It's glorious, gorgeous, and more than a little profound.

To watch Wolfwalkers is to dive into visual splendor.

Wolfwalkers does its world-building through emotional voice-work, through lush, hand-drawn animation, and through visual style for days.

There's an ecological parable going on here, no doubt. Girl power is a running theme as well. But I was most knocked out by "Wolfwalkers' " metaphors for the long, sad colonization.

"Wolfwalkers" lyrically sets up a man vs. nature battle, told in grand Irish storytelling that honors and respects its origins while spinning a damn good tale.

The film is terrific fare for kids. But the underpinnings of its fantastical story lie in tortured Irish history... Adults will be eager to see where it's all going to go.

Wolfwalkers deserves a new level of praise for the way it takes previous Cartoon Saloon themes (such as the porous relationship between man and nature) to new heights of artistry.

The pleasures these animators bring us hark back to plucky classics of the form... and the primitivism of the aesthetic pays charming dividends all the way through.

It is the type of stirring entertainment that delivers both the thrill of the moment and the kind of sophisticated ideas that can lead to discussion and even debate long after viewing.

It would be worth watching even if it were just for its beauty, but the story is very interesting.

Wolfwalkers casts a spell that will linger for a long, long time.

So many strands, and when the full tapestry is unfurled, its captivating, beautiful, thrilling, and entrancing patterns are revealed. Wolfwalkers stands proud as a new classic.

The flattened backgrounds hark back to Disney's 1959 "Sleeping Beauty." There's a slightly rough, hand-drawn quality to the work throughout, and the colors are bold and vibrant.

[T]here's nothing quite as transporting-and sometimes transformative-as a work of animation that devotes itself to shaking up your reality.

Watch it again (and again) just to revel in the staggering artistry of the animation and the joyous, unruly energy.

Cinema that can be life-affirming...funny, smart and a big warm hug of a movie...

This is a charming and thoroughly likable film.

The storyline's edges are frayed just enough to give it the gentle distance of a tale recalled though the gauze of myth and memory.

A treat. With astonishing craft and visual storytelling that howls from the screen, Cartoon Saloon have surely secured their place in the animation hall of fame.

It's beautifully realised, with visual influences from graphic novels and the landscapes of Jack Butler Yeats, and the screenplay is as sophisticated and emotionally satisfying as any Pixar classic.
