Consensus: A faithful interpretation that captures the spirit of whimsy, action, and off-kilter humor of Neil Gaiman, Stardust juggles multiple genres and tones to create a fantastical experience.

Mark Bourne

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.

It's puffed up in obvious ways but disarmingly puckish in others.

This star is not as much of a beauty as it could have been.

Time Out

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.

AV Club

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.

Steve Biodrowski

The oddball elements may surprise viewers expecting something a bit more ordinary in approach, but the surprise should be a pleasant one.

Everybody has a lot of fun here.

This luminous, magical movie will dazzle even the fantasy-film phobic.

The Scorecard Review

There was just enough connection between Claire Danes and Charlie Cox that happily ever after is exactly what I wanted.

Whimsical, fantastic, and mythical only in the way Neil Gaiman can write it. This adaptation from his book of the same name is perfectly fun and romantic.… More

When fantasy is done right it can be truly amazing. Unfortunately, "Stardust" falls victim to bad visuals and a silly story. I actually didn't… More
