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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
