words cannot describe how great this movie is
The Last: Naruto The Movie (2014) The Last: Naruto The Movie was produced in 2014 and was made at a studio called Aniplex. Currently the Naruto series has 8 movies in total. This movie was directed by Tsuneo Kobayashi, who has produced and filmed other popular anime movies and shows such as: The Twelve Kingdoms (2002-), Montana Jones (1994-), and Drunken Angel (1948). Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, wrote the script and screenplay of this movie. Naruto has many popular voice actors such as: Junko Takeuchi (Naruto Uzuamki), Nina Mizuki (Hinata Hyuga), and Jun Fukuyama (Toneri Ôtsutsuki). The Last: Naruto The Movie takes place two years after the Fourth Great Ninja War has ended, but now the ninja world faces a new threat. The moon begins to descend towards Earth threatening to wipe out everything on impact. During the commotion, Hannabi Hyuga, a fellow shinobi and Hinata's kid sister, is kidnapped by the alien, Toneri Ôtsutsuki. It is up to Naruto Uzuamki and 4 of his fellow ninja comrades: Hinata Hyuga, Sai, Sakura Harino and Shikamaru Nara of the Leaf Village to destroy and extinguish the approaching threat. Even though the film is about the 5 Great Ninja Nations coming together to exterminate the incoming threat, the film mainly gives an in depth conclusion on the relationship on the Naruto's love interest, Hinata Hyuga. I have always been a Naruto fan and I have watched it since I was in elementary school. Many fans have been waiting for a movie that concludes what happens to the village and how the characters mature into their adulthood and how they have become stronger as shinobi. It is a beautiful ending, especially given how difficult it was for Naruto growing up as an orphan child. Every bit of this film was crafted with devoting detail, from the beautiful landscapes and sceneries to the nostalgic instrumentals that helped to narrate the story and bring it all together. Our characters have grown into brilliant, capable adults and the story does a fantastic job of tying up some of the unanswered plot threads left over from the manga. Although the fighting scenes were fairly brief, they were filled with much action and were highly anticipated. The fighting scenes, also, came together so gracefully and the background instrumentals made it come together as well, but the fighting scenes weren't as evenly distributed as they could have been. The film is supposed to be about Naruto, so naturally the hero received majority of the focus. The characterization and plot had been modified by the original creator, Masashi Kishimoto, and it beautifully shows how our favorite characters have matured into adults, leaving the audience to come the realization that the characters we have come to know and love, are no longer young and reckless children. If you were ever fond of Naruto at some point in your life or if you want to see a great love story, do yourself a favor and watch this movie so you can see his long deserved, happy ending. It's not only satisfying, but it helps you transition over to the next part of the story. This film did a fantastic job balancing out its formal techniques and thematic content. The film took a little over a year to make due to extensive editing and cinematography, but it was worth every painstaking moment. The counterpoint or background music played a huge role in the making of this movie. If the scene is supposed to be sad, the music would come to ensure that you felt that way. The lighting also played a critical part in the film, as well. The lighting made characters seem bigger than they actually were. It gave the allusion that the character was superior to everyone else. The Last: Naruto The Movie has many genres such as: action, romance, comedy, and adventure. This film does a fantastic job with bringing all of the sub genres together. The graphics came out to a beautiful finish with a great plot.
This film can be described in many words but the word that comes to mind is simply beautiful. It received 7.8 out of 10 on IMDb but I believe it deserves a 10 out of 10. It was a master piece. This film also stood out among the many other Naruto films with the graphics, developing the characters, and the action was all amazing. It shows how they have grown, changed and matured, stirring at the hearts of the many Naruto fans that have watched it from the beginning to the end. Words alone could not describe this film's beauty. I strongly recommend this movie to Naruto fans and even the people who have never seen Naruto before. It is a film you should not miss.
