Movie Reviews

The best
J. O. Booker | St. Louis Mo. | 12/25/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When Hollywood discovers Anime a lot of writers, actors,directors and musicians are going to be looking for jobs. This story has it all, action, romance comedy and intrigue all wrapped together in eight exciting volumes.I'm in awe of the Japanese. Their sense of timing, the camera angles that they use, the sense of grandeur and majesty that they are able to pull off is nothing short of a miracle. Escaflowne represents the best this medium has. The powerful but mysterious Guymelefs, Van the dragonslayer, Hitomi the fortune-telling girl from the "Mystic Moon", Allen the dashing white knight, and Dornkirk the alchemist and his fate-machine. Escaflowne is an epic in the true sense of the word and a sweet little fable where all the characters have pointy noses. If you're tired of waiting for the good Hollywood directors to come out with a decent movie (James Cameron, etc.) check into Escaflowne and Japanimation. You may forget about live-action movies altogether."
Escaflowne is alright

"I like it because of the storyline. A good story is all that matters. I hate sub vs. dub debates. A good anime transcends language and age barriers. I like the film quality of Escaflowne but most anime is overrated. Ignore sub vs. dub debates. A good anime will not be altered by the voiceovers it will be more believeable and connect with the audience better."
The show just keeps getting better

"In this installment of escaflowne we learn that Van is actually half draconian, and that his mother has dissapeared , we also see a boy who looks a lot like Allen.It is a series that can only improve , and i will surely buy the 5 remaining dvd's.
The meleths are just amazing , and the fights between them are very impressive.It is not just about the battles though , the story is wellwritten and Hitomi's powers are becoming all the more interesting.Everyone who likes manga must own this."
False Appearances

"Hitomi discovers that Van is a rare heir to the Draconians, the winged people of Gaea, a race that is viewed with suspicion by many humans. The first episode mixes history, the story of Van's parents and childhood with the very real present dangers they face in flight to the kingdom of Freid.The following episodes explore Freid, and Allen Schezar's efforts to stave off and invasion from Zaibach, who are implacably chasing Escaflowne across the surface of Gaea. Folken makes use of a Doppelganger to infiltrate Freid and influence the judgment of Prince Chid, who is acting as regent. With Schezar recovering from wounds, Hitomi and Van must discover the source of their betrayal. Millerna's relationship with Allen Schezar expands. It has been obvious that she loves him, but our initial impressions were of a selfish and spiteful young woman. Now we find unexpected depths and dedication to more than her own satisfaction. This is true of most of the characters in Escaflowne, just when you think you have them pegged, they grow unexpectedly. This is one of the factors that make this series exceptional.Some thoughts about the dubbing. Since my Japanese skills are rudimentary, I have to rely on the English. And naturally, I would prefer spoken dubbing to subtitles. In Escaflowne, the English script generally follows the subtitles, with minor deviations. For the most part, the voice actors also seem appropriate to the parts. There are one or two exceptions though that do make it worth going to the trouble of listening to the Japanese, especially Dilandau, a psychotic warrior, who sounds menacing in the Japanese, and a complete idiot in the dubbing.Even so, this remains a wonderful series, full of action, romance, and all the other things that make an adventure story more than just a battle of opposing forces. If you have got here by watching the first two episodes, you know what I mean. For newcomers, I suggest you track down the entire series."
