Seriously, the need to stop letting others make sequels or spin-offs. It's like this title was created by a bunch of retards.(Oh well, what do I know about crappy sequels.)
Filling the first 30 minutes was original shots from the TV series was the worst thing that could ever happen(The original series was awesome by the way). I mean you really can't tell that epic story in 30 minutes of poorly cut footage. Moreover, it was done in a wrong chronological order. And as if it wasn't bad enough, it ended at a fan favorite scene and then abruptly switched to the actual movie in a way that didn't make the slightest sense.
The real new parts in the movie was a disaster. An adventurous Nadia that loved the nature working in a newspaper publisher in a city? The trio back in old thieving business without even knowing what their clients really were, and in the process attacked Jean? Oh come on!
If I don't complain about the consistency of the characters here, there are still a lot to complain about. Vehicle battles were abysmal. Everything about the secret base and the replicants in the woods were a joke. The core character was supposed to be Fuzzy.(I don't blame the Japanese for choosing a lousy name. They have their own language.) However as it turns out she didn't have a thing to do with the story. The bad guys captured her for no reasons at all and she didn't speak enough for us to make any impressions on her. The saving her father and his grieving part was the scenes that should be made touching and meaningful easily. I mean how can anyone make them tasteless? They did.
Fortunately, one thing that we've been expecting since Fuzzy showed up did eventually happen: Nadia's displeased look when she sees Fuzzy with Jean.
Avoid this title if you want to enjoy Nadia - The Secret of Blue Water. If you really have to. At least watch it after you've finished the original series. You only live once and have one soul. This and especially the first 30 minutes steal away some of it.
