From famed Japanese animators Studio Ghibli comes "Tales from Earthsea," a sweeping adventure set in a mythical world filled with magic and bewitchment. An epic tale of redemption and self-discovery, the story follows the journey of Lord Archmage Sparrowhawk (voice of Timothy Dalton), the master wizard, as he searches for the force behind a mysterious disturbance that has caused an imbalance in the land of Earthsea-suddenly crops and livestock are dwindling, dragons have reappeared and humanity

The themes and memorable imagery in Earthsea will be familiar to fans of Studio Ghibli, but the storytelling and animation are a step behind.
There's a whole lot going on in the Japanese anime fantasy Tales From Earthsea, so why is it such a bore?
Abstruse and confusing, Tales from Earthsea's story grows increasingly blurry the closer it gets to what should be a deeply satisfying conclusion.
An overly stoic, pretentious, boring, unimaginative trainwreck that just happens to have been made by some of the greatest animators in the history of Japanese anime.
A passable piece from the junior Miyazaki, and one only hopes the reservation in voice felt here will be far more loosened in future projects.
...an ill-conceived story for Western audiences who will blanch at its bizarre embrace of patricide that its young protagonist commits before escaping on a journey of guided self-discovery.
It's interesting that Tales From Earthsea was originally released in 2006... especially since it seems like in four years, someone could have found a way to make it more interesting.
As dark as The Last Unicorn or The Dark Crystal, though a shade less lyrical.
A wizard and his apprentice battle an evil necromancer who is searching for immortality in this animated adventure drawn from the writings of Ursula K. Le Guin.
I came in to Tales from Earthsea hoping to be wowed, and came out half-asleep.
It's a long way from 'worst' anything, but the movie otherwise lives down to its not-so-great expectations.
I'm sure it will entertain undiscriminating young viewers and will probably thrill anime lovers. It left me bored and impatient.
