whoa, this was easily the best one piece movie. It didn't feel at all crammed in the way tv show-movies usually do, I think the longer running time really helped in terms of pacing. The story had all of the great one piece elements we all love, and the music was effing sensational.
A few criticisms though:
=Neither Nami nor Robin got in any form of decent fighting, and both were stuck in damsel in distress mode, this tends to irritate me especially since Robin is supposed to be in the stronger part of the crew.
=Short fights, I know time is an issue in movies, but they could have cut back on other things .
=Stupid villains, this is probably my pet hate in one piece, villains that switch from being morons to being evil geniuses. I don't mind in the case of weaker villains like Buggy and so forth, but when the big bad of the movie keeps switching, I think it takes away from his evil. Also I found Dr indigos footsteps annoying, and I'm unsure of the purpose? Maybe it's the type of thing 10 year old boys find funny or something
On a side note - does anyone know if there is or will be an OST available for this movie?
I want the music so much!
