Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light ★★ 2004 (PG)

Yu-Gi-Oh hits the big screen with the television cartoon's storyline (picking up at the end of the series' third season) and game-play in tow, meaning only fans (and their suffering parents) need to see it. Yu-GI-Oh, whose body hosts an Egyptian spirit, plays a combat monster game, apparently for the future of humanity and occasionally for the players' souls. The Pyramid of Light in question is the most powerful card, and controls the destiny of the players. If your kids aren't fans, count yourself lucky. If they are, keep in mind that game cards were given out as inticement to get people into the theater. 89m/C VHS, DVD .
