This movie pales in comparison to Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. It's medicore at best. It has great visuals and an interesting world but lots of things weren't given a concrete explanation. The last 30 minutes in particular was very confusing. I'd give it a 6/10.

Film that enhances the fantasy-like atmospheres to the maximum, and the magic exudes in every moment of the narration. The pace is never slow, always lively with even frantic moments, never seen before in a Ghibli film. The theme is that of war, and of the consequences that it brings to those who make it and those who suffer it. Not all the themes dear to the director Hayao Miyazaki, are gathered here, but those that are there are enough and are advancing to make them say that this creature of his was well born. Soundtrack that once again makes use of the sounds of Joe Hisaishi, so success is assured on this front. Very beautiful and opulent backgrounds and drawings of colors, not the best ever, when compared to other feature films by Studio Ghibli. The protagonists are perhaps the best ever seen, taken together, but taken individually, speaking of the female protagonist, she is on a par with the best protagonists so far encountered in the Ghiblian films.
