An Uninspired Effort with Very Little to Offer
22 June 2016 | by Owen OgletreeSee all my reviews

This Pokémon adventure pretty much mostly falls flat. This is one of only two Pokémon movies that I would say I genuinely dislike. It's very apparent that very little effort was put into this one.

The premise is pretty lame. Keldeo is determined to become a "Sword of Justice" and to become one, he must defeat the monster Kyurem. Ash and the gang tag along for no reason other than that the plot requires it.

The three "Swords of Justice" that have been training Keldeo are all boring, one-dimensional characters that were not explored or developed properly, and we don't even get to see much of them. Kyurem also isn't given much depth, and we get no back story about him whatsoever.

There are many things that don't work and are done only to keep the plot moving, such as the "train tunnel ex machina" scene and the gang conveniently finding a blimp to get away in from an abandoned museum (how did they get the blimp to even work anyway?!).

The script is very weak and contains too much obligatory dialogue. The use of flashbacks in this film is far too numerous and is even very strange in some instances. The plot kind of meanders and mostly feels like an extended TV episode. It also didn't help that Iris and Cilan are in the movie.

There are some all right action scenes and the animation is pretty nice, but at this point, that doesn't really cut it anymore.

This is one of the worst Pokémon movies, if not the worst. This film has very little to offer even the least demanding of Pokémon fans. I just wish more thought and care was put into this. Recommended ONLY to people who want to see every single Pokémon movie, but have your expectations considerably lowered.

RATING: D+
