Taking place in the Johto League Champions story arc, Mew Two Returns is what could be considered the sequel to Pokemon: The First Movie.  Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket, discovers Mew Two's hiding place and along with an army of Team Rocket agents, sets out to capture him.  Ash, his friends, and Jessie and James also stumble onto Mew Two's secret location and fight Giovanni to defend Mew Two and the Clone Pokemon.

Review: This movie wasn't released into the theaters, but rather was sent directly to DVD.  A good call, since they probably could've shown it on Kids WB or as one of Cartoon Network's Cartoon Movies.  I watched this a bunch of times and I noticed one interesting fact: Meowth gets the most lines in here.  Mew Two's character development was great, especially considering that I didn't know his character could be developed to begin with.  Mew only appears briefly as part of a dream sequence.  However, one thing that they could've gone into better detail about was Domino (the Black Tulip).  Why was she so important to Giovanni?  And did anybody besides me notice how she looks kind of like a female Ash?

Action Level: 4/5
This didn't have just Pokemon battles, but humans battling as well.  Showing that sometimes, it takes a human to do things a Pokemon can't.

Romance Level: 3/5
Luna and Alex developing a relationship was unexpected.  Kind of like Fred and Daphne at the end of the Scooby-Doo movie.  They don't show too many Pokemon episodes like these any more.

Comedy Level: 1/5
Domino's ditzy girl routine was hilarious even if they didn't intend it to be.

Adult Level: 1/5
Attacks against humans is pretty adult-oriented... for Pokemon anyway.

Drama Level: 2/5
Mew Two's character develops the most over the course of the movie.

Overall Level: 3/5
It's a perfect fit as a bridge between the Pokemon TV series and the Pokemon movies.  Try it, then if you like it, you can buy it.  It's cheap enough.
