Storyline

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

Goofs

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 »

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 »

User Reviews

Animation at its best
21 February 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I'll start with the bad news. Anyone who has never seen the series could get very confused.

Glad thats over. Digimon is a great movie, the sound track is awesome, the comedy is classic and the story line rocks.

The animation harks back to the Japanese style of 10/20 years ago, and is less simple and Americanised than the series. The script is full of one liners and hilarious slapstick. The humour will have kids and adults laughing out loud so parents can have a good time too.

The action is very fast paced and this where non-fans could fall down. It could get a little confusing even avid watchers of the show could get lost.

This was nothing like Pokemon, and cannot be called a rip off as there is no similarity apart from "mon" being in the title. But I greatly advise any fan off the growing "mon" world to see this one.
