The first Naruto movie may not be a memorable one, but it's certainly enjoyable at the least. The story doesn't stand out to be anything that great at all. In fact it's actually quite predictable, that doesn't mean it wasn't decent though. While it is a typical Naruto story there's still some enjoyment in the action scenes and the emotional dialogue scenes. The conclusion also was in typical Naruto fashion which as always was a nice touch. The animation worked as always, and was enhanced for the movie making the environments and characters look and move around better. The sound was crisp and clean and read more

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

So I recently watched this movie, having completed the first Naruto series, and I would definitely say it was nothing special.

The plot seemed to have a very 'Naruto filler' feel to it and didn't grab my attention. I thought that the princess' issue with the season, Spring was pretty weak and not a good enough reason for her to hide or feel disappointed. The princess just screamed helpless heroine and it was very unoriginal. In fact, I felt no connection towards the newly introduced characters whatsoever.

However I should mention, that the strength the main character, Naruto demonstrated was very endearing. He played a good role 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

"Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow" / "Naruto: Movie 1 - Dai Katsugeki!! Yuki Hime Shinobu Houjou Dattebayo!" and "Yu Yu Hakusho: The Golden Seal" are spin-off movies of popular long-running fighting-shounen series that focus on a brash and gifted young male protagonist with a powerful determination to never giving up who fights for what he believes to be right.

In both movies, a royalty is kidnapped by the antagonists to be used as a hostage and a bargaining chip in order to get something that would supposedly allow for immense power or control. Due to this, the protagonists must  read more
