The crew comes upon Crown Island where the animals can talk and they makes Chopper their new king. But there are human hunters there also looking for the legendary horns that will give the person who consumes it immense power. Luffy and friends must stop them from destroying this animal kingdom.
This review does not contain any spoiler, so feel free to read it.
Let's talk about "One Piece: Chinjuujima no Chopper Oukoku", the third One Piece's movie.
This movie is like the first two movies, it only lasts barely one hour. And to be honest, it was enough...
This movie, released in 2002, is centered on Chopper which became the new king of a kingdom that is just an island filled with animals (well, except a living human among them).
The story is very basic, and suffers from an unattractive scenario that will never seduce us.
The overall humor of the movie is troublesome, and the actions performed by the protagonists are constantly meaningless.
I've never been a fan of the art in one piece, in general, and this movie is not an exception.
It's colourful, animals are poorly drawn, and wicked people in this movie are pathetically ugly and without charisma
Best thing of the movie. Nothing special, nothing notable.
Nevertheless, I can not deny that music in general , in this movie, liberates a very nice nostalgic feeling, which make me think of an pleasant 80's OST!
(I do not talk about One Piece's character in general, but only about those who appear in this movie.)
They are all PATHETIC.
Mobambi, the main character in this film is annoying as f... and his story is just ridiculous. We don't care about him, and we'll never be.
Beside, we don't care about animals, because they're not talking, and because they are useless.
Furthermore, the wicked.... any charisma, useless, as weak as an atrophied cow.... I just want to forget them.
This movie is annoying, frustrating, boring...
I never managed to get into it , and the time seemed interminable .
"One Piece: Chinjuujima no Chopper Oukoku" is a bad One Piece movie, and a very very very bad movie in general.
Even if you want to watch every One Piece movies, I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU TO WATCH IT. You'll waste your time, with an hideous way...read more
One Piece: Chopper Kingdom of Strange Animal Island is like watching an extended episode of the One Piece and that's why it's a worth the watch. In truth fans of One Piece will get a bigger kick out of watching this then people who aren't familiar with the anime, it's more or less made for them. The story in the film is typical One Piece affair with one thing unexpected happening, resulting in the crew trying to resolve the situation while something else happens that will interlock with the main plot and then the situation is sorted through the power of courage and friendship.
Watching this was just like watching the series except with a higher degree of animation and it is the quality of animation that makes the film shine. One Piece episodes around the time of 2002 looked okay but the movie quality allows for some really smooth character animation and richer colours for backgrounds which really adds to the overall experience. The characters in the film are just as good as they are in the series and in terms of sound and music they happen to be in good supply too. Overall I really liked the film just because it was One Piece in a higher quality animation; it's definitely worth the watch if you can't get enough of the One Piece adventures.read more
According to the One Piece wiki, this movie is the least popular of the current twelve. Consequently, I went into it with pretty much zero expectations but was pleasantly surprised; though it’s not cinema gold, Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals was far more enjoyable than I thought it would be.
The plot is lackluster, and definitely the weakest aspect of the film. Honestly, one could probably tell that from the title. The narrative is silly and convoluted and does not fit in with the One Piece universe, which is saying something since the One Piece universe allows for a lot of silliness. The villains and movie-exclusive side characters are weak and unmemorable, and the two primary talking animal characters just come off as pointless.
Bonds between nakama are pretty much the backbone of One Piece, carrying the audience through occasional bouts of mediocrity. It is undoubtedly the most important aspect of the show and all of the franchise’s additional installments. What is great about this movie is that the chemistry between the Straw Hats is very natural, and touching more times than one would expect. Sanji and Zoro stand out the most in that regard. Everyone has a role in the plot, even though they don’t all get fight scenes. Luffy is actually the one crew member that stands out the least; Luffy is his normal lovely Luffy self and Mayumi Tanaka is a goddess as usual, but he does not do anything out of the ordinary when it comes to his role in the story.
Fight scenes in this movie are short and generally unimpressive, but they are still fun to watch. Fights including Sanji and Zoro pretty much always have some pay off. Zoro’s last little battle with one of the henchmen was definitely neat, and Sanji’s was as well. Mainly because of the return of a certain princely alter ego. Unnecessary, but still magnificent.
As a side note, the ending credits are cute and honestly justify watching the movie anyway, though I am a sucker for stuff like that.
Though the plot of Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals is lacking, strong character interactions and entertaining fight scenes almost eclipse it and make this movie worth watching. My overall rating for it would be much higher if the plot was even the slightest bit stronger.
One Piece Movie 3 : Chinjuujima no Chopper Oukoku Review
Story (6/10) Fair
The story in the third movie of One Piece is fair, as you can tell this movie is Tony Tony Chopper orientated it'll focus on him a lot more than the other characters, which is fine but I do think the fact that Chopper doesn't get the final shine against the main antagonist in this movie it kind of disappointed me. I understand that Chopper isn't that type of character and he did give it his all and when he was actually fighting the main antagonist he was use all of his abilities. I'm just saying that it would have been cool in that One Piece movie that goes down have the Tony Tony Chopper One Piece movie that he would have been the one to do the concluding blow but it is what it is.
Art and Animation (7/10) Good
For the 3rd movie in the One Piece Movies and literally coming out almost exactly a year after it's previous movie you would assumed that it would look a tad bit more updated than the last one. When it actuality the art style in this one reminds me more of the first movie without it's animation. The animation in this one I think was better than the 2nd movie but not as good as the first. Either way it's still good but for movie standards it definitely could have been better but I think since they are farting these movies out almost annually now that quality when it comes to animation wouldn't be seen that often even by anime movie standards.
Sound (8/10) Very Good
More Specifically (8.5/10) Very Good+
The authentic JP voices and BGM are all heard in this movie which required and applaud but the reason why I'm giving this section just a little extra points is because of the outro music played at the end of the movie stood out to me it was very very good.
Characters (9/10) Great
The Straw Hat Crew is slowly getting bigger as this is the first movie Chopper debuts in. All of the characters we know up to this point are present and are entertaining nothing really wrong with them. The movie characters and villains ok not better than the previous movies but not bad enough to nitpick on any level in my opinion.
Enjoyment (7/10) Good
This movie didn't have me at the edge of my seat but it didn't put me to sleep either. It was entertaining enough for me not to feel like I wasted my time with it. I couldn't recommend this movie to anyone but if someone ask me how I enjoyed I wouldn't say I didn't enjoy it. The movie was over before I knew it so it didn't felt like it dragged on anywhere so that's a good thing in my book because to other two I felt had that issue to an extent.
Overall (7/10) Good
More Specifically (7.50/10) Good+
Since we are around the point where these movies are going to come out annually I'm sure the quality most likely will drop. I've heard the only two movies I should really judge is Strong World and Film Z any other One Piece movie is debatable if they can be considered recommendation quality and so far I can agree with this statement if you are a fan of One Piece I can so give it a shot in the dark with this one but if you are looking for something really good this might not suffice you on that level but it's not bad if that counts for anything. read more
