Its so awesome how they break the rules they're such gangsters. They're just like " Lets play Blue Eyes" but they can't so they throw the rules right out the window and that's EPICNESSSS!!! Who cares If Yu-Gi has the stupidest hair ever, that just makes this movie more gangster. Expand

    I liked how all they did was bring out their strongest monsters and trash-talk each-other into battle! It doesn't stop there, the movie has merchandise! Yes, they sell cards! This means that if you enjoyed the movie like I did you can experience the magic at home with your friends, Somehow I was entertained even though I don't watch the anime. Expand

    The plot is cliche and the characters are wooden, but the cool thing about Yu-Gi-Oh is seeing how creatively designed some of the creatures are.

    Manages to be just as bad as the anime itself.

    It's a god-awful movie. I can't belive some moron used my name and said it was good. I used to be a ravid Yu-Gi-Oh fan, but after realizing how lame, pahtetic, and dorky the show and game was, I almost puked when I learened about this movie. Absoloutley dreadful. "Straight up for the best movie of the year?" Who gave that guy prozac? Expand
