  • Awesome fight scenes and a powerful message make this the best Naruto movie I have ever seen.

    This movie is fantastic.

    Finally a Naruto story that truly showcases what this excellent anime can really do. From start to finish I was holding my breath, as if in a constant state of awe at what I was seeing. The fights are incredible, the storyline was both gripping and moving and it looked and sounded fantastic. There has not been a better production of Naruto. This film is just that cool.

    I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to see Naruto at his best.

    I can only wish that the upcoming Naruto vs. Pain battle in the anime gets this sort of attention, because I feel it deserves it. I'm a believer that Naruto arcs should be like mini movies aired on tv - given the right pace and fight scenes they could become so much better. Take note here Studio Pierrot and Tokyo TV.

    At the end of the film Kishimoto Masashi left us with the words; "I hope this movie's story stays with you forever" with a great pic of Naruto looking back at us over his shoulder, wearing his fathers Hokage hat and jacket. We got it Kishi, we got it. SKmoreless
