Naruto Shippuuden 4: The Lost Tower (2010)

I still watch Naruto’s movies even though I stopped watching the anime because the movies offer something different. I read its manga all the time, at least it is one of two manga series that I read nowadays (the other being One Piece).

Even though this movie still has the same Naruto mumbo jumbo, seeing the 4th Hokage in his heyday was a welcome sight for me … even though the techniques he showed were lame. I thought the creators should have given more focus to the 4th Hokage even if it is Naruto’s movie. After all, people see the same techniques over and over as well as the same sentimental boring outlook that Naruto has.

The movie does have a few noticeable glitches. A big city called Rouran and the princess gets to interact with only a few people??? Wow … I mean, during the last part where he guides her people to safety … are those the only people that Rouran’s population consists of?

Anyway, the movie also features young versions of characters that we see in the Shippuuden world today. Minato Namikaze, Shibi Aburame, Chōza Akimichi, a young Shizune, Maito Gai, Asuma Sarutobi, Kakashi Hatake and so many more.

Seeing them made the movie un-boring for me. Plot wise and story wise … predictable and the same old Naruto. Not really worth watching it in the theater. Good thing there is such a thing as a download.
