Babe: Pig in the City Reviews

March 1, 2016
A brilliant, grotesquely underrated family film criticised at the time of its release for being too dark for young audiences.
June 17, 2014
Has no small amount of merit, especially in the areas of production and costume design, but... [not] in any meaningful way a successful or even appropriate follow-up.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Carries its predecessor's torch into darker, quixotic territories, bursting at the seams with folkloric witticism and hellzapoppin' imagery.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
September 16, 2010
Darker than the original, not for very young kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's George Miller's masterpiece, maybe even the best commercial film of 1998.
January 15, 2005
This is the stuff of Dickens, told on the scale of Blade Runner and Brazil, with the madcap spirit of The Great Muppet Caper.

September 7, 2003
An amazing accomplishment. George Miller brings the same approach to this sequel as he did with the Mad Max trilogy: Don't re-make, re-invent. A work of genius.

...Paints a bleak picture of humanity. Not to mention, shall we say, animality.

Despite its G-rating, the movie includes numerous scenes of animals in peril, including a pit bull that nearly hangs himself, a crippled dog that gets thrown into a wall and a goldfish that almost suffocates... Happy holidays, kids!

Babe needed a sequel as much as Citizen Kane or Casablanca.

Would anyone go for a sequel to The Wizard of Oz that catapulted Dorothy and Toto into the world of Once Were Warriors or Escape From New York?
Full Review | Original Score: F

Where Babe was warm, gentle, and cuddly, Pig in the City is fast paced and antic.

Miller's confident, technically astounding direction produces challenging ideas at every turn.

BABE has all but lost its bearings.
January 1, 2000
It's a nice change of pace to find a sequel that doesn't merely try to remake the original, but Babe: Pig in the City lacks any of the original's endearing gentle spirit.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

More magical than the original!
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
January 1, 2000
A sequel that lacks the quiet beauty and subtlety of the original!
January 1, 2000
A surrealistic spectacle!
January 1, 2000
Brilliant!
