After currently watching this on Blu-Ray the movie adaptation of the hit Nintendo DS games lives true to what The Prof is all about. This whole new adventure did not turn out to what I have expected, but it turned out better and very enjoyable. The story is just as gripping and interesting as the games themselves and filled with interesting characters new and old and off course what made the game so popular PUZZLES!! they were also a major factor of the story, in search for eternal life Layton and Luke encounter a number of puzzles on the way, that is when the movie goes back to it's roots as when it was a game, making you almost think your playing it, even though Layton and Luke solve them within minutes it was still enjoyable trying to guess the answer and seeing The Professor and his apprentice in action. Over all I highly recommend this movie to all fans of the series, and even people who never played the games and enjoy anime. With Level-5's simplistic character design would not only attract the attention of children but for adults of all ages, a fun full feature length for anyone.
