Audience Reviews for Pokémon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life

  • Aug 12, 2011
    Legends arise in Kunihiko Yuyama's <i>Pokemon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life</i>.<p>Set in the Pokemon universe, this film's 90 minute plot is quite loaded. There are numerous explanations with regards to the legendary Pokemon subplots and having a number of them duke it out for a good portion of the picture is a crowd-pleaser. Despite all that, one of the more intriguing pieces to the story, along with the Pichu segments, is the involvement of time travel. While there are some parts of the outcome that are questionable, they are easily forgivable. Hey, this is Pokemon.</p><p>The combination of animation and CGI isn't necessarily the cream of the crop; however, using them both together hardly hurts this film in anyway.</p><p>Aside from the voice of Arceus, which sounds a little weak and un-masculine, the rest of the cast is as expected. The human characters have matching voices, while the Pokemon sounds are just as adorable as they are.</p><p>Like many other things, Pokemon is not for everyone. As for <i>Pokemon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life</i>, it is a recommendable Pokemon adventure.</p>

    Another excellent adventure! "Pokemon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life" can be considered a build up of the previous two films. This being "Giratina and the Sky Warrior" and "The Rise of Darkrai." The previous conflicts in the other two films become readily apparent of why they happened as well as the lead up to this movie's story. The dimensions of Dialga (who controls time,) Palkia (who controls space,) and Giratina(who lives in the dimension known as the reverse world) were not suppose to collide (this leads to the conflicts of Dialga and Palkia in "The Rise of Darkrai" and Giratina and Dialga(although minor) in "Giratina and the Sky Warrior.") It was later found that the cause of all this was because of Arceus' awakening from his slumber to rejuvenate his strength. This caused the dimensions of Dialga and Palkia to collide. At the same time, while Dialga and Palkia were fighting, the reverse world was affected (as anything that happens in the Pokemon world has an effect on the reverse world.) Due to the "betrayal" in the past, Arceus was set to destroy humans for that" betrayal" as a form of justice. We follow Ash and his pals as they get sent to the past to correct a mistake that would eventually fix the present. The music was awesome, battles were epic, voices are..better, animation wasn't bad at all, and they released enough events for the movie to advertise it pretty well...I guess i know why they had over 2 million tickets pre-ordered there were only a couple of cons in this movie, but they really don't take out of the quality of the movie..Arceus sounds like a gay Asian guy, some of the CGI-hand-drawn combinations seemed a little awkward...but like i said, you don't really notice unless you look up close i HIGHLY recommend this movie for any pokémon fan, or anyone new to the series As Ash and friends arrive in Michina Town, the legendary Alpha Pokemon Arceus, stirred by the battle between Dialga and Palkia in Alamos Town, awakens to exact judgment on humanity for a betrayal it suffered in ancient times.
