Recommendation: This is a great movie and is good for both adults and children. Since the English is not too difficult, it would be good for Japanese to watch, too. It’s an adventure/fantasy movie, full of action and suspense. It also has good computer graphics and animatronics (animal puppets that look real!). I really recommend that you see it!
