The aerial action has been carefully crafted for excitement and offer impressive scenes of skylines full of fighter planes: the mix of CGI and 2D animation give depth and a gloss that would make Michael Bay proud.

If you're unfamiliar with the delights of anime, I wouldn't start with this one. But fans will adore it.

If at times too opaque for its own good, The Sky Crawlers is nonetheless a dark, engagingly surreal thought-provoker animated with Oshii's customary grace and flair.

The Sky Crawlers is Oshii's finest film since 2001's underrated Avalon and his best animé since the original Ghost in the Shell.

how could a movie about the amazing sky-high acrobatics of aerial dog-fighting teenagers end up being so boring

... a surreal, hypnotic quality broken only by the dynamic scenes of battle...

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 gun never goes off, but the possibility (the precipice) remains.
