Critic Reviews for Once Upon a Time

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

The TV series version surely makes a lot more sense.

August 13, 2017 | Full Review…

A busy, precious epic of profoundly limited imagination, where it doesn't have a vision so much as a shiny color palette.

August 11, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's best not to attempt to fathom too much of what goes on in this colorful fantasy-adventure and simply take in its lushly shot and designed visuals, eye-popping effects, lively action and often lovely score.

The imaginative visuals upstage the battle scenes and amorous intrigues.

August 10, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The unquestioned eye-candy feast of 2017.
