Pokemon - The Movie 2000 Reviews

June 6, 2008
A much more intense action vehicle for hero Ash Ketchum and his band of pocket monster trainers than its leaden, sometimes claustrophobic predecessor.

January 1, 2000
Has neither drama or comedy ... or a decent story.
January 1, 2000
Slightly better than a poke in the eye.
January 1, 2000
The absence of a compelling villain translates into an absence of excitement.
January 1, 2000
One can almost hear a droning noise.
January 1, 2000
Ugly animation, hackneyed plots, one-dimensional characters, and the Pokemon gibberish that makes the Teletubbies sound as if they were speaking the King's English.
January 1, 2000
Just another plastic accessory in the wildly popular world of Pokemon.
January 1, 2000
A tolerable experience.

Surprisingly entertaining.

Any parent who sits through the cartoon short featuring the nonverbal cuddly Pikachu that begins this movie deserves a purple heart.
January 1, 2000
The filmmakers have tried hard to come up with an original plot, but somehow this film is actually duller than the first Pokemon movie.
January 1, 2000
A din that drowns out all adult howls.

January 1, 2000
Though relatively trim, Pokemon 2000 still feels long.
January 1, 2000
A class-A migraine in soupy, gloopy Technicolor.
January 1, 2000
Actually quite entertaining and sophisticated.
January 1, 2000
Pokemon goes down with a sweetness that charms without talking down to its audience.
January 1, 2000
Japanese anime can rise to a legitimate art form, as with the intricate and haunting post-apocalyptic classic Akira, but the disposable Pokémon 2000 is far lazier stuff.
January 1, 2000
Probably about as good as cut-rate animation that seems to consist of screen savers can be.

There's a lot of motion but scant emotion.
