Great energy and creativity went into the construction, production and direction of this movie, but it doesn't have a story that does justice to the production.

For all its visual inventiveness, there's something inert about the late Jim Henson's 1986 fantasy adventure Labyrinth.

It's be pretty good if it weren't for the nonsensical songs.

Henson's imagination is boundless. But his movie has no pep. It's a dream in neutral.

Unfortunately, this contemporary (at least, for the era) fairy tale, directed and co-written by Muppets creator Jim Henson, never sets a timely tone beyond the 1980s. It remains disappointingly tethered to yesteryear.

More about wacky creatures and spectacular set pieces than emotion and coherent storytelling.

Plays like The Wizard of Oz or Alice in Wonderland crossed with a middling episode of "The Muppet Show" guest-starring David Bowie … suffers from a distinct lack of charm.

That the whole mess of Labyrinth was entertaining once to a child is a precarious gauge of quality.

If, like most of its fans who caught up with the film through VHS and afternoon television airings on the ABC, then seeing it on the big screen will surely rank as one of the most eye-opening, fantastical experiences of the year.
