I really love this movie. It’s got a beautiful vintage sci-fi look and a wonderful message. I could see how this may be a bit dull for younger children, but it wonderful for older animation fans. I highly recommend it.
I'm a fan of the newer Ghibli work, so I was taking a chance on Nausicaä and I'm glad I did. It's definitely slow, but the pace picks up quickly and has an ending I enjoyed. The characters are likeable, the swordmaster and commander being my two favorite. The story is very prescient of today's environmental woes, which was cool. Now on to more older Ghibli films!
The film is good-hearted, energetic, and full of Ghibli's characteristically beautiful hand-rendered animation, but it's also lightweight and hyper, with none of Miyazaki's more resonant themes.
Dreamlike Ghibli animation that's well worth seeking out.
