Though it may amuse hardcore devotees of kaiju film on video, the film hardly threatens to make Murakami the next Julian Schnabel.
[The] story [is] barely original or interesting enough to sustain a half hour of kids' TV.
Whatever you might think of Mr. Murakami's paintings and sculptures, they are invariably polished and eerily perfect, but his movie seems thrown together.
Watching unmemorable child protagonists repeatedly fight and bond with each other and a bunch of F.R.I.E.N.D.s, tacky-looking Pokémon-esque monsters, is unproductively exhausting.
The creatures -- which range from a human-sized frog to a sprite with a big metal box for a head -- provide a worthy showcase for Murakami's prodigious visual imagination.
Unfortunately, a narrative feature film is more than just moving images, and once Murakami dives into narrative and character, Jellyfish Eyes begins stumbling all over itself
Whatever theories Murakami has perfected in his visual art, he's miscalculated in his feature-filmmaking dabble.
Japanese artist's fantasy film is disappointing, derivative.
The film is rich in the artist's creative imagery, but too thin in its storytelling to captivate a casual audience not already enamored with his work.
At once heavily pretentious and suffocatingly derivative.
Takashi Murakami has invested the film with the same sort of primal pop-art aesthetic that distinguishes much of his art.
