Very beautiful, nice story

A fantastical tale regarding the creation of an actual document from history. The patterns and colors come alive in an eye-catching way and the characters are straight-forward yet charming. The wonderful usage of Celtic music wraps this up as a brief, fun segue into what is "Irish".

A refreshingly new animation style for me, as the story blends Celtic and Irish mythology and history together in a great adventure. Also the element of the faith resounds with me personally.

'Secret of Kells' is a beautiful amalgamation of Irish myth and 2D animation.

There is so much to like here but the narrative feels a little undeveloped and the last fifteen minutes feels rushed and unsatisfying... It's definitely worth a watch though if only for the stunning animation.

The animation is gorgeous and unique. The characters are interesting. The story though didn't get to me as much as I thought it would and the pace was a bit slow by times. Overall though, I was amazed by the quality of the artwork/images in this movie.

I found this a little boring. I wasn't sure exactly what was at stake in the story, and while I deeply appreciate the film's technical achievements, loading so much expectation onto the big "reveal" at the end was bound to disappoint.

It's as cute as Diego, my boyfriend!

A true masterpiece, magnificent and not meant to be just seen but to behold. Every child should see this beautiful movie and have it to cherish and pass on to his children. I know I will.

My friend's kids wanted this movie off nine minutes in. If you can make it to the forest scene you should be good to go on a nice little adventure with simplistic animation. Be warned: This movie should be PG.... It's too violent to be G and kids may not be prepared for some of the themes.

"The Secret of Kells" la primera obra maestra de Tomm Moore es un bello relato lleno de mitología y magia cuyos personajes plasman con gran encanto y sentimiento. Una maravilla visual para todo amante de la animación.

A rather bizarre, but nevertheless interesting and enjoyable experience.

Beautifully Animated Irish legend it's completely enthralling when you come across it; you can't look away. Doesn't oversell it either where many animated films can force a dramatic theme this is subtle and reverent. A striking backdrop is only added to by the great musical accompaniment.

Lovely and lyrical and poetic, but not fully engaging

Good story. I like the animation style it is very similar feel/look as song of the sea. I think this is a great film for families.

Beautifully animated movie. Doesn't hurt that it's Irish & the main character is named Brendan. Loved it.
