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 »

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
