The basic plot is as convoluted and faulty as time travel, and without very finite ground rules, the details and conclusion feel contrived.

Brendan Fraser does his usual fine job here, though it's hard not to feel like perhaps he's done one too many family films in such a short span.

It may not be the most breathlessly exciting film out there, but for the young audience for which it's intended, Inkheart is an intelligent, charming and well-rounded old-school adventure.

While the film does a serviceable job staying true to Funke's vision, it never manages to capture the magic of her written words.

Cobbled-together fantasy about a dad who can "read" characters in and out of books.

Kind of a NeverEnding Story-lite, Inkheart never makes full use of its strengths. The ideas about reality and fiction have already been explored better elsewhere, even in light family films.

Brendan Fraser's boyish face usually oozes charisma, but here he just looks plain bored. Which is kind of how the audience looked too.

If there's a problem for me with Inkheart, it is one of scope. This feels like it should be an epic movie, but it's not.

For all its problems, it's a sweet, clever work.

When you have to question every other scene and a ferret steals the show, you know you're in trouble.

As far as movies based on books about books go, it's anything but a pageturner.

Readers who want to exercise their imaginations may prefer to stick to the written word. If a story gets boring, you can always skip a few pages and move on. In the cinema there isn't much choice.

The message is so muddied by the film's dizzying changes in pitch and tone that a lot of young readers aren't going to know what to think.

Una aventura entretenida sobre todo para público adolescente, y para todo aquel que haya disfrutado alguna vez de un buen libro de fantasía.

Gaping plot holes aside, Inkheart is a lovely little film, aimed at the bookish among us, and peppered with a love of the literary.

It's a familiar tale, but one told with gusto, wit and visual flare...
April 3, 2009
A diverting excursion into fantasy gothic territory.

This adventure-fantasy film doesn't have the special effects depth of a Lord Of The Rings movie, nor the charm of the Harry Potter franchise, but it is still quite enjoyable.
