Editorial Reviews

The Struggle for Time and Space Begins Again! The Legendary Arceus. Long ago, Arceus granted a fragment of its awesome power as the Jewel of Life to help Michina in the town’s hour of need, only to be betrayed when it was time that power to be returned. After so many years, Arceus is about to return to reclaim that stolen power—enraged, vengeful, and seemingly unstoppable! Not even the combined might of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina can stop Arceus from devastating all existence across multiple dimensions. But Ash and his companions, joining forces with their new friend Sheena, may have discovered the only way to redeem that ancient betrayal. Their journey will be both dangerous and uncertain: even if Ash and his friends can set an old wrong right again, will there be time to return the Jewel of Life before Arceus destroys everything and everyone they’ve ever known?

Format: DVD
At the beginning of the film, Ash and his friends arrive in Michina. They quickly find themselves in the middle of a conflict between Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. Ash, Dawn, Brock, Pikachu and Piplup are saved by Sheena, a young woman who is able to connect with the hearts of Pokemon. She and her assistant, Kevin, explain that the conflict is due to Arceus (a Legendary Pokemon) being close to awakening. Sheena also explains that her ancestor, Damos, had betrayed Arceus and took the Jewel of Life. When Arceus returns, Sheena plans to return the Jewel of Life to the Pokemon.

Arceus awakens from its slumber and returns to Earth. When Sheena tries to return the jewel, Arceus realizes that it's a fake and destroys it. Arceus goes into a rage, and Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina arrive to try and stop Arceus. Dialga, the Pokemon of Time, sends everyone except Kevin back in time to the point where Damos is supposed to return the jewel to Arceus; Dialga hopes that by doing this, the past can be altered. Can Ash and his friends make a difference in the past in order to correct the future?

When it comes to the animation in the film, there were attempts to try and combine traditional animation with computer graphics. Unfortunately, the two elements did not blend together very well, and the computer graphics drew too much attention to itself. Also, there were times when I thought that the computer graphics were being used for things that really didn't need computer graphics (such as plants and trees). However, I did enjoy the musical score. The story itself was decent, and it's basically the type of story fans of Pokemon have come to expect from the films for the franchise.

Arceus and the Jewel of Life was released as a single disc DVD.

Very good movie! Great story, wonderful music and beautiful animation the voice actors were good.....except for Aceus for a God pokemon he has a very annoying voice. When you think of God of ANYTHING you think of a booming low voice filled with wisdom....this guy's voice was high pitched and he sounded like a Villain instead of someone who was tricked into believing he was betrayed. If you can get past the bad voice actor for Arceus you will enjoy it. I actually can't wait for the next movie to come out. I saw it today on Cartoon Network and it was really good too!

After waiting along time for this movie to come out it was well worth it. The graphics and animation are awsome and arceus looks cool and powerful especially when angry.

As usual, Pokemon delivers. Great plot, enjoyable music, and all the lovable charm that Pokemon is known for.

Best time to watch the film is after season 12 of the show, because the Pokemon that Ash, Dawn, and Brock have and their evolutions match up with the end of the season.

Few franchises are able to consistently deliver great storytelling and strong films again and again. Pokemon is one of them.

I would like to start off this review saying this: this film isn't the worst in the franchise, nor is it the best.

The plot of this film is interesting in that it leads up to the Poke'mon God Arceus' appearance by making references to past movies. As it turns out, the approaching awakening of Arceus was what initiated the events in The Rise of Darkrai as well as Giratina and the Sky Warrior. The other legendaries of Sinnoh (Dialga, Palkia and Giratina) also make appearances in this film as the conflict between the Sinnoh Dragons all comes to a head with Arceus awakening and returning to Earth, seeking revenge against humanity after it was seemingly betrayed by a human it had trusted with its life. While Dialga, Palkia and Giratina fight Arceus off, Dialga sends Ash and his friends as well as the character Sheena (a descendant of the human who betrayed Arceus) into the past to find out what really happened and correct it before Arceus destroys humankind.

The plot itself begins in a fast-paced fashion but slowly grinds to a halt at several points. We're treated to flashbacks, Poke'mon being cute and other such scenes that drag on for quite a while making parts of the movie rather boring. The villain of this movie is incredibly obvious, which seems to be a running theme in the films now; however the villain's motive is more sympathetic than it usually is for other villains in the other movies. The characters introduced to us for the movie are all well voiced (particularly Dan Green voicing Damos), but not particularly interesting. They don't get out from the background much other than to move the plot along. The film continuously cuts back to the much more interesting fight ensuing between the 3 Sinnoh Dragons and Arceus, and I found myself wishing that was the focus instead.

I'm a huge Pokemon fan and own almost all of the movies (soon to own all, hopefully) and I couldn't be happier to add this one to my collection. I can't say that this is the best movie out of the set but there is still nothing noteworthy I can or even want to take the time to complain about.

To sum it up; if you're a Pokemon fan then you shouldn't have any regrets with this purchase.
