Variety
Odd blend of the truly cheesy with a few genuine f/x makes for a cutesy if not exactly thrilling spectacle. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Narrative coherence is perhaps not among the film's virtues, but its loopy, cluttered story is part of the fun. And a clearer, simpler plot might have required the sacrifice of some delightful grace notes and visual marvels, like the elastic-necked geisha or the one-eyed ambulatory umbrella. Full Review

TV Guide
Miike's goofy, gallant, action-packed fantasy deserves to become a classic family film. Full Review
Michael Atkinson
Village Voice
The film makes no more or less sense than Ridley Scott's Legend or Jim Henson's Labyrinth, and in fact has a creaky, blue-gel '80s-ness to it, but for many, keeping up with Miike's cranked output is an end in itself. Full Review
