Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At the very least, the message it communicates is benign, mostly because it does not clearly possess any sort of message."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A worthy message, quietly delivered."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"A sweet, safe bet to entertain young girls over Christmas."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"It's professionally crafted fluff, disposable as chewing gum, but likely to hit the spot for the specific female primary-school age-group the film is aimed squarely at."
‑ Eddie Harrison, The List
"Lest it get too preachy, cute characterisations and kaleidoscopic visuals help the medicine go down."
‑ Oliver Pfeiffer, Total Film
"The story is slight, but the gentle humour and mild suspense will keep young viewers engaged, and the animation provides its own magic, particularly in the moments when Tink sets foot inside the Winter Woods and her wings gain a shimmering iridescence."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Harassed parents of daughters will probably buy the DVD."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"A solid entry in the Tinker Bell franchise that will play well to its target audience of pre-teen girls and won't feel like too much of a chore for dragged-along adults ..."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Even if fairies stories tend to be formulaic - fairy is happy, fairy gets in trouble, fairy gets out of trouble and learns a lesson - this one introduces the bold-ish concept of the sisters' bond rather than the usual marriage plot."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Time to Play Magazine
"an impressive adventure"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The brightly-coloured visuals and frenetic story ensures this is little more than a cinematic stocking filler."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"Everything about this 3D animation released on the "Disney Fairies" label (don't laugh) screams straight to video, or perhaps chirps it."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"The film is ... confident tackling real issues - global warming, prejudice - yet never patronises while maintaining a determinedly child-friendly vibe."
‑ , Sky Movies
"Do you believe that children deserve something better than empty-calorie candy floss? Clap your hands if you do."
‑ Siobhan Synnot, Scotsman
"Centers on sisterhood and family, with a wee bit of peril."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
