'As reality and fantasy blur, we're taken on an occasionally confounding but enchanting quest with poignant reveals in store.' ★★★★ Matt Looker, Total Film

'It's hard to resist a movie which packs in battling giant robots, a perky schoolgirl protagonist, self-driving cars, Japan's bullet-train and even the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.' Trevor Johnston, Radio Times
