Very nice graphics but the movie is not up to par with the others.
8 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have two younger siblings (aged 5 and 8) who LOVE Pokémon. They watch the TV show every day without fail, have stuffed animals, the video games, pictures on their walls, and they can tell you about almost every Pokémon there is.

Being 20, I seen Pokémon as a child and liked it as well, so I thought I'd go and rent some of the older movies to show them the originals. Well, getting there I realized there were 12 and decided to get them all. We watched them out of order but it didn't really matter. Over the course of a weekend, the 4th movie we seen was Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. My 5 year old brother wanted to see this and was excited about the ranger and the pirates.

The beginning of the movie made it seem like we were in for a good one but after about a half hour the whole thing got old. I thought it was just me being older and not wanting to see it but it didn't keep the kids' interest and they told me this one was boring. We ended up finishing the movie but the last 20 minutes were filled with 'is the movie done yet?" These kids LOVED the other ones we've seen and the only ones we haven't are the next 2 after this. They still beg to see more Pokémon movies which I plan on showing them the final 2 today, but this one was by far their LEAST favourite. It just kept on going! It's a bit longer than the rest of the movies and I think if they cut the story down to the length the rest of the movies are, maybe it would have been paced well enough to keep their interest. It would get interesting and then not, the characters introduced were annoying, and the Pokémon they find cries throughout the first hour which even got annoying for my baby loving 8-year-old sister (she told me it needed to stop crying).

Ultimately, the graphics are VERY good compared to the previous movies, but the characters tended to get annoying and this made it least enjoyable for me and the two little ones.
