When Kyuuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.
The Boy and the Beast is a quite interesting movie. Honestly, I'm not really a fan of Hosoda, but this one was way better than the Wolf Children. The story's about a young boy named Ren who meets a beast when he was lost. The beast takes the little boy as his disciple. The beginning is very classic, with an important "Miyazaki-touch". But if the plot is great in the first half of the movie, the second part is very incoherent, with big errors in the story telling. Of course, the romance was very dispensable, and the end reminds me a bad horror movie. After a refreshing beginning, it's a shame! However, the couple of main characters is really good. There is some good alchemy between the boy and the beast. But so much vulgarity! I don't think this was so important, and if it can be funny during a few minutes, it's finally annoying. I have to deal with some graphical stuff. But it was a deception. I can't bear that flat style, with no personality. And the constant use of CG is a pity. The end is just horrible to watch. All this CG is just not acceptable with that poor render. Fortunately, the character design was really efficient. But I enjoyed especially the music. Its use was just perfect, and a few scenes were really epic with that music. The sound design however was a little cheap, with disproportionate sounds. Finally, I think The Boy and the Beast is not a bad movie, but the director is not subtle at all. I hate when the characters say to the spectator how he have to watch the movie. A good movie doesn't need any manual, and have to keep a part of mystery. And here, the movie is so obvious that we don't need these dialogs. It's really a shame, and I was really annoying. I had the feeling that the director spoke to some children, and was forgetting all the other fans of animation. So, that's a 7.2 for me, but I think I'm too generous. This movie wasn't that bad, but to much imperfections to be considered as a masterpiece.
This movie truley blew away my expectations. After a Youtuber (Cellspex) recomended it I wasn't super thrilled to watch it. I had nothing better to do and the movie sounded like it would be about a 6/10. When I started watching I was brought exactly what I had expected. The beggining is slow but it only lasts for about ten minutes. After that I got a truley good movie that had me hooked for the entire time. This movie seemed to be for a male audience, but I showed this movie to my mom and she loved it. The characters are lovable and I'm sure you'll be routing for them the whole movie. The interations between Kyuta and Kumatetsu are extremely well done. This movie didn't have my favorite story ever but the characters certainly made up for that. Not only does this movie have amazing characters but also beautiful animation. This is second best looking film I've ever seen. Its only beat by the Tail of Primcess Kaguya's fantastic hand drawn art.
Let me just say there's no doubt that after watching this movie I 100% know that this movie has become my favorite animated movie of all time. Everything about this movie is perfect and I mean everything. I love this movie so much because the plot is so meaningful & I can actually relate on a spiritual level to both of the main characters. the meaning of this story is just amazing like I truly understand this movie very well just because I can honestly relate to kyutta. Most importantly the characters are what make this such an amazing movie, Kyuta and kumatetsu made me smile, cry, and laugh throughout the whole entire movie. This movie in my opinion also has one of the best character developments for any animated movie,both of the main characters change drastically & I love it because you can honestly see that they develop in a good way based off of eachother. Everyone needs to watch this, also the animation is very very beautiful and I just know that's one of the many reasing why people won't forget about this movie. Overall this movie beats any other animated movie out there I highly recommend to anyone and I know you'll cry of happiness. I wish I could watch this movie for the first time over and over again (I'll still watch it repeatedly and most definately but it on dvd). I wish Kamatetsu was a sword in my heart.
