The best yet!,
This review is from: Pokemon 4Ever [DVD] (DVD)
It's a shame when big production companies release top films like this on DVD and VHS before letting it mature at the cinema. Usually, films in this situation simply slip by unnoticed. This shouldn't!
This film focuses on Celibi, who is a rare Pokemon to say the least. (The title is actually Celibi's Timeless Encounter.) It travels back in time and somehow brings along a stowaway, in the form of Jesse and James' offspring! This causes loads of confusion, and a great adventure begins.
As far as the animation goes, it's actually taken a step up from the previous film. This is another reason why I can't understand how Warner Bros. could have seen sense in going straight to DVD and VHS. The sound is thumping Dolby Digital 5.1, and it really suits the film to a tee.
The bonus features that have been confirmed are pretty cool too! Trailers, quizes, animation outtakes, and a deleted scene that was translated from the original Japanese version, but then cut for fears that it was 'unsuitable'. That means violence, then. Also, because Warner Bros. couldn't decide what to do with Pokemon 4, (they originally weren't going to fund it and make up new lines in the following series' to explain the random new Pokemon and events,) we're now two whole films behind the Japanese. They're enjoying Pokemon 6! Interestingly though, we get a teaser of the fifth film in the saga. And it's been translated into English! Looks like the studio have been working overtime while working on two films! So Pokemon 5 can't be far off... (It'll take at least a year for the sixth movie to begin translation though...)
Anyway, overall this DVD is well worth a purchase if you liked the previous trilogy of films. It's pretty darn cool!
