Movie Info

Set in a mysterious city on water, a baffling maze of canals and alleyways provides the glamorous setting for the continuing adventures of Ash and his Pokémon who travel to the Water Capital of the world, Alto Mare, where they meet two new Pokemons, a brother and sister pair of birds named Latias and Latios. The birds protect a treasure called the Droplet of the Heart, which is the target of a pair of thieves, Zanna and Rion. When the mysterious city accidentally floods, the treasure becomes endangered--can Ash save the day?

[A] sunny, gentle action yarn with numbingly repetitive chase scenes and bouncy interludes of playtime.

Pokémon Heroes features fewer gratuitous pokéfights than its precursors, and also lacks a dutifully over-repeated moral, but it doesn't replace these Pokémon staples with anything substantive.

Below-average for series and too violent for younger kids.

We've seen it all before, and too many times.

Kids will revolt, parents will snooze, and I will be downright giddy if I never encounter another Pokémon movie as long as I live.

If you still have Pokémon fans at your house, I suppose there's no harm in taking them to see this movie; but with Pixar's Finding Nemo set to open in a couple of weeks, surely you can find something better to do this weekend.

Audience Reviews for Pokémon Heroes

Pokemon Heroes is among the most boring of the Pokemon films and has the most lukerative plot about two twin dragons, while ash's mission is to get to a pokemon race to see them. Along the way, there are conflicts and battles. However, I find most of this film uninteresting and strays very far away from the original origins. Pokemon Heroes shouldn't have been made!
