5.0 out of 5 stars finally an anime set in ancient japan... plenty of gore too!, 20 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Princess Mononoke [DVD] (DVD)
As many of the other Ghibli movies this one maintains environmentalist views and the struggle between man and nature. It is quite a serious movie and its themes are a little mature for kids, with plenty of violence, the loss of limbs and realistic blood.

However the violence gives it an edge of realism and the great forest spirits in this movie are very interesting and quite cool. The relationships between the characters are believable and the story is no less than excellent.

Strangly this movie is one of the only ones i ever feel like coming back to. It gets better after every viewing, its animation is amazing for the time it was made and its just one of those films you have to see, whether a fan of anime or not.

I wish you could have found something better to headline your review with than "plenty of gore too!". That's not what Miyazaki is all about. The violence was essential to the storyline, certainly, but if you watch more of his films, you'll see that gore is not something Miyazaki specialises in.

I've seen the majority of his films, and this one is pretty gory- no changing that. Besides, watching and reviewing a movie is about your view, not only the director's intentions.
