A good start for the son of Hayao, the film is nicely drawn and it's certainly entertaining enough. The problem lays with the story, it doesn't make sense. It tends to go off subject and becomes a dull, 'seen it before' fantasy based uponA good start for the son of Hayao, the film is nicely drawn and it's certainly entertaining enough. The problem lays with the story, it doesn't make sense. It tends to go off subject and becomes a dull, 'seen it before' fantasy based upon dragons. I did love the song that was written for the film, the song "Teru No Uta" is beautifully made and sang. Overall, it's not everyone 's cup of tea and it's wasn't my favourite Studio Ghibli film.

I don't understand why some people think this is the worst Ghibli movie. It's just amazing!
I certainly didn't failed to entertain me.
I think Hayao's son has a great future ahead in animation.

It is exciting and interesting and stunning to look at. Its not a faithful adaptation nor is it a Hayao M. Masterpiece. But it is great on its own merits. Enjoy it without critique. Expand

Taken on its own merits the film is outstanding. People seem dissapointed that he is not his father, this is ridiculous. But like his father's work, the more I viewed the film, the better I liked it. I look forward to his future. TimothyTaken on its own merits the film is outstanding. People seem dissapointed that he is not his father, this is ridiculous.

its not the kind of Hayao Miyazaki, but its very entertaining and it inspires us from the book by Ursula K. LeGuin. the animation was beautiful, the characters were perfect, and the cinematography was great.

Everyone Panned This Movie..
It Does Not Need To Get All The Harsh Reviews.. A Great Debut For Goro...
I Really Enjoyed 70% Of The Movie.. I Do Not Like The Action Is This Movie.. If It Was A Warmer Movie This Would Be A Amazing Movie!

I have never been more shocked at both the user and critic reviews on metacritic. Without going into all the reasons I love this movie, I love this movie.

Contos de Terramar não ruim só mal compreendido. Acho que esse um dos motivos por boa parte não ter gostado gerando uma mal visão sobre uma boa obra.

how the hell does this film have such a bad reputation I really liked it and i would really like to see Goro Miyazaki make another film I even would like to see a sequel I've heard there are more stories in the books they're based on so it'show the hell does this film have such a bad reputation I really liked it and i would really like to see Goro Miyazaki make another film I even would like to see a sequel I've heard there are more stories in the books they're based on so it's possible. I really like the characters particularly Sparrowhalk played expertly by Timothy Dolton and Art design and animation are both excellent as usual particularly on the set designs, this world feels big .i do agree this film needed a little more polish to make it really great but i think it's good enough to stand along side the other ghibli films Expand
