My Hero Academia: Two Heroes (2018) Review: Good but Nothing Special
All Might takes Deku to I-Island to visit an old friend. As we can guess, on the island Deku will meet some of his classmates. Here we can see the movie is having trouble making excuses on how to make Deku's friends also come to the island.
However, the huge expectation drastically collapses as the My Hero Academia movie tends to show what the series has explored before. One of them is how the students arguing whether they have to fight the villains or not because they are just students.
In other words, besides the opening scene, the final battle, and the new setting on I-Island where the top scientists work, what this movie offers does not exceed what we already have known from the series.
The plot tends to be predictable. You can even guess how it will play out once Deku and All-Might set their feet on I-Island. Fortunately, Dave and Melissa's backstory makes the predictable twist quite emotional through the story of friendship and All-Might's legacy.
And luckily, the high expectations due to the opening sequence are paid off by an intense and epic final fight. If you think that the fight is over when All-Might intervenes, you are wrong because My Hero Academia: Two Hero still has something up its sleeve. A secret weapon that will make the fans shiver.
And thumbs up for this movie for including Deku’s friends in the final fight. Typically, most anime movies only highlight the main character at the final battle.
Sutradara: Kenji Nagasaki
