Movie Reviews

Sakura can't get away from trouble
Carl Cheng | Sunnyvale, CA USA | 02/10/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"even when she is in Hong Kong! The movie takes place sometime near the end of the first series of Cardcaptor Sakura (episode 46). The movie itself does not have a very compelling story but is still good in its own right. There's not a lot of action in this movie.Sakura wins a trip to Hong Kong so she decides to go with Tomoyo, Touya, and Yukito. Because it's break, Li and Meiling are in Hong Kong because that is where they originally live anyway. Sakura and Tomoyo meet up with Li and Meiling by chance and notice that they feel a strong force similar to that of a clow card. With the help of Li's mother, they are able to uncover the source of the power which deals with a person (voiced by Megumi Hayashibara) from Clow Reed's past. Uncover the mystery yourself as you by this DVD.The DVD comes with an amazing reversible cover provided by Pioneer Animation. The front cover is the English version with a close up of Sakura holding her key in nice Chinese clothes in front of the beautiful Hong Kong night depicting its bright lights and beautiful harbor. The reversed cover is what seems to be the original Japanese DVD cover. It shows Sakura in a battle costume made my Tomoyo with cute Kero-chan on her hat. There are pictures of the whole cast of the movie (Tomoyo, Li, Meiling, Touya & Yukito, Li's four sisters, Li's mother) in outines of Sakura/Cherry Blossoms surrounding her. This is a great addition to the DVD packaging and something that is becoming more common among DVD publishers. Pioneer has done so with Gatekeepers and ADV with the Rurouni Kenshin OAVs.This DVD does come with 5.1 and 2.0 Dolby Mix for BOTH English and Japanese voice tracks. This movie is also unedited, which is targeted for the anime fans. Pioneer promises to include as extras the following: Japanese promotional theatrical trailers, commercials, alterate angle footage, and more.Final Note: This movie has amazing detail of the Hong Kong environment. While no Cantonese is ever spoken in the movie, the essense of Hong Kong is brought about in this movie. I praise Hong Kong just as Jackie Chan did in the extras for the Rush Hour 2 DVD."
Taking a step away from the cards for a breather
jermeyw | Zanesville, OH United States | 01/13/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sakura wins a Trip to Hong Kong! She, Tomoyo, Touya, and of course Yukito begin what was suppose to be a normal vacation. No Clow Card catching, just fun time with friends and Yukito-san! She even gets to meet Shaoran's beautiful mother and crazy sisters. Unfortunately, evil forces are drawing near, and a woman from Clow Reed's past brings relaxation to a halt, by invading Sakura's dreams, and ultimately present China. She seeks out the Clow Cards, but when she demands to know why Sakura has them, something more may be the problem. Will she save the day, as well as her Friends? This is an absolute must for any Cardcaptor Sakura fan. It takes place after volume 9 (while Sakura is on Winter Break)This Volume contains BOTH! the Japanese and American uncut Dub.
This also comes out a week after volume 8, so it's ok to watch without worrying whether or not you're missing anything. The movie has nothing to do with the overall plot, but it's great!"
CCS - On the big screen for the first time!
miakarayne | Tucson, AZ United States | 01/16/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is adorable! Not only does it contain excellent animation, superior to the already high quality animation of the tv seris under the same name; but the music and the quality of the feelings evoked while watching this film are enough to make the excellent (aka. extremely low) price of this DVD the best bargain you will ever find.Sakura and Co. (Kero-chan, Tomoyo, Touya, and Yukito) take a trip to Hong Kong! A trip to Syaoran-kun and Meiling's home town?! How fun! Little do they know that the mysterious way that Sakura happened to aquire this trip means that they will all be caught up in one of Sakura's most dangerous trials to date! Told subtly, unfolding one revelation at a time, this movie is a story of love, loneliness, and the life of the sorcerer, Clow Reed.This dvd is sure to be a hit among CCS fans here in the US as it was in Japan! + It is presented in widescreen ratio in the original (uncut) Japanese version w/ english subtitles! (ick, and there is a dub version)... Fans of CCS will love to follow Sakura on her winter break trip to Hong Kong between the 4th and 5th grades. This movie is a nice break from the on-going card collecting of the series. And if you need a nice break, and some pretty Chinese style music to boot, then this is DEFINITELY the movie for you."
The Uncut Version of a Great Movie
Alice Lee | Milwaukee, WI | 01/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the Uncut version of the first Cardcaptor Sakura movie. This movie contains both the English and Japanese tracks (that's right, the dub is included).The story takes place at the end of the first season. Sakura is busy capturing cards as the end of fourth grade approaches. As summer begins, she wins a trip to Hong Kong, China. So she, Tomoyo (with her video camera, or course), Toya and Yukito head off to Hong Kong. Once there she discovers some magical being is causing trouble, and being the one-and-only Cardcaptor she sets out to stop it (with some adventure along the way).I'm sure you'll enjoy this movie if you like either the English version of Cardcaptors or the uncut CCS. It's a Shoujo, or a girl's show, and you'll find a lot of "girly themes" involved, but don't let that stop you.I highly recommend this movie."
