I agree with the guy above me. It definitely reminded me of digimon. It was pretty captivating.

This is a very wonderful movie. It does a lot of things right, and I was entertained throughout. Only real problem with it is that it's pretty unoriginal, but that can be forgiven.

This film? Amazing.
Its ending? Unoriginal, and thus brought my rating of it from 5/5 to 4/5. -_-

But otherwise, very well done.

I was lucky enough to watch this movie at the NYICFF and was absolutely amazed. I felt and showed so much emotion throughout the film. I also had the honor to meet Mamoru Hosoda. He's such a great guy~ <3 (Btw, he has a twitter, ya'll!)

It was hilarious how at the Q&A a little girl asked why Kenji had a nosebleed at the end of the film. ROFLMAO

Hosoda's answer: " *chuckles* Uh....He was giving it his all, that's why." xDDDD

Anywho, I can't wait to get this once it comes out on DVD. =)

Truly amazing and so wonderful, the story also focus on the family and the camaraderie.
At 1st it was quite boring. But as long as you watch this, you will see how the movie became so good. I recommended this movie is a must watch.
Reviews later on.

That was brilliant. Very freaking detailed, a lot of work must've gone into making this movie. I loved it.

Was amazing and so many other words I want to type but wont. I just loved the aspect of the family in the show and how everything seemed to just work together in of itself. Just amazing.

That must have been the most epic anime movie I've seen that doesn't deal with mecha.
Will definitely buy this movie. I bet my parents will even enjoy this if I show this to them.

This movie has got to win some Best Animation Feature awards or else.

This movie practically screamed "Digimon Movie-remake" to me, and I see it has for others. Being the same director and all, I can't imagine how he thought this movie would fare well being literally the exact same thing. Not saying its a bad thing, but the director really didn't stretch out his creativity as much as I would have liked. I had high expectations for this movie, and they did fall a little short.
Comparisons aside, the movie was well done. The animation was splendid, however too much 3D CG distracted me a little bit, but understanding why there was so much (them being in a digital world), I got over it. It was interesting enough and appealing to children, however had a story that wouldn't bore adults.
Overall, a solid 8/10.

This was pretty much my impression as well.
You could really tell that this is what Mamoru Hosoda had envisioned for the Digimon movie he had previously directed. That by comparison ultimately was the prototype. Summer Wars I'd say is definitely something that the whole family can enjoy. It was very refreshing and a thoroughly enjoyed it! 10/10

I LOVED this. The details like the translations on the speech bubbles were amazing, from what I could read they were spot on translations as well! (though I could only read 3 of them ^^;)

The ninja squid was awesome.

This was an entertaining movie, although the same plot was used in the Digimon movie...
This movie, to me, is just a remake of Digimon Adventure - Bokura no War Game - the antagonist is a digital virus that is playing a game with human lives, a couple at the end (Kenji and Natsuki/ Taichi and Sora), dealing with a nuclear type explosion, and not to mention the mass of people who decide to help after seeing how powerful the protagonists are.

But all in all, this movie was really enjoyable to watch, time did fly by watching this.

I can see why it won so many awards. The animation was insane, the movie was well but together. I never read the manga, but it seems to have a good plot, even though it was too predictable. I enjoyed this movie. Certainly a movie to recommend to friends.

Going into it I wasn't expecting too much from this movie, but that was seriously entertaining. I only planned on watching part of the movie tonight and watching the rest later but I was so into it that I completely forgot lol

Anyway, one of the best movies I've seen, including live action. I had a lot of fun watching it.

I just repeat this;

Goo4 said:
You should'nt watch summer wars with much expectation. It's nothing new; just rehash of something that has been already repeated. I only see summer wars as a great 'family' movie. It is entertaining, but if you are expecting something very innovative, you will definitely be disappointed.

Again, this movie's entertainment doubles when you watch it with your family, and I think that's the intention of Hosoda for this whole movie.
To sum up, it was really entertaining family movie, no, the best family oriented movie I've ever seen now-a-days. However, there are huge lack of uniqueness and complexity in plot or concept.

This gets 8/10, but for the plot only, I only give about 6/10. However, there were some very good improvements on CG arts and BG design and audio track was also in topnotch. and most of all, it was really entertaining.

DEAR GOD, THERE'S FUCKING DIGIMON WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!
It seems like they started with an original story, that was good enough, and then they ran out of ideas and just threw Bokura no War Game in.
I still liked the movie, the art and animation are both pretty, the idea is interesting since the begining, and the characters are well developed and original, but this evident recycling thing made me mad. I loved this Digimon movie, and it should have been treated as serious business for all the eternity.

God, I was reminded so many times of Digimon - Bokura no War Game. Awesome movie. Hosoda is an awesome director, directing some of my most favourite anime movies (aside from Miyazaki), like TokiKake and One Piece movie 6.

Ho hum. It was pretty good i guess. Didn't really like the voice actors too much (Natsuki's in particular), but i guess the plot was reasonable. Gave it 8/10, but might drop it to 7 depending on how i feel later.

I think Ghibli stuff is better, though i haven't watched one of them in a while. I think i preferred TGWLTT to this as well.

Art, Soundtrack, the Characters were great. The plot was a little lacking in the original side but other than that it was awesome. 9/10 :)

Also I disagree with others saying it was a little far fetched in how so much 'power' could be available in that community oz. Well... just pretend oz is the internet. Instead of having a more invisible effect its a lot more noticeable. Although its easier to make that argument when there are graphics to describe everything, along with 3-d space.

The only counter-offer would be that the internet isn't fully connected that your user account transfers to any website you visit... yet...

This movie was pretty good. I liked how the characters of the cast came out at times and the interactions between the grandmother and Wabisuke. It certainly appealed to a lot of sad emotions.
