“Could this be the final advertisement duel?”

So I’m going to start off this review by saying that I have never ever seen any episode of Yu-Gi-Oh all the way through and after watching this movie, I don’t intend to. The story was just boring and is very uninteresting, the characters were badly written and one-dimensional, the voice acting was bad and the worst thing about the movie is the dialogue. It’s so cheesy that it puts actual cheese to shame. The animation was very good to watch though and some of the designs for the monsters were kind of cool too but that wasn’t enough to save this movie.

The reason why I watched this movie was because I had read a review on it and I vaguely remember watching it so I decided to watch it again and it all came back to me. The movie was just terrible. The animation was done very well but other than that, everything about the movie was just horrible and boring. The dialogue was seriously cheesy and the voice acting was pretty bad too. Fans of the movie will probably love this but other people will not. For the people who are going to watch this movie and don’t know or understand anything about Yu-Gi-Oh, don’t waste your time trying because it’s seriously complicating and it just feels like they were making up the rules for each card as the movie went along.

It feels more like a 90 minute advertisement to sell the trading cards than a movie. If you don’t watch Yu-Gi-Oh or don’t understand it, don’t waste your time with this one. It’s definitely for the fans! Go onto YouTube and watch the Abridged version, it’s a lot more entertaining.
