Boston Globe
Its breadth, profundity, and stunningly rendered vision make idealism seem renewed and breathtaking again.

Salon
A big movie for the ages, full to the brim with sympathy, imagination and sheer visual delight.

Chicago Tribune
Rarely does any film, animated or otherwise, immerse you in such a vivid landscape and engage your senses so strongly.

TNT RoughCut
Like a lot of anime, it's overlong and gets way too metaphysical at the end, but ultimately, this is a Princess worth worshipping.
80
Variety
Exceedingly imaginative, beautifully realized animated epic adventure.

Chicago Reader
The film's storytelling and heartfelt pantheism are both impressive.

USA Today
A must-see for animation fans.

Slate
It's Miyazaki's use of sound--and silence--that takes your breath away
50
Washington Post
As spectacular as it is dense and as dense as it is colorful and as colorful as it is meaningless and as meaningless as it is long.
