  1. Michael Diers's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Recht gute Animationen bei der Performance von Luftkampfszenen stehen hier einer recht pomadig erzählten Rahmenhandlung gegenüber. Ein Spannungsbogen entsteht zu keiner Zeit.

  2. Galou's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Il y a une idée, il y a cette petite chose qui fait que cela aurait pu être un excellent film, des enfants obligés de se battre qui ne grandissent pas. Mais non, Oshii s'empêtre dans cette lassitude des personnages, dans cette histoire mal racontée. Il est dommage qu'il faille lire le pitch pour bien démarrer le film. A vouloir jouer le jeu du twist il nous manque des clés pour savourer le plat. dommage.

  3. Ludovic72's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    On connaît les obsessions de Mamoru Oshii : la technologie, le brouillage des frontières entre l'homme et la machine (et ses implications philosophiques), une mélancolie rétro-futuriste... Tout est bien au rendez-vous, avec une lenteur de rythme et une torpeur répétitive qui collent au sujet. Mais en diluant les informations à l'extrême, Oshii finit par lasser. Petite déception par rapport à ses œuvres précédentes !

  4. Superfrog's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    some good bits, more bad bits, all pretty disappointingly tied together

  5. Garcia Marcos's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Je ne suis pas certain de ce qui vient de se passer; soit ce film est d'un profond ennui ou bien mon manque de sommeil m'a empêché d'en saisir la subtilité. A voir jusqu'au bout cependant.

  6. Francesco Tonelli's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    This is how you recognize a great masterpiece: it reduces you to zero.

  7. Gianpiero Mendini [cineddoche]'s rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Il cinema di Oshii Mamoru è riconoscibile fin dalle prime inquadrature. Un cielo nuvoloso. Un coro giapponese come sottofondo musicale. Un cane che scodinzola. E quell’atmosfera sospesa, irrisolta, apparentemente vuota ma intrisa di profonde inquietudini e domande esistenziali. Non è (forse) al livello di Ghost in the Shell ma ci si avvicina molto. Capolavoro da recuperare.

  8. mikong's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Easily one of my favorite anime films out there. Oshii is too wise now to merely exploit action thus the gravity of how silent scenes dig into the internal conflict of characters and to others, and the magnificent aerial scenes as the heightened pressure of the film.

  9. Alessandra Piero's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Ein sehr schöner Film. Die Aufnahmen waren wirklich beeindruckend. Die Handlung ist ziemlich öde. Dennoch...

  10. Ms Jones's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Puts a diffrent connotation to child soldiers. Unfortunately the eyes ruin a lot. Also i had the feeling the graphic designers had a lot more fun designing machines than creatures. Apart the dystopic storysetting gives room for tides.

  11. Kathe Colomba's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    wonderful! very sensitive and impressive. Oshii-san is a genious!

  12. Arin Karlina's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    BASICALLY ~ its a gloomy tragic love story

  13. Sebastian-Jr.'s rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

  14. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    Boring doesn't even begin to describe this snoozefest. Mr Oshii, please get a clue of what cinema is suppose to be.

  15. Tyler Aikens's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    I thought it was awful, especially for Oshii. It's melodramatic as all hell and the animation is inconsistent to the point of annoyance.

  16. Bambang N Karim's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    This beautiful Japan anime film revolves around the familiar premise: War, what is a good for." And it becomes such a bleak evidence when the players in the war is a bunch of underage kids who has to act like an adult, and were sent to fight and kill people. Yuici, the protagonist once said "what is the point for being mature, when there is no hope of what life might take us tomorrow."

  17. nofatclips's rating of the film The Sky Crawlers

    "You always have the option to change the road you travel every day, even if the road is the same you can see different things. Isn’t this enough to live? Or rather, may not be enough?"
