      Noe G Porco rosso is also amazing and fantastic studio ghibli film i give this film a 10/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Carson P Very interesting and original to make a story of a fighter pilot that turns into a pig mutant man that wears sunglasses all the time he reminds me of lemmy from Motorhead, Kerry king of slayer and racecar drivers dale earnhardt and Richard petty. I like how the Japanese animation director Miyazaki makes a story that tells later of how he became cursed and that he was fighting at war with other pilots that all died fighting for their country and bassically he is like he wanted to be the one to die and not them, it made me think that he was suicidal well at least at the end he fights off attacking Air Force by bassically drawing them to chase him and I thought he died sacrificing himself with that but it turns out to be ambiguous as it's not explained if he was killed or if he survived. The animation is subperb and like all other films from Miyazaki it tells a strong plot and provides some message and deep meaning, and this one was showing a pilot with a pig nose and face with sunglasses and a mustache who in the begging depicts him as some bounty hunter and later uses a plane that he goes somewhere to be fixed. He also speaks in a deep voice and has the personality and resemblence to John Wayne and Clark gable who one or the other would be a good choice to play him, at least if they were still alive when this is made ). though they would have been old but porco ( who also as the film explains was formerly a normal human pilot named Marco ) is voiced by former Batman actor Michael Keaton ( in the English dub ) an odd choice for the role, as he doesn't look like one to play a deep voiced heavy jacketed pilot with a mustache and glasses that looks like a racecar driver like Richard petty or dale earnhardt sr , or a musician like kerry king ( slayer ) lemmy ( Motorhead ) or $$$$$ even toss in slash ( Guns N' Roses ), with the exception of being Batman. But still it had to be done. The villain donald Curtis ( voiced by Cary elwees ) i felt was an annoying, loathsome and unlikeable cliched, Gaston/evil Prince Charming style apponent that also reminded of me of an early movie of Clark gable as a villain in love with the love interest of the main charachter ) one could describe him as being like butch cat trope from Tom and Jerry. This movie still gives us a unique and interesting charachter with cool designs that could make him be a charachter to put in a mix up series of all kinds of iconic animated cartoon charachters and in my opinion this succeeds in doing just that well I know that's a strange way to praise this Miyazaki masterpiece but porco really does look like a charachter inspired by a real life person and looking like a heavy metal rock star or racecar driver with glasses and a Stache and to be honest I would rather give this Miyazaki film a three and a half I know I'm supposed to like all other fans give it a four like they would to any film from him. Though this is among his underrated ones it is for good reason as it shows him making a charachter that reminds us of those deep voiced dudes that play guitar or drive a car or motorcycle, anyways it's a solid animated film and deserves to bee seen once and most definetly have the charachter of porco rosso be featured in a mix up show. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Nathan H "I would rather be a pig than a fascist." Maybe the most underrated Miyazaki gem. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Chase C Simply put, it's fun. It's got some awesome plane action and it's quite funny compared to most Ghibli's. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Holly S estranhamente bom demais e a incerteza do que de fato o Porco é, deixa tudo melhor! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Ashish P Porco Rosso takes you to a world of wonder like any other Miyazaki film, but holds an endearment and a sense of comfort to it that can keep you engaged till the end.

      Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Mr. Miyazaki smooshes fantasy and history into a pastel-pretty yarn as irresistible as his feminism. Rated: 4/5 Dec 22, 2011 Full Review Empire Magazine It's solid Miyazaki, although he has reached greater heights both before and since. Rated: 3/5 Feb 1, 2006 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It’s colorful, innocent, bright, and most importantly romantic in the most expansive capacity of the word. Rated: 4/4 Aug 22, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A rambunctious comedy. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 18, 2021 Full Review Sergio Benítez Espinof A plot that never bores, that keeps the viewer completely hooked and that is the perfect tool to show a SPECTACULAR direction.
