Danny Boyle's only great film featuring "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" is an urbane, thoughtful fable of Lego-bright color, vast imagination and a stout belief in meaningful displays of humanity, charity and altruism without stooping to sermons.

A significant part of the film's appeal emanates from Alex Etel's amiable personality that glows through his performance of a boy attempting to live up to his greatest potential.

Danny Boyle's heart is in the right place and there are some fun moments, but it can't quite overcome its inherent flaws as a slightly over manipulated work

In sly, sweet and frequently funny terms, Danny Boyle pleads a compelling case for the fundamental goodness of mankind.

Director Boyle continues to genre hop but Millions, a quirky comedy punctuated by unnecessary digressions, nicely fits the "childhood fantasy" bill.

I hesitate to say that this is a family film. That phrase too often conjures up, at least for adults, cutesy-poo animated features aimed squarely at the younger set.

A subversive fable from one of the UK's most engaging filmmakers, Millions sees director Danny Boyle transform a kiddie movie into a painfully accurate portrait of British consumerism.
