Viewed from a purely narrative perspective, Castle in the Sky is a fun, engaging two hours. Miyazaki knows how to keep things moving without belaboring certain scenes. He doesn’t speak down to his audience and isn’t afraid to mix in exposition with action.
Miyazaki’s concerns with the fragility and wonder of our less tangible surroundings haunt the picture without overpowering it.
