An innovative mix of sophisticated puppetry and special effects, Labyrinth has all the components of classic myth.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
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.
Henson's imagination is boundless. But his movie has no pep. It's a dream in neutral.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A real masterpiece of puppetry and special effects, an absolutely gorgeous children's fantasy movie.
A remarkable achievement.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
