    I thought this was so well done! Every time I thought it was going to get lame and cliche, the dialogue saved itself by becoming witty and self-aware. It's happily-ever-after, but different, and more fulfilling...

    Sehr gutes Märchen mit ungemein hoher Geschwindigkeit, die Geschichte lässt von Anfang an kaum Zeit zum Luftholen und auch die Story ist gar nicht so umkomplex für ein Märchen.

    I was surprised to find that this is actually a decent fantasy/fairy tale flick; the acting's good (Michelle Pfeiffer in particular is outstanding), the story's entertaining (very 'Princess Bride'-esque, but with an ending that is perhaps a bit too quick fix and predictable (but not enough to ruin the movie)), and the effects are great. A nice Friday night movie, in other words.

    If you're going to use fantasy cliches - uncertain hero coming of age, damsel in distress, witch seeking eternal youth - this is the way to do it. These cliches, mixed with a bit of hilarious trope-subversion, are exaggerated with an earnest simplicity which is surprisingly endearing. It has all the elements of a classic fairytale, with just enough twist to let us see it with new eyes - not to mention a marvelous cast of British actors (hey, David…

    Visually appealing, but I do get tired of the storyline where an older (and, therefore, evil by the story's parameters) female is seeking to take youth and/or beauty away from a magical, younger and/or prettier woman. However, as distracting as that bit was, I may have to re-watch this and try to focus of other aspects of the story.

    Aventura, magia, imaginación, humor y amor. El mayor defecto es la elección del actor protagonista.

    I liked Matthew Vaughn's style as much as ever here. This world was vibrant, and I enjoyed the film quite a bit, especially the performances.

    Le doy un 4 porque el personaje de Robert De Niro me ha hecho mucha gracia y porque hay algunas escenas bastante salvables, pero en general me parece una película tonta, llena de tópicos y que a mí no me ha resultado ni graciosa ni digna de ser recordada. Meh.

    I was looking forward to seeing this. In fact, I almost went to see it on the big screen when it first came out, but now I’m glad I didn’t. It was not as good as expected.

    The film starts off slowly. Very slowly. It establishes the existence of a magical kingdon adjacent to Engliand and separated by a simple stone wall. To win his love interest, a village youth, Tristan (played nicely by Charlie Cox), sets off in search…
