The second segment mainly involves Tai and another digiDestined friend of his, Izzy. A computer virus sweeps across the internet, effecting a digiEgg, and thus creating an infected digimon. This infected digimon begins to start eating computer information and data, and the two protagonists attempt to stop the digimon, but fail. After the infected digimon manages to get into the American information system and launch two nukes, one at japan and one at Colorado, Tai and Izzy get help from ... Written by Leo

Crazy Credits

In the Japanese version of segment 1: During the credits, Tai (season one style) is standing in a field with his eyes closed. Butterfly (the slightly different version) begins to play in the background. Taichi looks up to see Greymon. He reaches up and hugs him. The camera zooms out to Butterfly and then the scene finally fades to black. See more »

8 October 2003 | by (Here...) – See all my reviews

I really can't bring myself to insult this movie as it got me into anime. Actually, to rephrase that, it got me interested in the idea of anime: Akira got me into PROPER anime.

As for the film, it is actually pretty good. Digimon is one of those anime series that, while aimed at younger audiences, is actually very enjoyable. There are funny moments, and the fight scenes are cool without being too violent.

The film is split into three loosely linked sections, the first really just setting the story up, but containing a cool fight scene at the end. The second part is the longest and most enjoyable: it features Tai and Izzy trying to stop a Digimon with a virus that has taken over the internet. This section contains the best jokes and interaction between the characters, and has a good plot and animation. The third part I didn't like so much, but for the record is takes place later, and deals with the aftermath of what happened, this time set in the USA.

Obviously, Digimon: The Movie is just a kids picture, and the animation and plot are pretty basically, but it will be enjoyed by fans of the series, children who are into anime, scifi, etc. and even my more mature (i.e. older!) anime fans like myself who just want a fun little film to pass the time with.
