Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like the star that falls to Earth near the beginning of the movie, Stardust is glittery and pretty and possesses its own pleasing-enough personality, but it won't set the world on fire."
‑ Mark Bourne,
"It's puffed up in obvious ways but disarmingly puckish in others."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Low-budget sci-fi disaster with some swearing."
‑ Brian Costello, Common Sense Media
"There was just enough connection between Claire Danes and Charlie Cox that happily ever after is exactly what I wanted."
‑ Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review
"Primo contemporâneo de A Princesa Prometida, o filme também traz referências óbvias a Macbeth e Rei Lear em sua agitada trama, revelando um senso de humor eficaz e com toques sombrios que o transformam em uma mais do que bem-vinda surpresa."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"You could call it a cousin of 'Time Bandits' or 'The Princess Bride', but it lacks the former's originality and the latter's heart."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"A stern editor with a sense of dramatic timing could have given this film more tension to go with its random bursts of comedy and big, happy fantasy setpieces, but lacking tautness, it'll have to settle for expansive joy."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"This star is not as much of a beauty as it could have been."
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Stardust is nothing short of pure magic."
‑ Brandon Fibbs, Colorado Springs Gazette
"Stardust is, ultimately, a pretty entertaining movie. It's just not the great film that it so easily could have been."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"Everybody has a lot of fun here."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"This luminous, magical movie will dazzle even the fantasy-film phobic."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"The oddball elements may surprise viewers expecting something a bit more ordinary in approach, but the surprise should be a pleasant one."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"On the surface, Stardust looks like a cheesy little fluff fantasy. In many ways it is. Yet at the same time, it's also the most fun I've had with a film since watching the first Pirates of the Caribbean."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"...charming and enchanting and adventurous and romantic and funny and hugely entertaining."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
