Synopsis


Summer Wars
An adolescent math wiz unintentionally plunges the virtual world into chaos by solving a numerological riddle that makes the global network vulnerable to attack in this animated sci-fi adventure comedy. When Natsuki asks Kenji to pose as her boyfriend at her grandmother's upcoming birthday party, the smitten young numbers man jumps at the opportunity. But his summer of romance takes an unexpected turn when Kenji receives a complex math riddle on his cell phone, and solves it without a second thought. In the process, however, Kenji breaches the security of Oz, an extensive virtual realm containing everything from online shopping records to sensitive government documents and even the codes to launch nuclear weapons. Later, when a malicious AI program dubbed Love Machine begins gathering all of this data and threatens to bring the entire information infrastructure to its knees, Kenji, Natsuki, and her family must figure out a way to clear up the mess before it plunges the planet into chaos. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Good but not my cup of tea

    The animation is great especially when they are in the world oz. If you liked the first digimon movie you'll probably like this. It has that same feel of togetherness as well as similar comedy and of course animation. My only real complaint is the characters. I believe one of the themes was we are all flawed but family will look past those flaws. Even so I hated how some characters acted. The male protagonist is extremely wimpy and pretty much is along for the ride. Most of his facial expression look like a scared who from Dr. Suis.he does get his moments to shine but he was pretty frustrating to watch. Other infuriating characters were the kids and police officer. At times they do things that hurts the group greatly and your just wondering why these people especially the kids are left to run amok. But I'm sure this was all intention to give that big family feel. But I grew up with a very small family so I can't really relate to it hence why I said it wasn't my cup a tea. But by no means is it a bad movie it just didn't connect.

    Visually Appealing!

    This is a pretty good anime feature. I didn't have any issue with the dub; to me, everything sounded like it should be. Visually, I must say this stuff is total eye candy! It's an interesting take on the social network craze going on; though of course, the show is on a totally different level than real life.... Anime on Bluray definitely looks great! I highly recommend!

    This was an interesting movie that I really enjoyed and wound up watching a few times over a couple of weeks. This movie was directed by the same director as Wolf Children and the Digimon movie. I thought the movie was really well done with an intriguing plot that had a good balance of fun, serious, and sad scenes.

    A guy gets hired on to be a girls Boyfriend to show off to her family reunion; In addition the internet is in trouble. The movie is great along with the directors other work(I.E. Wolf children and The Boy and the beast) For anyone who has large or extended family they see time to time, they nail of those get togethers.

    This movie is fantastic you could ask for a better plot, better characters, or more of anything. for the sake of being unbiased things do get a little hectic at points but never to an overwhelming point. I put it up there with the magical genius of "spirited away". a must see for anyone especially an anime fan.

    The dazzling computer animation that details the virtual world of OZ complements the "real-world" plots of a fractured family reunion, a fake teenage romance, and a malicious virus that threatens both sides of the firewall.
