Naruto is framed for a crime he didn't commit and is sent to a cruel, evil prison out in the middle of nowhere. What could this prison possibly want from Naruto? Here's a hint, the bad guys all call Naruto “Jinchuriki”, that shouldn't be too much of a shock considering most of the plots revolving around Naruto have to do with Kyuubi in some way.

Story: 6 (Fair)
Creative plot? Not particularly.
If you've seen any of Naruto or Naruto Shippuuden (or any of the movies) you know how these things end up. I of course won't 'spoil' anything about the movie, however there really read more

As I've said previously in another review, I'm not a fan of Naruto films as they are really just one big filler. This one is ok, but it has it's faults.

Story - Naruto has been sent to prison for attacking the Raikage, well right off the bat thats just stupid, how would Naruto even know how to get to the Hidden Cloud Village let alone come up with an effective plan to attack the Raikage and succeed in killing him, how overpowered is the Raikage compared to Naruto? So some guy (Mui) put a seal on him and trys to suck his chakra out to read more

This is Naruto Shippuuden's 5th movie - i know I've seen all of the 4 but i barely remember what those were about... so i did not really have any high expectations for this one... but surprisingly, for me, this was really good...

Story, Art, Sound and Character would be a 7... but (my) Enjoyment and Overall score is an 8...

Story-wise there is really nothing new... Naruto gets thrown to prison since he was framed... he gets to meet the evil head of the facility (Mui)... he makes new friends while in prison... he gets to be his awesome self and then try to save read more

Christ. The Will of Fire finally gave a hint that somebody understood what might make for a good Naruto movie, and then the next two movies did literally everything wrong. They went back to formula and shunted all the side characters almost completely out of the movie. I'm not here because I only like Naruto the character. Naruto the character is a privileged bastard in no place to tell other people how to live, but that's all he ever does in these. When he's surrounded by only movie-exclusive characters with no compelling designs or backgrounds, I couldn't care any less.

I'm not sure if this movie read more
