If you love Digimon, here's more. No surprises.

Not that I'm encouraging you to see the movie, you understand -- especially not when you could, for example, alternatively spend the evening tweezing your eyebrows with chopsticks.

Animation work is generally far below the standard tolerable for the bigscreen.

This picture is such a hyperactive hodgepodge ... mostly because it's cobbled together from three short Japanese movies.

I'm not nuts about shooting hyperactive boys up with Ritalin, but Digimon: The Movie could use about 2,000 cc's of the stuff, injected straight into the projector.

The film is strictly for the kiddies, there's not that many grownups who would stand for monsters going at each other yelling Fart POWER!!!!! or whatever it is they're saying.

What is particularly unappealing and troublesome about the feature is that it is a video game barely disguised as a movie.

A frenzied, cacophonic cartoon feature (actually two featurettes shakily stitched together).
Bob Campbell

The movie doesn't even try for coherence. Each of its three distinct episodes is barely comprehensible in itself.

Still just another excuse to sell trading cards and video games to your unsuspecting offspring.

Art may be too much, but shouldn't filmmakers deliver something more than rehashed Saturday morning piffle on the silver screen?

[Parents] may be peering at their watches and sympathizing with the Digimon who wails, 'What do we have to do to stop this fighting?'

After about an hour, the picture simply runs out of plot. When another adventure is introduced, you're all but invited to check your watch.

The film's animation is second rate with dull colors and fuzzy drawing. Neither this, nor the lackluster music, can compensate for the story's confusion.

Nothing but an extensive knowledge of the DigiMythos will make the story of this animated feature the slightest bit comprehensible.

Plots are difficult to follow and use the words 'Digi' and 'Mon' to an obnoxious degree.

The film has an unrelenting staccato quality. Some would say a jackhammer quality.

The animation itself isn't anything special -- not that the target audience cares much about that. But the message is sweet and empowering.

Overall, it's a pleasantly bearable experience.

This full-length animated film actually isn't bad.
