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.

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.

There's nothing terribly wrong with Inkheart but it just doesn't quite engage us,"

There's a shortage of magic in this adventure fantasy, and despite some good elements including its spectacular Italian settings and a solid cast, this adaptation about storybook characters prised from their world, is a bit of a blot

This fantasy-lit film is too intense for young ones drawn to its books-come-to-life story and not sharp enough for Potter fans.

Last Action Hero for books. By proxy, it's also kind of The Purple Rose of Cairo for books, but it's not as good as either... It would really amuse me if it ended with the family deciding, after all this trouble, let's never read again.

Much less cringe-worthy, juvenile and bland than Bedtime Stories, it lacks the awe-inspiring thrills, brilliance and imagination that makes superior films like Harry Potter so exhilarating and unforgettable.

"...unconvincing characters and uncompelling action."

There are moments of absolute wonder to be had. Just not enough to make the film anything more than a painless misfire.

The ending needs to soar like a winged monkey, and instead it flops around like a landed fish.

A fantasy film intended as an adventure flick that requires this disclaimer: Do not operate heavy machinery after viewing.

Brendan Fraser needs to make a serious movie and get his career back in gear.
