Review: Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Bonds

According the the wikipedia article Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Bonds
is the fifth ovaerall SNaruto movie and the second Shippuden movie released on August 2, 2008. The English dub version of the movie was released on DVD and Blu-ray on October 25, 2011 in America..

The movie centers around the Sora ninja from the Sky Country who attack Konoha for nearly destroying the Sky Country during the last Shinobi World War. After the Leaf village is attacked Naruto agrees to accompany Sakura, and Hinata who are on a medical mission. They are to travel to Konoha, along with a young apprentice and the child's Sensei.

I have to say that this, except or a few isolated instances, that the movie made sense. Or at least it was the last time the plot was easy to follow.

Motivations are unclear or suspect, Alliances shift regularly, plus responsibility, is often hard to track down, And finally no one is quite or really who they say they are. It is clear that intrigue is the main course today.

Don't get me wrong, I am not dissing the movie. I began watching Naruto several years ago right at episode one to present. I switched to Shippoden because of the 5 year jump ahead and his apprentice with Jiraiya, which was entertaining as were the more advanced episode arcs. So it wasn't difficult to make the choice to get the movie.

And what else can I say in or about this movie. If you like Naruto and are a Shippuden fan than you will enjoy Bonds. If you have never experienced Shippuden, this may be just the thing.

However almost non existent extras, some artwork, and some previews...that's it so I rate the film an 8, but strongly reccoment it for Naruto fans
