    Hasta después de media hora no caí en que esto es la actualización nipona de War Games, pero con un acento en el trasfondo familiar desmedido (incapaz de contar cuántos personajes hay en total) y, de algún modo, con Ozu como guía espiritual. Y lo sorprendente es eso: Las preocupaciones y problemas del protagonista comiezan pareciendo más cercanas a las tipicas de un adolescente (confía en ti mismo, etc.), pero cambian radicalmente hacia el valor inquebrantable de la unión familiar…

    Summer Wars is a film by the great japanese director Mamoru Hosoda about a teenage guy that's good at math and really shy that accepts to pretend to be the boyfriend of his crush that's the most popular girl on his school.

    The visuals are just fantastic (like in all Mamoru Hosoda films), they are colourful and breathtaking, the story is great too, it explores topics of technology, confidence, family and forgiveness and some really nice characters with varied and…

    A well written character study disguised as a "video game movie".

    This is a good film that was very well animated. At first it seemed weird like watching two separate films in one movie, a family drama and some cautionary cyber terrorism tale. The two eventually meld together quite well but. It did piss me off how long it took some of the members of the family to release the gravity of the situation and a few of them continued to piss me off afterwards. Also the weight of the climatic…

    Excellent animation as I have come to expect from Hosoda. The plot was pretty cheesy and easy to predict but overall still quite enjoyable to watch.

    I can't decide if the OZ storyline should have been given a more detailed elaboration or if it should have excised altogether. Summer Wars devotes most of its time to family dynamics, and while it handles that subject matter decently, it doesn't deliver anything new. Hosoda's talents are best displayed through his colorful action sequences, but there just isn't enough of that to go around.

    Another Mamoru Hosoda movie.

    Fun little flick about family and teamwork. Kind of classic themes, but it still works.

    "Summer Wars" is beautifully animated, original, and quite interesting. The characters are well fleshed out, and I rooted for them. Although there are some pacing issues here and there, the drama falls flat, and the end was a bit predictable, "Summer Wars" is a fun time and an original movie overall.

    Me hace gracia cuando la gente opina que el anime está muerto existiendo gente como Mamoru Hosoda. Su animación no es sólo cojonuda, sino que sus historias tienen humanidad, drama, emoción y buen gusto que más de un director desearía tener.
