Storyline

The film is an edited version of three different Japanese short films, which have been combined together. There is narration by a continuing character, Kari. The first segment of the film revolves around the first encounter with a digimon and a fight that occurs between their digimon and another. The two kids, Kari and Tai, raise a fast-growing digimon from an egg to a large, dinosaur-like digimon, which escapes from their house and then has an encounter and a battle with a parrot-like digimon. The second segment mainly involves Tai and another digiDestined friend of his, Izzy. A computer virus sweeps across the internet, effecting a digiEgg, and thus creating an infected digimon. This infected digimon begins to start eating computer information and data, and the two protagonists attempt to stop the digimon, but fail. After the infected digimon manages to get into the American information system and launch two nukes, one at japan and one at Colorado, Tai and Izzy get help from ... Written by Leo

Crazy Credits

In the Japanese version of segment 2: An hour glass mouse pointer is seen. Then a Windows computer screen with a window open on the right side appears. As the credits go by on the left side of the screen, images flash by in the open window. They are: TK and the old couple, Matt getting a hair cut, Joe after his test, Mimi and her family surrounded by bags, Kari and the group of friends at the birthday party, TK and Matt's grandma, random tinted yellow flashes of everyone who sent e-mails (including Yolei and Ryo), Tai's mother sitting at the kitchen table looking at the cake she baked, Izzy leaving Tai's appartment, All the digimon happy with Gennai, and Sora e-mails Tai back. The e-mail reads "Taichi, I'm so sorry. Let's forget it happened. Thanks... Sora." Sora smiles and The mouse pointer closes the open window then shuts down the computer. The screen goes black.

Unexpectedly low rating
21 February 2008 | by steriodasSee all my reviews

I must say, I watched a real lot of movies, and movies that were made from games and/or existing series. As for the Digimon: The Movie it was one of those very few movies, that actually was a great and interesting movie! The story, characters, character design, and especially music and animation was very well done (okay, animation got a little to the bad side in the middle of the movie, but apart from that it was great, especially the human character animation). I am really surprised that this movie didn't got above 7.5 on IMDb rating, I'm not really a fan of Digimon series, not that I don't like it, simply I didn't watch it because of lack of access to it, anyway, the thing is: This is a really great movie, I think the people only rated it lowly because instead of watching it with the "Another New Experience" in mind, they watched it as "Another Movie for Kids", and so they blocked themselves from having fun, and enjoying the movie. I don't think this attitude is right towards any movie which goal isn't offensive towards a group of people (ex: racist, anti Christian, anti semitic, etc.). However I must add that there are respectful people who can rate this movie lowly because of it's clearly fictional story, but hey! It's a movie for teens! Apart from that generalist review I would like to point out few things: I loved the effects used for impact, like all the electronics going crazy every time something from digimon world interfered with "real" world. Also I loved the humor in the movie, it's really great.

I recommend this movie for anyone above 8 years old (because of the fight scenes) and below 100 years old, and I don't recommend it for closed minded people.
