This movie is not, technically, a very good movie. The art's pretty decent -- one can tell they had a higher budget for this movie than for the TV series -- the soundtrack's fine but not outstanding, the characterization is about what you'd expect for a Prince of Tennis movie (i.e. minimal), and the plot is frankly ridiculous.

In fact, this movie is ridiculous and over-the-top in a number of ways, and that's exactly what's so great about it. It takes the "junior high school tennis is serious and manly!" theme of the TV series and turns it up to eleven in ways that deny logic, read more

I'm a big fan of the series, but a bit disappointed with this movie...
I think the people who made this movie is a bit too hurried to decide on the characters.
They made this filler character, Ryoga Echizen, Ryoma's older adopted brother. In the movie he entered ryoma's house when he was a kid. Then Ryoga went missing through the entire series... come back for a brief moment on the movie, then went missing again...

It's just too weird...

This movie is totally awesome. With fighting included in tennis, this just excites me more while I was watching the movie. However, there's 2 flaws & disappointments in this movie. 1, the art is bad. Not that bad, but bad. Just by looking at the characters in the anime, example - Inui, you'll know that the author just rushed through some parts of the anime. Second bad thing of the anime (movie): PREDICTIONS. In my opinion, I already know what'll happen, it's so obvious. But every main character nearly always wins. But why is this obvious ....? Judging by Echizen Ryoma and Echizen Ryoga's looks, read more

This was just so ridiculous and over the top but I loved it, It was as if I was watching a Prince of Tennis X Dragon ball crossover during the final match and it was perfect I couldn't stop myself from laughing.

If you don't take this seriously and you just want something to switch your brain off to with decent animation I guaranty that you'll be satisfied.

I also feel that you can easily enjoy this without having watched prince of tennis, however I suggest watching it as it's an amazing sports anime that I wish more people would talk about.
