Can't believe there isn't a Naruto thread in the Anime section
Was very different to the usual Naruto movie where instead of being mostly action packed, this movie was an emotional tearjerker throughout (also helps that there was only canon characters too). I have to admit I felt like crying quite a few times lol. (ffs pls stop with the parents flashback pls pls).
The downside is that all the BGM is reused from the anime and there is a lot of canon flashbacks used to set the mood, it feels like the animation studio were making this as a filler arc for the anime but decided to call it a movie instead. They also didn't really explore the reversed character personalities very much, I found *****-Hinata quite interesting even though she got so little screentime :/
Sakura was useless as always but it was interesting how they used her as a wakeup call for Naruto throughout.
It helps to watch the "Prologue to Road to Ninja" and "Road to Sakura" filler episodes in the anime too, before watching this movie.
