Destroy All Pirates! Said to be comparable to the Ancient Weapons of old, the Marines' trump card, the 'Dyna Stones', have suddenly been stolen by a group of renegade vigilantes. The terrifyingly powerful man responsible, former Marine Admiral 'Z', now stands in the path of Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates. Can the Straw Hats defeat 'Z'; and his crew, or will the New World meet its end at the hands of this mad man?
I’m not a huge One Piece viewer. I’ve read some of the manga (it’s not like you can breeze through it) and I’ve watched some of the DVD’s. I like it whenever it’s on but I’m not a rabid fan. So when I heard about Film Z, I wanted to watch it because stand alone films tend to be kinder to new viewers. That is true for the most part in Film Z, though there are a couple of characters I wasn’t familiar with in this but Eiichiro Oda’s tale has a way of draining you of your complaints.
