Boruto Uzumaki is the son of Naruto Uzumaki, the Seventh Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. Having heard stories of Naruto's deeds as a hero, Boruto wishes to surpass his father. Following Sarada Uchiha, Boruto meets his father's friend, Sasuke Uchiha, and requests to be trained by him.

Take a look at the movie trailer below:-

The movie revolves around Naruto's son, Boruto which is somehow also a kid who wanted to be a Hokage just like when Naruto was young but he actually intended to surpass him. The era in the movie seems to be quite modern with the access of computers and video games but things like cars still not made available for the non shinobi in the village. Boruto easily became Sasuke's prodigy and this somehow showed me that his heart has already soften (he was the coldest one back then). Probably due to the incident happened in the Naruto Gaiden series which involved his daughter, Sarada. Well, Naruto became colder towards his family and kind of awkward as a father role. Anyway, it does bring back some nostalgic memories from the chunin exams.

Conclusion: For Naruto fans, this is a must watch movie and not to be missed. You probably need to be finish reading Naruto Gaiden in order to know most the characters in this movie cause all of them has already grown up since the finale of Naruto Shippuden. The movie is one of the best Naruto movie as it has the right sentimental scenes and cool actions from the beginning until the very end. Most recommended!
