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!
