    ★★½

    It's definitely not as bad as everyone's been making it out to be, but as a fan of the series, even I can admit that it's pretty unexceptional.

Entering this movie with high hopes, it managed to exceed expectations, and overtime I can see this ranking as one of my personal favorite animated movies.
