RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
This is some major BS butt pulling from Kishi.

I must have missed the part in the manga where Naruto transformed into RTN Sasuke. This movies character assassination just keeps getting worse as each day passes.

And I'm rusty on my Japanese and only around a second grader's level, but Naruto just invites Hinata to come eat cup ramen with them. And like Red and Blue said, they could just be fangirls that Naruto has no interest in. You do remember that he saved village AND save the world, right? End all the conflicts in the world, and I bet the opposite gender will be flocking over to you too and always bothering you.
Do we even know who this girl is, for all we know, Naruto could have saved her from something, leading to the everloved "awkward misunderstanding".
Obviously they're fangirls. Naruto is a world renowned hero. A celebrity.
The movie is about how he hooks up with his wife. They're not gonna have him being a playboy in that context.
Hooray another review that says it's all about romance
Spoiler:- This is character assassination at it's finest.:
I must have missed the part where Naruto became a horrendous Shouju. The highlighted areas are complete and utter BS. I was excited for this movies action sequences but now... it's become basically skippable. If I wanted to watch a romance movie I would, but I do not expect this from a shounen manga.

That's cool, I really like naruhina, so I dont mind plenty of scenes of them "romancing". I guess it's a shame they couldnt do it in a movie woh isnt the last one, but w/e.
I'm not really interested in romance in this series, so knowing how the movie turns out is kinda sad. For the "last Naruto movie," the plot sounds really bad in my opinion.
This movie just sounds lackluster if you aren't into NaruHina. No Hanabi action? Drat! And Sakura continues to be dragged through the mud. Not sure if I want to see it or not.

I was pretty sure I'd be passing on it for some time, though.
Naruto's characterization hasn't been assasinated. If something, it had evolved, but he needs to make the final step in the maturity line. I recommend to watch the movie when it's released in about 6 months in Blu Ray first, and evaluate the story later. Kishimoto had supervised, corrected and red pencilled almost all the screenwriting and storyboards in order to make the movie canon to the manga's events (and that says much. It seems the constant supervision pissed off Pierrot staff in some aspects according to the interviews).
Sakura had the most screentime in the series, yeah, but her romantic development with Naruto is totally zero. Everyone of their interactions revolvea around Sasuke-kun, pls bring back Saucekay-koon for me, anta boke. Hontou (really), Naruto's crush on Sakura was used mainly for jokes or comical relief. Especially in Shippuden when Sakura's actions were more like an oneee-san trying to stop her lil bro from something suicidal. Sai's quote about her feelings were a red herring. Heck, even Sakura realized Hinata's feelings for Naruto after the Konoha destruction. And every NS hopes basically sunk when Naruto said he hates liars like her or something similar.
Even in part 1 NS as a potential endgame was dead since the moment Sakura hugged Sasuke in the hospital and Naruto bittersweetly decided to accept the truth (IIRC it was after Gaara's attack to Konoha).
As for NH, it seems it had zero development because of Hina's screentime, but the ship had huge development. At least, Naruto's growth owes mostly to that moments (the vow after Hina vs Neji, Hinata's proud failure speech, the confession, Naruto talking about her eyes and Neji's death), seems coincidencial?? Nope, Kishi planned NH to be the endgame since the finale of Part 1.
And remember Kishitroll said he couldn't make a romance story of his characters because not only of him being bad at writing shoujo stories and being embarassed/sad about expressing love and also because of the dreadful weekly deadlines in the Shounen Jump Magazine. And given the manga deadline was in chapter 700... well, the movie was his only way to explain the endgames seen at the end. Remember that the way Naruto was going to end was planned about the end of Part 1, The Last Naruto was planned 2 years ago (when it was announced as "Naruto The Movie 10"!! ...when RTN was bombing hard in Japan. So, for me, the movie doesn't seem rushed at all.
So, I think that neg reviews and thoughts about The Last are mainly from western NS shippers. In Japan "The Last" movie had almost totally positive reviews and reports of people crying in the avant-premiere/pre-screening. And the soundtracks were plainly sold out at the 1st day.
Finally, Naruto's message was all about everlasting friendships and the power to forgive. Not about trying to win the girl of your dreams (and given Naruto was published into the fujoshi era of Shounen Jump [AKA, Bishounen Jump Era, 1999-2013], the romantic subplots were hindered at its most in the running time of the nekketsu-genre manga. Similar to other series published in that magazine. However, Shogakukan-Shueisha changed in August 2013 their politics and they are erradicating the "attactive to fujoshi" mangas from their most sold weekly magazine).
I thought I was done with this thread... I really thought I was, maybe I just can't resist the scorn that I get lol.
IDK, I just can't believe anyone is defending this movie. To think I actually had faith in people's ability to read or understand how not to destroy a character. This movie is literally destroying everything Naruto was. His feelings were never shallow, he was never a womanizer, he never worried about his own feelings above other peoples safety. This movie isn't even a clear picture of why he falls for Hinata... it just happens because the plot says it does. This same plot also damaged the very confounds of the manga it's suppose to represent. How is any of that a good thing?

Womanizer??? Naruto if something is only being gentle with his newmade fans, maybe slightly exasperated of his new lifestyle because of him being the Saviour of Konoha. Naruto's feelings to Sakura were used for comical gags. Remember he said "if she is happy, then i'll be happy for her" regarding Sakura being happy to be in love with Saucekay.
