In their first theatrical feature, Yugi and his friends face their greatest challenge when their arch-rival Seto Kaiba obtains powerful cards from the now retired Maximillion Pegasus. More is at stake this time than a mons... more »ter card championship, or even the rescue of Yugi's amateur-Egyptologist grandfather. Kaiba's challenge coincides with the discovery of the tomb of Anubis by a team of Egyptologists. The jackal-headed god is portrayed as an evil sorcerer whom the Pharaoh defeated 5,000 years ago. The resurrected wizard uses Kaiba as a pawn in his plan to destroy the world, with everything hinging on the card game between Yugi and Kaiba. The threat of world destruction is more than the premise of the series can sustain: Yugi may be a good sport, a loyal friend, and a champion player, but he's an unlikely candidate for saving the world. Neither Kaiba nor Yugi/Pharoah can play a card without screaming about the monster's power, and anyone not familiar with the game will be hopelessly lost.

"I saw the movie when it was at movie theatres, and it rocked out loud. Don't believe my mom when she said "I could bearly keep my eyes open." When I saw it I could bearly even blink, wait I did not even blink. The movie was the best move ever tied with the second Cardcaptor Sakura movie. It rocks like all other anime. I've read the manga for Yu-Gi-Oh! The guy at the bookstore said it was ment for boys but did I listen, you got it no. I am a girl but the anime/manga is ment for boys. Yes the manga is very graphic but I don't care. I mean I think blood and all that stuff is cool. I love it so don't listen to the untrue reviews. So if you are the anime type this movie is right for you!!!!!!!!!"

"Why are there negative reviews about this movie. It was a very fun picture that was filled with action. how can anyone not like this movie, ITS A YU-GI-OH MOVIE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! I heard from another review that a Director's cut version of th movie may be coming. I would pay to see that. The bottom line right now is to watch this movie because it is a good time."
"please, give me more..."

"You know people are getting way too much into the movie when: 1) A girl starts crying at the end of the movie because it was over and she didn't want it to be. 2) The promo cards given away at the movies caused multiple fights over them. (This actually did happen when I saw the movie.)
Anyways, this is definitely the best anime movie that I have ever seen. After viewing the abysmal "Enter the Shadow Realm" series, I was doubting whether the movie would be good... but believe me, it was.
Yugi and his friends face their greatest challenge when their arch-rival Seto Kaiba obtains powerful cards from the now retired Maximillion Pegasus. More is at stake this time than a monster card championship, or even the rescue of Yugi's amateur-Egyptologist grandfather. Kaiba's challenge coincides with the discovery of the tomb of Anubis by a team of Egyptian archaeologists. The jackal-headed god is portrayed as an evil sorcerer whom the Pharaoh Yami defeated 5,000 years ago. The resurrected wizard uses Kaiba as a pawn in his plan to destroy the world, with everything hinging on the card game between Yugi and Kaiba. The plot is just one good thing about the movie, though.
Yugi and Joey really develop their friendship throughout Yugi's duel with Kaiba. Also, the action is just plain awesome.
Overall, any fan of the series will love this movie. A definite infinity/100.
P.S. My favorite quote in the movie comes from Seto Kaiba: "Let me get this straight. You're going to defeat me with a creampuff and an elf?" Kaiba does it again- makes you laugh your ass off.
Totally worth buying.

"First of all, i'd like to verify that i'm actually 15 years old, I just didn't want to join just to write a review. Okay, here we go.
I definitely recommend buying this movie. I'll admit right off that this is not the most interesting plot line. To agree with an earlier review, the movie's like a giant duel. However, what it lacks in action it makes up for in comedy. When I first saw the movie, i went with 3 other girls and we had the theatre to ourselves: and we were laughing the whole time. It's a must see for anyone who likes Yu-Gi-Oh. The duels are kind of yawners, but there are some great lines, especially in the scenes with Kaiba and Pegasus.
If your not all that interested in the laughs, though, maybe you should just consider renting."
Yu-Gi-Oh the Movie ROCKS!
