This movie is not, technically, a very good movie. The art's pretty decent -- one can tell they had a higher budget for this movie than for the TV series -- the soundtrack's fine but not outstanding, the characterization is about what you'd expect for a Prince of Tennis movie (i.e. minimal), and the plot is frankly ridiculous.

In fact, this movie is ridiculous and over-the-top in a number of ways, and that's exactly what's so great about it. It takes the "junior high school tennis is serious and manly!" theme of the TV series and turns it up to eleven in ways that deny logic, read more

This movie is totally awesome. With fighting included in tennis, this just excites me more while I was watching the movie. However, there's 2 flaws & disappointments in this movie. 1, the art is bad. Not that bad, but bad. Just by looking at the characters in the anime, example - Inui, you'll know that the author just rushed through some parts of the anime. Second bad thing of the anime (movie): PREDICTIONS. In my opinion, I already know what'll happen, it's so obvious. But every main character nearly always wins. But why is this obvious ....? Judging by Echizen Ryoma and Echizen Ryoga's looks, read more

I'm a big fan of the series, but a bit disappointed with this movie...
I think the people who made this movie is a bit too hurried to decide on the characters.
They made this filler character, Ryoga Echizen, Ryoma's older adopted brother. In the movie he entered ryoma's house when he was a kid. Then Ryoga went missing through the entire series... come back for a brief moment on the movie, then went missing again...

It's just too weird...

Anime: Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor
High-stakes gambling, on a boat! Both take somewhat simple things like rock-paper-scissors and tennis and make them RIDICULOUSLY DRAMATIC, with Kaiji making such things as flipping over a card or emptying a tissue box INCREDIBLY INTENSE, and Tenipuri cranking its characteristic improbable physics up to eleven. Tezuka kills the dinosaurs. With tennis. I'm completely serious.
