Before you turn down this movie due to the negative reviews of other people, please read my review.

This is a much more powerful and deep tale than, "evil Pokemon wants to rule the world". Dr, Fuji was a scientist who wanted to bring back his dead daughter, Ai. He decided to do this, by cloning her. He decided to clone a Pokemon, and discover their life force, since the human clone could only live for four years. Thus, Mewtwo, a clone of the most rare and most powerful Pokemon ever, Mew, was born.

Even though they were in separate glass cylinders (that kept them alive) mew and Ai could communicate telepathically. Mewtwo began to learn about the world around him. But, as it happened, it had been four years, and Ai died. Her father, Dr. Fuji, was not worried. He had her DNA, and he could clone her again. This made Mewtwo angry. How dare he just replace her?! She was a living being! Not a toy you can just replace again and again! Mewtwo became unstable, and they had to tranquilize him.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

(Japanese Version)

Myuutsuu: Make them? As many as you want? That's not right. There's only one Ai.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

A year or so later, Mewtwo awoke. He learned that he was not born a Pokemon, but created. Created? He wondered. He was told that he was a clone. An experiment. A mere scientific product. He became angry. He was angry with the scientists who created him. They created him to be only an experiment, and nothing else. How could they? Furious at his own existence, he destroyed the lab, and everyone inside.

My review is purely from a parent's perspective:
I have twoboys, 9 and almost 11. They love Pokemon. They loved Ninja Turtles,Power Rangers, Star Wars, etc. so you know they are prone to being led by commercialism. Pokemon encourages nurturing, caring, and ideals like honesty, acceptance, and forgiveness. The good trainers protect and care for Pokemon. The bad guys exploit them and put their own selfish motives ahead of the Pokemon. The middle-can-be-turned-around characters learn from their mistakes and are forgiven by the main characters. Even Jessie and James occasionally show remorse and are treated with compassion.
Do Pokemon battle? Yes. Unlike Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, and Star Wars, however, a Pokemon doesn't have to be hurt or killed to be defeated. Their weapons are inner strengths that they are born with. And no trainer worth his salt lets his Pokemon get injured. It's not hard to take the lessons from Pokemon and apply them to the reality of the child.
It's like Beanie Babies -- I know they're making a fortune leading our kids around by the nose. But it's relatively benign and I watch every video with them to make sure nothing changes. On a long trip in the truck, I let them play the two CD's -- the music is actually very enjoyable for me (and I'm 46!) and contains no bad language.
And I liked Pikachu's Vacation film much better than the actual Pokemon movie... but my boys loved both!

This movie is exellent! I loved it at the theaters. It was so cool watching Mewtwo and Mew fight it out. Another thing that was cool is Pikachu Vacation mini movie. I got some real laughs over there though their really was just only pokemon. The best part is when Raichu and Pikachu battle it out in a race. It also showed some pokemon from Gold and Silver. But even if you saw it at the theaters... STILL BUY IT. Chances are that you didn't get a card but when you buy the VHS or DVD you get the Mewtwo Promo card (I think it's a promo card. If not just know that it is a Mewtwo, and it has the same attacks of the promo Mewtwo.) with a different picture. You also get both Mewtwo Strikes Back and Pikachu's Vacation and a bonus..... A PREVIEW OF THE SECOND MOVIE!

At first look, I thought the movie was going to be like the cartoon, ok but with something missing from it. But I was wrong! This movie is awesome. Even though it's not on video yet, you should pre-order it now! I listening to the soundtrck as I write this and it's awesome too! This is a must-see for all Pokemon fans, and even those who are not familiar with pokemon will get something out of it!

I am a devoted fan of Pokemon, despite my age (a whopping 16!). However, although I found the TV series entertaining (in a baffling, obsessive way), this feature lacks the charm, humor, and tone of the episodes and instead, seems to be just winging it, exploiting the enormous success of the pokemon phenomenon purely for corporate profit, without the care of an artist. Not only is it crudely translated and dubbed (may I mention the some 20 minutes cut? or the error on the pokemon names?), but the emotion behind the original Japanese production is lost. And the whole "fighting is bad" tirade? Come on! Much of the effort at emotional content resulted in several mawkishly sentimental scenes. We don't need to be told; we want to be shown. I'm aware that this film is directly mainly toward a younger audience, but I don't think any less effort should be put forth to make it a quality film. Hopefully, with the some $83 mill from this production, the second pokemon movie will be handled with more tenderness. I (and I speak for many others) will be waiting to applaud this summer's Pokemon Revelation Lugia.
