Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A generally dreadful, sub-par animation."
‑ Andrew Osmond, Empire Magazine
"A strong cast on paper, but you wonder if this is a collective sales pitch to make up for the lack of energy on the screen."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"It doesn't look bad, but the spark of originality and interest is lacking."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"It may have Antonio Banderas and Rupert Everett on board, but this 3D cartoon about a would-be knight is more dreck than Shrek."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
"This disappointing CG animation fails to capture the sense of fairytale wonder that its narrative requires."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"The action is clunky, the jokes fall flat time and again, and the script tries so hard to get off the ground that you can almost feel the wind hitting you in the kisser from its frantic wing-flaps."
‑ Jayne Nelson, SFX Magazine
"If imitation is flattery, the makers of How To Train Your Dragon and the Oscar-winning Brave must never have felt flatter."
‑ Elliott Noble, Sky Movies
"Even Banderas' character feels like a cheap knock-off, who is not fit to polish the boots of Puss."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Seeking to match the comic pizzazz of Shrek, Puss in Boots and Brave, Spanish-made animated adventure Justin and the Knights of Valour falls disappointingly short, despite the best efforts of a very game, mostly British voice cast."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"The frantic plot and shrill comic relief make for a disappointing dud."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"An underwhelming saga, told with the verve of a medieval video game."
‑ Siobhan Synnot, Scotsman
"A sweet-natured film that kids in the 8-12 age bracket will fall for."
‑ James Mottram, The List
