A disappointment to fans of LeGuin's lovely Earthsea books.

The set pieces make this well worth watching while director Goro Miyazaki shows he's truly his father's son. Full Review

Boxoffice Magazine
An odd little film that aims only to please itself. Full Review

It also features deaths by strangulation and immolation as well as a nasty bit with a flying severed limb.Kids may be less put off by all that, though, than by the film's uninspired hand-drawn animation, visual flatness and elongated running time. Full Review

Time Out New York
The sights and sounds are splendid--a lovingly hand-detailed portside city, a touching musical interlude in a windswept field--though they're largely disconnected from the narrative proper. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
An artistically arresting yet narratively lame and strangely unfocused cartoon aimed at older children and young adults. Full Review
