4.0 out of 5 stars Having seen the film I now want to play the games, 18 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Professor Layton And The Eternal Diva [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've never played the Professor Layton games so I watched the film from a completely fresh perspective, without any pre-dispositions. And I actually rather enjoyed it.

I am a big fan of anime and particuarly studio ghibli films, and while Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva features some of the eccentricities of Hayao Miyazaki and co., it also offers its own unique charm. I found myself wanting to play the games and delve deeper into his world. The story is certainly engaging and deals with some challenging topics - like mysticism and death - so may not be suitable for kids. But don't let that put you off because there are plenty of laughs to be had as well.

Some might be disappointed by the lack of character development, but the characters are suitably engaging and colourful to keep you interested. As is the voice acting which is for the most part spot on. The animation is cartoonish and doesn't feature the richness or grand design of other anime films, but the backgrounds and landscapes are nevertheless beautifully done.

Professor Layton's first foray onto the big screen might not reach the heights of its kin but offers a great family romp with plenty of puzzles to keep your mind warmed up on these cold nights.
