If there is any taste left in the world, the buck may very well stop here.

Parents, if you don't want to compete with popular culture to raise your child ... this is where you draw the line in the sand.

Digimon isn't deserving of much, as it's still not a very good movie. But at least it's not as bad as Pokemon.

With its migraine-inducing laser showdowns and puerile gags ... Digimon almost makes you nostalgic for the relative sophistication of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It's crudely animated and utterly uninteresting.

The fight scenes ... are thrilling, the friendships among the Digidestined children are way cool, and the protective gestures of the older kids toward the younger ones in the movie are probably a good example for all.

I'm sorry, but it's highly unlikely that few will argue with the point that more than one such 'mon' game, TV show or movie is one too many.

As noisy, chaotic, cheesy and crassly commercial a product as has ever been put on the big screen.

Overly violent swill.

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

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

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

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.

Overall, it's a pleasantly bearable experience.

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

I found the movie exciting enough to keep me interested.
January 1, 2000
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.
