From the acclaimed television and OVA series comes the full length movie of Sakura Wars. The animation is much better in this movie and when you watch the Oobu being loaded on the transporter bullet engine you are in for a wild treat.
Some characters may appear to be flately drawn but this is a more somber and darker movie.
If not familier with the characters do not get this first but buy the TV series then the OVA series followed by this movie. It is then that you will understand the characters. I would have given it a 5 star, but the extended CGI loading and launching of the bullet engine was a bit distracting from the story line.

I didn't really like this movie. The dubbing on it was not really good. The tv series dubbing is excellent but the dubbing on the movie is terriable to me. This movie was kinda of boring but cool.

"Sakura Wars - The Movie" is a creation that builds upon every aspect of the four games which it is based on. For someone who has played these games this movie is a fun experience because all of the characters have already been fleshed out and the parts of the story that the movie doesn't explore have already been explained. It's nice because one doesn't have to listen to a bunch of introductions for characters that they already know, but unfortunately for someone who hasn't played the games this movie must surely seem very disjointed with incredibly shallow characters (and a whole lot of them ^^;). This is a movie for fans, and if you are new to the world of Sakura Taisen this isn't the place to start.
Having played all the games, I have to say I really enjoyed this movie. The animation is a little different from the games (the characters look a bit smaller-eyed), but is absolutely lovely. You can almost understand why the Ecole De Paris OVA and the TV series' animation was so mediocre after watching this, because this is expensive high-quality stuff. They must have spent all their money on it ^^; The backgrounds are especially notable, and the Imperial Theater seems to have gotten a revamp. It's very pretty ^_^
As always, the voice acting is top notch. I can't comment on the english dub because I haven't watched it, but the original will bring back every cast member from Sakura right down to the Baragumi. Lachette's actress is also very good, but even though I have heard she is some sort of professional, I can't stand her singing voice. During the "Subete wa Umi e" song performance it's very grating and drowns Sakura's voice out completely.
The story isn't anything special, but it isn't bad. It follows the usual fare...

Sakura Wars the Movie is one of the best Anime Movies that I ever has seen ( I hope I can see it in the German cinema once)
this film has all Action fun and beautiful pictures !!!!
No matter you are a Sakura Wars Fan or not Each Anime fan must have seen this film and the Extras on the DVD is wonderful
But there is a mistake in the Limited Edition (not on the DVD)the mistake is on the Mini-Pencil Board Set !!!
On the card over Reni is a Misspellings !! Her Name is RENI NOT LENI
You like Anime ?? Buy it !!

If you aren't familiar with the series first, be aware this movie pretty much assumes you already have an emotional investment in the characters and have achieved comfort in the entire somewhat silly idea of tokyo's elite protection forces being an all-girls song and dance troupe.
I AM a fan of the series, yet this movie left me entirely flat. It just isn't very good. Add to this the fact that large portions of the anime are computer animated... Now, I'm a computer animator by profession, and it is well done animation, but I feel that the 3d/CG approach clashes with the fluid grace of cel animation. Certainly the fight scenes were more stiff and less emotional as 3d animation. The sad truth is, it's cheaper to use 3d, but all the toon-shaders in the world don't take away the warmth and expressiveness of hand-drawn anime.
If you are really inclined to get this, check the return policy... Personally I would suggest some of the better titles Amazon carries - look at Haibane Renmei, Neon Genesis Evangellion, Martian Sucessor Nadesico, Please Teacher, Spirited Away, Key the Metal Idol, or Lain...
