Powerful, but missing a bit,
This review is from: Pokemon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew (DVD)
First, I'll confess that I'm a 35 year-old Pikachu addict -- I can't explain it, and I've stopped bothering to try. If you like Pokemon at all, you'll love this film -- it has all the familiar characters and has a very powerful storyline.
However: The Japanese version of this movie was considerably longer, and much of it was cut for the U.S., including and explanation of Pokemon and Trainers, scenes with other Mewtwos dying because of failures by the scientists, and a better explanation of what the heck Mew is doing.
Still, very good. If you don't know Pokemon, try the first in the video series, "Pikachu, I Choose You!" and find out for yourself what an adult can possibly like about it!
