BORUTO: NARUTO THE MOVIE (2015) Review
Directed by Hiroyuki Yamashita
Simple but entertaining. Boruto: Naruto The Movie doesn’t try hard like the recent Naruto Movies that came to Philippine cinemas. It’s not a film adaptation just for the fans, aside from impressive action sequences, the film also invests in its story for tackling about family and choices. The film also tries to be fresh as it stands on its own without having the need to see the previous ones or have it end in a cliffhanger for a possible sequel.
Without expecting anything, especially for someone who isn’t a fan of the animated series, Boruto is satisfying. It feels like a ‘back-to-basics’ film that is simple but has a lot to say. It might not be immensely compelling but being entertained in something that only fans might appreciate means the film has done what it has meant to do.
Our rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Boruto: Naruto The Movie is now showing exclusively at SM Cinemas. Rated PG by the MTRCB.
