Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Here's a fantasy movie for people who thought Labyrinth was too plain. Inhabiting a dream landscape far richer and stranger than anyone's subconscious could actually invent, this adventure tale combines CGI, puppets, paintings, drawings, and live action to create a gorgeous production that continues to reveal astonishing new sights all the way through its ending. It finds emotional power in its story about a teenager breaking free from her parents, even if the characters are thinly-developed. It's too bad this film didn't find a larger audience; it's hard to imagine anyone not being charmed by its many imaginative surprises.
