James' Review of Ponyo

6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Ponyo is a film from the greatly accalimed Hayao Miyazaki who directed Spirited Away. I did watch this with the intentions that this film is aimed at very young audiences, but Ponyo is still cute and beautifully entertaining with stunning animation and an interesting concept for the story that is similar to that of The Little Mermaid. It was just a fun film that left me with a happy smile on my face throughout the duration. It's unlike any other film I've ever seen in which it was so different and fascinating at the same, but I believe this is a positive factor to this masterpiece of Miyazaki's fine work. Though it ended so abruptly and that I wish it was longer, I still loved it. After viewing this, I'm interested in viewing more of Miyazaki's film masterpieces. Ponyo is fun entertainment that can be enjoyed by kids and the older alike!
