5/10: A Rather Uninspired Effort with Very Little New to Offer
Sunday, September 30, 2018

I was pretty disappointed in this one, to be honest. The "Naruto" movies are getting pretty formulaic at this point, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as long as it's executed well and brings SOME new stuff to the table. This film didn't really do that. Most of it is stuff we have seen before, and a lot of the newer things about it weren't executed all that well.There isn't much to complain about on a technical level. The animation is consistently good for most of the film, and there are some pretty well done battle scenes, particularly the explosive opening with the sky ninjas attacking The Leaf Village. They have even gotten better with their use of CGI. It was a bit eyesorish in a few places, but for the most part, the CGI is much better integrated than it was in the last film. The music was also pretty solid.In terms...

5/10: Like a filler episode with a bigger budget and preachy moral
Tuesday, February 16, 2010

I looked forward to the first two Naruto movies when the series was still fresh to me but now, the movies seem like a string of fillers with a bigger budget, with largely unremarkable stories and always a preachy moral. Typically, the only scenes I enjoy in the movies are when more of Konoha's cast of shinobis are used in battle. Honestly, the show might be named "Naruto" but enough of him already. Enough of the unrequited bromance between him and Sasuke too. And I would like to see the women be more useful. On the rare occasion they get to kick butt, they're not even good at it. Hmm, this has turned into a QQ post about the Naruto series. I don't have much else to say about the movie though. The Leaf Village gets attacked and we do get to see some of its defenders do their thing, but those scenes are woefully sparse and...

4/10: A Very Basic Film
Wednesday, July 14, 2021

If you like Naruto, then this film is worth watching as a long filler episode. If you are not a fan of the series, then this movie is just fluff. The plot is very basic and the villain has no serious motivations. They don't explain where the Sky Village ninjas have been hiding all of these years before the attack and they don't say where they've gone afterwards. The Zero-tailed beast was just a one off for the movie, but actually was a complete let down.The animation is solid and the fight scenes are entertaining, but nothing new is revealed. All in all this movie is not nearly as interesting as most of the regular Naruto Shippuden tv episodes

5/10: Movie Review

Lame generic villain..no depth in character + Weak plot close to no more than a filler, no complexity, no twists...way too predictable you just know that Naruto is gonna win because he's Naruto..no tension the movie fails to keep me hooked and invested in the action
