I'm not sure if "Labyrinth" is a film that will appeal to everyone, but if you are looking for a movie that will challenge as well as amaze, then this is the one to see.

Del Toro is a magnificent story teller and this labor of love is one of his many masterpieces.

A modern-day fable for the ages - one that will live in the hearts of all who see it for years to come.

Guillermo del Toro's brutal, breathtaking and magical finest hour is not kid-friendly.

Although Pan's Labyrinth ends in tragedy, it does so to show us that, regardless of what we are told, there are no happy endings in war.

This is a wildly creative film that plays on your heart and your head, stunning in its rich imagery and ambitious in its themes.

The film is one of those rare beasts, with a sense of genuine permanency. It beds down in your mind, like it is preparing to live there for a while. It is not pretty, but it is, sometimes, very beautiful.

...all the shivering intensity and satisfying denouement of the darkest Grimm's fairy tale.

Bewitchingly bonkers.

Pan's Labyrinth isn't a total success, but it confirms that del Toro is one of the few genuinely visionary directors working today. And his best may still be to come.

It's so audacious and so technically accomplished, and arrives here garlanded with so many radiant superlatives, that I wish I liked it more.

[del Toro's] creatures are just wondrous!
November 12, 2014
The story is a compelling and deeply involving one, and the film is both beautiful, exciting, and sometimes horrifying. The creature effects are superbly handled.
November 12, 2014
The cinematography and creature effects are terrific, while the subtitles never get in the way of the story which follows young girl Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) into a nether world which will test her to the limit with a series of dangerous tasks.

Haunting and visually spectacular, this Spanish fable is not a story for children so much as an illustration of the blurred line between reality and daydreams that manifests with such resonance in childhood.
November 12, 2014
In this magical and immensely moving film del Toro presents both the narrative strands as equally real, equally plausible.
November 12, 2014
This is an amazing work of cinema by any estimation, and is by far one of the most original and memorable films in recent memory.
November 12, 2014
It's less of a labyrinth than a forest path, one that takes you through wonderful scenery but doesn't lead anywhere.
November 12, 2014
We are never allowed to get truly lost in Pan's Labyrinth. The fantasy sequences are fetching when they should be intoxicating, while the scenes above ground are largely prosaic.
November 12, 2014
Watching the unique explosions of Guillermo del Toro's mind realise themselves on screen is truly astounding.
