The whole fight is pointless.
Naruto and Sasuke's conversation is just a rehash of VoTE with a couple extra lines about Itachi and the Uchiha clan thrown in.
The jutsus they choose to match up are also a rehash of VoTE, trying to relive their genin days and forgetting everything they've learnt since then(Though in Naruto's case there isn't much).
And their rivalry is as inconclusive as ever. Naruto's 'answer' is still the same as at VoTE. So much for character development.
