      Michael Grafals I love this fairy tail movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/07/22 Full Review Daniel G Como me encanta Fairy Tail no será perfecta pero siempre seré parte del mejor gremio del mundo 👆❤️ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review Audience Member I love Fairytail the script was good it's an hour and 85 min and there's some scenes that you don't get it. and fast paced but at least I enjoy the movie and a huge fan of anime. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/20 Full Review Audience Member The purpose of this experimental double feature is to see if both films either alienate me with required pretexts or entertain me with managed seriality. Both films, "Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry" and "The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky", are canon bricks to their respective TV shows I never watched besides curious glimpses towards clips and finalizing trailers. Informal first impression, and I really, admittedly mean informal first impression, surprisingly built up an appeal that made both films compelling enough to ponder whether to see them or not. And the opportunity arises when the takeaway from this experiment won't just being engrossed by each entertainment values but to possibly broaden the cinematic horizon of my exploration into many films of different storytelling kinds, including the ones that are based on unseen television shows. From watching both films back-to-back, they're both pretty similar in quality and direction, including shared genres, especially in generic storytelling that films based on televised anime tend to take which isn't that impressive enough to stand out besides their own significance that escalates what defines the series in a moderate sense of first impression for newcomers. Fans in general finds easy satisfaction when it comes to expansive films of franchises they follow, and it's a guarantee that the two separate fandoms for these two series, or in an umbrella term for the anime genre in general taste, are going to enjoy these films a little more than the newcomers. As expected, regarding to the lingering hesitance, there are weird moments that fits the familiar aspects that juvenile anime carries in inappropriate fits for humorous purposes that works by little. Now, if I didn't say it clearly, both films gradually turned out enjoyably fun from the characters' fine expositions and arcs being vocally performed really well at their best in bringing out the heart to the fullest as seen within the dynamics in fueling the humor and energetically throughout the exciting action sequences, all exhilaratingly animated as well scored to make it engaging and easily acceptable when they're introduced. However, as both are similar with shared familiar qualities, they're not exactly rated the same with "Dragon Cry" being rated a half-star higher than "Prisoners of the Sky". Respectively, "Fairy Tail" channels emotions and mysteries to a twist with an impressive structure as its own boost while "The Seven Deadly Sins" suffers from just being an average flick with nonsenses and understandable derivations for its first feature looking for a tested structure to work on, even though it consists subtle theming. Concluding this experiment, both films proves that they're still enjoyable with enough seriality to get through without going further back to be engrossed by pretexts from the first episode to the cinematic present but instead replaced by newfound respect after meeting the characters and truly getting to know who they are. However, this experiment releases a new test for films based on television shows as canonizing continuation whether they maintained seriality or only expected the viewers to watch the new chapter that was strictly written for them. The latter route would become an overwhelming flaw that would damp the film's level. In terms of recommendation between the two films for any curious newcomers, "Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry" (B+) is more recommendable, and more impressive, than "The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky" (B). Although the former was at their second coming with experience while the latter series just begun in feeling the increased scale of what stories to tell on the silver screen; so, an unfair advantage but still equally compelling with levels of impression sought out. Finally, unlike last year's live-action "Bleach", both films didn't leave me hooked for more as in not interested to binge-watch both series from the beginning. Following the experiment, I went ahead and just recently checked out "Steven Universe: The Movie" for better results in terms of more enriching entertainment value. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The story/plot was fine, just what I would expect from Fairy tail, but it takes place AFTER Fairy tail reunites and the final season just started airing in October. The movie should have came out after FT reunites, so it made more sense for the anime only fans. Assuming it went from where the manga was at that time, it makes sense then. The animation style also didn't match the 2018 version and looked very different. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member It was really good but for those who didn't read the manga it's difficult to understand when its happening which is between the avatar and alvarez arc. With that in mind it was really good! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
