Hotel Transylvania Reviews

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

Has the definite stamp of Sandler and his crew, but in the end it's a fine and very sweet animated family film.

In the role of a concerned father and cartoon monster, Sandler manages to be something he has not been onscreen in a long time: likable.

Kids will enjoy Hotel Transylvania, and it won't bore the socks off adults too.

Movie Metropolis

There's a good chance that children under 10 will find "Hotel Transylvania" entertaining, because it's as non-threatening as can be and the jokes are obvious. There's an equally good chance that everyone else will wander off . . .

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

From the spooked start, the comic-rhythm dial's set to bulldozer. Whizzes through the superficially amusing conceit without actually taking much time to craft cunning comedy. Like a sugar-rushed Count Chocula-meets-Fawlty-Towers idea.

Laramie Movie Scope

This is a perfectly O.K. animated film. The animation is really quite good. The characters are interesting, but the predictable story isn't very compelling. It is a slightly above average animated feature.

Daily Star

Director Genndy Tartakovsky has fashioned something even the most sensitive little flowers in your family can enjoy.

Lewis Corner
Digital Spy

Hotel Transylvania might be useful as a primer to introduce young film fans to some classic screen creatures, but it falls way behind the standard set by wittier animations from the likes of Pixar and Aardman.

Jason Buchanan
TV Guide's Movie Guide

The concept of monsters as the good guys and humans as the villains is nothing new in the realm of movies, but Tartakovsky keeps things moving along at a satisfying pace as the stellar voice cast have a field day with their iconic characters.

... another empty-calorie animated feature ...

Checking into this hotel will give you a thrill and get you in the mood for Halloween.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It's not good enough to actually like, nor is it bad enough to get worked up about.

James White
SFX Magazine

With a script by that manages to dilute Adam Sandler's baser instincts with a real love for Universal monsters, Hotel Transylvania is no Grown Ups-style torture.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

It's inventive, wittily drawn, macabre in a Charles Addams vein, and overlong. Children will find it as much fun as Halloween.

Irish Times

The characters and story, forged by six different directors and many more writers over a six-year-production stint, leave little room for Tartakovsky tricks and tics.

Eye-catching animation and non-stop jokes make this animated monster movie a lot more fun than we expect. It's packed with gross-out gags that will keep kids laughing, plus clever character-based humour for the grown-ups.

Alan Jones
Radio Times

The ultimate message about ignorance being the scariest thing of all is a sincere one, but it gets lost in the nonstop, eager-to-please, uninspired zaniness.

Alex Zane
Sun Online

There is not much originality here, particularly not a daughter wanting to escape an overprotective parent - Brave and Tangled did this much better - and the 3D hardly registers.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

Sandler's second venture into animation is almost as unfunny as his horrendous Eight Crazy Nights, ten years ago.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

Comedy gothic isn't exactly novel, and frankly there is a sense here of a movie coasting along on Halloween hype-marketing, without providing as many laughs and ideas as it really could have done.
