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 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 »

Awesome!
8 October 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Except for the previews for several horrible kid movies and an excruciating ten minute Angela Anaconda short, Digimon: The Movie was a great film!

I think that my friend and myself were the only people in the theatre who understood it, as the little kids and their parents probably had no idea what was going on or why. It's a deeper movie than I expected, and hard to understand if you haven't been following the TV show to become acquainted with the characters and their world.

The animation is great and fun to look at, there's a lot of comedy, interesting characters and rad monsters. I was surprised to find there was even a little poop.

If you're a fan of the show, you'll probably love every second of the movie, although a lot of it is apt to fly right over little kids' heads.
