This movie certainly won't be to everyones taste, and it helps to have a bit of knowledge about the Digimon background (From the T.V series 1 and 2)if you're to understand any of it. But, for a hard core fan, and certainly anyone new who's into colourful anmie fun - with a cool soundtrack - this is a must see.
The movie does try to act as a stand alone film in its own right, with a feeble, if not graphic and exciting explanation of what Digimon are at the beginning. The story then progresses 4 years into the realms of series 1 and the beginnings of a plot. It seems simple at first, but get into the movie and watch it again and the little twists and hints will surprise you.
So, a evil Digimon is bred on the internet, and begins a nonstop data meal with the whole world wide web as a buffet. Its up to Tai and Izzy to save the day with their digimon pals Agumon and Tentomon to save the day...digievolution and fighting ensues of course. With the help of the other digidestined the internet evil is overcome just in time to save the world from ultimate disaster - phew - or is it.
A terrible legacy is left for the present digidestined team to clean up,with the help of a new friend! Will they finally defeat the evil virus, and restore digi-peace? Loud, powerful and new characters appear, and the ultimate digibattle ensues. Looks like the digidestined are done for without the power of the golden digieggs!
Kids, and big kids (like me) will love it. The music is addictive. The plot a little thin. Peppered with little spots of satire and dry humour, and lashings of morals, this is a film with wide appeal.
Parents with a anti-voilence or anti 'MON disposition steer clear. This is one for the young, and the young at heart.
