Unique and badly directed.

Offbeat live-action/animation mix with lots of drinking.

As a testament to its founder's legacy, this is still somewhat lesser Disney. But when viewed in combination for what passes as House of Mouse merriment today ...it's utterly brilliant.

An enchanting and humane fable.

Average Disney, a disappointment if you expect another 'Mary Poppins.'

Saddled with an absurdly overlong running time (128 minutes!) and a raft of forgettable songs...

The animation is much the best part of Pete's Dragon, a film not surfeited with great & timeless elements.

A horrid assault on the senses.

Another not very charming but harmless fusion of animation and good old real-life.

Boring, annoying and not funny, Pete's Dragon is one of the dullest films from Disney that I've ever seen.
August 19, 2009
In the overall realm of Disney magic, Pete's Dragon is a card trick rather than a grand illusion.

The film lacks the emotional complexity and classic status of previous Disney films.

The dragon itself grunts, grins and goofs around, but isn't half as appealing as its creators obviously hoped. More character and better animation would have helped.
