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


Los Angeles Times by Gary Goldstein

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.


Time Out by Keith Uhlich

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.


Entertainment Weekly by Owen Gleiberman

He does an okay imitation of his father's languidly matter-of-fact dreamscapes, but it's hard to deny that a certain vitality is missing in Tales From Earthsea.
