Three kingdoms, a bunch of giant killer bugs, a deathly jungle - these are the setting for a tale of environmental degradation and the redeeming power of love. The mythic structure is fascinating to watch even though the facts are asserted a bit awkwardly in the development of the plot.

Not for me. I would think this animation was meant for 5 years and younger but the subject matter is that of war. So it is almost a conflict in itself between the targeted audience and the subject matter.

This movie is about WAR - the heroine is a cute anime princess but that doesn't stop it from being an over-the-top 2 hour bloodbath

Gorgeous movie. I was in awe of the story and the animation many times. I cannot believe how underrated this movie is compared to other ones Studio Ghibli has put out. I saw a lot of similarities between this movie and Princess Mononoke, but I truly liked this one even more!

This film is one of Studio Ghibli's earlier works, and remains one of my all-time favourite from this studio. Animation is top-notch, and the depiction of flight scenes very well done. I will watch it again down the road for sure.

Really interesting movie. A world well woven, the creatures are interesting, the landscapes are vivid, and the plot is complete. Recommend as a gentle foray into science fiction, for kids and adults alike.

Not as good as Castle in the Sky, but still good. A real thought provoker. Not recommended for young children, though.

Similar to Princess Mononoke, this film shows the conflict between the nature and humans. The nature displays its warnings to people for disrupting the circle of life, that human survival is linked to their relationship with the nature.

A masterpiece. One of Miyazaki's best.

A thousand years have passed since the collapse of industrialized civilization. A toxic jungle now spreads, threatening the survival of the last of the human race.
