Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An action-packed buddy movie that strategically combines several of Japanese fans' favorite ingredients: conflicted teens, supernatural creatures and epic battles.
Fresh: "The Boy and the Beast" confirms Mamoru Hosoda's reputation as one of the most interesting writer-directors working in Japanese animation.
Fresh: A raucously entertaining if slightly overlong romp which borrows liberally from existing sources but has more than enough character and brio to stand foursquare on its own two hairy feet.
Fresh: A mish-mash that seems original.
Excellent Movie -- Bad Version
The movie is excllent but one cannot turn off the English captioning (which isn't even the captioning for the dubbing!)
Not what I thought it would be in the best way.
I did not know what I was expecting. I thought I was going to get a knock-off of a classic fairy tale, but was instead treated to an emotional experience with a creative setting and likable characters. If you are the kind of person who enjoys the journey a movie will take you on even if it can be predictable, this is the flick for you.
Be aware that you will likely need a box of tissues handy as well however, as this movie does have high probability of making you cry.
There is permanant dub captioning that you cant remove and its incorrect as well
