1 review about Pokemon - Destiny Deoxys

Another film in the Pokemon franchise

  • Dec 1, 2009
This film was released on DVD by Miramax on February 15, 2005, and it is the last Pokemon film to be distributed by Miramax in the United States. Destiny Deoxys also has the distinction of being the first Pokemon film to not have a short packaged with it.

Pokemon: Destiny Deoxys clocks in at 98 minutes, making it one of the longer Pokemon films. Personally, I thought there were one or two sections of the film that could have been shortened a little and not affect the storytelling very much. To me, the pacing of this film isn't quite as strong as in the previous Pokemon films.

On the DVD release, the first special feature is "What's That Pokemon? Meet the New Pokemon From the Movie." This is a series of still images that not only include pictures of most of the Pokemon shown in the film, but also include the name, the height, weight, species, and abilities for each one. The Pokemon included in this feature are: Rayquaza, Minun, Plusle, Deoxys, and Muchlax.

Next is a gallery of poster art from the Japanese release of the film. The feature includes a total of three posters (with two of them on the same page, so it's only a two page feature). Then, there is "On Location With the Director." This feature runs a little over two and a half minutes. It has Japanese audio, but there is an English voice dubbed over it instead of using subtitles. This feature shows the location scouting in Vancouver, Canada. Then, the director briefly talks about the actual film.

The final extra is "Be a Poke-Quiz Wiz!" This is like the trivia games that appeared on Pokemon 4Ever, Pokemon Heroes, and Jirachi Wish Maker. However, there was one major difference: the only time there was any audio with this game was when the footage from the film was shown when a questions was answered correctly. Outside of that, it was silent.

While Pokemon: Destiny Deoxys is a decent film, I was rather disappointed by the lack of effort Miramax put into the DVD extras on this release. However, if you are a fan of the Pokemon anime, you should purchase this DVD for your collection.
