Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Hiyao Miyazaki didn't always have a magic touch. He fills this mid-eighties dud with bland archetypes for heroes and villains, lame physical comedy, and a weird lack of wonder at the events that transpire, such the discovery of a fucking flying castle. This is ho-hum early work from an animator who luckily mastered his craft in other films.
