If you ever played the game, you'll know what this movie is about.

Naruhodou is a lawyer. Suddenly his partner dies and only leaves him with her sister Mayoi, a strange clock and the note "Mayoi". Now he is supposed to save Mayoi from jail and finding out why his partner had to die. And there is a lot more than you can see...

Naruhodou played by Narimiya Hiroki was the perfect idea. Even though I've only played Apollo Justice until now, I still felt very connected to this movie and the main character. This movie is just like the game. Blinking letters everywhere, the phases of the game when it comes to cross-examining the witness, them just correcting their testimony... And the funny noises when Naruhodou showed them some evidence, when the witness slowly got cornered and got nervous... Everything was there. I'm sure they took it 1:1 from the game.

But it didn't make the movie less enjoyable. I found it funny, got excited whenever they showed me a new side of the characters and I liked the strange hair after I got used to it.

The story is exciting as well, even though I sometimes felt like it's too long and tangled. It made me stop the movie once for a tiny break, that's why I had to deduct one rating point. But in the end I didn't regret that I watched the movie, and if they made another one, I'd still watch it.

Ace Attorney is so funny. 4*!

Both feature lawyers and court sessions in a comical way.

Both movies are comedies about lawyers and are largely set in court.

What ever the cost, I am definitely buying the DVD.
I think the added "comedy" should be included, I oddly liked this movie, and as a huge ass fan of the game series itself... the movie was pretty decent!
