With the help of the power of the Pharaoh, Yugi Moto has earned the reputation of being the “King of Games.” But Seto Kaiba finally has a plan to bring down his rival, and with his new and powerful cards, he might finally have a chance of succeeding. Meanwhile, a new artifact known as the Pyramid of Light has captured the attention of Yugi and the gang, as it bears a striking resemblance to the Millennium Puzzle. Soon, Seto and Yugi will face each other in an epic battle – but something mysterious is at work. Will Yugi, the Pharaoh’s wistful strategies and the Egyptian God Cards be enough to put a stop to the ultimate foe?
Hell of a blast from the past. I remember seeing this movie on PayPerView way back when it had recently come out. The cliche thematics of good and evil, heart of the cards and that cheesy friendship theme has always brought the story down, but I have to admit, this whole series and card game (and all they entail) do have one hell of an imagination towards their monsters. I used to have a bunch of great cards when I play, sucks that I gave them away like a total goddamned idiot. But as to the movie, its a pretty good way to remember your childhood and feel like a kid again.
Nostalgia doesn't prevent me from seeing this movie as it is: a cheap manufactured product that makes the Pokemon movies look like masterpieces. The crazy world logic of the anime is in full bloom, with nothing to stop the melodrama from overpowering the audience. The only part that was amusing was seeing Maximilien Pegasus beat around like a dog, it was hilarious and sad at the same time.
