Sadly this isn't what I wanted. When I heard they were making a Yugioh movie and involved the three main characters from the spin- off show I was honestly excited. Then I remembered that I had to see the 4kids version and the not the Japanese. However I kept an open mind and decided to try. Sadly though it's not very good.
1. The movie feels long and boring. I'll be honest I was hoping it would focus more on the original Yugioh cast since most of the audience was old school Yugioh fans but I guess we can watch 5Ds (It's better than GX.) The duel is a four way duel so the turns feel longer and made me start checking my watch.
2. The characters are like what they are in the shows but they should have spent more time together to build their bond. It's called bonds beyond time and yet when they do talk (not counting the duels) it's mostly exposition for the audience. They don't have a bond which is ironic because that's what the movie is called.
3. The villain looks like a mix of Dartz from season 4 of the original and Jack Atlas from 5Ds. So his appearance wasn't creative. Say what you will about Pyramid of Light. At least Anubis looked more menacing sounded more menacing. Plus his goal is to destroy the world of duel monsters because apparently the card game destroyed the future. Which not only sounds unlikely but also how did Duel Monsters destroy the world? How could it destroy the world? We don't get an explanation.
This movie felt like a huge waste of time and someone making fun of you by saying 'we got your money now'
I wish this was more about the characters since it would've worked better as the title says the word 'bond' in it. Sadly though there is no bond. Everything about this movie feels empty. Plus none of this affects anyone's continuing story line in the show.
Sadly I have to give it a 1/10 because it was a 10th anniversary and they forgot about caring for the movie so the fans can enjoy it.
