Movie Views

After Boyle establishes Damian, his family and his quirky new community, Millions really starts to lag. The imagination gives way to simple subplots.

It's a classic fantasy set-up, which Boyle and Boyce turn into a beguiling comedy-drama full of memorable moments...

A modern fairy tale with imagination that dazzles kids and adult alike.

What makes Millions quirky is also what prevents it from genuinely immersing the viewer in the story.

The material doesn't approach the sendup of grownup roleplaying in Catch Me If You Can.

Millions serves up enough touching emotional moments to coin its own richness, a respect for goodness in human nature.

While most of Millions takes place reality, the audience is invited into Damian's imagination...it becomes the movie that "Finding Neverland" should have been.

Millions is a kids' movie that doesn't talk down to its audience.

Weekly Planet (Tampa, FL)

...Millions pulls off the neat trick of affirming that money can't buy happiness, even as it has a ball pretending that it can.

Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

An edgy and endearing exploration of childish faith knocking against the hard and mysterious facts of a world ruled by grown-ups.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Directorially, it's exciting. Emotionally, it's engagingly warm, funny and magical -- without being gooey.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

As a stylist, Boyle is something of an action painter, throwing images on the canvas of the screen and seeing what sticks.

Whatever one's reservations about the film, young Etel is utterly, endearingly appealing as the gentle-souled Damien.

This winning low-key British yarn is told with real creativity and succeeds by developing characters and situations in an original way.

It gives its fanciful story some meaty context, and refuses to condescend to its audience.

[I]t is refreshing to consider th[e] windfall of wealth not as greed satisfied but with the innocence of a young child

Somebody forgot to tell screenwriter Frank Cotrell Boyce and director Danny Boyle that they were making a movie for kids. That's actually a good thing.

It gets you to look at cardboard boxes, bank notes and, for that matter, Danny Boyle in quite a different way.
