Three Japanese movies in one. There is narration by a continuing character, Kari. The first involes an encounter with a digimon of the third kind. The two kids Kari and Tai, raise this fast growing digimon from egg to giant monster. It's a good thing it showed up too, as an awsome fight ends this segment. The second of the movies involves Tai and Izzy. Some sort of computer virus sweeps th internet. It turns out to be a digimon. The digimon are uploaded to the internet and Tai tries to get others to help. Matt and T.K. help as well, with some more outstanding fight scenes. The third and Final segment starts in N.Y. with Kari and T.K., now years older, and they see 2 digimon fighitng and a kid with them. They try to follow him and they get there friends to follow as well. One of the new digimon belongs to Willis, the other, does as well, except this digimon seems to have a virus. The kids find a new power and once again, the fight scenes look spectacular. Written by chrombot

Did You Know?


The references to Willis were not in the original Japanese version, because "Our war game" was in continuity and "Hurricane Touchdown" was out of continuity, therefore in "Our War Game" Willis/Wallace did not exist. See more »


On the back of the video box, the movie says that the film's storyline is highlighted behind the nuclear missiles in the movie and a kidnapping plot. The kidnapping never happened in the American version, as it was edited out in the final release for American audiences. See more »


Kari: My brother and I had a give-and-take relationship. I would give, and he would take.

Funny, enjoyable, and is really just three episodes
30 January 2002 | by (Calgary) – See all my reviews

It took me forever to figure it out, but after enough searching, I found out why.

I found that the movie was a lot like the show, so close that it seemed like they had just thrown three episodes together. The only reason I put up with this, these three 'episodes' were effectively on their own and were referred to briefely in the series (well, 2 of them were).

It ends up that I was half right. after searching, I found out that it isn't three episodes strung together, but currently there are some 6 digimon 'movies' released in Japan, and three of them are in this single movie that we saw in the western world. It seems that the Japanese form of a movie is 30 minutes long (how this works is beyond me).

Outside that, it was enjoyable. I had fun watching it, taping it and watching it again, and catching all the jokes they had. It's what makes the series enjoyable, and it sure saved the movie.
