"Hell" is the place where a person is sent to who committed violent crimes when they were alive. Shinigami are forbidden to go there. One day, prisoners revolt and make their escape to Karakura—the real world—where Ichigo and his friends live in. Ichigo and his friends are defeated one after the other by prisoners with overwhelming power. A mysterious man appears who comes to their rescue. With Kokutou leading the way, Ichigo, Rukia, Uryuu, and Renji marche into Hell to save the world.

Note: Episode 299 of Bleach serves as a prologue to this movie.

Brains versus brawn. Brawn versus brains. Round and around and around they go ...

The most puzzling thing about shounen anime and manga is the distinct lack of heroes with both strength and intelligence, and nowhere is this more prevalent than in the long running franchises. All too often it's the villains who possess this combination of traits, while the hero is nothing more than a super powered idiot with a tendency to rely on guts and brute strength. Risk evaluation, cause and effect, strategy, and other concepts that have more than one syllable seem to be beyond the ken of the typical shounen protagonist, and read more

I'll admit, I had a blast watching this movie! It has a lot of cool fights and an interesting plot. The plot isn't all that unique though, that's the only part that is disappointing. If you've seen the anime Bleach, then you know how their 'arcs' go. Bleach tends to do the whole "someone gets kidnapped, Ichigo has to go fight a ton of people and then save them! The end." That's exactly what happens in this movie too.

It starts off with a somewhat of a flashback to when Ichigo fought Ulquiorra back in Hueco Mundo when he turned into a crazed hollow. That caught read more

Actually there is nothing to tell since it is only a repetition of previous themes only in another setting... Someone has been kidnapped, Ichigo comes to the rescue, enemies have a power up, someone good was in fact evil, Ichigo saves the day in a new form - sound familiar, no?
This film has nothing new, just a few fancy explosions and nice soundtrack.

To begin with I've seen only 2 bleach movies (that one and Fade to Black). As for Fade to Black I was a little disappointed, I expected a lot more from it but nevermind thats a review for movie 4 not 3.
So, for those who havn't seen the battle - Ichigo vs Ulquiorra this will be something like a spoiler so you better watch all the series before the movie.For those who have already seen it you will love that movie.Im not saying that the movie is about Ichigo battling Ulquiorra... Anyway it will also be a favourite movie for all Hollow Ichigo fans. read more
