Deku and All Might receive an invitation to I-Expo, the world’s leading exhibition of Quirk abilities and hero item innovations! Amid the excitement, sponsors, and pros from all over, Deku meets Melissa, a girl who is Quirkless just like he once was. Suddenly, I-Expo’s top-of-the-line security system gets hacked by villains, and a sinister plan is set in motion. It’s a serious threat to hero society, and one man holds the key to it all—the symbol of peace, All Might.
Not the greatest anime movie I've seen, but definitely far from the worse. The plot is kind of predictable but the fact that it's not a filler movie that pulled a plot out of its arse, it actually provides us some background story of All Might and adds to his characterization earns an 8/10 from me.
Story: 8/10 Plot didn't really get me super excited as I watched (maybe I was expecting too much after seeing the plot of this series). The movie's plot is rather simple. Twists are predictable. But the fights and character interaction makes up those flaws.
Art: 7/10 some part of the art
gets super bad, like those screenshots of Naruto va Pain where the character faces are all messed up and weird. But for the most part the art is pretty good, especially for the final battle. Man, it's great! The California Smash is epic too!
Sound: 9/10 Even till now, the ending song's still stuck in my head. I can hum it right now if you want... and the voice actors are great of course, as always.
Character: 9/10 Younger All Might. That sums it up why it's good.
Enjoyment: 8/10 I had high expectations of it and wasn't...exactly disappointed so I'm giving it an 8. Particularly that Theme Park place looks interesting, deffo wanna go if possible. That's perhaps the part I enjoyed the most, watching Bakugo, Kirishima, Todoroki, and Izuku fight their way to the top spot and all those cool gadgets Izuku tried on lol.
Overall: 8/10 Not bad for a first movie. Definitely worth the watch. You'll learn quite a lot about the bnha world. Still, I'm hoping the next movie will be better.
Boku no Hero Academia the Movie: Futari no Hero is predictable, from the very beginning, but still a typical shounen movie that will make you smile.
It's an enjoyable movie, but this is overshadowed by the fact the artwork looks like a budget episode from the series (most of the time anime movies have better animation, but I find it's the opposite here).
They introduce the new characters well. Melissa despite being a little bland you can get behind her actions. Dave as well, when you find out his motivation and relationship with All Might.
Though I find the movie gives quite a bit
of clunky dialogue with the characters, and at times it seems awkward, as it feels like the characters are just speaking "exposition". There's also a large beginning portion of the movie in the first act dedicated to the the same flashbacks you've seen a hundred times in the anime.
I think the stories main problem is adding almost to many of the classmates, some of the kids from UA just happen to be on the Island, and aren't intricate to the plot at all it's just a shot of them in the hotel room, and it's kind of a pointless addition. The characters who take part in the final fight have a purpose, and as they move up the floors you can get behind their actions, but it almost feels they brought to many of them, and would have done better with a tighter cast of just five of them.
The other problem is, a lot of the plot is just predictable at the end, you can almost see every turn coming. The final fight also used 'the power of friendship' trope that I often find the show usually doesn't resort to, making the final encounter almost a bit redundant as it keeps going.
The use of the soundtrack to kind of felt like they were checking off items in a box, making sure to hit every one of the the classic music from the series. At times these are used epic, other times though it feels really out of place and like they should have used an original track and not tried to force one we've already heard that doesn't quite fit the scene.
Overall it is a good movie with a few quick laughs (also a lot more guns then ever seen before, they really are in America now, huh), but the art almost makes it feel like a TV special and like the movie was rushed because of all the hype going on with the series. But if you like the anime, you'll probably like the movie, so it's worth taking a look.
I watched this movie some days ago and it's one of the worst movies I have watched in a long time and entirely just feels like a cheap cash grab.
The story is the first big problem with the movie because the movie relies completely on plot conveniences and it's incredible just how predictable everything is I literally knew how everything will end in the first 10 minutes of watching it.
Simply put, the art/animations in this movie are horrendous and it's unbelievable that Studio Bones released it like this. In some scenes they used really ugly looking CGI which didn't fit at all and somehow it
feels like they just didn't cared about the movie at all and just wanted to get it quickly released to cash in on bnha fans which is a shame because the main series looks actually amazing at parts.
The OST in the movie is good and it has a lot of nice tracks which all fit to the scenes in which they play and there isn't much more to say about the OST, but it is the strongest part of the movie.
The movie features for the most part the same characters we know from the series and it mostly seemed like rather bland fanservice that everyone was coincidentally there and the new characters in the movie were all pretty 1 dimensional and really nothing note worthy.
I absolutely did not enjoy this movie and it is beyond me how anyone out there could enjoy it if they watched the same movie as I did and it even makes me sad that the movie was such a disappointment because the main series had a lot of really good moments, but this movie didn't had any.
Overall the movie is a 1/10 for me and I guess the movie was just a quick cash grab from studio bones so they have budget for Mob Psycho S2.
This movie is the very definition of mediocre.
First of all, right off the bat I'm gonna say, Boku No Hero is a series I deeply enjoy. Even tho I clearly understand It's pretty cliche and by-the-books, it's been overall nicely paced and competently directed. So, when I saw they were going to make a movie I became very excited. A movie has the perfect runtime to present a self contained story, where we can get to know our favorite characters in a more intimate way. The anime follows the events of the manga religiously, so I understand why there's no much room to improve upon
the source material.
That's why I really looked forward to this movie. Right from the start we know this film it's pretty much strictly tied to what it can and can't do. This happens between the 2nd and 3rd season, so pretty much nothing of importance can happen during it's runtime, as it needs to left us right where we were at the beginning. And because of that of that the scale and scope of the events presented don't really have much impact in the universe. However, this necessarily didn't had to be bad, as it may not had an impact in the world but in characters of this universe.
However, this is where the movie fails for me. this feels like 4 episodes stitched together. events just happen one after another with not much rhyme or reason. Just like in the show, there's no much depth to our cast at all. All of our dear students are the same archetypes we know. This is not itself bad, however, this felt like a really missed opportunity to flesh out those that we don't know very well beyond face value. Just like in the show, we're just there to watch Midoriya save the day and in a more minor way Todoroki and Bakugo being cool and stuff. Everyone else is just a backdrop nedeed in order to shove them in the promotional material.
Ultimately this doesn't feel like it had any right to exist beyond banking on the popularity of the show.
Maybe you could say, "Hey, that's pretty stupid. 99% of the anime out there exists only because of committees wanting to make some bucks."
And in a certain way, you're right. Money is the motor that moves the anime industry. However, I just can't let this movie go without guilt. There's so much media out there that exists with the sole purpose of making a profit on an already established franchise that is also very well made and has some value beyond the monetary gain.
Something like Gundam 0080 War In The Pocket (Which I recently reviewed, *wink wink*) comes to mind. Not driven by the major events of a story we have been told already (The O.Y.W.) but by a cast of characters that are developed, that we root for and like. None of this can be found in Futari No Hero. I can't recommend it if you're not a fan. Hell, I can't recommend it even if you are fan. There's nothing to be gained from this watching experience.
TL;DR: Imagine 4 bland forgettable shonen anime filler episodes. But instead of putting them awkwardly during the events of the show they just decide to stitch them together and release them as a bland forgettable movie.
