Prophecy Of Death!, 20 July 2014
Author: kadiotatsuryu from United States

Naruto Shippūden the movie is noticeably darker than most Naruto movies. It is the first Naruto Shippūden film and fourth Naruto film overall. It was a pretty hyped up movie. The main part of the plot that got fans interested during promotion was the rumor of the death of the series' main character, Naruto Uzumaki. Now the annoying thing about this film is that the plot follows the classic mission for Naruto in the series: protect or escort a client-usually a female-usually a princess. Naruto is assigned with Sakura, Neji and Lee to protect a princess named Shion who has the limited ability to foresee the future, limited meaning that he can only see death. Apparently the priestess/princess wakes up from one in which some unfamiliar blonde leaf Shinobi in orange(Naruto) dies fighting this frigging scary demon called Moryō. It really added a mystery factor to the movie. Hence, Destiny...Prophecies...The Boy's...End!(trailers) To add to the horror aspect of the movie, the antagonist is stirring up some crazy ritual jazz and the priestess Shion in basically an exorcist who has to stop Yomi. Overall, the movie's plot is a general repeat of the whole protect the girl thing, even adding the whole thing where she's mean, spoiled and ungrateful for what he has until Naruto changes her with his ideology. But this is movie is more thought out and is on the darker side of Naruto movies for sure. The glimpses of Naruto Uzumaki's death and his friends mourning at his grave really hype up people to watch the film and find out what happens to the main character and how he avoids such a terrifying end to his life by this dark creature. The constant deathly visions of the near future also keep you curious. Action in this film is pretty cool too as it was nice to see Naruto, Sakura, Neji and Lee(original series main characters) face these new foes who sought world destruction. There are a bunch of cool and epic moments and touching parts too concerning sad back-stories. I do recommend this movie though to most if not any type of viewer as it should be entertaining enough.
