Spirited Away

Mar 13, 2013

Story

Excellent, very character driven. As in most Ghibli films it is how the characters react to the situations that surround them that is the real driving force here. That is not to say the story is bad or boring. It is a fantastical adventure.  

 

Animation

Usual Ghibli class. Everything is done with such detail that it very quickly stops being animated, in your head at least.

 

Sound

The music is excellent and very in keeping, this is to be expected as the music in almost all of the Ghibli films is borderline perfection. The vocal performances are very strong and increase the bond with the characters

Characters

Excellent, all very approachable. They are all larger than life and suck you into the world of 'Spirited Away' very quickly. They all add their own little bit to the overall entertainment factor.

 

Overall

One of the best. There are some unanswered questions but it is truly one of the better Ghibl films, and up there with the rest of film as well.

8/10 story
9/10 animation
9/10 sound
8/10 characters
8.5/10 overall
