What's best about it is that it seems real by the logic of childhood - it looks as things SHOULD look, if kids had it their way. Full Review

An engaging and exciting family film that at times feels a bit like "The Lord of the Rings Jr." Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
The next two hours might not have quite delivered on that initial promise of wonder - we grown-ups, being heavy, are not so easily swept away by visual tricks - except when I looked away from the screen at the faces of breathless and wide-eyed children, my own among them, for whom the whole experience was new, strange, disturbing and delightful.

David Edelstein
An entertaining, emotional, and surprisingly intimate movie--an epic saga of fauns and talking (Cockney) beavers and evil sorceresses and triumphal resurrections and massive, sweeping battles that nonetheless feels … small. Full Review
James Berardinelli
On balance, more of the movie works than doesn't, but this isn't 140 minutes of unqualified successes. Full Review
