About this movie

Fun movie to watch and enjoyable the first time watching it, but as the film draws closer and closer to the end I was able to call out everything I felt would happen and did happen. There were some moments that did tug on my heart strings and even pop off with excitement even in the (Geese Howard tone) "predictable" final part. Overall a very entertaining film.

This showed people how to be brave even me. I was a scared boy. But when I've seen this movie it gave me more then that. I know people have different opinions on this movie but it felt like I was in it. I've felt the anger, I've felt the happiness, I've even felt the sadness when I saw Kumatetsu on his death bed. Kumatetsu is a wise person. I've felt like shout at my TV saying "Fight Kumatetsu" every time he fights. Thus this is my all-time favorite movie. And thank you for the people that made this movie

If you've seen and enjoyed films like The girl who leaped through time, Summer Wars, and Wolf Children. You're in for another enjoyable time as the same director that made those brings you the boy and the beast. I thoroughly enjoyed the animation and the world building it did with the beasts. Give it a go and watch as a beast and child grow together.
