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.

I came in to Tales from Earthsea hoping to be wowed, and came out half-asleep.

A workmanlike, humorless cartoon.

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.

The worst project ever put out by Ghibli... a sometimes clumsy and hectic sword 'n sorcery adventure, not a bad one, but nor a particularly memorable one.

...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 a long way from 'worst' anything, but the movie otherwise lives down to its not-so-great expectations.

Don't expect a family-business masterpiece

It begins all at sea, and, figuratively speaking, pretty much stays there.

Trazendo diálogos ridículos em sua obviedade, sofre ainda com a falta de ritmo imposta pela inexperiência de seu diretor, só escapando do desastre absoluto graças ao esforço técnico de sua brava (e aqui desperdiçada) equipe.

Earthsea seems to be a stupendously dull place. It would try the patience of any kid.

If this starchy, nearly two-hour allegory about human hubris bluntly addresses a historical moment when global warming threatens the planet and pollution is fouling the seas, its chilly, formal tone keeps you at an emotional distance.

There's a whole lot going on in the Japanese anime fantasy Tales From Earthsea, so why is it such a bore?

Like watching the back-story of Harry Potter's shy Japanese cousin.

The themes and memorable imagery in Earthsea will be familiar to fans of Studio Ghibli, but the storytelling and animation are a step behind.

Watching the film was at times like watching paint dry, beautiful, meticulously realized paint to be sure but still nothing more then drying paint all the same.

Something of a disappointment, given Studio Ghibli's track record, although Le Guin fans can probably go ahead and add an extra star.

Fantasy flick fails to engage.
