Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Who conceived this ponderous, quasi-evangelical hokum, anyway? – Andy Webster, New York Times, Nov 22, 2012

Rotten: "The Mystical Laws" works neither as a straightforward sci-fi anime nor as a recruitment and advancement tool for the beliefs of Happy Science. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Oct 19, 2012

Rotten: Religious mumbo-jumbo, turgid storytelling and lackluster animation drag down this anime fantasy. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Nov 29, 2012

Rotten: The Mystical Laws is an (un)holy mess, a religious tract masquerading as a paint-by-numbers hero's journey. – Sherilyn Connelly, Village Voice, Nov 20, 2012

What a waste!!!

Good plot, Great animation, But has what is possibly the worst English dub ever recorded.
This could of been a really great movie were it not for the terrible voice acting.

Don't waste your time.

This movie is long winded and religious propaganda poorly conceived and implemented.
