The artwork in this myth-like tale is gorgeous, bringing to life the creative spirit of the Book of Kells, and the movie is worth seeing just for that. Told from a young boy’s point of view, the story is decidedly targeted at children: simple and linear in plot, with just enough mystery and darkness to impart the highest-stakes feeling appropriate a book that turns darkness to light.

Despite some weird racial caricatures towards the beginning and the protagonist being kind of boring, this is an enchanting, old-fashioned, lovable fairy tale. It's got a contagious enthusiasm and a beautiful score, and it was impossible for me not to get sucked in.

Looking for a film without Disney princesses? How about a film that celebrates books and art? This is the film for you. I loved the film's willingness to show some hard realities--i.e., books and ideas won't necessarily protect people against a physically stronger enemy. Cool animation as well.

Visually impressive, often breathtakingly gorgeous. Only the slightness of the story (what little is here is still overstretched for the running length) prevents me from rating it a higher score.

"The Secret of the Kells" is an absolutely gorgeously drawn, colored, and animated feature that handles its sometimes dark subject matter with enough subtlety and visual storytelling to maintain its tranquil and beautiful atmosphere.

Although this film is visually pleasing, I was never fully hooked to its story. I truly wanted to like this, but I just found myself to be bored throughout most of it and I had to make an effort not to switch this off halfway through.
