It certainly helps to be a One Piece fan, but even newcomers will find much to enjoy about this 15th feature in the long-running series. One Piece Film: Red is gorgeous, funny, exciting, and even has great songs. Uta is a new character, and this story is more or less self-contained, so it's not hard to get a handle on things. It's crisply told, with various surprises tucked away, and even though it seems as if there's a lot going on, it all clicks into place. The animation is also top-notch, with a consistently dazzling use of colors and space, especially during Uta's cute, super-catchy songs and during the spectacular final battle.

One Piece Film: Red does a fine job of balancing its exposition with plenty of playful, funny dialogue. The characters interact like family members, constantly ribbing each other, and it feels organic. The movie does objectify many of its supporting/background female characters, depicting them as busty and wearing skimpy outfits. But otherwise, there's great teamwork on display among characters of all shapes, sizes, and colors. The Japanese version with subtitles is arguably slightly tamer than the English dub, with fewer four-letter words. But the songs are presented in their original Japanese -- and performed by J-pop star Ado -- in both versions (the dub includes subtitles for the lyrics).
