Overall i give the movie 9/10 for its plot which i loved and for the great action scenes and if you love the action scenes in Naruto this movie wont disappoint! Highly recommended to all Naruto fans!!
As I recall, this was the one that did in the scriptwriter for the past few (all of them?) movies--he was let go because this movie was panned so hard in Japan. Weak plot and weaker character interaction added to the weakest battle sequences I've seen so far made this movie a trial to sit through even though it isn't even an hour and a half in length. Watch it just for the sake of watching it, to say you've seen it, and you might not notice the issues present. Watch it twice, though, with greater attention paid to the nuances, and the flaws really begin to glare at you. I could go into a massive list of what's wrong with it from start to finish, but I already did that on my blog; at a ten-point font size it took three and a half pages to complete, so I'll just stick to the immediate issues here.
Barring Inheritors of the Will of Fire, the plot of this movie is essentially what has been seen in various series filler arcs and since the very first movie, Clash in the Land of Snow: Spoiled/jaded woman/child selfishly rejects everyone/everything because of some great personal past agony, but Naruto's blunt honesty and overbearing optimism inspire his unwitting victim to step from a suffocating cocoon of nihilistic turmoil, find an inner strength once feared lost, and help him save the day from a figure in the victim's life who had previously been considered trustworthy.Read more ›
"The Lost Tower" is a combination time-travel/clockwork adventure where Naruto and his team are sent to caputre Mukade - a rouge ninja who is about to call forth the power of the Ley Line in an ancient underground channel of chakra energy. As a result, Naruto gets thrown a thousand years into the past where he encounters Ninato Namikaze, the future fourth Hokage, and the Queen of Loran, who unbeknownst to her, is ruling a city of puppets while her people are being enslaved by one of her advisers - who is Mukade in disguise.
Another gripping and intriguing Naruto adventure.
This DVD also contains a Naruto short where he stumbles upon a magic lamp and release a genie.
