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.

Did You Know?


Although the film's original release is in 1.85:1 aspect ratio, the movie was cropped to 1.33:1 for the Region 1 DVD release, The REgion 2 and Region 4 DVD releases are in their original aspect ratio, however. See more »


When Kaiba stated that the ATK of "Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon" increased by 300 for each Dragon-type monster in his Graveyard, he forgot about "Paladin of White Dragon", which is Dragon-Type as well. So the ATK of "Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon" should have increased to 4800, which would have been more than enough to destroy "Sorcerer of Dark Magic", causing Yami Yugi to lose the Duel. See more »


Mokuba Kaiba: I hope you know what you're doing, big brother...
Seto Kaiba: Funny, I was just thinking the exact same thing.

Curiouser and curiouser
25 August 2004 | by BjaminSee all my reviews

I'm very curious.. how many of you people who rated/commented on this movie had even the faintest knowledge of the Yu-Gi-Oh world? I see a lot of people saying how the movie was "just people playing card games" or "they kept explaining how the cards worked during battle" etc... Uhh.. yeah.. that's kinda how it goes, and how it's always BEEN.

I'm not sure why those people went to see the movie, but I can say that as a Yu-Gi-Oh fan, and an avid watcher of the series, there was absolutely nothing wrong with this movie, and I enjoyed it. They stayed true to the style and format, and if they bent a bit of the background in order to fit the movie script, who cares? It's a cartoon.

Bottom line: if you're a Yu-Gi-Oh fan, enjoy!
