The oddball elements may surprise viewers expecting something a bit more ordinary in approach, but the surprise should be a pleasant one.

There was just enough connection between Claire Danes and Charlie Cox that happily ever after is exactly what I wanted.

On the surface, Stardust looks like a cheesy little fluff fantasy. In many ways it is. Yet at the same time, it's also the most fun I've had with a film since watching the first Pirates of the Caribbean.

Primo contemporâneo de A Princesa Prometida, o filme também traz referências óbvias a Macbeth e Rei Lear em sua agitada trama, revelando um senso de humor eficaz e com toques sombrios que o transformam em uma mais do que bem-vinda surpresa.

Like the star that falls to Earth near the beginning of the movie, Stardust is glittery and pretty and possesses its own pleasing-enough personality, but it won't set the world on fire.

Stardust is, ultimately, a pretty entertaining movie. It's just not the great film that it so easily could have been.

...charming and enchanting and adventurous and romantic and funny and hugely entertaining.

Director Matthew Vaughn, best known for his grotesque gangster slasherfest Layer Cake, has absolutely no problem balancing equal servings of breathtaking imagination and perverse glee.

Wants to be the next-generation Princess Bride, and, boy, does it come close.

Should be congratulated as a film that aspires to the non-mainstream genre of fantasy fairy tale with a hint of Brothers Grimm edginess.

Dazzling fantasy rom-com has some dark moments.

Despite its faults, Stardust should at least be accounted a partial success - and certainly more than a failure.

Great family fun.

There's a shameless romantic streak here, quite welcome in a boy-targeted genre that usually insists battles are cool and love is for wimps.

Peter Bradshaw

A wackily surreal, primary-coloured fairytale from a graphic novel by Neil Gaiman.

Vaughn pays scant attention to the niceties of a well-told story and buries his shekels in a sparkling cast.

A film with true cross-generational appeal, Stardust is as satisfying as any of the summer's tent-pole blockbusters, and certainly more magical.
