The first of Miyazaki's films to gain mainstream attention in the West, Princess Mononoke depicts the clash between the natural world and it's old gods, and the rise of humans and the beginnings of modern civilisation. It shows three elements of the Japanese psyche warring for supremacy in an epic ecological fable of stirring mythic power. Featuring an English-language script by Neil Gaiman, author of Anansi Boys and American Gods, and vocal performances from Claire Danes, Minnie Driver, Billy Crudup and Gillian Anderson, Princess Mononoke is a must-see, epic animated adventure.

This movie is superb. From the japanese director who created spirited away, its about a girl fighting to keep the old traditions alive , she meets up with a boy poisoned and looking for a potion to heal himself. David Cameron must have found some inspiration here when he created Avator.. if you like animation, a must have
Really one of the greatest animated movies. All-time classis.
This is by far Miyazaki's greatest achievement and a must watch movie for everyone. The Blu Ray version brings the colours to life and shows off the detail in every scene.
I'd consider Princess Mononoke to be one of best films from the Miyazaki catalogue. Despite a fairly consistent environmental message, the film doesn't suffer from too much lecturing, and tempers every softer moment with a dramatic one. The great balance means that the arcs all flow quite smoothly towards the ending crescendo. The finale has an almost Spielbergian happy ending, but having experienced everything up to that point, one feels oblige to concede any complaints they may harbour. Thoughtful and atmospheric, it's a story told with great maturity while still remaining largely accessible to all ages. Definitely recommended.
