Boruto's kind of annoying isn't he? Kind of spoiled. At least in the beginning... I guess he grows on you.
I don't know if I was ever equally annoyed with his dad though, even in the beginning of the original. I am a bit annoyed at how grown-up he seems now! Even if the battle sequences are all amazing, and I do wonder who raised the third guy in the group... I thought I'd relate more to the older him since I don't relate as much to his son, but as it is I don't really relate to either. Middle age? Wonder who's really the intended audience here...
The movie feels a bit short, but the action sequences are great, and the morals are the spotlight. Don't cheat. Do it the hard way, and you'll really feel like you accomplished whatever it is you were going for!
It's also a story of family, of making time for your kids, and of course also that of a supervillain about to try what Kaguya tried to do at the end of the original anime and take over the world, only this time it doesn't take a few hundred episodes, and their plans get foiled pretty quick.
Overall it feels a bit superficial and predictable at times, and nobody dies, so in that regard it seems like less an integral part of the plot - plus when did Hinata become a weak housewife?! I'm not really seeing the lure to get into this anime after this, it's all too different from the the way I remember it and still (a few hundred episodes maybe does that to do) wish it was...
But on the other hand I'm happy when it's over.
I mean I feel it ended the right way. With closure.
Maybe it's not such a bad movie after all.
rated 3.5/5: not bad at all
