Synopsis

Boruto Uzumaki has inherited the mischievous spirit and endless energy from his famous father, the 7th Hokage, Naruto. As he enters his Chunin exams, a harsh decision made by Naruto angers Boruto, causing their personalities to clash, awakening a fierce ambition within the young shinobi to surpass his father with his own skills and techniques. But in order to do so, he will need the help of none other than Uchiha Sasuke, Naruto's lifelong rival and childhood friend. Although Boruto has convinced himself that he has what it takes to surpass the 7th Hokage, he soon discovers that the road ahead is not nearly as simple as the young shinobi has envisioned.

Boruto: Naruto the Movie opens the doors for a new generation of shinobi to put their abilities to the test, as they face a mysterious enemy and hope to restore peace to Konoha, and the hardships within their own families. The 7th Hokage certainly has an impressive battle history behind him, but on this occasion, he will need the strong teamwork of old friends and new talents in order to win.

Background

Boruto: Naruto the Movie is officially the highest grossing feature film in the entire Naruto franchise, and was number 11 on Japan's Top Grossing Domestic Movies of 2015. This is the first time that original creator Masashi Kishimoto has written the entire screenplay for a Naruto movie.

For me, Boruto represents a good two hours of my life that I will never get back.

The good:
-I can tell people at parties that I actually paid real money to see Boruto in a theatre! I know right?? Isn't that nuts?

The bad:
-The story is yet another recycled, cookie-cutter, shonen I-can-do-it-if-I-just-try-hard-enough kind of story. It's vapid. It's boring. Give yourself a good look in the mirror. You deserve better than Boruto. Please don't do this to yourself.
-Boruto looks exactly as Naruto did as a boy. This is just pure laziness, and fan-service of the worst kind.
-The background drawings are god awful. They look so read more

Like many anime fans of my generation, I began my life as an anime fan through Cartoon Network's Toonami block, featuring shounen classics such as Dragon Ball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Rurouni Kenshin. However, for me personally, I was on the tail end of those shows' airtime, only catching the Majin Buu saga and reruns of the first few episodes of other shows. I didn't come in at the beginning, so it wasn't like starting a brand new adventure, and it wasn't until around 2005 that I first got to experience the start of a brand new story, and that story, of course, was read more

Really disliked it, I don't recognized the main character at all, that is simply not Naruto. What happened to the guy who was so nice and charismatic, and wanted a family more than anything? What happened to him?

He order his own son to call him seventh instead of dad, I mean, it was so disapointing and terrible, complete garbage.

And again, the recycled stories, drama, crybabies, villains who makes no sense, families who are supposed to be happy, are not even together.

Friendship? What's that? Honestly, I doubt the characters remember each other anymore, everyone minding their own business, where's the friendly spirit? Where's the groups read more

I really wanted to review this movie, because it's officially Kishimoto's final involvement with the Naruto franchise (if nothing changes, that is) and I wanted to make somewhat of a tribute to this series, that has been part of my life for quite some time.

Story: 50%
Characters: 30%
Art: 10%
Soundtrack: 10%

Story (3/5):
The story is nothing special. It's basically an encore to the series' epilogue and centers around the new generation, that got introduced in the final chapter of the main series. The focus is Naruto's son Boruto, who is torn between admiring his father as the hokage and rebelling against him for not having any time for read more
