wasn't able to capture the emotions from the original
(which was just amazing)

so in one sentence my review for this would be that
"it misses the mark set by its predecessor"

with all it's faults Pokémon: The First Movie - Mewtwo Strikes Back was one of the few movies i was able to enjoy even as a adult because it was a great nostalgia trip the summation of my childhood

in the case of this movie it's Absolutely soulless no emphasis was placed on improving the narrative they just added few useless extended scenes which only let the movie drag on and on with the read more

Does Pokémon really need an introduction at this point? It's been around for over 20 years, it's a monolith in the world of marketing. But it was a huge hit in Japan when it first came out, and in 1999, it took the rest of the world by storm. So much so, that on November 10, 1999, the first film, “Mewtwo Strikes Back”, came out a year in America after its debut in Japan, with a second film having already been in Japanese theaters for months. But children outside of Japan didn't know about that, the Internet was still young at the time. All we read more

This movie is a CGI remake of the very first Pokemon movie. And that's where the problem lies. If this were an original movie, then I would say it's good (seeing as it's a remake of the original, and I liked the original, it wouldn't make sense to say anything else). However, this is being rated as a remake to that original. It is for that reason that I would say that this doesn't quite hit the heights that it could have.

If a remake is going to be made, we need a reason to watch it. For instance, an HD remake gives a good incentive read more

This movie fails as a shot-for-shot remake. The bigger of its two problems is the removal of all the interesting scenes which thematically underpinned the first movie. There was a big (but somewhat silent) backlash when fans learned that the American localization (and all the subsequent localizations from it) gutted the first film by removing ten minutes of footage due to it being "too challenging" for kids. This movie does exactly the same, but at the Japanese source. The soul of the first Pokemon movie is not here. This adaptation does not work thematically and shows contempt to its source material. No one sane should read more
