Here's the movie that murdered the hype for the series, because the studio allocated most of its resources, including the main director, towards making this one, and abandoned the fourth season. As a result, it turned into a badly animated pile of mediocrity that disappointed everybody and made many to lose interest and jump onto the next bandwagon that was Demon Slayer. Because for some reason disposable filler movies with no impact on the show, deserve far better treatment than the canon material, which is what people actually care about. Oh well...
So the plot is very basic crap. The students are sent to a remote island... again. It's a rehash of the premise of the first movie. And this time, with no supervision by teachers, since that is how high schools work in this dumb universe. You leave dozens of immature, hormone crazy superhumans, completely unchecked for weeks and assume nothing will go wrong.
Then bad guys conveniently appear when the students are still on the island. Can you imagine what would happen if they had waited for the heroes to leave before doing their thing? And can you imagine their plan being to politely ask for where the boy they were looking for is and then politely ask the boy to heal their leader? They would have achieved their mission without having to throw a single punch.
But that way we wouldn't have a dumb actionfest, so yeah, let's make everything stupid and shallow. Bad guys attack, good guys counterattack, stuff blow up, and nothing matters because everybody besides Deku and Bakugo are background decorations and the fights have no impact on the plot. Then we get to the meat of the movie, which is the two main characters going up against the big boss of the movie. They can't beat him with the powers they have, so the writer decides to do some convoluted nonsense and gives Bakugo a power up, which he conveniently forgets about after the battle, so there won't be any permanent repercussions in the main storyline. Gotta love filler movies.
Anyways, just like the first film you are supposed to watch it just for the dumb battles, which unlike in the main series they don't end with a couple of punches. Unfortunately, if you follow the series and know that they threw the series under the bus for animating a pretty looking filler, then you won't even like it as much as the first one.
