An innovative mix of sophisticated puppetry and special effects, Labyrinth has all the components of classic myth.

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.

A real masterpiece of puppetry and special effects, an absolutely gorgeous children's fantasy movie.

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.
