The Straw Hat Pirates enter the rough seas of the New World in search of the hidden treasures of the Pirate King, Gol D. Roger－One Piece. On their voyage, the pirates come across a terrifying, powerful man, former Marine Admiral Z. Z is accused of having stolen the "Dyna Stones", weapons believed to have the power to shake up the New World. The Marine Headquarters believes Z is about to use it to end the pirate era, and with it, the lives of many innocent people. In fear of such a phenomenal event, marines start to take action against the former admiral. Even if it means stumbling upon marines and the navy, the Straw Hat Pirates decided to chase after Z and stop him from causing havoc. As they continue to embark on their ventures, the pirates bump into new and familiar acquaintances.
This was probably the best one piece movie (I haven’t seen them all though I stopped after movie 6). But even though it was really good in comparison with it’s uninteresting predecessors it still had some flows. The story was interesting as a plot but it had some minor problems with the development (some scenes could been cut off like the second batle between Luffy and Z). The good thing is that it had some points of the original anime that we are not seeing now and I at least had miss like the appearance of the admirals especially Kizaru’s or the sea train. The animation was good old Toei and the fights especially the last one were animated pretty good, The sound well the ending is consisted of two demos from Avrile Lavigne who to tell the truth I’m not a big fan of her. Still I believe they could have just keep the first one as a whole and skip the second because it was out of the anime’s atmosphere. The OST’s were pretty good but the one who really stood out was the song that Z sings right when the movie starts. Later on Daisuke Ono (the voice actor of Kizaru) also sings it and the result is a real eargasm. Really one of the reasons that I would recommend you to see this movie is only to hear his version of the song XD.The voice actors were almost all pretty good but I didn’t like a lot those who were voicing Z’s underlings. The new important characters that this movie introduces us is Z and his two underlings. Z was a very well built character I sympathized with him a lot but I can’t say the same for his two companions who had very little screen time unfortunately. As for the enjoyment I pretty much enjoyed this film it was way better from the previews one piece films but I believe that if the writers tried a little bit more the movie would be even more awesome. Overall it was a really nice try. I would recommend you to watch this movie in your spare time if you like one piece. It’s not something extremely wow but it’s not something really bad either.
