San Francisco Chronicle
A mostly superb cast, superior special effects, a sparkling musical score and a fantasy-filled plot . Full Review

The New York Times
Instead of the kind of inspired imaginative synergy that distinguished the "Lord of the Rings" and later "Harry Potter" pictures, this movie, directed by Mark Waters ("Mean Girls"), feels more like a sloppy, secondhand pander. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Suffers slightly from that not-so-fresh feeling. Full Review
