OK if you are a poke fan
I wasn’t expecting much. I found the Mewtwo movie better. I thought it would be interesting having a pokemon grant wishes, but hey this is for kids.
I have also seen pokemon 2 and will be watching Pokemon 7 Destiny Deoxys. I started watching the TV series then the red/blue gold silver and other games came out, then we got the Mewtwo movie so I have missed the ones between 2 and this one.
If you don’t know much about pokemon you wont get the small team rocket parts and the powers pokemon have such as Pikachu’s thunder attacks, but you wont miss much of the story. Go back and watch the TV series or play a gameboy version if you’re a bit lost but I doubt it.
A better name for the magician could have been better, though it was original. The plot is simple and you don’t need to guess whats going to happen.
A Pokémon Retrospective, Part 6
In my ongoing quest to destroy my childhood I have set out to (re)watch all Pokémon films, and see how they hold up now that I am an adult.
With all bad films, there is a recognisable point of no return in regard to quality. In “Pokémon: Jirachi – Whish Maker” it occurs before the two minute mark, when the narrator begin to relay the antagonist’s motivation like an underpaid new anchor. It feels like a motivation for the audience not to be invested during the remaining 97,5% of the film. Or to be entertained, for that matter.
Although I was watching the show when this film came out, I must admit my Pokéknowledge has become a bit rusty in my old age. “Jirachi” takes place during season 1 of the “Advanced Generation”, if I am correct, and features Ash, Brock, May and Max as protagonists. I remember May, because I found her more attractive than Misty (as good a reason as any), but Max made a big 404 pop up in my head. In hindsight probably because of the selective memory that has allowed me to repress many traumatising childhood events, for Max is insufferable, and lacks the additional X-chromosome that helped me put up with his sister.
The four of them are traveling to see the ‘Millennium Comet’ that is to appear soon. As they spend the night outdoors, a fair is constructed on the spot — admittedly some very appealing visuals — where Ash and Co. visit The Great Butler’s Magic Show. During the performance’s climax, a mysterious crystal is held up, and starts speaking to… Max…
Surely, the realisation that that vexatious half-pint of discharge is going to be the film’s focus is another point of no return. The one halfway down the waterfal. Perhaps the writers thought they could make him more likable as de facto protagonist, but all he does is whine and boast for an hour and twenty minutes. This is even stranger considering that he is a fine side-character in the other Advanced Generation films. The writers clearly knew how to handle Max. They just chose not to. One wonders whether they deliberately refused to write a competent script.
The crystal turns out to contain the dormant Pokémon Jirachi, who has the power to fulfil any wish with its teleportation powers. The catch is that it can wake only once every 1,000 years, around the appearance of the comet and in company of a friend, as which it has for some reason picked Max.
Seeing that the boy is chosen, Butler gives him the crystal out of his altruistic love for all of nature and mankind. Not really, of course. After the heroes hatch Jirachi (and the 15 minutes of boring filler that follow), it becomes apparent he is planning to use the Pokémon’s powers to summon the legendary Groudon. Strangely, he wants to do so using an expensive, vulnerable and overtly untrustworthy machine. Couldn’t he just make a wish? Yes, Jirachi can only use teleportation, but acquiring a real Groudon instead of making a home-baked one was the plan to begin with.
During the second act, the protagonists rescue Jirachi from Butler’s clutches and decide to take it to a place related to the comet. Going there takes about 20 minutes of nothing in particular, following by 20 minutes of listless action. At least the nocturnal backgrounds are nice to look at.
Les us look at the film as a whole: Bad exposition – inciting incident – filler – actual start of the plot – filler – generic climax. Perhaps it would have worked better as a short film, cutting the crap. Then again, it would have worked best of all if it hadn’t been made at al.
