In their continuing journey to find the feathers that are the fragments of Sakura's lost memory, Syaoran, Kurogane, Fai, and Sakura move through time and space with Mokona. Here, they visit the "Land of the Birdcage," a seemingly peaceful country where people and birds live together, each person having a bird companion. After a boy named Koruri confuses Syaoran and Sakura for "bodyguards" and attacks them, they learn that the king of the country possesses a mysterious power. Princess Tomoyo, Koruri, and the other oppressed citizens, having had their birds taken from them, live in hiding within the forest. In order to take back Sakura's feather, Syaoran and the others stand up against the scheming king.

At the risk of echoing other reviews, the story is pretty basic and doesn't offer anything groundbreaking. As movies are usually given around 2 hours, this would likely have been padded out with more explanation if it had been given the time. In a way, I wish it would have been since what was there already had potential, but given that it wasn't with its 30 or so runtime minutes, I would rather judge this less like a movie and more like an episode or OVA.

While billed as a movie, 'Birdcage Kingdom' is more of an extended episode of the TV series or a slightly longer OVA episode to compliment the XXXHolic Movie. The plot is little more than a chapter from the manga or an episode from the TV series just stripped of most of any depth either one might have.

It's a very simple and basic story of our heroes landing in one of the many "world of the week" seen in an adventure and fighting "big bad of the week" and resolving the plot at the end. Ideal for a short especially for one aimed ...

Unlike its companion (xxxHolic: Midsummer's Night Dream), this film offers nothing to a household name as Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. If possible, avoid it at all costs.

Story (3/10): I'm being nice here, since there is no plot. I am no against plotless movies, that is, movies in which its plot is developed through music, surrealism, and style rather than straightforward, understandable actions that lead the storyline. I'm open to avant-garde storytelling. The xxxHolic movie partially falls into this kind of cinema; however, Tsubasa's film pretends to have a traditional kind of plot but it's so filled with plot holes, nonsensical actions, characters that do things just ...
