Funny and delightful throughout, even with very serious themes bubbling underneath the surface.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

More action-packed and manga-style, but its predictable plot points (punch-ups and air-battles) are secondary to Miyazaki-esque scenes of women's work, the indifferent beauty of nature and war as nightmare.

Mr. Miyazaki smooshes fantasy and history into a pastel-pretty yarn as irresistible as his feminism.

Antagony & Ecstasy

That a pretty great adventure movie can rest comfortably alongside a strange tale of identity and morality... is proof enough that we're in the hands of a master storyteller

Animator/fabulist Hayao Miyazaki pays homage to Hollywood's wartime adventure films in this masterwork built around the adventures of a high-flying pig.

Eye for Film

Combining exquisite animation, (slyly subverted) Boys' Own action, and (barely concealed) adult themes, Porco Rosso goes the whole hog, offering anti-war escapades that will appeal to all ages.

It's a film Miyazaki made for himself, to indulge his passion for seaplanes, and this personal enthusiasm comes through clearly.

He does things his way, and he makes no apologies for having a snout. In fact, he's kind of smug about it.

It resembles in its best moments a fanciful version of Casablanca with a porcine Bogey in the lead.
