Product Description

Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew

Amazon.com

Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, the eighth Pokémon movie, ranks as one of the best features in this popular franchise. Director Kunihiko Yuyama and writer Hideki Sonoda sensibly keep the adventures and threats to a scale that's appropriate for the characters. (The first movies put the world at risk, and while Ash Ketchum is a good kid, he's not someone who can credibly save the planet.) Ash, Brock, Max, and May journey to Cameron Palace for a tournament that celebrates the valor of Prince Aaron, who saved the realm from destruction 1,000 years ago. Ash and Pikachu win, but the mischievous Mew kidnaps Pikachu, whom he's befriended. Prince Aaron's Pokémon companion Lucario awakens from the victor's staff to lead Ash and the gang to the Tree of Beginning, a mountain that is also a living entity. Ash risks his life to rescue Pikachu, proving the depth of their friendship to Lucario. The film includes lots of CG effects, most of which work well with the drawn animation: the earlier Pokémon films tended to look like two different movies spliced together.

The two-disc set also includes The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon: A 10th Anniversary Special. In this 40-minute adventure, Dr. Yung invites Misty and Ash to take part in a special tournament on his new battle system. Yung creates formidable Mirage Pokémon from raw data, culminating in a super-version of Mewtwo, the powerful psychic Pokémon from the first features. Once again, friendship and kindness triumph over greed and arrogance, although the special ends with the words, "To be continued..." (Unrated, suitable for ages 8 and older: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

Lucario and the Mystery of Mew is also one of the longest-running Pokemon movies ever at 1 hour and 40 minutes, further increasing the value of this DVD set.

I think the animation is very well done, the story is terrific, and the characters are just so memorable.

The start was a tiny bit slow but the rest of the movie was great. The movie had Lucario a brand new Pokemon plus a old Pokemon (Mew) there were 3 other never before seen Pokemon. It had a great bonus feature. A Mew card, a comic and another free DVD of a TV special "The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon" This Is a great DVD. Movie 5/5 Value 5/5 Features 5/5 Best one eva!

This DVD set is a great buy. I'm glad I was able to get Master of Mirage Pokemon on DVD. I had wanted to see it again but didn't think I would be able to buy the DVD since I do not approve of the new voice-actors. But Master of Mirage Pokemon came "free" with Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, so I couldn't be happier.

Not only that, but Lucario and the Mystery of Mew is one of the best Pokemon movies ever! I was surprised, because the last two Pokemon movies have been among the worst ever, in my opinion. Jirachi Wishmaker was the worst movie by far, and Destiny Deoxys was nothing special either. I thought the great, classic, well-directed and well-done Pokemon movies of the past (my favorites are Pokemon Heroes, and the first Pokemon movie, but 4-Ever was also quite good) were done. But Lucario and the Mystery of Mew returns to the old formula that I enjoy so much. The viewers, once again, are treated to the defining sub-opening battle sequence involving Ash with the credits overlayed and the American theme music playing...one of my favorite parts of all the Pokemon movies (except Wishmaker which removed this sequence). The dubbing is fantastic as well, by the original voice actors, and with care put into it (unlike Wishmaker, which was done cheesily and in a hurry). This movie succeeded in rekindling my interest in Pokemon.

Lucario and the Mystery of Mew is also one of the longest-running Pokemon movies ever at 1 hour and 40 minutes, further increasing the value of this DVD set. Recommended to all Pokemon fans, even those who have not watched Pokemon in some time.

EDIT: I found out this is unfortunately a glitched disc.

This movie gets 5 stars because it's the best one yet and I love the fact that Mew is in it because Mew is one of my favorite pokemon. You get a free promo Mew card with the DVD, plus a mini comic book and you get another DVD too, which both the movies are good. Any pokemon fan would love this movie.

If there's one thing I think has always worked for the Pokemon movies, it's their multiple introductions. For instance, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew starts with some historical background on Lucario, and his separation from his trainer. After this intro, there's the title intro, followed by an introduction to Ash and his friends as they enter their next adventure.

It seems that Lucario has passed his animosity towards his former trainer onto Ash, who has a similar aura. But, he has to team up with Ash in order to retrieve Pikachu, who's been abducted by Mew.

For the rest of the story, you'll have to watch the movie, or read someone else's review. One thing I'll say about Lucario is that there's something about him that reminds me of a character from a Sega game. Color him red, and you'll know what I mean. I think that's why I find him so interesting.

This package comes with another movie on a separate DVD, Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon. This is another movie where we get to see Mew again, as well as Mewtwo. I'm not sure why this is, but they have a whole new cast of voice actors for this movie. Even Misty, who makes an appearance in this movie, has a different voice. Those who are used to Ash, Brock, Max, May, Professor Oak, Jessy, James, Meowth, and Misty from earlier movies and episodes, such as I am, will wonder why their voices have changed so suddenly in Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon. For the familiar element of adventure, this isn't a bad movie. It's just strange to have Ash not sounding like Ash.

I, for one, would definitely recommend Lucario and the Mystery of Mew over Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon, if for no other reason than familiarity with the voices.

Format: DVD
This is a decent pokemon movie. It has some okay action seqeunces in it but they not as intense and briefer than those in the first five movies. For those of you that don't know the chronoligical order that would be all the movie from Pokemon Mewtwo strikes back untill Pokemon Forever. Also i thought I would also inform if your intrested that this actually the nith movie not the eighth movie. Unfortunately some fans of the movies series did not consider Mew Two Returns a movie do to its very short running time of only about 70 to 79 minutes when most pokemom movies usually last about 80 minutes to 2 hours depending if you are watching the normal dvd or vhs format version of these movies or the made for television versions. I believe this movie was supposed to be on Cartoon network sometime later this month. This movie had is bebue last Friday on Cartoon network. The adventures of Ash contiunue after the movie starts after a brief flash back scene. Ask takes part in a cermony to honor a legendary hero Sir Aron who saved the kingdoom from destruction. When Lucario the companion of Sir Aron is freed from his prison he thinks his master sir Eran betrayed him and his queen. Lucario was a new pokemon at this time he is a tall blue fox like pokemon about four foot 8 tall. It's up to ash with the aid of Brock, and his newest companions max and may (they were brought in at the end of the master quest series to replace misty until see later briefly return for about two in either pokemon advanced challange or battle I can't remember which. Can Ash help Lucario learn the real reason for his imprisonment and to trust humans again and once again save the tree of ages from otter destruction just like the brave Sir Aron did 1000 years ago. Find out in the thrilling conclusion.This movie should be fine for kids ages 10 and up do to slighter milder ammounts of violence than that in the first five movies.
