Editorial Reviews

When a powerful new Internet Digimon hatches and begins to consume data at an alarming rate, the Digidestined - kids chosen to save the digital world - must put an end to the destruction before the damage becomes irreversible and worldwide communication halts forever. As computer-based missiles are launched, and a wayward Digimon kidnaps the Digidestined, only the combined efforts of a worldwide network of kids and a new group of "Digidestined" can rescue the others and stop global disaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie! December 9, 2000
By Rene
Format:VHS Tape
Three great short films from Japan based on the popular series come together in edited form to make 90 minutes of entertainment. And having Kari, one of the characters, narate the story gives the appearance of one story, which adds to the strength of this movie
The first movie is approximately 10-15 minutes long and details what happened four years before the first season of the show. Tai and his sister Kari see a digi egg exit from their computer screen and a small Digimon is born. Kari becomes attached to this creature. Eventually, the Digimon digivolves to Greymon and protects the city from Parrotmon.
The first movie has it's moment. Young Kari is adorable and even in young Tai we already begin to see Tai the leader of the Digidestined that we see in the first season of Digimon. The friendship between Kari and Agumon also adds a touching element to the story. It's almost heartbreaking when, after the Digimon disappears, Kari yells out, "Don't you wanna play with me anymore?"
We fast forward four years later. The second movie takes place after the first season of the show. It's unclear exactly when. Izzy, one of the Digidestined, joins with Tai to try and defeat this strange Digimon who is invading the internet. With the help of their Digimon, Agumon and Tentomon, they try to battle this strange Digimon. But this Digimon keeps digivolving at an accelerated rate. So Izzy contacts the other Digidestined and manages to get Matt and TK to help along with their Digimon...Patamon and Gabumon. Agumon and Gabumon are able to digivolve to their Mega level...and eventually join together and defeat this evil Digimon....or so they think...
The second movie has a lot of action...but every few minutes, the action goes down a bit so we can have some humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Omega! January 28, 2001
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
Digimon: The Movie is a segment of three movies, all relased seperately in Japan. In movie 1, before season one (the original airings on telivision), Tai (Taichi) and Kari (Hikari), two special characters, meet Koromon at ages 7 and 4. Tai is 7, Kari is 4. They meet a special Digimon who turns out to be Tai's partner in season 1. This movie was short and to me, pretty un-interesting, but I loved it anyhow!
Movie 2, aka Part 2, takes place after season 1. Izzy (Koushiro) discovers a DigiEgg on the computer. It hatches in to a baby digimon, and begins to eat up data on the internet. Soon, people from all over the world are watching the battle between Diaboromon (strongest level of digimon) on their computers. Even Yolei (Miyako) from season 2 at a young age appears, sending e-mails along with other kids to Tai, Izzy, Matt (Yamato), and T.K. (Takeru). Eventually, they beat Diaboromon.
Movie 3 takes place during season 2. Davis (Daisuke), Yolei, Cody (Iori), T.K. and Kari are hanging out at a beach. Davis, Yolei, and Cody are all new Digidestined, mind you. They meet Willis and his Digimon Terriermon. He had twin Digimon, Terriermon and Lopmon, but Lopmon ran away and grew up confused and evil. Now Lopmon, aka "Endigomon", tells Willis to "go back", as Willis comes from Colorado. WIllis created Diaboromon when he wanted three Digimon instead of two. But, when he made Diaboromon, a virus infected him and so started movie 2. But, they cut out HALF OF THIS MOVIE in the American version. Endigomon originally captures the old Digidestined in order to find Willis. THEY CUT THIS OUT! HALF OF THE MOVIE! But, it was so cool, my grandparents even liked it! "Kids in America" by Len is playing during the credits. PRODIGIOUS MOVIE! I also have a movie clip of the cut scenes in Japanese. PRODIGIOUS MOVIE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Digimon: The Movie December 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
In 1991, the makers of Tamgotchi came out with a simular device called a Digimon, a digital monster. Five years later, Pokemon popped up. Many will say Digimon was a copy, but they just haven't heard of it because of less merchandising (Pokemon has actual planes and cars!) Pokemon came out with a TV show, and so did Digimon. Pokemon was very popular and came out with four movies so far. Digimon came out with this one. When I used to like Pokemon, I counted down till the first movie. I was terribly disappointed. Digimon was so cool, I decided I would get it on video as soon as it came out. It had history on the Digimon and Digidestined, and was really funny, too. I loved it a lot. I hope Digimon becomes a bit more popular and they make a sequal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Officialy the best movie I've ever seen February 1, 2002
By A Customer
...My favorite movies are Twice Upon A Time, Ducktales The Movie, and Pokemon The Movie 2000. And then there is this one.
It's SO COOL!!!
As many people know, this movie is from 3 seperate OVAs (which are Japanese movies that last an hour or less) that came out and took place before the series started, six months after the 1st season, and sometime during the second season (like several weeks after they defeated the Digimon Emperor.)
The only bad thing about this movie is that they completely re-wrote the script and rearranged the scenes so it looks like all 3 OVAs are linked together, and they cut out more than 40 minutes of the original films. Let's name a few of the parts that were cut/edited.
1. Tai, Matt and the other old digidestined were kidnapped by Kokomon in the 3rd movie.
2. Kokomon was not really attacked by the virus.
3. In the first movie, Tai and Kari didn't know, or were not well aquainted with the other digidestined.
4. Izzy didn't get an email from Willis, just some other kid.
5. Davis, Yolei and Cody, hitchhiked all the way to America.
6. Terriermon's original in-trainig name is Gummimon.
7. 'Kokomon' was dancing earlier on in the 3rd movie, not at the end (which would have made a lot more sense.)
8. Willis's name is originally Wallace. He also really lives in New York.
9. In the first movie, Koromon and Greymon never talked.
10. I'm not Indonesian, I'm American.
To find out about other stuff that they cut out, go to websites like ... or .... Anyway it's still a good movie. And for those of you who wonder why Agumon was so big in the first movie, I'm not going to tell. They made a 4th movie to Digimon which has Ken in it.
