The Straw Hat Crew arrives at the desert island of Alabasta to help Princess Nefertari Vivi stop the social unrest her country is facing. Behind the heated conflict is the Baroque Works pirate organization, which has been conspiring against the kingdom with the aim of stealing the secrets of an ancient mass destruction weapon. As the situation grows out of control, Monkey D. Luffy and Vivi must quell the revolution before the nation collapses entirely.

...Probably the worst One Piece movie that's been made.

It's just a recap of the Arabasta Arc, which had an a great storyline, that would alone get definitely at least a 9, but the movie left out some great parts like Ace's appearance and Mizu Mizu Luffy.

Mixed Feelings
Plot 6/10

Episode of Alabasta was pretty much a whole recap of the Alabasta Arc. Few short scenes added, but lots of them were cut out [where’s my goddamn mizu luffy] but mainly nothing more happened. I’d say going from scene to scene was too chaotic, you could get lost

Characters 5/10

Because of a really fast pacing they weren’t really developed, if you weren’t familiar with characters before, you could have a problem.

A mere shadow of the godliness that is One Piece.

This is a retelling of the Arabasta arc, the final arc of the Crocodile Saga from the One Piece tv show. The arc in the show is one of my favs, scoring a rare 10/10 for me and I was expecting great things from this movie, expecting the definitive version with upgraded Animation.

I saw the relatively low score on this site and was puzzled. i soon realised upon watching, this is a train wreck of a movie that has little resemblance to the Arabasta arc.

There are two huge problems with this movie. The first, the lesser ...
