Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This affectionate fan tribute to the legendary stop-motion special effects artist is distinguished by the fact that the fans paying tribute are among the most successful directors in the world."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"A continual delight."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The most fascinating point made in the film is that it was Harryhausen who invented the way we all think dinosaurs moved. Those gestures - adopted as truth even by palaeontologists - first came from him."
‑ Antonia Quirke, Financial Times
"A fascinating and loving look at one of cinema's true greats."
‑ Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
"A little too exhaustive in its detail, but if you loved his febrile creations in Jason And The Argonauts or the Sinbad movies, it's worth catching."
‑ Siobhan Synnot, Scotsman
"While a little light and fluffy - and not offering much insight or info that hasn't been covered in the numerous books on Harryhausen - it's a wonderful celebration of his work."
‑ Dave Golder, SFX Magazine
"A shallow, fannish tribute to the stop-motion master who made The 7th Voyage of Sinbad."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Told with affection and unprecedented access, this is the definitive word on the career of one of cinema's most authentic geniuses."
‑ Simon Kinnear, Total Film
"Essential viewing for any fantasy film fans."
‑ Henry Northmore, The List
"Harryhausen emerges as a charming, likable pioneer, a mood helped along by the adoring nature of this profile."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
"You come away feeling Harryhausen perhaps deserves a more dynamic tribute, but it's a solid round-up of an extraordinary career."
‑ Adam Lee Davies, Little White Lies
