Review by Sean on 4th June, 2013
 
5 stars "Magical"

Everything about this movie screams children's movie, but I am a 19 year old male, and I loved it from start to finish.

A story about a fish falling in love with a little boy and wanting to become human, you could say it's very Japanese, which is definitely a good thing here. I much prefer the original Japanese dialogue, but the English dub is voiced by some very big names and is still great, especially for the kids.

Everything from the fantastic musical score and the bright colours (which looks amazing on bluray) can all be summed up as ‘joyful heartfelt adventure’.

Studio Ghibli has once again produced an amazing anime.
This movie could be for any ages, the animations are brilliantly done and the english voice actors are superb.
This truly is an amazing movie which everyone needs to watch!

Ponyo Movie Reviews

“There is a word to describe “Ponyo,” and that word is magical. This poetic, visually breathtaking work by the greatest of all animators has such deep charm that adults and children will both be touched. It’s wonderful and never even seems to try: It unfolds fantastically…Mi­yazaki is the Japanese creator of “My Neighbor Totoro,” “Spirited Away,” “Howl’s Moving Castle” and many other beloved films. Already I have heard from a few people who don’t want to see it “because it’s Japanese.” This is solid-gold ignorance. “Is it only dubbed?” I was asked. You dummy! All animated films are dubbed! Little Nemo can’t really speak!..There are so few movies that can delight both a small child and the adult in the next seat. Here is one of them.” Roger Ebert

“This is a marvel to behold, a valuable opportunity to watch a master craftsman doing what his does best. It is like listening to a great children's sto­ryteller: the story may be intended for the young ones, but it is a delight to witness the love and care that the storyteller puts into their tale.” DVD Verdict

“Outside of Disney/Pixar magic, you may wonder why critics consider animation an art. Wonder no more. Just see Ponyo, from Japanese animé genius Hayao Miyazaki. Ponyo falls a sliver short of the maestro's landmarks (Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away), but the delicate colors and hand-drawn, proudly 2-D images are breathtaking…Mi­yazaki works marvels. Sit back and behold.” Rolling Stone

“…utterly enchanting watch that has an environmental message if you want to see it, but it doesn't ram it your throat, a smart message about the importance of family and added responsibility of growing up. Some films lose something on repeated viewings whereas the very best improve the more times you watch them and this is the case with Ponyo. Although I thought it was excellent at the cinema, I thought it was even better the second (and third) time around. It is a visually dazzling film that just shows that there is life in cell animation and films don't have to be digitally animated or converted to 3-D to be an utterly engrossing experience.” Film365.co.uk
