    I felt Mewtwo got to understand the way of life when Ash took a stand against all the originals fighting their clones.

    Ah, the movie that has one of my favorite scenes of all time, Pikachu getting slapped by its clone *hehhehheh...*. I could understand why Mewtwo hated humans, and I kinda felt sorry for him *sniffle*. But it was a great movie even though it had its flaws (Like when Team Rocket was saying the wrong pokemon names when the screens came up).

    I give Mewtwo Strikes Back a 9..... out of 10.

    I didn't really like this movie. However, there were lots of good music in this movie. My favourite scene in this movie was when Ash got turned to stone because it was sad.

    I give this movie 6 out of 10.

    But it was a great movie even though it had its flaws (Like when Team Rocket was saying the wrong pokemon names when the screens came up).
    They said in the commentary that they were aware of this mistake but left it in on purpose. This was because it was similar to the "Who's That Pokemon" segment in the tv series and you didn't always guess correctly.

    I thought this movie was a wee bit naff. The battle between Mew and Mewtwo was nothing to gawk at. Mew should have been able to talk. This is the worst possible way to (properly) introduce Dragonite. There were a few too many goofs as well.

    BTW did you know this is on the list for the top hundred worst movies ever.

    Also, the Pikachu shorts ALWAYS suck. They are too cute and annoying for anyone to bare.
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

    Read the prologue for the Kanto arc HERE

    The first proper chapter will be posted in October, shortly after the release of XY.

    Blame 4Kids for the messups. They sure as hell weren't in the original.

    And if you look at the list, ALOT of movies that were successful made it on there. It's only being listed as a worst movie mainly cause 4Kids targeted it to children and parents dreaded having to take their kids to see something they didn't understand. Not to mention, the dub was dumbed down ALOT. Basically this is only the worst DUB movie.

    The worst dubbed movie?! Eeek!

    I really loved this movie, and when Ash got turned into stone I cried, but seeing Pikachu try to shock Ash back to life made me laugh (but not the first three times I saw it).

    First time I saw Pikachu zap Ash to wake him up I was crying, then when Ash woke up well that got to me too , I feel bad about laughing at it now though.

    I kind of wish that Ash and co. could have remembered everything about their first movie adventure but...

    I agree. XD If such is true, they wouldn't have made all those other slip ups they've made between Growlithe/Arcanine, Pidgeotto/Pidgeot and more. Not to mention, by listening to the third movie's commentary, they had barely any clue on the name of the place where Charizard went or who some of the Pokémon were. And last I checked, neither Who's That Pokémon? or Dare Da? involved guessing the wrong Pokémon without correcting one's self.

    I really liked this movie, despite it's flaws. (how a trainer could mistake his own pokémon for another is baffling *pidgeotto/pidgeot*) If Mewtwo was looking for the "most powerful clones" wouldn't you think he'd go for the elite four or something? And if Mewtwo had such advanced psychic powers, couldn't he tell that Brock still had Onix and Geodude in their pokéballs?!

    Anyway, enough flaws. I really liked the movie, and the scene where Charizard/Bruteroot/Shellshocker fought their respective clones always makes me smile. That Venusaur clone had some wicked vines..... The Mewtwo/Mew fight was a bit... Boring... The two most powerful pokémon ramming each other? This isn't bumpercars, people!

    Nevertheless, I love this movie!! Go Mewtwo!

    I saw this movie in theaters twice and I cried during the part where Ash was turned to stone.

    i like this movie,though other problems were when the Pidgeot was called a Pidgeotto and, i thought i saw a trainer with a Fearow, then never saw it again! the bit where team rocket were saying the names of the pokemon shows how dumb they are.
    On a plus side, i like this movie because Mewtwo is my favourite legendary and
    My favourite character on SSBM.

    I give a 8/10

    If you think about it, if this movie came out now, it would most likely be rated PG. I think that's so, because of Mewtwo killing everyone and the fact that they rated the Yu-Gi-Oh movie and the PowerPuff Girls (shudder) movie PG.

    I never got the "Who's That Pokemon?" wrong... I think that the trainer with the Pidgeot was just an idiot, therefore further proving Mewtwo's point. Mewtwo put in a much better fighting performance in Mewtwo Returns.

    I don't think much about the mistakes in the movie. I try to focus on the story and the messages the movie is showing. In this movie, there are some pretty neats things, like when the clones and the Pokemon were about to fight, Pikachu shouts out "Pika" which echoes in the background, then changing to the song "Brother, my brother". And when Ash is climbing down the place where Mewtwo blasted him, he runs and stops to see the Pokemon fighting, the camera creatively rises to show this. They also had a good message in the movie, which Mewtwo says near the end, "One's birth is irrelevant, it is the gift of life that determines who you are". I think that is saying something. Well this movie was good to watch and I cried when Pikachu tried to bring Ash back to life (like most people) and I liked the story of it and how it took place. The music was also good. But there were some problems, but I give it 9 out of t10. I think they did a good job. It still entertains me everytime I watch it.

    That was one of my least favorite parts of the dub. Could be because I've heard the original music from that scene.

    Oh well. De gustibus non disputandum est.

    I don't blame you, dude. The whole soundtrack of the dub movie was horrid. :\ None of the music (except the opening) had ANYTHING to do with what was going on. Plus the original music, even if a majority of it was from the TV series, was alot more fitting.

    And thanks for adding another piece of music to my collection. XP

    Yeah, I guess 4Kids were practicing ruining the music for when they got to AG. =P I also hear that when Ash got turned into stone there was a dramatic pause in the original, whereas in the dub, the music just keeps going. Why is 4Kids so determined to destroy the creativity and storytelling aspect of these movies? Then they have to go and add/delete scenes in the fourth and fifth movies and mess them up too. It's so frustrating.

    The music stopped at the end of the clip I provided, as Pikatwo collapsed into Pikachu's arms, still trying to hit it, and just before Mew and Mewtwo started charging their final blasts. It didn't start again until around Dewgong's tears. During the scene where Pikachu was trying to revive Ash, there was no sound at all except for Pikachu's voice and electricity. It is truly unfortunate that the dubbers don't realize the dramatic power of something being absent.

    The first time I saw it, I decided it was a horrrible movie. I have no idea why, so don't ask. However, after seeing it the second time, I fell in love with Mew and Mewtwo, and have not stopped loving them since. They were, without a doubt, the best parts of the whole thing. I started crying when Ash was turned to stone and Pikachu was shocking him and cried with the other Pokémon... '^'
    Now I just wish he had stayed dead. -_-
    I never noticed all those mistakes, though. Yea, there were many mistakes and places were it could've been more dramatic. And now that you mention it, yea, it was a kinda crummy fighting scene...
    Maybe they could have worked a bit harder on it, or have done a better job dubbing it

    When I saw this movie, it was an okay movie with an extremely emotional moment. When, I saw Ash get hit with the two Psybeams, I was shocked. But, that was the only thing that woke me up.

    I absolutely love this movie to death(!), no matter that it has got many flaws. The message is clearly shown all the time and easy to see(come on people, both Meowth, Jessie, James, Ash, Brock and Mewtwo and maybe even some more have all at least one moral speech in the movie). Still, it shocks me that people seem to hate this movie so much. I love the message it brings, it has a sympathetic side to show, the music is great(and you guys saying that the japanse version music was way better, then I've really got to hear it). Maybe the animation and type of anime could have been better, but for being a childrens movie it's very good.

    My favorite scene is(of course) when Ash is turned into stone and every Pokémon starts to cry and mourn to get him back to life. I've heard many complaints about this scene, they say that it's too exaggerated that tears of Pokémon could bring a human back to life. Well, if they would have listened to SOMEONE that explained exactly how this could happen. There's a whole speech about it, and it makes me so mad when I hear people say that.

    Anyway, I give this movie a 9 out of 10. It's a great movie.

    There's a problem with that. There was no such explanation in the Japanese version. So it confused the hell out of everyone and made them wonder how in the world Pokémon tears could bring someone back to life.

    And the music IS better in the original. It had alot of orchestrated music. I feel no sympathy when a song like "Brother My Brother" plays when Pokémon are wearing themselves out in a fight to the death. :\

    Well I've seen it a couple of years ago but yesterday they broadcasted it in the NL, I only saw 3/4 part of it but it's a cool movie. I remember the first time i saw it that I nearly cried when Pikachu wanted to awake Ash and all the other pokemon cried. Yesterday I didn't, but that's most probably because of the fact that I saw it before.
    Overall the movie is good, a good plot of Mewtwo to show that clones are better since he is one himself and that he had to face the pokemon he was made off. An excellent movie !!! Too bad it was so short !!! :S
    8.5/10
