So I just finished the Phoenix Wright movie and I have to say it was one of the closest made videogame movies i have ever seen. Yes, it may not have been the turnabout everyone wanted to see but the adaptation from game to movie blew my mind. I really hope they do at least two more with Franziska Von Karma and Godot as the antagonists prosecutors.
What are y'alls thoughts and comments about the movie?

Definitely agree with you here, those were the spitting images of their characters. This is the kind of stuff i want to see when making an live action show from a game.

From what I've seen, Japan usually does a pretty good job of translating the spirit of an game/anime/manga into live action without completely bastardizing it or making really stupid changes that bring down the story instead of enhance (and yes, I'm looking dead at you Hollywood).
That said, I thought the movie was alright. Personally would have liked to have seen more of the first and third case to flesh out Phoenix more as a lawyer and I felt they could have left some of the wackier cartoon elements out. But the movie was interesting, well casted, faithful to the source, and most importantly: it wasn't a tragedy so I'm game for some sequels.

@PrincessSugoi Yeah, they did leave out some of the wackier cartoon elements and they do a well job of staying faithful indeed. Most of all it wasnt a tragedy to the game itself lmao ~

Takashi Miike almost always delivers. He does like 5+ films per year and freely admits that he often does them just for the money, but he takes every one seriously.
I am your poorly translated JRPG.
