News & Interviews for Pokémon 4Ever
Critic Reviews for Pokémon 4Ever
A rote exercise in both animation and storytelling.
An improvement on the feeble examples of big-screen Poke-mania that have preceded it.
The animation and game phenomenon that peaked about three years ago is actually dying a slow death, if the poor quality of Pokemon 4 Ever is any indication.
4Ever has the same sledgehammer appeal as Pokemon videos, but it breathes more on the big screen and induces headaches more slowly.
Audience Reviews for Pokémon 4Ever
Pokemon 4ever is probably the safest in the pokemon series, as this films does not serve any new interest to the pokemon films, but does not fail to impress either. As Ash and his pals are on the hunt on a mysterious island for a legendary pokemon, the find it to have mystical powers unlike any other pokemon on earth. This film is the most interesting among the series, but the fact that it steals from other plots points of the past films really doesn't show anything special!
The film begins with a fantastic chase through the forest. The whole forest is beautifully created, and the anime style fits in nicely with the stylized CGI. The plot is fairly simple. A boy saves a time traveling Pokemon and is brought forward 40 years where he meets Ash and co. They must battle a Pokemon hunter that wishes to enslave the super awesome Pokemon. It's a fun movie that actually adds to the relationships of those in the Pokemon universe. Once again it has an obvious eco message, but you also get to see a huge CGI woodland monster type thing, so I ain't complaining. Again, this is just for Poke fans, but may be entertaining enough for those outside their comfort zone.
