"I saw this one in theaters as a kid. And I've got to admit, it looked pretty astounding on the big screen. Lugia in particular really had that sense of wonder to him. It was viscerally thrilling, but for me, it just didn't leave quite the impact some of the other Pokémon movies did. [Robyn:"The downside to me was that the characters motivations seem weaker in this one, particularly with the villain, Lawrence. But the soundtrack is actually among the best I've heard in all of the Pokémon movies. In fact, the Power of One remains my all-time favorite score in Anime."] Geebus, Robin! That's high praise!"
Pokémon 3: Spell Of The Unknown
April 6, 2001
"Despite the Unown being the most boring protagonists ever, at least Ash, Brock and Misty still have their old resonating characters in this movie. I do still think the Unown are the stupidest Pokémon ever, but fortunately, the humans really helped redeem this movie."
