"Sailor Moon is a great series, although the English dub does take a little bit away from it. This movie makes up for it. This story takes place after all the American episodes, and includes the Outer Senshi, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. They're reason enough to buy it.As for the plot, it's fun, but not the greatest. A comet is coming towards Earth, carrying an evil Ice Princess who wants to take over Earth. Why? We never find out. But she's a cool villan anyhow. A young astronomer sees her comet... but no one believes him! Except Luna. The movie is basically about Luna's love for the man, Kakeru, and her wish to be human. If you like Luna, this movie is for you.Overall, it's a really good movie. The art and music are of high quality, and the fight scenes are incredible! Plus there's the humor, which is even better in the Japanese version. You'll love it. Trust me."
Great movie for ALL ages.

"I watched Sailor Moon S, the movie and I think it's a beautiful expression of how strong love and friendship can really be. The plot is quite understandable, even to those that are young, and I really don't agree with previous reviews that say that this movie isn't suitable for little kids... that's rediculous... the so called "nudity" is very very obscure and a small child wouldn't even think of it... I sincerely do not know why some people make such a bid deal over nothing. Eitherway, Luna's little romantic escapade is sad at times, but it will warm your hearts... and of course, who could forget Haruka, Michiru and Setsuna, the Outer Soldiers... they're the best and they unintentionally steal the show at every appearance. This is one movie worth buying for all you Otakus out there."
Great Sailor Moon

"Such a cute and touching tale. Luna falls head over heals in love...not for Artemis (sorry man) but for a scientist. Guess she likes the intellectual types...especially when they save her life. Although love is in bloom in december, the scouts have a new problem and enemy on their hands. an evil ice queen is trying to freeze over the entire earth and add it to her collection of frozen planets...immediatly the scouts step up to meet the threat...but the only way to defeat her is my the legendary silver crystal power of love and friendship....will sailor moon use the silver crystal and forfeit her life to save the planet? Not if the scouts can help it!
Okay, thats a brief summary of the basic plot...but there is so muchmore to say about it, but sadly that would take up an entire page...not to mention i dont want to give away what will happen or what comes of Luna's new love. But here are some tasty tid-bits...THIS IS THE ONLY ANIMATED SAILOR MOON WHERE YOU WILL SEE LUNA IN HER HUMAN FORM...thats right...Luna goes homo-sapien and it gets better...not only are the original scouts in this movie...but so are sailor neptune, uranus, and pluto! The outer senshi fight along side our favorite sailors! Not too mention this plot is so enticing it literally sucks you in full force with suspense and action...making you sit on the edge of your seat wondering..."will luna get with her new fling....will artemis be able to steal her back...and will the scouts succeed in their endeavors?"
Here are some feature of the disk you may like to know
-Bi-lingual English and Japanese
Running time is approx. 60 minutes with a 13+ rating, mostly due to violent fighting in the last battel scene, and seeing Luna a bit nude when she turns into a human. One note on the last battel scene, i believe it to be one of the best battle scenes ever made in sailor moon...it gets viloent and downright mean as it should...so of your into good battles....this is one of the best."
Some bad parts, but is it worth buying? Yes, in a nutshell

"I have the dubbed and the sub, and just to make things easy, I'll seperate the bad, the good, and the treats into three parts:The BAD: Uranus's attack phrase was so garbled that there's no possible way you can hear it for the first time. Neptune was OK, but as previous viewers say, it should have been a bit more feminine. And yes, the voice of Pluto in the DiC series should have been in the movie, but out of all the phrases of the three, she's the only one who yells it out clear. Oh well, let's pray the dub of Super S turns out better. And did anyone else get tempted into calling "Sailor Mini Moon"/ Rini "Mini Me" from Austin Powers? And did anyone else want to fast-forward the part when Sailor Moon gets preachy about the significance of life? Another thing to beware is that there's no background music during the battle scenes in order to make the final showdown more dramatic(Like "The Power Of Love" in the R-movie). As a final note, I don't know what's worse: the fact that the Snow Dancers aren't that scary or the fact that they holler and "yi-yi-yi-yi" like Xena on the WB network.The GOOD: We actually get a first peek on the dub's version of Rini's transformation and Sailor Moon's heart scepter attack before the use of the Holy Grail("Moon Spiral Heart Attack") and after("Rainbow Moon Heartache Reform"). At least Pioneer knows what to leave in. Plus, it's nice to see the transformations and the attacks of the Outer Sailor Scouts. As a final touch, you get to see what Luna looks like when she turns into a human being.=)The TREATS: Advantages to buying the movie? It teaches the lesson that if you love someone enough, you know when to let them go. And you'll probably feel sorry or relate for Luna when she realizes she can't love the astronomer because she's a cat and not a human being, and you'll realize how precious love is when you see Artemis support Luna even though she ignores him, and how he becomes crushed when she doesn't realize that he loves he for the way she is. Moral: if not too preachy, it's that love is unconditional, and once we lose it, we realize how much of it we have and need in our life. Great thing to teach for parents in case they have little kids who don't understand this. Oh yeah, and there's one hilarious scene when a Snow Dancer is chasing Serena and Rini, and they do the "Look-Out-Behind-You!" trick and when the dancer turns away to see what they're pointing at, both the girls escape to transform.(I was cracking up seeing on how funny this part was). So, is it worth it to buy the dub? I'd say yes because the bad parts are tolerable, and it will make you want to watch it over again, and this is the only movie that shows the Holy Grail and the Outer Sailor Scouts' transformations. Plus, you'll probably have a few tear-jerkers when you see Luna's predicament; that's good for you emotional people out there."
