For my friends and family, I'll risk my life for this mission! Long ago, a masked shinobi unleashed the Nine-Tailed Fox onto the Village Hidden in the Leaves to spread chaos and destruction. But the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, and his wife, Kushina Uzumaki, sealed the Tailed Beast into their newborn son Naruto to save the village, foiling the shinobi's plans. Years later, Naruto and his friends succeed in driving away the infamous Akatsuki, who have mysteriously returned from the dead. Upon returning to the village, the young shinobi are praised by their families for completing a dangerous mission. Reminded of how alone he is, Naruto begins to wonder what it's like to have parents, when a strange masked figure appears before him - the same masked shinobi responsible for the death of his parents!

Most anime fans will agree that movies are always subpar when compared to the original series. I put this down to the fact that they're trying to start and finish a story in the space of an hour and a half, a story in which they like to remind viewers (and introduce new viewers) to the characters and their abilities. This wastes a lot of time. They also like to make new villains and, while there's nothing wrong with that, you have to meet them, too. This usually works out fine in other movies, but the trouble with anime movies - or any movie based on a TV show - is that you're used to watching the show itself, seeing characters and villains established over hours and hours, and you're spoilt by deep stoylines that can be created as they are simply for the sheer number of episodes that anime and the like tend to last. Road to Ninja, however, seems to have avoided this. The heroes are slightly re-established, but not to the degree it has been done in the past, and the villain is a very familiar face. As such, no time is wasted building introductions or even establishing the villain's motive. This movie fits in perfectly without having to have been a part of the anime. It's seamless. Call it the villain's 'test run' of his plan. It's also hilarious and surprisingly heart-wrenching. I don't feel the need to talk about the plot. Just look at the cover of the DVD, that should tell you enough. In short, this is the best of all Naruto/Naruto Shippuden movies, and definitely the best all-round anime movie I've seen. I cannot fault it for a moment.
