The Reviews for Summer Wars (2009) 720p

common plots, built into a wonderful movieReviewed bymll23Vote: 8/10

As someone who watches many movies, this movie had it's archetypes that are often used. The kid who becomes a man, saving the world, the popular girl and the less than outstanding guy.

With all this in mind, I was pleasantly surprised by the this movie. The characters weren't exceptionally over built, nor artificial, the family dynamic was fun to watch, and the series of twists and turns that occurred as the movie progressed really were inspiring.

This movie may have used common plots, but it did in a way that was both inviting, intriguing, and most of all enjoyable. If you have 100 minutes to sit down, and watch a movie of laughs, loss, and self growth, definitely give it a try

A Nutshell Review: Summer WarsReviewed byDICK STEELVote: 10/10

I had enjoyed Mamoru Hosada's anime film The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, and had eagerly anticipated his latest effort Summer Wars to hit our shores since last year. I'm glad it did, and it busted my expectations, proving that he's no one hit wonder, and together with writer Satoko Okudera, have again come up with a worthy tale animated under the Madhouse banner.

Which is beautiful to look at, and an assault of the visual senses from the first frame, with so many simultaneous action happening in the same frame that just begs for a rewatch in order to try and get everything, with its highly detailed digital world reminiscent of an equivalent psychological one in Satoshi Kon's Paprika. Here, we're introduced into the online world of OZ, where everyone is highly reliant on to get day to day transactions done, from making phone calls to complex monitoring of distress signals be it personal health, or critical infrastructures. Think of it as Facebook on steroids, with the provision of interactive avatars that can be accessed from virtually any connected device big or small, and containing profiles of just about everything that's online.

It is this over-reliance of technology for communications and interaction, that Summer Wars aims itself at with a cautionary tale that we should not forget the ties that matters, the real world ones, and especially that of the family. These are real bonds forged, which an online one can be susceptible to crackers and exploitation, in the name of fun and without evaluation of consequences. It's the real, old-school styled world versus the convenience that technology has brought, and our continued evolution along the digital lines, missing out on the old fashioned way of communication that we get to see put to good use here, from dated filofaxes, to thumbing through of address books, postcards, and letters.

The tale centers around the "almost-math-olympiad" representative of Japan, high-schooler Kenji Koiso (voiced by Ryunosuke Kamiki), who volunteers his time and service to his crush, the most beautiful girl in the school Natsuki Shinohara (Nanami Sakuraba) to spend the summer at her ancestral home in Ueda. Little does he know that Natsuki wants him to pose as her boyfriend, since she had promised the matriarch of her family, Sakae Jinnouchi (Sumiko Fuji), a powerful, well connected woman, to do so when she goes back for the holidays. And what an extended family it proved to be, giving opportune to the introduction of quirky, lovable characters, each with their own traits which may prove stereotypical, but I highly enjoyed their presence.

As with any large family, there is bound to be someone who had outcast himself and not very well liked, said to be the black sheep and isn't on cordial terms with everyone. The threat faced to the family and the world at large somehow got intertwined together, and makes for an incredibly engaging time witnessing how events unravel themselves, with new discoveries made and alliances forged as the family stands together to do battle and wrestle control over what was essentially dropped on their laps to address. Pleasant surprises get thrown up along the way to keep the adrenaline pumping, and of course to keep you guessing, which is a very nice touch from the usual formula. And Hosada seems to have a knack for making films with strong female characters once again, even having the males in the family conceding so.

Summer Wars is an extremely rich story take takes place on two different planes, the real and the virtual, with good themes and some very beautiful, detailed animation to make you cry out for more. A love story also managed to get snuck in with the littlest of scenes, but always packing powerful emotions throughout. If anyone's not convinced on the power of Japanese animation of late, then give this film a go. I'd bet you won't get disappointed, and I highly rate this early in the year into my shortlist of the best I've seen this year, thus far. Don't miss this on the big screen!

I absolutely loved "Summer Wars"!Reviewed bydee.reidVote: 7/10

If you liked 2006's "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time," you're going to absolutely love "Summer Wars." Mamoru Hosoda's new film is an oddball mix of science fiction, cyber-punk, teen romance and family comedy/drama, all rolled up into one beautiful, lavish-looking Anime' that also somehow manages to throw in a pretty chilling end-of-the-world fight for the future of humanity. This has to be the best animated film to come out so far this year, or was it last year (I honestly can't remember). All I know is, I would have passed this film had I not read "The Washington Post's" "Style" section early one morning.

Regardless of how you feel about Japanese animation, "Summer Wars" is one film that the whole family can enjoy. Unlike most family films, however, this one doesn't insult the intelligence of the audience, nor does it treat its characters in a half-a**ed, perfunctory fashion. Every character in this film is alive and brimming over the top with personality, poise and humor, a rarity in most films these days - whether they be animated or live-action. But you know how most American audiences are here: they're pathologically afraid of anything foreign (i.e., not American). And then there's also all those negative stereotypes that Japanese animation is violent and full of sex.

Not true here.

It all just shows the marvelous degree of attention to detail that Hosoda paid to this project. It definitely has the makings of a labor of love for the Japanese filmmaker. "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" was an enjoyably light-hearted sci-fi/comedy romp in its own right. I liked it well enough (I rated it a 10/10), yet I still something felt missing from it. I didn't find anything missing from "Summer Wars," a brilliantly inventive and highly original movie that combines elements of the online virtual world Second Life, "The Social Network" (2010), "The Matrix" (1999), "Meet the Parents" (2000), and "The Simpsons" together with a bunch of other stuff I can't really remember.

17-year-old high schooler Kenji Koiso is a mathematical genius who like most high school geniuses, is shy, uncoordinated, and inarticulate in the area of girls and love. Things become even more complicated for him when the girl of his dreams (and fellow classmate) Natsuki Shinohara "hires" him out to be her fake fiancé to please her ailing great-grandmother at an upcoming family reunion. Cue the family dramatics. Cue the crazy and/or obnoxious relatives. Cue all-out familial craziness!

Sakae Jinnouchi is the 90-year-old family matriarch of this motley bunch of oddball relatives. The Jinnouchi clan fought bravely against the army of the Tokugawa shogunate that ruled all of Japan for nearly three centuries. The spirit of the Jinnouchi clan lives on to the present day, as poor Kenji finds out first-hand. His feelings for Natsuki will have to take a backseat when he receives a random text message one night that contains a 250-character algorithm. Kenji solves it with little difficulty.

The next day, Kenji finds out that he is responsible for bringing down Oz, the film's online equivalent of Facebook combined with MySpace combined with a world-wide chat room/business center. Additionally, when Kenji solved the algorithm, he also gave a malevolent A.I. (artificial intelligence) called "Love Machine" instant access to pretty much everything in the online world. And it isn't long before "Love Machine," using Kenji's online avatar to hack into accounts and steal information, sets its sights on also conquering the real world, even if it means killing all life on Earth as we know it. This apocalyptic showdown between man and A.I. unfolds amidst the family drama at Sakae's hilltop estate - Will Kenji get the pretty girl Natsuki? Will Natsuki return the affection? Who will stop "Love Machine's" online rampage?

"Summer Wars" is very easily one of the greatest Anime' films ever made. The film is a dazzling display of vibrant, pretty colors, computer-generated backgrounds/scenery, and lively three-dimensional characters. I honestly haven't been this in love with a group of characters in animated form in a very long time. Every single member of the Jinnouchi family is alive & well and have their time to shine with familiar family theatrics in carefully written scenes of family comedy/drama. And the battle scenes in cyber-space are brilliantly animated and executed, and are appropriately edge-of-your-seat thrilling.

You have to give praise to a movie that starts out like something off "The Brady Bunch" and ends with an apocalyptic showdown like in "The Matrix." Now in today's filmmaking industry on both sides of the ocean, that's what I call originality.
