    This third Pokemon movie is another favorite of mine. It was more original and adventurous than the previous two, and had more emotional scenes along with some really good battles. I particularly enjoyed Kasumi and Mii's underwater battle. It was also easy to sympathize with Mii, even though I still wanted her to be stopped. Entei also rocked even though he wasn't a real one, just a fake made by the Unknown.

    Ash's mom being involved here was interesting and I felt so sad for Molly when her dad went missing. The mansion looked amazing with the crystals and seeing Misty and Brock battle Molly was great. Charizard vs Entei was the highlight for me.

    Too bad Hanako mainly served as a damsel in distress. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad she was here, it's just that she felt redundant in the grand scheme of things.

    Yeah, this movie made me cry. It is such a good movie. I think that Entei was real, in a sense. All the dreams and memories of her father came back to life. It showed that even though he was gone, the memories and love never left her. At the end, when Entei was going to help her out of there, it really hit home. Such a beautiful movie.

    At the end, when Entei was shouting to believe in him, I think it had much more of a meaning that what was just being said. It may have not technically been her father, but I believe it was voiced by the same person for a reason. It was the manifestation of the love her father and her shared.

    Entei saying "Just keep me close in your dreams" followed by Molly saying "Papa" shows all of that. Her father was able to reach her because of his love, even if he passed on. Who knows? Maybe Entei was actually her father, and the Unknown reincarnated him... Also, if Enti wasn't the reincarnation of her father, why was it able to stand up to the unknown so easily, if the Unknown were the ones that created it? They started to control everything else in the world, so it doesn't make sense that they couldn't control him too. Either way, the meaning of the whole movie truly touches my heart. That is why this movie is so amazing. Sorry for getting so sappy, everyone.

    Entei being Molly's puppet made me think less of him because he existed only to fulfill her wishes. I wish this Entei had been a real one, not some Unown spawn.

    Ash's mom was probably given that role simply to motivate Ash to enter the mansion to rescue her, so I understand why she was mostly treated as a hostage. From my perspective tho, it was better than nothing. ^^;

    Eh, Ash's mom did seem kind of pointless, though she was a good substitute for Molly's mom. I don't get who that lady at the end was, though: I thought Molly's mom had died?

    From what I've read, Molly's mother had been ill at a hospital the whole time. So the woman who showed up in the film's ending credits with her father was actually Molly's real mother who had returned home finally hee hee.

    Oh lol. I don't think that was explained when I watched this movie, so I was wondering who she was and why she was only shown in the credits.

    Yea I think the dubbed version skipped on telling us what happened to Molly's mother for some reason, tho the Japanese version apparently mentioned what had happened to her. I do wish the dub had given us that same bit of information. :[

    The only thing that I disliked more than this movie's rushed ending, was Ash's Charizard's sudden comeback, which made almost no sense and seemed like fan service...

    The English dubbed version of the movie claimed that Mrs. Hale had disappeared. I believe the Japanese version stated that she left her husband because he was a workaholic, or something along those lines. (It's been awhile since I've seen the movie, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.)

    I thought him showing up in Greenfield was great cuz he helped Ash during his battle with Entei. I liked how we saw Charizard watching the news broadcast as well since it explained how Charizard knew where to find Ash. And Liza's cameo was cool.

    That battle was one of the coolest scenes in the entire movie. Charizard's appearance might have been a bit of fanservice, but it was awesome fanservice! I actually thought Charizard's appearance was set up decently well enough. It was also nice that it went out of its way to find and help its Trainer.

    Overall, I really liked Spell of the Unown. Unlike in many of the movies, where Ash and his friends happen to be in the right place at the right time and get involved in the plot because Ash apparently has Chronic Hero Syndrome, this time, Ash had a more personal reason for getting involved--his mother was kidnapped. Additionally, the Hales weren't just complete strangers; Prof. Hale was Delia Ketchum's old friend and Professor Oak's former student. So, Professor Oak and Delia actually had a reason to be in Greenfield.

    I also liked how Molly, despite being the technical villain of the movie, was a very sympathetic character. My heart just reached out to her. She was hardly villainous at all; she only did what she did because of her psychological trauma at losing her father, and she was too young to really understand the consequences of her actions.

    In retrospect though, this movie's Entei being an imaginary one seemed more logical than a real Entei getting involved in the plot. I just can't imagine how the movie's production and writing staff would've justified a random Entei becoming Mii's guardian.
