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

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.
January 1, 2000
The animation itself isn't anything special -- not that the target audience cares much about that. But the message is sweet and empowering.

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

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.
January 1, 2000
As noisy, chaotic, cheesy and crassly commercial a product as has ever been put on the big screen.

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.

Can be surprisingly smart and lively in its early going, thanks to some cheeky, well-written humor, a genuine sense of excitement and topical ties to the Internet.
January 1, 2000
What is particularly unappealing and troublesome about the feature is that it is a video game barely disguised as a movie.
January 1, 2000
Still just another excuse to sell trading cards and video games to your unsuspecting offspring.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
Overall, it's a pleasantly bearable experience.
January 1, 2000
With its migraine-inducing laser showdowns and puerile gags ... Digimon almost makes you nostalgic for the relative sophistication of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Animation work is generally far below the standard tolerable for the bigscreen.
January 1, 2000
A frenzied, cacophonic cartoon feature (actually two featurettes shakily stitched together).
