With such a dedicated fan base, and so much profit being made by his name, no would dare say Miyazaki had a 'bad' film. Only the few and realistic would recognize a good film from an 'uhhh,' one, no matter who made it. Valley of the Wind, is by far his worst piece of work. Even Miyazaki himself gave this film a 'D', and was unsatisfied when compared to the 13 year project manga. However, because of the film's distinctive premise, and unique science-fiction/fantasy/agnst-based tale, it was quickly accepted and a huge success. The film has some very rich and detailed ideas, with some conveyed very well throughout the story, but ultimately, the mellow drama, plus/or the over dramatic elements felt purposeless, or unneeded, simply to keep the film going. The characters have a great look to them, but also fall short of true connection and affection. Add this to the loose-ended and jumpy storyline, and you get Nausicaa, Valley of the Winds, a film with potential, but lacking in ALOT. I would only recommend this film to anyone that is interested in the history of Miyazaki, and how he got started off.
