Storyline

Yugi, a smaller than average high school student, and an easy target for bullies, is given an ancient Egyptian riddle called the "Millennium Puzzle" by his grandfather, a local game shop manager. Yugi pieces the puzzle together and unexpectedly becomes the powerful "Game King." Now when Yugi gets into sticky situations, the "Game King" takes over and protects Yugi and his friends.

Remember who this is made for!
28 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is a movie for KIDS. Adults aren't supposed to be mesmerized by a spectacular plot and stirring dialogue. It is an hour and a half of excrutiating hell for parents and absolute nirvana for kids who love the card game and the TV show. It is a way to get more kids into the card game and, thus, make more money.

Just remember, adults bring a pillow for a much needed nap (or at least a cell phone with games on it!) and don't buy the kids popcorn and drinks. Mine was too fascinated by the movie to remember to eat the candy (which went straight to my butt) or drink the lemonade (which was thrown out).
