The technically proficient The Sky Crawlers is nice to look at and listen to...but by relying on zombified blank-slate characters, Oshii makes a point at the expense of engagement, much less entertainment. [Blu-ray]

The movie was quite engaging to me, and it pulled me in immediately and kept my interest level high all the way through the end.
Perhaps quiet, emotional movies in which the action scenes truly serve the script, rather than throwing out CGI action as almost irrelevant set pieces (as American movies tend to do) is not something this reviewer enjoys.
I wish I had seen this earlier, as it has become one of my favorites.
