Chicago Reader - Lisa Alspector
By the time the fighting between clones and their originals turned to fraternal bonding, I was quite moved, even blissed out.
San Francisco Examiner - Wesley Morris
The film is obviously a long-form episode of a show better digested in 22-minute segments.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
It's just a sound-and-light show, linked to the marketing push for Pokemon in general.
USA Today - Mike Clark
Plays a little like a pacifistic variation on Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon."
New York Post - Hannah Brown
Strictly a kids' movie, but parents may be relieved to sit back and enjoy the fact that for two full hours, they won't have to hear the kids asking them to buy any more Pokemon trading cards.
