Movie Review: Bleach - The Hell Verse

Bleach: Hell Chapter (Burichi: Jigoku-hen) is the fourth feature film based on the Bleach manga. It was released in Japanese theaters on December 4, 2010. It is directed by Noriyuki Abe, while the screenplay was written by Natsuko Takahashi. Tite Kubo is the production director and character designer is Masashi Kudo. Kubo has stated that he has been involved from the planning and scenario stage. Bleach: Hell Chapter's ending theme is "Save The One, Save The All" by T.M. Revolution. 

Hmmm...Bleach is my favorite manga and the only anime i have watched. Hell Chapter is the 4th anime movie coming out and i was really excited about since i loved the previous ones.

Unfortunately, i was really disappointed.Opposite the others lacked both the good storyline and the action. While it was okay for watching it once, there were many things that didn't interest me.
In general i can say i found it boring. A thing i really liked about the other movies, was how the rest Shinigami had big part in them and at the end there was always a big fight with all of them. Getting to see their shikai, etc and enjoy it. Here they barely appear at the end.
The story was also simple as saving Ichigo's sister while the others had some shinigami background story which was always more interesting since we don't know many of them.
Another thing that bothered me was how they overused Ichigo's final hollow form. I mean, yeah okay...we all love him with his long hair and holy shit power but when you use it to much, it's not that special anymore.
Lastly, there were moments that from simple anime the image turned out simple forms of 3D and you were like "huh?". It didn't suit the movie and it wasn't matched nicely.

I'm sure every Bleach fan watched the movie. The main problem is how many re-watched it. I know not only i didn't rewatch it but when some friends mentioned to watch it, i said no. For the simple people, who want an anime movie i can't say i recommend it. 

P.S: Why they removed Ichigo's bankai movie theme? O_O WHY?
