Movie Reviews

  • though the movie's digital style is technically more modern than Ghibli's previous hand-rendered features, “Earwig” looks far more primitive; with virtually none of the distinctive surrealist touches that have become the studio's signature
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • the film mostly casts doubt on Goro Miyazaki's basic ability to tell a story; the problem with "Earwig and the Witch" has more to do with its confused plotting than its more or less serviceable animation
    2 of 4 by Steven Scaife [Slant Magazine ]
  • Studio Ghibli's first 3D animation is fun but unpolished; I'll instead think of Earwig and the Witch as an interesting experiment; it will entertain kids and adults alike with humor and magic before it fades away later that day
    Review rate : C+ by Jared Mobarak [The Film Stage ]
  • missing that old Goro Miyazaki magic; "Earwig and the Witch" is a pronounced departure from tradition that proves dispiritingly generic in both appearance and tone
    by Michael Rechtshaffen [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it's a shame across the board. Earwig and the Witch just lacks any kind of magic, none of the spark of the earlier films. For having three dimensions, it seems devoid of depth
    2.5 of 5 by Kyle Anderson [Nerdist ]
  • full of charm, but falls short in storytelling; While Earwig and the Witch's CG animation is lovely and memorably unique, it can’t begin to save an underdeveloped plot and characters
