To sum up, Blood Prison has all the good things from Naruto and the other movies. It has the awesome concepts of the series. It has all the characters fighting like the Will of Fire. And it has the Message we can all stand behind from Road to Ninja. And, as a side note, THE ANIMATION WAS GODLY!!! It's a fun watch even if you aren't a fan of the series. Highly recommend to everyone. I hope this helps your decision.
This movie added a new element to Naruto but still kept all of its epicness this is the first movie we get to see with Naruto in sage mode and one of my personal pet peeves is that gamabunta fights to and in my personal feel every fight is better with a frog;) This is the first time mystery is really added to Naruto in a good way. We also get to see killer bee in this and the rakage the opening scene its self is will drag u in
aside from how amazing the movie is it came two days early and in perfect condition.I suggest u go out and buy a copy now,this is just one of those movies you have to own
The quality is pretty good. There is no English audio, as expected. The subtitles can be a bit confusing, as they don't always separate one character's statement from the next very clearly, but it really shouldn't cause much of a problem.
As well, there is a very humorous extra short story, concerning Naruto's second attempt at the Chunin exam, and how he messes that up in typical Naruto fashion.
About the movie...
Having watched several of the earlier Naruto movies, it's obvious that they follow a certain formula. Not a bad thing, and one like "The Will of Fire" can add some interesting twists to it. But this one, with the premise of Naruto being put into a prison, seemed to be an attempt at a departure from the usual, which is one thing that got my interest.
So, I want to give props to the people behind it for trying something different, and for largely succeeding at it.
Events at the end aside, Naruto is pretty much on his own in this movie--isolated from the village, in a hostile place, and being manipulated for reasons that aren't clear at first. The story is intricate and well thought out, much more than a simple "find bad guy, beat up bad guy" scenario.
Fitting the story into the timeline of the manga or anime would be problematic, but if you've seen some episodes of the anime about the time of the Five Kages' Summit, you may have seen some posters for it in the background of a few scenes, and it seems like that's about the same time events in the movie take place.
Of course, it's still a Naruto movie, and the themes of friendship and loyalty are there in the end. But it doesn't have a typical happy ending, either.
Btw there're a couple of extra scenes after the end credits.
I enjoyed it a lot, and can recommend it.
