"Classic Ghibli!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Studio Ghibli is essentially Japan's Disney. Laputa is a cute childhood romance with some adventure and an ancient forgotten island-nation (not unlike Atlantis, except that it floats kilometers in the sky) thrown in.

Good ol' Ghibli :D

The Search For The Legendary Floating Castle…

Pazu, an engineer's ap­prentice finds a young girl, Sheeta floating down from the sky wearing a glowing pendant. Together they discover both are searching for the legendary floating castle Laputa and vow to unravel the mystery of the luminous crystal around her neck. Their quest won't be easy however. There are air pirates, secret agents and astounding obstacles to keep them from the truth – and from each other.

Laputa: Castle in the Sky Movie Reviews

“Castle in the Sky is a superb animated film, graced with good storyline, epic adventure, gripping action sequences, goofy humour… and speaking of which, let's not forget the pirates! In short, it's another classic Miyazaki fantastical tale which won't fail to impress” DVD Times

“I've no idea how one would go about comprising a top 10 of Hayao Miyazaki's best films and put them in order from 10–1 as they are all such magical, beautifully realised and enchanting films that they all just about deserved top marks. This is a testament to Miyazaki's quality as a filmmaker that he is yet to make a duff film and everything he makes is met with the highest expectations. In the case of Laputa: Castle in the Sky, it has such an ingenious concept and such well rounded characters that it's impossible to pick fault and describe it as anything other than a brilliant piece of filmmaking, whether animated or otherwise.” film365.co.uk

Laputa: Castle In The Sky is a well-made whimsical adventure and often beautiful film which will easily charm children and undergrown adults alike. Even when Miyazaki isn't on top form, he's a born entertainer.” 4 out of 5 stars eyeforfilm.co.uk
