I usually don't write reviews but given all the blind fanboy reviews saying 10/10 I felt inclined to write one.
The plot felt a bit different from other One Piece movies in the past, so it did seem very original at first.
However, as expected, Oda didn't deviate of the classic Shonen clichés such as Luffy getting beaten to the ground multiple times untill he finally beat the bad guy. These kinds of things made the story way too predictable. All the hints we got from the character related to Nami's past made the ending predictable, which is stupid because it basically gave the movie no plot twist at all.
Art & Animation (1/10):
Just straight up pathetic. They used CGI for background characters consistently, which may not bother many people, but still shows that they didn't give a damn about this movie seeing as they tried to save money on the animation even though CGI is frowned upon.
The Art all throughout the first part of the movie is pretty bad as well. I can't really explain it, but I got loads of flashbacks regarding the anime fight with Doflamingo.
If you're doing a movie with a hefty budget then making characters look like stickmen rats simply doesn't feel right
However, the fight was animated pretty nicely (even though the choice of the villain's final form or whatever you wanna call it was ridiculous) and there were lots of flashy colors to distract people from all the bad stuff.
Sound (8/10): It was good yo
Btw as a sidenote, the villain's backstory felt very forced and didn't fit into the movie well. Also it was kind of ridiculous so it was pretty shit.
The film incorporated a lot of humor and people basically laughed all the time. Part of which had to do with the bad subtitles we got to read as well as an immature audience laughing at Nami's boobs all the time.
Some of the jokes felt overused and got boring but then again there were a few really good ones in there, so the humor was the main reason I enjoyed the movie at all.
6/10 because I'm butthurt about the animation, otherwise more like a 7, given the fact that the story felt predictable at times, even when there were supposed to be plot twists, as well as the antagonist having a forced back story that just didn't fit at all. Its end score would be lower if it weren't for the humor which made the experience bearable.read more
First review (7/25/16). This movie is great and just miraculously outstanding. Eichiro Oda never fails to deliver beauty in art to his audience. The music is fantastic thanks to the music staff that put their soul into the making . The colors are just so sharp,crispy and delicious. The story is fantastic as always expected from the most popular mangaka of all time. 4 Dimensional Experience is legitimately the best experience. Watching this movie on the day of its release was like a dream come true. I am a pirate but these are better pirates if you get what I mean.
Our beloved straw hats are going to the biggest casino in the world to have some fun and of course they will meet the owner himself!
The Casino is the biggest ship I’ve ever seen in the series and I couldn’t believe it was moved by 2 gigantic turtles! “There is gold, gold, everywhere” I mean the whole casino is filled with golden buildings, statues, restaurants, hotels and even golden amusement parks!
The animation is by far the best performance I’ve seen in a OP Movie! I was really happy to see some darker colors in the movie because the casino is filled with thousands of golden stuff. So I saw yellow and golden colors the whole time. They have done everything right at this point!
The sound was incredible! Background music, conversations and fights. Everything was sounding like I wore high end headphones the whole time!
There are so many apperances from older arcs and of course I will not tell you who I mean! I loved the costumes because our beloved crew got some noble outfits!
I heard so many laughs during the movie because there are so many funny moments while the straw hats are enjoying the time in the casino!
I really enjoyed One Piece: Gold, because I love to see how the straw hats enjoy their time like a family! The best part are the final fights and they are all insane!
Watch this movie! You’ll see a lot of old characters from the past and a lot of funny moments with luffy and the rest of the crew. read more
This is far better than most of the movies I have recently seen.
Trust me, I know what I'm saying. Even though I pay most of the attention to the story and music, all the elements of the story contributed to extremely outstanding time I had watching this movie.
Because Film Gold is everything that a good Vegas - style movie should have - a thrill, respectful villain, and this outstanding music that deepens the entire experience.
And Film Gold is packed with goodies since the very beginning, when the Strawhats arrive at Gran Tesoro. The giant show, incredible battle sequences (oh yes! Gold has the best fight scenes EVER!), the design of the golden city, giant race, the long - gone characters that we all craved to see on the screen since they were announced to appear...
In fact, the only thing I didn't like that much were the voices of Carina and Baccarat. They didn't match the characters at all, especially Baccarat, who spoke in a very flegmatic, annoying way. I also hoped that Carina would sing something, since she was supposed to be Gran Tesoro's singing queen. Gild Tesoro's inspirational and moving flashbacks also were given too little time, which I guess would be welcomed with open arms by the most of the audience.
Nevertheless, One Piece: Film GOLD is a masterpiece and a crown jewel of entire OP franchise. If you want to see it, definitely do it in the cinema! It's one of those outstanding movies that should be viewed only there... You won't regret.read more
