Led by Kakashi Hatake, Naruto Uzumaki, Sakura Haruno, and Rock Lee are tasked to escort the extravagant Prince Michiru Tsuki and his spoiled son Hikaru to the prosperous Land of Moon when the two return from a long trip around the world. As if guarding two whimsical high-ranked individuals was not challenging enough, the prince's reckless decision to acquire an entire circus during their journey—mainly to entertain Hikaru's wish of owning the saber-toothed tiger featured in the show—further propels the mission into disarray.

Just as things are finally settling down, the arrival of Michiru's convoy at the Land of Moon is met with an unforeseen crisis—the greedy Chief Minister Shabadaba has taken over the country with the assistance of mysterious, powerful ninjas. While Kakashi's team relentlessly fights the enemy by any means necessary, the two princes are forced to confront a new outlook on life through adversity.

Naruto movie 3 honestly surprised me. While I wasn't expecting anything more than an extended length episode, instead Naruto movie 3 stands on its own as a genuine movie. The story seems to be pretty standard fare, on paper anyway, but is handled well for all that. The story contains the depth and pathos that the show aims to have, elevating it. As always, the content of the story is not quite as important as the execution of the story and this movie succeeds in that respect. Story aside, standing largest of the movie's strengths is actually its art. The new character designs cooked up ...

Mixed Feelings
The Naruto movies aren't anything amazing but they're still somewhat enjoyable. That being said Naruto is one of my favorite anime but even so, i'm gonna give this an honest unbiased review. It's a typical predictable plot with some forgettable characters but plenty of action to enjoy.

Story (6). All of the Naruto movies fall into the same trap, they have a predictable/average plot. Now I wanna say first of all i don't think it's not good just because it's not apart of the main story, for the most part I like filler. However this story didn't deliver anything I haven't seen before. I was actually ...

One shouldn't expect eye-opening narrative or intricate writing when faced with a vile creature that is the shounen filler movie, and yet...It still somehow manages to upset this barely tangible notion of "expectation". The "story" (if you can call a sequence of random, incoherent, completely disconnected events that) itself was even worse than the rest of these sub-par, money-milking, uninspired Naruto movies. I had more fun in the rectal exam room than watching this abomination take on it's convulsed shape.

The first 40 minutes felt like a REALLY long intro for the paltry five minute fight scene. Second half onwards, by means of exploring ...
