Product Description

One Piece..Uncut, and with an all new FUNimation dub!

The island kingdom of Alabasta is about to erupt in civil war – a war engineered by Crocodile, one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, and his criminal organization Baroque Works. Monkey D. Luffy, his Straw Hat pirates and Princess Vivi race to the island, where the strongest warriors of Baroque Works wait to stop them. Can Vivi and her friends stop an entire war? And how can Luffy fight Crocodile, when Crocodile can turn into sand?

Amazon.com

A desert may seem like an unlikely place for pirates, but Luffy and his Straw Hat crew fight for Princess Vivi in the eighth One Piece movie, subtitled "The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta." Crocodile and his Baroque Works gang foment a civil war in Alabasta, so they can control the country after most of its warriors have been killed. Crocodile also hopes to gain control of the Pluton, an ultimate weapon that may or may not exist. But Luffy and the Straw Hats charge to Vivi's rescue. Having eaten the Suna Suna or Sand Fruit, Crocodile can turn any part of his body into sand--a trick that may remind viewers of Gaara in Naruto. The climactic battle between the two pirate leaders pits Crocodile's sand transformations against Luffy's Gum Gum limbs and wits. Despite its title, One Piece: Movie 8 consists of recut footage from the "Alabasta" story arc of the TV series with some bits of additional animation. The repurposed footage doesn't always fit together: the film opens in the middle of an adventure and some important story elements get lost in the shuffle, including how Luffy is saved from the poisoned wound Crocodile inflicts. These inconsistencies probably won't bother One Piece fans. (Rated PG-13: violence, risqué humor, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Customer Reviews

If you know NOTHING about One Piece, I don't recommend it because it most likely will not make much sense.
Betsy Betsy
I would not recommend this movie unless you were a Shonen Jump subscriber and followed the "One Piece" series.
Fathom
In the story arc (Episodes 92 - 130) we are given are much more in depth backgrounds about the characters.

I don't know anything about the Manga upon which this is based and have never had the chance to see any of the episodes of the popular television series featuring the characters from One Piece -- but all that really isn't necessary to enjoy the eye-poppingly enthusiastic animation and delightful story of how a mismatched group of super-powered pirates rally behind a desert princess to save her kingdom from the dangerous fiend Crocodile.

I suppose this ought to be classed under the heading of guilty pleasure (for me) since its target audience seems to be teenage boys and girls -- though I understand that manga and anime have a much larger adult audience in Japan than comics and animation have in the US. The animated women are all voluptuous and not afraid to use their feminine charms to disarm an enemy, and there is lots of blood and violence -- though it is certainly not to the point of being gory or pornographic, the film does "earn" its PG-13 rating. Still, the film remains playful and inventive in its approach, somewhat like Pirates of the Caribbean, and would be hard to describe as offensive (my wife and I saw this together and both of us smiled through it).

While the characters and story are lots of fun, the real delight in this picture is the animation. It is endlessly inventive, over-the-top, and gorgeously rendered.

After buying several of the Fox 4 Kids DVD versions of the "One Piece" series, I was close to giving up on ever seeing a U.S. release of the show, with both the Japanese AND English soundtracks, and without the EDITED video (where they added 'water guns' and changed parts of some storylines). It had reached a point were I ended up purchasing DVDs with only the Japanese soundtrack, with really bad English translations. However, now Funimation have STARTED to release "One Piece" with BOTH Japanese and English soundtracks (Sanji no longer sounds like he has a stuffed nose!), and with the ORIGINAL video/story intact!!! (I say 'started' because the DVD says that the TV series will be released UNCUT starting MAY 2008!!!) I've waited so long for this. While some people may look at this series as just a 'kid's show,' it isn't. It's entertainment for ADULTS as well as children! It's funny. It's heartwarming. It's inspirational. Now, hopefully, people will understand why it's celebrating it's tenth anniversary in Japan!

How my ratings work:
5 - I really liked/loved it
4 - I liked it
3 - Could've been better/worth a look
2 - Just didn't live up to the potential
1 - Simply awful

I just saw this movie today with my friends. I've been a fan of One Piece for a good while. I've yet to read the manga, but I plant to read it some day. This movie has everything you could want: action, comedy, drama, intense battles. I don't need to go into the plot since it's mentioned above. The voice cast is outstanding, and it's cool to see it all uncut (I've mainly seen it on tv). If you love One Piece, you'll love this. If you're a fan of anime, movies, and pirates, you should love it in general.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For the record, anyone who hasn't seen the goofy pirate anime "One Piece" won't have the slightest idea what is going on.

For my part, it took the mighty power of Wikipedia to understand "One Piece - The Desert Princess and the Pirates." But once I had the slightest idea who these people were, I found this particular movie to be an entertaining, fluffy little action anime, with plenty of wild powers and overwhelmingly elastic bodies.

After an encounter with a shapeshifting transvestite assassin (I am not making this up), our heroes realize that Vivi's desert homeland of Alabasta is in trouble. Her father King Cobra is being framed for stealing rain by the villainous Crocodile, a power-hungry psychopath who can turn his body into sand. Now a rebel army (run by Vivi's childhood sweetheart) is about to invade the capital city.

So of course our heroes rush in to help, but are stopped along the way by various superpowered Baroque gang of Crocodile's. Vivi desperately charges through the city, hoping to somehow stop the war -- but Crocodile is holding her father hostage, and is ready to destroy the entire city. Can Luffy's rubbery body somehow defeat a man whose body isn't solid enough to strike?

"One Piece - The Desert Princess and the Pirates" is your basic save-the-locals adventure story, with lots of one-on-one fighting and fantastically violent villains. Each of our heroes has at least one strange, uberpowerful person to defeat, and Luffy dominates the movie with a smash-down battle with Crocodile. Those coinciding climaxes are really quite impressive.

Bespite lots of blood and serious injuries, the bendy-looking characters and ceaseless comic relief don't really let up, such as Nami fueling a giant crab with her cleavage.
