The movie by itself is really great, I loved the Toto scene and Elinor is just weird, but compared to the book, the movie is just like the Eragon movie. They changed and cut out some of the best scenes, in my opinion, if people loved the book, directors. producers and stuff should stick to the book, like the Harry Potter movies, the cast actually said lines right out of the book and people didn't

This was a very good family movie. My 13, 11, 7 and 4 year old all watched it and didn't even wiggle. My husband and I also enjoyed it. Very beautifully set and a fun story.

Actually I was surprised it actually was different and entertaining. I am so tired of going to the movies and seeing "Remakes" of movies gone by. Half of which were bad the first time around - or remakes of "B" movies that were total trash the first time out. At least someone in Hollywood took a risk and made something new and different. It was very good and family worthy.

Aims for a blend of whimsy and tingly suspense but botches nearly every spell it tries to cast. Full Review

For the young people in its demographic wheelhouse, Inkheart packs a welcome amount of entertainment value, creating a genuinely original world of enchantment. Full Review

It's a shame that by its conclusion the movie feels like just another special-effects-driven story. Full Review

Inkheart looks good and is well acted but, in the end, it left me indifferent. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Not since the thunderous digital onslaughts of "Jumanji" has the big screen seen such too-muchness. Full Review
