Assigned on a mission to capture Mukade, a missing-nin, Naruto Uzumaki sets out for the once glorious historic ruins of "Ouran", where he pursues and corners the rouge ninja. Mukade's goal is revealed to be a dormant leyline within the ruins; he unleashes the power of the leyline, causing a light to envelop Naruto, sending him into the past, 20 years before the series began. When Naruto awakens, he comes into contact with the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze.

Fresh and Exciting
The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful
This movie tries so hard to be funny, yet it falls flat every time. Just another example of recycled ideas repackaged with women in an attempt to appeal to a certain audience.
I have become accustomed with some pretty weird ideas in Naruto movies and a lot of useless scenes before Naruto unleashes some fox power or has the will of fire do something or something ridiculous like this. In Lost Tower, the story is much more believable, the characters are interesting and likable and overall the only thing I had a problem with is that Naruto is a very young one, a long time before the one in the anime as I know it. Of course, this was released in 2010 and has reached Europe a year later and I am seeing now, so a lot has happened since then.Basically, Naruto goes in the past, fights the evil madman ninja and saves the girl. He still gets none, though, which should have been frustrating for anyone not Japanese. Some interesting interaction with his father, though. Bottom line: an easy win for the Naruto movies.
The action scenes are superb, animation its awesome as usual in studio pierrot movies, the story is actually pretty good. it has time travel and a crazy villain. its more about naruto alone which is very cool.some thing that i like in naruto movies are the villains, in most shonen anime movies the common cliché is a team of some villains and their boss vs all the main characters. in naruto movies they come with some good creative ideas for this. This time there's only one villain, a puppetmaster (i thought at the beginning of the movie he was pretty weak but at the last part when he is kicking everybody's ass he feels pretty strong. he fights trough his puppets so we see various shapes of him.its was great but i felt like naruto was the naruto from the time the previous movie came out, and i was expecting to see him in sennin mode kicking ass. the villain is good but the girl its only here for the almost give up-cheesy song before naruto's speech. About minato and the others from the past: it totally feels like a metal gear experience, because they just appear at sometimes say some things and disappear, letting you return to the video game. They say that they have something important to do, which is not really important because every major event happens in front of naruto. also i read about kid kakashi being proud and bla bla bla in this movie: kakashi has 2 lines in the whole movie so don't expect character development with him. I'm nitpicking i guess, its a great movie, its just that I'm a bitch like most anime fans.JUST ONE THING, the last technique of the movie, BLEW MY MIND! that technique its the most awesome thing in all naruto movies ever, it all comes down to a final razengan...
