The standard in which all Naruto films followed. A very important icon becomes the target of no good evil doers,blah blah, they don't believe in themselves,blah blah,Naruto says "I HAD A ROUGH PAST TOO! YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH! BELIEVE IT!", BOOM! DIFFERENT RASENGAN! End of film. Not to say that THIS is the bad flick though. In fact, it is very enjoyable. Animation is great and the music fits the mood. Just don't expect anything of more quality till you reach the 3rd Shippuden movie.
