Critic Reviews for Castle in the Sky
Castle in the Sky is a good enough film to benefit from multiple viewings. And, for anyone unfamiliar with Miyazaki's canon, it provides a great introduction to a wonderfully rich animated catalog.
Liable to strain the patience of adults and the attention spans of children.
[S]ometimes a fun adventure in a unique, thrilling environment is all you need.
Audience Reviews for Castle in the Sky
Miyazaki is a versatile artist who can make just as many thought-provoking stories as lighter ones. This one ranks among the latter, a very delightful animation that has its share of sillier moments but makes up for them with a lot of fun and adventure.
The best action-oriented Miyazaki film and the first to be produced under the legendary Studio Ghibli. The animation is incredibly-detailed and the action is some of the most exhilarating ever put into an animated feature. The steampunk world the character's occupy is incredibly imaginative and fascinating. Combined with a great story along with fun characters, and this delightful treat for all ages is easily one of Miyazaki's best efforts.
"Castle in the Sky" is considered to be the first ever film released from this filmmaker (Hayao Miyazaki) and to be perfectly honest, it's a sheer masterpiece in storytelling and in it's visuals. There were portions that actually made me tear up, just listening to the music along with the scenery, which was brilliant beyond belief. The American voice acting fits very well into the Dubbed version and the overall atmosphere is just so loveable. Many films have definitely been influenced by this, and I would be shocked if they denied that, because the filmmaking (mostly in post) is breathtaking. I have absolutely no complaints about this film whatsoever. It is funny, well written, well directed, and beautifully animated. With no flaws in sight, this film is incredible!
