      Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com "Patema Inverted" mines a lot of entertainment value and social allegory from a pretty great concept despite being held back from greatness by a clunky narrative. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 29, 2014 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times An orphaned girl and a fatherless boy bridge opposing societies in "Patema Inverted," a delightful animated fable from Yasuhiro Yoshiura. Aug 28, 2014 Full Review Kyle Smith New York Post The film by Yasuhiro Yoshiura suffers from many of the same flaws as other anime features - a plodding pace, broad humor, a bland heroine and snarly, one-dimensional villains. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 27, 2014 Full Review Nick Hilton CineVue Patema Inverted has children in its lead roles but, putting that aside, it's a relatively standard science fiction movie. Rated: 2/5 Mar 21, 2019 Full Review Derek Smith Tiny Mix Tapes Unless you're jonesing for new Japanese animation, you'd be advised to reverse your gravitational pull and steer clear of this one. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 11, 2015 Full Review Barbara Shulgasser Common Sense Media Dark anime delves into prejudice in upside-down worlds. Rated: 3/5 Nov 7, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 39 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/10/23 Full Review Audience Member really nice, love the protagonists Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Utterly jaw-dropping. I watched it years ago as a child and even though I had no understanding of gravity or even really what was happening at the time, I was just as enthralled as I was after watching it today. Truly stunning, on par with even the best of Ghibli movies. I could never recommend this movie enough, but as you can see- I took off half a star, that is solely because my brain is still very bad at processing the whole thing and the conclusion leaves me very shaken, which I personally enjoy because it just means there are more things to consider and imagine. even the dub is great!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member The best movie you'll see in your life Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Movie ended well, characters had good voice acting, and movie never felt to slow to watch or to fast to fathom Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Although the characters can be simplistic and the love story cheesy at worst, the movie concept left me at the end with a dazzling sentiment of upside-down that I couldn't quite shake. (The scenes were they keep toying with the gravity were my favorites) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
