Review: Pokémon The Movie: Black: -Victini and Reshiram’ and ‘Pokémon The Movie: White - Victini and Zekrom

A couple of weeks ago we were sent a copy of Pokémon the Movie: Black to review. Mister A couldn't wait to get it in the DVD player and he's been forever asking for it since. To be honest it was a welcome break from Ben 10 so that in itself gets it a good review from me!

As you know Mister A is 5 years old and this went down really well - he is a massive Ben 10 fan and rarely takes a break to watch/play/do anything else. Luckily he gave the Pokemon Black Movie a go and he is now a big fan.

I did my usual probing for informayion and in all honesty I couldn't get much out of him about the story line. Here's what he said about the DVD:
"Pokemon Black is so cool, it's my new favourite. It's really, really good. My favourite bits are when Victini gives Ash power to jump and when Damon uses Victini's power."

That was pretty much all I could get but about half an hour later he came back to me and said;

"Ooooh, d'you know what mummy? I also liked it when the pillars of protection went around Ash Victini and Picachu. Put that on your blog!"

So I have! I think it's a big thumbs up here!

To tell you a bit about the 2 Movie Pack:
Ash, Pikachu and friends embark on a new adventure in the feature length films, Pokémon The Movie: Black—Victini and Reshiram and Pokémon The Movie: White—Victini and Zekrom -launching at retail stores nationwide on 9th April 2012 as a special double pack DVD.

When Ash and his friends enter a battle competition in Eindoak Town, they meet the Mythical Pokémon Victini, who becomes their newest friend. Disaster strikes when the misguided wanderer Damon seizes Victini for his own plans!

Can Ash prove himself a hero and earn the help of the Legendary Reshiram—or Zekrom—to rescue Victini and save Eindoak Town?
