Well, I'm not a fan of Naruto. I didn't watch the series before the movie. I bought the movie to see if it would help me get into the series, and I can't say it did.

First off, I found the story to be slow, although this could be because of my mindframe at the time. By no means should you base choices on my review; I'm not a huge fan of this kind of anime. The quality of the story was somewhat like that of the InuYasha movies, only even slower imo.

The art was as good as any other basic anime really. I won't mark read more

This is the first Naruto movie and still the best of all that were made. It has an atmosphere much closer to that of its earlier episodes, when the show was still fresh and interesting. As far as movies go, you can of course expect far better production values and flashier battles. Yet it has something more than just an excuse for a parade of special attacks. It is by all means nothing more than a filler mission but it had a smart concept that went beyond the simple plot of “Let’s go save some petty village for money”.

The basic plot is about our read more

Great for anyone that likes the Naruto series, it is independent from the series so doesn't interfere with the storyline of the series in any way. It also means you can watch and enjoy it whether you have seen the naruto series or not.
It was good because it was a combiantion of seriousness and comedy so you dont get weighed down by either.
It includes the characters Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Kakashi from the actual series, and you get to see all of them kick some butt!

I would like to firstly state that I have not watched the Naruto series. This means that I'm judging this movie solely on what I saw and not in light to the series.

Story - 6/10
The story seemed simple enough and somewhat expected. It was a mission and that's all there was to it, arguably some would say that it's too simple. I would say it's fitting and although it is nothing special, I have to say that I am a sucker for simplicity and personally it kept me interested enough to continue watching.

Art - 7/10
I found the art nice; the backgrounds and characters, whilst they read more
