Review of Arion (1986)

Moving picture, 118 minutes

Hades abducts a son of the Titans from his blind mother, to train the child as a warrior for the purposes of the underworld.

Mythological action. Good music by Hisaishi, done in the vein of his recent Nausicaä (1984), and lots of great animation. Good pacing too, but some plot holes and plenty of clichés.
