      david l Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva is a faithful and surprisingly strong video game adaptation that managed to honor the original franchise through the use of wonderful traditional animation, pleasantly old-fashioned soundtrack and excellent characterization. The second half featured too much action and not all of its subplots worked, but most of the screenplay was well written and the characters are just as charming and fun as they were in the games. The dialogue and humor are two other highlights here. Consequently, this is one of the more underrated anime movies and a rare game adaptation that really works. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Great plot and amazing music, as a big fan of the franchise I fell satisfied, very underrated movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun movie for everyone! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member If you like Layton Games (like me) you’ll love the movie. If you are unfamiliar with the series then this will still be a fun and charming movie for you to see. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Actually the best video game movie of all time - so much that IT'S CANON IN THE SERIES. That tells you already that this movie is phenomonal, even after like 14 views. If you want to get into the Professor Layton series, grab a copy of The Last Specter and pop in this movie while you play the game - you won't be dissapointed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Charming mystery story. The story gets a bit absurd in the third act, but the atmosphere and characters make it a wonderful journey.
