- An Amazon.ca Best of 2005 selection.
Everything is so awesome; the soundtrack, the voicework, the story, the action scenes, the art work, and every thing else is so perfect, and well done too. Everything has been refined to the state-of-the-art level, which is what Studio Ghibli has been famous for. What's more, the message for peace, perseverance and prosperity, along with harmony and enviornmental protection and balance, have really touched deeply in my heart right from the start.
Overall, I'd like to say "Doomo Arigato Gozaimasu" to the great Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli for their great masterpiece, and shall give them 5 out of 5 stars for outstanding performance!
The first time I watched this, it was subtitled in English. The dubbing of this movie is well done, like all the others brought over by Disney. Patrick Stewart is one of the English voice actors, so it's a real treat.
Of course, if you're not sure about it, rent it. It shouldn't be that difficult to find.
