A Review by
Robert Patterson

Well, it took an hour and forty-five minutes, but Naruto and Hinata finally kissed.  It almost brought me to tears as I was beginning to think it was never going to happen.  The world’s biggest knucklehead finally noticed Hinata and not to mention, saved the world as sort of an anti-climax to the whole story.

To me, this movie was a masterpiece.  The series was starting to drag on and on but this movie starts in the beginning and actually has an end, a happy ending no less.

I know a lot of people were getting rather tired of the series but this movie was well worth watching.  The animation was excellent, the story vibrant and really came together.

It was basically a love story. All of the usual suspects were involved.  Every bit of this film was crafted with loving detail, from the beautiful (if barren) landscapes to the nostalgic instrumentals that helped to narrate the beginnings of the story. Our characters have grown into wonderful, capable adults and the story does a decent job of tying into some of the unresolved plot threads left over from the manga.

I know that the romance subplot between Naruto and Hinata was usually hinted upon frequently.  To be fair, I wouldn’t call myself an avid Naruto enthusiast, I’m more of a casual fan who likes to see loose ends being tied up and having various conflicts resolved. I’m aware the movie has several flaws and not at all perfect, but after an impressive 15 years, they sure tied up one loose end in particular and I loudly applauded the way the movie ended.

While the movie gets off to a great start by introducing the characters having matured physically and mentally (even with some funny moments that were pretty laughable), story-wise it felt lacking since the villain felt more like a generic “filler” arc character that is easily disposable and not as memorable as the true villains like the Akatsuki were.  This is the only minus I noticed.

If you are into ratings, I’ll give this movie a 9.3 out of 10.
