Pokémon: The First Movie – Mewtwo Strikes Back :- Watch Pokémon: The First Movie – Mewtwo Strikes Back on Youtube on Fire, Scientists genetically create a new Pokémon, Mewtwo, but the results are horrific and disastrous. When a group of scientists are offered funding into genetic research if they agree to try and clone the greatest ever Pokémon, Mew, the end result is success and Mewtwo is born. However Mewtwo is bitter about his purpose in life and kills his masters. In order to become the greatest he throws open a challenge to the world to battle him and his Pokémon. Ash and his friends are one of the few groups of trainers who pass the first test and prepare for battle. However they soon find out about further cloning and Mewtwo’s ultimate plan for the earth. Well, I liked Pokemon the first moment I saw the series… actually, after a few episodes. Anyways, after I saw the video clip “Don’t Say You Love Me” (M2M), I wanted to see the movie. Now, finally, after a few years and a DVD player later, I bought the movie, and I gotta tell ya, I regret it that I didn’t see it in the cinemas… actually, I don’t, because, well, I was “too old” for pokemon. That’s the biggest bullpoo I ever heard. Well, sure, pokemon is mainly for young people, but I did enjoy the movie, for an 18 year old guy. Well, back to the movie. The movie is great. I’ve seen the movie in Dutch first (because I’m used to the Dutch voices, and they sound better to me). The way Mewtwo’s voice was used, it was as if Mewtwo was really in your head. But you’ll need Dolby Surround for that experience. Also, the way the movie reffered back to the series, perfect. I mean, if you haven’t seen the series, then that’s okey, but don’t look weird if you don’t understand certain events and jokes and such. The most unique thing is that this Pokemon movie really shows how much the Pokemon can care for their trainer. ** ENDING HINT ** You can mostly see it near the end of the movie. Pokemon: The First Movie is probably the first movie that succeeded on following up their series successfull. It may not be a great movie, but it sure was fun to look at.
