Basic and Generic,
This review is from: Legend of the Millennium Dragon [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)Saw this a few months ago in the Barbican Cinema and to be honest felt it was somewhat mediocre.
The film revolves around the human v spirit/nature conflict that is done in a fairly standard way i.e. very predictable and lacking in any real surprises.
The characters are very superficial and have very little back story or history.
The animations not bad but nor great either.
All in all i wouldn't want to watch tis again not when there are still Studio Ghibli films around.
If you are interested don't expect too much.
If you want something similar but much much better try the below.
Origin Spirits Of The Past - The Movie [Blu-ray]

Origin was an even more mediocre film.... for a fan of Ghibli I'm surprised you like that movie atall.... I mean its just a pale attempt at recreating the feeling of the film Naussica. I prefered Millennium Dragon by a long shot. In all honesty though... after seeing Sword of the Stranger, most action anime films just look half assed, I'm not sure anything will beat that for quite some time. ^__^
