    So the leaf 11 didn’t do crap and were basically used only for comedy for only 2 scenes ,sasuke does nothing, there’s narusaku moments, and sakura plays a important part in this movie? My hype for this movie has gone down tremendously, but I still wanna watch it though the action sounds epic at least.

  • Roy Thuis

    man I really want to download that shit, don’t care of it is crap as long as it has subs

  • sonic4ever567

    Well for me it didn’t change how I felt about this movie at all!! becasue…this is only TheTokyokit’s review…the movie might differentiate for others(I’m a die hard naruto fan so my opinion of the movie would be different from others.^_^) I still can’t wait to see this movie…and it will be soon!!! O/_* 

  • Sandrie Manzano

    Sounds like crap…  The only thing it really has going is action, but action alone don’t make a movie in my opinion.  I had high hopes for this Naruto movie seeing how Kishi is the writer….

    Nope, I was wrong…  Gonna scratched this off another Naruto movie I will not see.

    If Kishimoto wrote this and Tobi doesn’t exist in this world..AND Minato and Kushina are alive….

    Could it be that them being alive somehow changed history to the point where whoever tobi is doesnt exist.

    He didn’t ask.

    Could be, maybe that’s why he calls himself No one

    go back take a cam and record it :) be sneeky

  • RedDragon10

     Yeah, I think people are getting too excited over the film.  Sure Kishi wrote it, but in the end it will just be 2 hours of filler.  Will I watch it when it is released?  Most likely not.  Unless I get like extremely bored or something.  The Naruto films aren’t really anything to bend over to anyway.

    So after all Sakura’s parents are normal ninjas without special abilities like other ninja’s parents.

  • zeroday

    I keep trying to like Sakura, but she keeps doing stupid things to ruin it every time. She obviously doesn’t understand why Sasuke’s seeking revenge if she’s gonna say shit like, “Sasuke would understand why I hate having my parents around.”. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000525982795 Gof Kung

    That’s how Kishimoto wrote it, so hate Kishi instead of poor character like her.

    However, yes, Sakura doesn’t seem to know much about Sasuke. But in the end of the movie, she’s finally learned about Naruto’s feeling, at least. LOL, poor Sakura, her character hasn’t develop much.

  • humzah kiani

    he didnt even mention hinata after the first scenes :(

  • Sandrie Manzano

    What do you know it ended with a Rasengan

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    like it always does =/

  • Sandrie Manzano

    I was expecting more out of Kishi (sigh).

    Hey you poopoohead, they weren’t that bad. Stop being so negative.

  • bryant Avery

    You guys do realize this basically a dream of narutos right? thats why sakura  is relavant because it took place before the land of iron and team seven reunion…when naruto feelings for her disappeared beyond the caring of a teammate

  • http://twitter.com/hhv94 hhv94

    Wow!  Great video!  Even though I didn’t see the movie I don’t mind being spoiled.  Looking forward to seeing this once it comes out.  :)

  • blabla bla

    But he wrote it for a reason. It’s supposed to show us that Sakura doesn’t have a clue. Aren’t the parallels to the “You’re annoying” scene obvious? (Also remember when she said “Naruto doesn’t understand me at all!” When he said the very same lines she was fantasizing about earlier (“Your forehead is so pretty I wanna kiss it”) like he read her mind) Sakura is simply a very flawed character and the movie seems to make her shallowness obvious. Kishi created her character to be shallow, so how is it bad writing if he keeps her characterization consistent?
    Having a flawed character can serve many purposes, here, she is used as a contrast to Naruto. 

  • blabla bla

    Not really surprise, Sakura was always the token normal and Kishi has explicitly stated this… And I think this movie used her token normal role very effectively, like, she can’t appreciate having parents. 

  • blabla bla

    Also, date teasing or no, that movie does make it obvious that they just don’t fit, especially given their different reactions. 
    WTF, “If Sasuke were here, he would understand”…? That again makes it clear Sakura only loves her IDEA of Sasuke, but she has no idea who he is. Genocidal and deranged, that’s what he is.

    Well, Rasengan is one of Naruto’s signature moves.

    Sakura is,as Kishimoto said,the most NORMAL character,shes more like us,ppl outside of manga/anima world,and u hate the reality >/ ,there are no ppl like sasuke,naruto or hinata in real world,i mean with their full personas,get over it,U like the IDEA of ur fav character,stop bitching

  • juan leyva

    shes a girl with pink hair and strength that would put an elephant to shame not to mention she has moodswings like a woman changes shoes. shes anything but normal.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gabriel.oconnor.5 Gabriel O’Connor

    bojana V V V V i beg to differ, while sakura is normal she’s still a ninja. and i do believe theres personas like everyone in this show, i can feel it enough to guarantee it.

  • javier vasquez

    very disapointing for naruhina fans which more then doubles narusaku.

  • javier vasquez

    but in the manga naruto and hinatas future of being togethere/couple looks bright

  • kodomo

    I must watch this movie!!!!!!!! Dang it people , dont leave me in suspense. Im a major naruto fan. Tell me more!!!!! I dont care if it has subs or if it is dubbed, i wan tto watch!!!!!! Sheeeyaaaa!!!!!

  • kodomo

    Kk. I calmed down. Sasuke is better like that. If you actually watch the trailer, he is charming. Neji has to go back to his old self and his destiny lectures, sakura is just a burden and hold back. Hinata has better looks and is not shy anymore, but she to mean. Man ino, change her back somebody. Shes my fav naruto girl character, she is ugly when shy. :P sasuke is just like ….well i cant explain. He looks better in that gangster clothes and he has that smile. Im so attracted XD
