Porco Rosso Review – A
The film is about Porco Rosso, a human who was somehow turned into a pig. He’s a pilot and a bounty hunter and takes down bad air pirates. He’s known as Porco Rosso (“Crimson Pig”) because of his famous red plane.
This is an incredibly fun movie. I loved every minute of it. The idea is creative, it’s well paced and the characters feel very human and are likable. I even took a liking to Fio, who is definitely my least favorite member of the cast. For Ghibli standards, it’s surprisingly not too fantastical. But that’s definitely not a bad thing.
