  • Great energy and creativity went into the construction, production and direction of this movie, but it doesn't have a story that does justice to the production. show more

  • I think mature pre-teens along with immature teens might relate to this overbearing showcase of bizarre rubber duckies. Adults are bound to find it a major yawn, and young children are likely to be scared out of their wits. [27 Jun 1986, p.82]

  • Labyrinth packs enough surprises to captivate an audience of children and provides enough wisecracking to keep adults laughing. show more
