SynopsisNaruto, Kakashi, Sakura, and Lee are sent to protect a prince during his trip around the world and see that he returns safely to his home in the Moon Country. The Moon Country happens to be really rich and as such the Prince tends to buy anything his heart desires, during his travels the Prince would come across a circus group that features a rare Sabre-toothed tiger that he just had to have. So he purchased the entire group. Suddenly a mission to protect just the spoiled prince that hardly listened to anything said, turns in to a mission to look after aimals and a prince that doesn`t listen to what they say, and in the end somehow get them all back safely to their home country. All the while there are three mysterious Ninja wielding some frightening jutsu waiting for them. Why are they attacking them? What do they want with Team Kakashi!?!

Well I don't expect much of a deep and compelling storyline or unexpected plot twists diving into a Naruto movie, but that's not what Naruto is about. The "story" (if you can call a sequence of random incoherent completely disconnected events that) itself was even worse than the rest of these sub-par, money-milking, uninspired Naruto movies. It was a real pain in the ass to watch this story take on it's convulsed shape.
The first 40 minutes were like a REALLY long intro into the pathetic 5 minute fight. The story started developing from the 2nd half of the movie, if you can call that development. The ending and the upcoming "plot twists" could be seen from a mile away. (Literally, you could actually predict the plot while being a mile away from your screen. Yup.)
Well to tell you the truth the story was below yu-gi-oh! story telling standards. That's really as low as you go.
Nothing out of the ordinary here. (Except for a shit-load of cash poured into multiple underwhelming five minute fights ridden with awful choreography). The overall quality was pretty high though, except I disliked the art style itself a bit. It seemed to lack consistency compared to the adapted canon material. The CGI wasn't out of place nor overused. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to complain about either.
Sound was meh... Generally Naruto tends to shine in the sound and animation departments. Well I can't say I hated it, I just didn't notice the sound at all. It's not the way it should be. It should inspire life to the bleak wasteland of abhorrent writing,just like during the original series. Though several musical scores were taken from the TV series, that's why it manages to score 6.
Characters while trying to take themselves seriously, were more of a comedic relief than anything else.What this movie really lacked was the development of team Kakashi. Naruto being his usual dumb self, Sakura and Lee had as many lines as that Siberian tiger, which somehow managed to be incrusted into this mess of a story.
The "villains" were the laughing stock of the movie, their designs, voices, ( and what's with the wannabe Jiraya wigs?) no backstory, no motives, no nothing.
Naruto is all about enjoyment, and this movie had none. The word "painful" fails to describe what kind of fucking soul-wrenching, dimension-tearing, mahou shoujo tear-inducing hurt I was subjected to. I just kept begging either the movie or my life to end.
The 3 things that make Naruto enjoyable are: the fights, the comedic relief and character development. The fights were the worst of the of all the Naruto movies I've seen, but what's really weird it lacked comedic relief, I missed inner Sakura and her aggressive behavior towards Naruto, Lee's random catch phrases and his freaky "hard-working" attitude. I will spare you the brain cells won't even try to get into details about character development.
After long and tedious work, me and my friend managed to count that the word "papa" was used forty-three times during the run time of one hour and twenty nine minutes of this movie. Which means you will hear the word "papa" accompanied by "dramatic" crying every two minutes and ten seconds.
OVERALL: (~3.4) = 3
I am giving it a 3 and I consider this does justice to this Movie. It's lack of redeeming qualities even for a Naruto movie is really unbelievable. If you have some free time, and are bored as hell, just go and watch something more intellectually stimulating and enjoyable like...homeless dogs taking a shit on your lawn. Really you have been warned, watch this at your own risk.
Naruto movie 3 honestly surprised me. While I wasn't expecting anything more than an extended length episode, instead Naruto movie 3 stands on its own as a genuine movie. The story seems to be pretty standard fare, on paper anyway, but is handled well for all that. The story contains the depth and pathos that the show aims to have, elevating it. As always, the content of the story is not quite as important as the execution of the story and this movie succeeds in that respect. Story aside, standing largest of the movie's strengths is actually its art. The new character designs cooked up for the film look good and the art is crisp and nice-looking. Further, the action sequences are fast, brutal, and possessed of an unusual fluidity. There are moments were the art direction takes strongly artistic bends, as well as taking more experimental shifts (particularly in some of the fight scenes) and this all works very well. Occasionally, the art in the comedic moments may seem discongruous to the art in the action sequences but it all works together surprisingly well and looks nice doing it. The music is good, seems lifted directly from the series (whether it really is or not) - though thats not a bad thing, per se. Music aside, there are many moments of well-placed silence to highlight the emotional gravity or drama in various scenes. Rock Lee nearly seems like a non-item particularly next to Naruto, who seems bent on carrying the entire movie. This is especially interesting in light of that while Rock Lee has probably the fewest lines of dialogue of any of the leads, he has some of the most involved and intense action scenes. It whould seem that Lee is tacked onto to this adventure simply for the sake of said action scenes (not that I'm complaining). Naruto is, naturally, possessed still of grating personality and largest importance to the movie, but he is not, overall, especially irritating. Overall though, the characters work well together and won't displease most folks. Overall, Naruto movie 3 stands apart as a good movie, not just a good Naruto yarn, due in large part to its high production values. read more
Both are probably the worst movies of either franchise, hands down. If you like one of them, you're somewhat likely to enjoy the other. Neither of these display their respective franchise's correctly and focus all too much on moralistic actions by the main characters geared toward seemingly unimportant characters whom have absolutely no bearing on anything that would quickly resemble the main story which is arguably what shounen-driven franchises are all about. Not enough action and the same self-sacrificing "I put my life on the line for you" kind of thinking you've probably seen countless times in either show that shouldn't have been brought up again and used as the main basis for either movie with such irrelavance that entices feelings that will leave you hating the entire concept. If that's your thing, you should check it out.
