Anubis, an ancient Egyptian evil that was defeated by Yugi's alter ego centuries ago, has returned to exact revenge. Wielding the power of the Eighth Millennium Item, Anubis is determined to destroy Yugi and take over the world.
This is one hell of a movie from my childhood. I adore this movie to death, and I've watched it a million times over the years, and still to this day I watch it often. It's really entertaining, the theming for the most part was pretty good, the monsters where awesome, and the sound and music blew my balls off, but compared to the actual series, it was kinda lame.
Though I will say that the movie's artwork and animation where all really well done, for the most part, it got really boring when Anubis stepped in, and in my opinion, even Kaiba's duel with yugi wasn't as fun as it was to watch in the series. Kaiba destroyed half of Yugi's deck with his Deck Destruction Virus, (Which is the most OP card I've ever seen, might I add) so there was no real chance for Yugi to show off his cards and strategies. And according to the Deck list on Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki, I'd say that's pretty sad.
I like that they tried to bring it closer to the actual game, but somehow, it makes it less fun to watch. Yugi pulled off so many cool strategies in the show, but in this one, he was pretty much backed into a corner the entire time until the final battle with Anubis (Who wasn't as intimidating as he was made out to be earlier in the movie).
Overall, it's a really fun movie from my childhood, and worth the watch, but less fulfilling then the series, if you ask me. read more
Yu-Gi-Oh! has always been and always will be a great memory of my childhood I still love the anime today I'm 18 now going on 19 and I still love the show and the movies. And I'm very excited about the new one coming out this year.
I gave the story a 9 my reason is when the movie was starting it shows us Yugi assembling the puzzle for the first time they did that in season 0, and I'm not sure why they had to recreate a scene that was introduced back in 1998.
The card designs were awesome because the cards looked like the ones we have in America I wondered how they managed to pull that one off.
I did notice one innuendo in the movie but I didn't give a crap at the end of the movie Kaiba said to Yugi, "Oh spare me your bull about friendship will ya."
In conclusion if you are a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan you should check this out this one out or maybe you grew up watching this like I did I first saw this in 2005 and I still have it to this day.read more
I liked this movie long ago, but it became painful to watch.
I love Yuugi-ou as much as the next person and Pegasus and Kaiba would be among my favorite characters - but here, even they are too bombastic and annoying. Yuugi is too preachy and dramatic (I watched the version with Dan Green, I don't think there is japanese one), Kaiba is too sadistic, Pegasus is too crazy and Anubis is a bad villain.
Action scenes with mummies and Jonouchi, Honda and Yuugi could've been fun, but they were in there too long. The same goes for a card game climax.
First of all I loved the « original » YuGiOh Duel Monsters.
When I heard about it going to the big screen I was psyched. The trailer was great.
But as for the movie, although I did “enjoy” it, I was disappointed. The movie was a duel between Kaiba and Yugi, we’ve seen this a million times, and Kaiba has lost a million times,
try something new.
There is an Evil (Anubis) living inside Yugi’s item (Millennium Puzzle) and he uses this duel as a means to escaping.
Small Yugi and his friends are sucked into the item were they come across zombie mummies.
So eventually the duel is interrupted by Anubis at the end of the movie and he duels Yugi. Yugi saves the world from darkness again, so un-original.
The good things about this movie: Pegasus has a cameo, new cards are introduced…well that’s about it.
I enjoyed it because I'm a Yugioh fan, but I didn't feel like this movie was theatre worthy. read more
