Following their escapades on Drum Island, the Straw Hat Pirates are heading to their next destination: Alabasta. While heading to a nation on the brink of Civil War is hardly anyone's first choice, Luffy and the gang are determined to help Princess Vivi prevent the looming rebellion and expose the nefarious plot that threatens to bring ruin upon the kingdom. Since the citizens' faith in their king is dwindling by the second, exposing the scheme that slanders his name won't be simple, especially when the mastermind behind it all is the country's hero and one of the legendary ‘Shichibukai' - Crocodile. With the Rebel Army ready to make their move, the enemy infiltrating the Royal Guards and a handful of powerful Devil's Fruit users at Crocodile's disposal, it seems that this time the Straw Hat Pirates have bitten off more than they can chew.
Well, I guess this movie wasn't that bad. It had good animation, the pacing was nice and brisk and the girls were given the ecchi treatment (their breasts flying around as if this were an episode of High School DXD or Ikkitousen). However it falls short ultimately with the removal of some important pieces to the story that were beneficial to the series (ex. the removal of Ace). It gave off the feeling that something was missing and fails to deliver. Had this been more faithful to the series it would've been better, but it falls short. You should just watch the whole alabasta arc (bar episodes 98 - 99, 101 - 102) instead if you're trying to keep tabs on the series, watching this in it's place will just leave you confused.
