Perfect for what it is...
27 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

The movie was perfect, for what it is meant to be -- 90 minutes of excitement for adolescent boys. Not everything on the screen needs to be Citizen Kane. In a summer serverely lacking big screen interest for males under 13 Yu-Gi-Oh! was just what the doctor ordered.

If you've never seen the show you're going to be lost. Actually, you're going to be lost unless you're a fan. Like most anime Yu-Gi-Oh! is serialized in nature. The movie takes place after the current season of the weekly TV series. In this respect, the timing could have been better. Fans of the cartoon don't yet know that Yugi has won the three Egyptian God Cards, which are pivotal to the plot of the movie. Also, cut scenes early in the movie also let us know the fates of other characters in the cartoon -- fates that are up in the air until the new season starts, a month after the release of the movie.

The characters in the movie are voiced by the same actors as the cartoon -- very important to the young viewers. And it was great to see some old favorite characters back in action.
