My monster can beat your monster! Or can it? The duels, strategies,
lore and fun of the trading-card game supercharge this first-ever
movie inspired by the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! games, comic books
and TV series. Heroic Yugi squares off against archival Kaliba
in an adventure even more dangerous when the imaginary monsters
in their playing cards become ferociously real... and when
an old evil enters the fray. Who will win this ultimate smackdown?...
The Movie is
the biggest advertisement I've ever seen for a toy. Unlike
other movies in a similar vein
(Pokemon, Transformer and He-Man - Okay, I'm
showing my age there with the last two) there is no attempt
to hide the fact that they are simply promoting the card game.
The whole movie revolves around the game and, just so the
young viewers are under no illusions about what they should
be buying, every now and then one of the cards is thrust at
the camera so that they can see what they should be buying.
fact, not only is this one big ad, it's also one large instructional
video on how to play the game. Imagine
a movie that revolves around two people playing Snap!
and you'll have an idea how bad this movie is.
had a serious disagreement with a 13 year-old fan of the game
and movie who told me that this should easily score 9/10...
but I'm afraid I couldn't justify that under any circumstances.
is a story here, but the fact that it seems to revolve around
who has the best cards is really quite appalling. If you want
to watch a 90 minute advertisement for a card game then you'll
love this. Otherwise stay well clear.
