Well this is the 4th One Piece move that was made and IMO it is still the best.

story: The story follows the straw hats pirates while they are on a Island and in need of money, they soon find out that there is a great pirate race. That alone should be good enough to catch anyones interest. The whole movie is amazing and the enemy is one you can hate.

Art: The only reason that I didnt give this a 10 is because One Piece is art style is a little differnt to other animes but it is true to itself and is even better.

Characters: Great read more

STORY: As you probably are expecting since it's a One Piece movie, the story is original and whacky, revolving around a Pirate Race where everything goes. Besides all the issues you could expect from a movie story such as rushed presentation and such, the story does look interesting and even has a nice twist.

ART: It's One Piece with all it's might. On the other hand, it's One Piece with all it's might, which might not make you happy due to it's particular, peculiar and bizarre art style and design. Nontheless, the art is very refreshing and original, you can't deny that. It also features enhanced read more

One Piece Movie 4: Dead End no Bouken Review

Story (5/10) Mediocre

I thought the beginning plot for this movie was fine at first and they hype up this Dead End Adventure, the Pirate Ship Race (which gets interrupted and just felt bland) and the story of Shuraiya and his backstory and what not. I think with these three written on paper it sounds like it should be a good movie but I personally felt it fell short in the execution department as certain parts felt drawn out all of characters in the straw hat character didn't really do anything in this movie and I felt read more

Story: As far as One Piece movies go before this one, this story is the most fresh and close to cannon as possible. The Straw Hats, short on money due to their captains endless stomach, enter a pirate race in order to earn some fast cash. Only, this race isn't what it's cracked up to be. Unlike the last few movies before this one, which follow pretty much the same design, this movie seems to be different and unique.

Art: The art was great and kept with the original animation, with some enhancements due to being a movie. There was some lazy read more
