The film is an edited version of three different Japanese short films, which have been combined together. There is narration by a continuing character, Kari. The first segment of the film revolves around the first encounter with a digimon and a fight that occurs between their digimon and another. The two kids, Kari and Tai, raise a fast-growing digimon from an egg to a large, dinosaur-like digimon, which escapes from their house and then has an encounter and a battle with a parrot-like digimon. 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 2: An hour glass mouse pointer is seen. Then a Windows computer screen with a window open on the right side appears. As the credits go by on the left side of the screen, images flash by in the open window. They are: TK and the old couple, Matt getting a hair cut, Joe after his test, Mimi and her family surrounded by bags, Kari and the group of friends at the birthday party, TK and Matt's grandma, random tinted yellow flashes of everyone who sent e-mails (including Yolei and Ryo), Tai's mother sitting at the kitchen table looking at the cake she baked, Izzy leaving Tai's appartment, All the digimon happy with Gennai, and Sora e-mails Tai back. The e-mail reads "Taichi, I'm so sorry. Let's forget it happened. Thanks... Sora." Sora smiles and The mouse pointer closes the open window then shuts down the computer. The screen goes black.

Brilliant!
12 June 2006 | by (Norfolk, England) – See all my reviews

I was watching this movie today, having not seen it for about two years, and I noticed a LOT more in it this time than when I last saw it:

1. The stunning animation. Not the Americanised, simplistic anime but a prettier and more detailed style. Smoother animation, too.

2. The plot - a more developed version of what you get on the series, which is what fans like to see! :)

3. The humour! I have always loved Digimon's humour and it is definitely improved further in this movie.

4. The fight scenes are as good as ever!

5. Great soundtrack! (apart from that Digimon Rap thing at the start - it got on my nerves o_O;;)

So, overall, this movie is great entertainment. Obviously I recommend this especially to Digimon fans but it also appeals to other audiences. I myself was a Digimon fan about 6 years ago, and hadn't seen it, and when I saw the old videos I have of the series and the movie recently after pulling them out of my shelves I remembered why I liked Digimon so much :D As everyone else has said, beats Pokemon any day! And this is coming from an ex-Pokemon fan too! Maybe the reason it beats Pokemon (apart from the reasons above) is because Digimon shows a lot more human emotion, rather than just fight fight fight pull Brock away from girls and more fighting and getting shiny badges.

Three word summary: BIG Digimon adventure
