      The film was always wonderful, featuring clever conceits plus perfect looking cast members and locations.

      Full Review | Aug 11, 2021

      As the picture practically spoofs the endeavors of Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn, it's also competent enough to craft its own identity as a swashbuckling thriller.

      Its well-developed characters and situations take us back to the literary myths of the genre as well as the language of classic cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]

      ...a lavish studio spectacle...

      Full Review | Original Score: 9/10 | Dec 29, 2018

      One of the all-time great fantasy movies, channelling both a rollicking spirit of adventure and genuinely uplifting humour all ages can appreciate.

      Mandy Patinkin, an actor not known for humor, is particularly wonderful as Inigo, a Spaniard out to avenge the death of his father at the hands...

      It manages to be both tongue-in-cheek and achingly sincere.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/5 | Dec 9, 2017

      The Princess Bride is a worthy descendant to the Fractured Fairytales of yore. The characters -- both real and imaginary -- give every frame of The Princess Bride its own magic mirth.
