Yu-Gi-Oh! - The Movie

1

A 90-minute advert in search of a storyline, Yu-Gi-Oh is based on a cult Japanese game that encourages suckers - - sorry, players - - to spend their pocket money collecting monster trading-cards. Taking the game's intricate rule-system way too seriously - - ""Not so fast! I still have two cards face down and they'll bring down your life points to a measly 1000!"" - - this follows champion player Yugi (voiced by Dan Green) as he battles an Egyptian God. It's so dull, the American vocal talent are forced to stick the occasional joker into the pack just to keep themselves awake: "What a horrible nightmare! No more white-wine spritzers before bedtime for me!" Top Trumps were never like this.
