It's been some years since the end of the Shinobi War. Naruto Uzumaki is the 7th Hokage of Konohagakure, in this new era. His son, Boruto Uzumaki, will soon enter the Chûnin exams, alongside Sarada Uchiha and the mysterious Mitsuki.
A mysterious group of ninja called the Sora-nin from the Sky Country makes a surprise attack on Konoha. This is because Konoha nearly destroyed the Sky Country during the last Shinobi World... See full summary »
Ninjas with bloodline limits begin disappearing in all the countries and blame points toward the fire nation. By Tsunade's order, Kakashi is sacrificed to prevent an all out war. Naruto fights through friends and foes to prevent his death.
Naruto, Kakashi, Sakura, and Rock Lee are assigned to protect Michiru, the prince of the Land of the Moon, while he travel the world. The prince purchased a tiger Sham and the whole circus, which became the team's protection.
Naruto Uzumaki, is a loud, hyperactive, adolescent ninja who constantly searches for approval and recognition, as well as to become Hokage, who is acknowledged as the leader and strongest of all ninja in the village.
Boruto Uzumaki is the son of Naruto Uzumaki, the Seventh Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. Having heard stories of Naruto's deeds as a hero, Boruto wishes to surpass his father. Following Sarada Uchiha, Boruto meets his father's friend, Sasuke Uchiha, and requests to be trained by him.
As far as personality is concerned, Boruto is a combination between his father, Naruto (somehow childish, ambitious, protective) and his father's best friend and rival, Sasuke (arrogant, elite ninja). He even decides that he doesn't want to become a Hokage like his father, but a shinobi like Sasuke. See more »
After the end credits, there's a final scene that reveals something about one of the characters. See more »
This movie is the close to it all Kishimoto wanted and he wrote it beautifully. He has a knack for that, and for hitting what I feel are the most important emotional points of a story. The characters are consistent and complex, Sasuke has redeemed himself, everyone has a sense of new wisdom to them, and there are several perfect lines of advice for teaching/parenting which is a strong theme in the series. Beautiful, inspiring, and entertaining film, with more than a little homage paid to notable fights and characters. Must see for anyone who has read and/or watched the series, and if you haven't, please give it a try, at least so you can understand the meaning behind what is happening in the film. You will appreciate it so much when you do. Enjoy!
