A bit of an Avatar

Classic Japanese animation film, maybe Miyazaki's finest film. Stunning animation mixed with a complex and subtle script makes this a must see for any animation fan, as enjoyable for adults as for the over 12's (maybe a little gruesome for younger ones). The story is about the conflict of industry with the ancient woods and Gods of Japan - but is never as simplistic as it would have been if it had been made by Disney. One to watch again and again, you will see something new every time.
Good but not as brilliant as expected

I did enjoy this but my expectations may have been a little high after the glorious praise that I had seen this getting elsewhere. Not a million miles away from Avatar in story and beautifully animated.

Even though I have not watched very much anime, I thought this movie was enjoyable enough. Many people who would be interested in this type of movie would find it very enjoyable.
Give it a chance

Give this movie a chance, and you won't be disappointed!. Very impressive animation a great story. Features an eco-friendly plot line that doesn't overstate it's case.

Did not get this myself. But this film was totally adored by my teenager who watched it at least 4 times.
