James and the Giant Peach Reviews

As a tribute to the cranky genius of Dahl, it's both fond and, in the best sense, fruitful.

Another superb stop-action animated film from the same team responsible for Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

One of the brightest, giddiest and most outlandishly exciting of all the Disney Studio's recent major feature cartoons.

At its lyrical best, James and the Giant Peach, an adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1961 children's classic, evokes the casual enchantment of a book that, for many kids (including me), cast the spell of a goofily blissed-out mirage.

We fully anticipate the wrath of several generations of possessive children when we declare that the new Disney film of James and the Giant Peach is an improvement on Roald Dahl's 1961 backyard fantasy.

Despite a lightness of plot, it most beautifully captures the book's free-floating, fantastic sense of adventure and wonder.

James and the Giant Peach is frequently so alluring that viewers may feel the urge to get lost in the picture's curious shadings, intricate merriment and fantastical atmosphere.

In general the magic as well as the heart of Roald Dahl's novel has remained stubbornly on the page, leaving us with this overly mechanical copy, as appetizing as a once-flavorful peach that's been in cold storage for far too long.

This weird story has been transformed into a playful, visually arresting experience with more than a few allusions to The Wizard of Oz.

It's ripe to bursting with visual effects a heady combination of stop-motion and computer-generated imagery.

James and the Giant Peach, the latest animated film from Disney, is a technological marvel, arch and innovative with a daringly offbeat visual conception. But it's also a strenuously artful film with a macabre edge that may scare small children.

It will, I think, entertain kids for whom stop-motion animation is the last thing they're thinking about.
