Porco Rosso is an action-comedy film directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
An Italian fighter pilot who fought in the first World War has been turned into a pig due to a curse.
Now as a pig Marco (AKA Porco Rosso) keeps the town of Dubrovnik safe by taking out air pilots who are causing trouble for the locals.
An American pilot called Donald Curtis arrives in Dubrovnik to work with the pirates, he is a talented flyer and is the only person that is able to best Porco and eventually taking out his plane. Porco feeling defeated takes his plane to Milan to get it repaired and upgraded ready to return and beat Donald in a competition to earn back his credibility and respect.
I absolutely love the scenery of this film especially the flying shots which look breathtaking and beautiful, I have always loved the way that Studio Ghibli does the ocean and water in their films but the water in Porco Rosso is one of my favourites.
Michael Keeton plays the main character Porco Rosso and he does a great job of portraying the grumpy and rough nature of his character but the entire voice cast also gave a wonderful performance.
Porco Rosso is a hilarious comedy film that is filled with romance and action. It may at times come across as a little bit silly but that only adds to its personality and makes it even more lovable, its a film that I feel anyone could get into and enjoy.
I hope you enjoyed this review of Porco Rosso
