From Mamoru Oshii, the world-acclaimed director of Ghost in the Shell, comes an award-winning story of an exciting but endless war with heroes too young to understand the meaning of their battles.
A group of eternally young fighter pilots known as Kildren experience the sudden loss of innocence as they battle the enemy in astonishing dogfights above the clouds. With his only childhood memory consisting of intense flight training, the fearless teenage pilot Yuichi's dogfights coexist with his struggle to find his missing past. When his beautiful, young female commander Suito is reluctant to discuss the fate of the pilot that Yuichi is replacing -- or the strangely perfect condition of that pilot's former aircraft -- Yuichi's curiosity becomes heightened.

The parts that involved the flying was great but the parts on the ground were draggy and played out too long, hence the final ho-hum I felt. I liked this but I much preferred "Last Exile" and "Yukikaze" both had the angst but were less drawn out. So, if you like a slow pace type show with some flight action then this is for you. If you prefer something more exciting and on the edge of your seat then I'd tell you to pass it by.
Gets a 3 stars out of 5 from me. Those three were for the interesting idea behind the characters, some neat plane designs, and some nice air action but loses two stars because the story just took a bit too long at times.
Guide: No swearing or nudity. Implied sex.

It was a slow moving film. More talking then action. So don't expect an action movie. I just couldn't really understand what the movie was about. Read morePublished on Aug. 15 2009 by Amazon Customer
