Coraline Reviews

Jake Wilson
The Age (Australia)

This is one of those films that works best if you can forget about the source material. Selick's film is more like a three-ring circus.

The 3-D animation is just superb in Coraline; the imagination of Neil Gaiman has taken flight with director Henry Selick.

Coraline is a genuinely creepy film that employs 3-D trickery to its best affect. A deliciously entertaining mythological adventure.

A whimsical fantasy created in stop animation and set in alternate universes, Coraline is a visual treat certain to whisk every age into a magical wonderland.

It takes an extraordinary mind to create a truly original, truly new, truly beautiful fable, Coraline is one such creation.

Walks the thin line between scary and downright entertaining...

A wonderfully weird film, a modern-day Alice in Wonderland that marries technology and good old-fashioned storytelling.

What Would Toto Watch?

Coraline is near perfect family entertainment - if your family can handle some pretty ghoulish creatures.

At times it was trying too hard to be WHIMSICAL %u2122 and missing the point that whimsy is best taken unselfconsciously. By all means see it if you can also endure the tedious splendor that is Nightmare Before Christmas. They are both stunning to look

If you're going to make a movie that doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts, you might as well make sure those parts are beautifully formed.

Times [UK]

The film combines stunning visuals - there are scenes of incredible beauty - with good old-fashioned storytelling that is funny, inventive and at times scary. Destined to be a classic.

Observer [UK]

The movie is beautifully crafted, but like the same director's other stop-motion feature, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, it will mystify and in some cases terrify younger children.

It's easy to admire the film's psychedelic surrealism and its marvellous design, but it's not a great deal of fun.

Here the film goes very dark but kids will lap it up, scares and all.

The Scorecard Review

Here's my recommendation, don't let this be your kid's first scary movie, especially in the 3D, which is the only way to see this beautiful, hypnotic film.

This dark edge will be the biggest test of the film as a commercial prospect: it may be too terrifying for the target audience. But for braver kids - and parents - this is a thrilling, even challenging ride.

Like the Tin Man of Oz, Coraline is a miracle of engineering - and absolutely heartless.
