I ended up being slightly disappointed by it.

Pretty much a religious sermon attempting to jab at impressionable viewers about god, heaven, and spirituality.

The screenplay retains the gritty emotion of its source but gets ponderous in the iconic third act.

I was alternately charmed and disappointed ... The movie is certainly light years ahead of the mediocre television adaptation but it is not quite the definitive version of the story, despite the strong screenplay and fine lead actors.

...from an adult's perspective, I found the film lacking in the very creativity that its story line promotes.

The invented world is stolid, the logic of its relationship with reality muddled; but what really kills the film is the way it wears its uplift on its sleeve.

The kids are good; the effects are appalling.

Narnia fans might find some enjoyment in this children's fantasy adventure.

This is a horrible little movie, stupid and clunky and obnoxious through and through.

While it's admirable that Bridge to Terabithia isn't sugar-coated, more often than not it plays as miserabilism for kids.

The visual effects in 'Bridge to Terabithia' are underwhelming and prevent a magical cinematic experience.

Haphazardly adapted from Katherine Paterson's popular 1977 coming-of-age children's book, "Bridge to Terabithia" is a problematic movie held together by its charming child actors.

For all that Bridge to Terabithia does to encourage children to exercise their imaginations and pursue the arts, the movie's producers give only glimpses of the wonderful creatures and magical kingdom dreamed up by two children.

Any film celebrating the power of imagination is always welcome. Due to its rather pedestrian execution, however, The Bridge to Terabithia ultimately comes up short.
February 16, 2007
Has inspired moments but too often feels like an extended after-school special, albeit one with good production values.
February 16, 2007
Through computer-generated imagery, the imagination becomes literal, and in some sense, this feels like a robbery of what lives inside the heads of children.
February 16, 2007
Although this family flick is being sold as the second coming of The Chronicles Of Narnia or Lord Of The Ringsbe warned that advertising can be deceptive.
February 16, 2007
less of a liberal hippie preach-fest that the book was, but still needlessly depressing for a kids' movie
February 16, 2007
Follows in lock-step with the book and populates its titular fantasyland with CGI creatures... neither idea was very good.
February 15, 2007
Cheap and ordinary. This isn't art, it's product.
