    Amazing testament to what the animation artfrom is. Some hate one aspect of this film but fail to see the bitter realisation held by the protagonist about his love interest. The story telling and visuals take you to another world. Beautiful is the only way to describe this film.

    With stunning animation, a fantastic score and a story that, despite a somewhat sluggish middle act, remains inspirational and full of passion, 'Wings of Honneamise' is a film that seems to be way ahead of its time in nearly every respect. With a 2hr running time, it is perhaps a little too long and for a thinking man's movie, I'm not sure it got its message across in the most concise way possible, but even with those shortcomings, it is still a mightily impressive work. And when you consider it was made in the 80's, doubly so.

    Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnêamise is a solid, yet disappointing film that has absolutely terrific, groundbreaking animation with an impressive attention to detail, a splendid sound design and score and the mix of science fiction and drama is very intriguing, but the characters needed better development, the second half is pretty dull and the film never achieved greatness in the storytelling department.

    Beautiful almost realistic animation, combined with a rich story about the prevailing human spirit

    Gotta love an anime movie about trying to get to space. The main voiced by the narrator of Bartender. It was a great one.

    Pretentious film with too big an ambition. It's so preachy it became pointless.

    A film that showcases the human spirit in it's most beautiful and ugly. With well written characters, the movie isn't afraid to ask questions about the morals of human ingenuity.

    Great animation for the time and the steam-punk themed world is pretty cool, it's just a shame that the story is a dreary, long-winded, directionless slog. There's being poetic, and then there is just being plain pretentious.
