Having recovered a treasure chest from a sinking ship, the Straw Hat Pirates can’t wait to see what riches await them inside. So imagine their surprise when they find they've gotten an old lady instead! Anxious to get back home (and avoid Nami’s wrath for having thrown out the treasure previously in the chest), the old lady offers a great treasure reward if the crew will return her to her home on Mecha Island. Her legend of the Golden Crown sounds too good to be true… but Luffy smells adventure, so what's the crew to do? In an island full of amazing inventions, the crew will test their riddle-solving skills – and Luffy's dumb luck – to solve the mystery of Mecha Island and its treasure.

This is the seventh One Piece movie, theoretically taking place around the Water 7 arc. It is the first movie that is not dedicated to a crew member, despite the fact it is heavy on machinery and could have easily been about Franky. He was still not officially part of the crew at the time and the unbearably slow anime wasn’t helping. As a result the movie is about nothing in specific. Without a character to focus on it has no real theme or message. And no, being a filler story is not an excuse.The plot is about a treasure they are looking for, and there’s this song that hints its place, and there’s also this king with weird contraptions and… that’s all of it. How does any of that connect to the show or the crew or the themes? I mean, sure, it’s the first film featuring Luffy’s new Gear powers, but that is just what he can do at that moment in the story. It doesn’t mean anything for the character, the same way Super Saiyan 3 didn’t mean anything for Goku in any movie. You just tolerate 70 minutes of boredom until the protagonist gains a new super ability to beat the big boss. It’s not like there was no other way to beat him with all the stuff he has managed to break or deflect in all the previous episodes and movies. Did he really need superhuman strength to beat a mook robot? Thus not even this fan service moment is important.The only other point of notice is Nami’s boobs. They kept getting bigger with each passing season and now they bounce so much they have a life of their own. That is how you are supposed to be distracted from the boring plot. Distasteful! A completely boring movie I do not recommend to anyone.
