Based primarily on the first game in the series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, the film focuses on rookie defense attorney Ryūichi Naruhodō, as he strives to protect his clients in various murder trials, including the death of his mentor, Chihiro Ayasato, and the accusation of rival prosecutor, Reiji Mitsurugi. Ryūichi's greatest ally is Chihiro's younger sister Mayoi, a spirit medium whose body is posessed by Chihiro to communicate with him. The film will be a courtroom drama combined with the video game series' signature style. Sci-fi elements are also used such as characters bringing up holographic images of evidence during trials.

This movie is a great one; the effects are pretty well done, the acting's good and they did a very good job at remodeling the characters (but what the heck happened with Redd White???)
I enjoyed watching it a lot and you don't have to watch the anime/play the games first.

If you've played the game, this is amazingly identical to it. Worth watching.
