Call this what this is…a spoiler free review of The Boy and The Beast. Let me start out by saying the film deserves all the praise it has received. It is an incredible film from start to finish and so many plot twists at just the right moment. It literally takes you in an entirely new direction, and believe it or not you really care about these characters, from start to finish. When it is all over it will cause you to say WOW!! Because you know you have in deed seen something very special, and very unique. I have never seen a film like this before, even though it may look like your standard lets take a boy and plop him down into an entirely new world. But then you realize that these characters even if they are different are very much the same, and how this all turns out. Would be the mother of all spoilers. If you love great animation, great stories, amazing plots, or even of fan of anime…you really need to check it out.
