[Review] Boruto -Naruto the Movie-


First thing first, I don’t want to see any “ yeah bro, I’ve watched the pirated one ” type of comments on this article because that’s just, unbelievably rude . Pretty please ? For fans of the Naruto series throughout Indonesia, of course, they have been waiting for the appearance of the film Boruto -Naruto the Movie- which will be shown on November 18th in Indonesian cinemas.

On Thursday, October 12, JOI together with media partners and giveaway winners had the opportunity to watch the premiere of the film Boruto -Naruto the Movie- thanks to friends from Jive Entertainment . Of course, this film that is predicted to be Masashi Kishimoto’s best work should not disappoint.

When Masashi Kishimoto was asked if he wanted to make a sequel to the Naruto series , Kishimoto replied that he was tired. But he also stated that Boruto ‘s story itself was ‘perfect’ and could not be changed anymore. But can this story about the children of Naruto Uzumaki and Hinata Hyuuga satisfy us? Let’s discuss in more detail about the film below.

Balas dendam The Last -Naruto the Movie-
Still remember the previous film, The Last -Naruto the Movie- ? One of the factors that disappointed me with the film was the lack of heart-rending fighting scenes. Serious. The previous film focused more on Naruto and Hinata’s love sceneswho destroy dreams NaruSaku/NaruSasu supporters.

But this Boruto movie will open with fast action scenes that will immediately grab your attention. Like revenge from the previous film, this film is full of action scenes from ninja fights. Although of course there are moments of its own drama that will color Naruto’s household life, but the battle scenes are far more adrenaline pumping than the previous film.

Fanboy/girling NaruSasu
Until the end of the Naruto manga , I really wanted to see these two friends interact like ‘normal’ friends. I also refrained from reading Naruto Gaiden before I finished watching this film. So I don’t know if Naruto and Sasuke can finally spend time like friends without a sword stuck in each other’s neck.

It’s unbelievably refreshing to see both of them speaking like a true brother would, that’s just another dream come true, for me at least . In addition, the two also understand each other, this is shown when Sasuke trains Boruto and tells his father’s past. Although the two of them rarely see each other due to their busy schedules, their relationship is much better than when they were kids.

Naruto’s bond with Sasuke also looks stronger when they fight together. Cooperation between the two flows like water, especially in the last fight, but I don’t want to divulge the story any further.

Boruto’s new story
But let’s not continue to talk about relationshipsforbidden between Naruto and Sasuke alone, don’t forget that this film is a film that will tell the story of Boruto. For those of you who have read the Naruto Gaiden manga , you may already know Boruto’s nature and his treatment of his father, but for those who intend to wait for this film to come outlike mecertainly a new experience.

Besides Boruto, of course Sarada, Mitsuki, and other friends also have a big enough role in this film. You can also see the future of old characters like Kakashi, Gaara, Shikamaru and many more.Neji is still dead though. Don’t forget to stay in the chair until the end of the ending credits to see one of the biggest mysteries of this film .

(Probably) It could be better
But of course, widescreen films have their own weaknesses, such as the limited time they have. I think if the duration of the film is extended a little more this film will be much better. Some parts like the Chuunin exams feel too short when compared to the length of the Chuunin exams in the original series.

Besides that, Nugrahadi also advised, this film is actually cool but pushy, but cool, just keep pushing. Maybe it’s true, for some viewers who are mature enough to be dissatisfied with some parts of this story. In fact, we hope that this film will tell more about the relationship between Boruto and Naruto rather than wasting time fighting his enemy who came not picked up and returned home not delivered.

But I’m sure if you are a Naruto fan, you will be satisfied watching this film. Some successful scenes make me cry, call me soft , crybaby, or whatever you like , it’s that good . I do have a soft spot when watching something related to father-daughter stories and I think Masashi Kishimoto managed to make the story really hit.

Verdict: Best Naruto Movie/Naruto Movie
Apart from the story that might be improved again, but we have to understand that Naruto’s main target is a young reader. Those of us who are in a hurry for this earthy smell, it seems that our tastes have shifted a little, for example, we used to like vanilla, maybe now we like NTR .
