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.

A diverting excursion into fantasy gothic territory.

The main attractions are the Serious British Thespians cutting loose and having fun while still displaying convincing commitment to the fanciful material.

If you can ignore Fraser and his trademark lumpishness, Inkheart is imaginative and entertaining.

Inkheart has an engaging premise in its notion of a Silvertongue and a refreshing love of books.

Any grown-ups deputized to accompany kids to this picture should find the usual watch-checking squirm factor to be surprisingly minimal.
