The animation is far more advanced than the previous movies, with LOTS of computer generated imagery, and some SFX shots that are Matrix-esque. This movie is a very nice piece of eye-candy indeed(There's a scene where a flood starts to brew from afar, which sent a chill up my back). The traditional hand-drawn animation is good too, though there are many times where the characters seem to be drawn with black outlines that are a little too big. Thankfully Miramax left in the original orchestrated music, which is beautiful, mixing traditional anime orchestral pieces with Italian music. Heck, they even left in a JAPANESE song during a certain part of the movie!Read more ›
I really think the movie would've done a lot better if there were more advertisments. I found out about it by literally going onto a theater site, and seeing what was playing. Also the fact that it was only a limited release movie, that people didnt know about it.
But, I hope there are commercials and previews for the Video and DVD Release. That will help a lot!
Thanks so much for taking time to read my review! :)
You may have noticed that there were absolutely NO advertisements when Pokemon Heroes was out in theatres. I truly think it would've done better if people knew about it!
I am also disappointed at the time the movie is coming out. It was originally in the middle of December, but they decided to change it to mid January. It would've been a huge seller for the Chrismtas Season.
Well, for the movie, I thought it was awesome. The storyline was great, graphics were sensational, dubbing was better than usual, everything was better (For more info, refer to my review from a few months ago)!
I definitaly recommend this to every Pokemon fan out there!
Thanks for taking time to read my review!
The story is somewhat original, however, does tend to fall into the previous traps that the previous 4 have. While Ash is the centerpiece of the series and the films, less emphasis needs to be put on this character and more emphasis on the other companion characters in the series.
Aside from some of the minor shortcomings in the story, the animation and the music in this film make up for this. All in all, this is a film that can be enjoyed by FAMILIES and fans young and old. A well done and very well deserving piece of work.
