Movie Info

To win the heart of his beloved (Sienna Miller), a young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) ventures into the realm of fairies to retrieve a fallen star. What Tristan finds, however, is not a chunk of space rock, but a woman (Claire Danes) named Yvaine. Yvaine is in great danger, for the king's sons need her powers to secure the throne, and an evil witch (Michelle Pfeiffer) wants to use her to achieve eternal youth and beauty.

    Is it weird that the one thing that really sticks out about Stardust is that one of the small subplots involves Daredevil and Superman getting into an argument? Well, I guess that's not entirely the case, but a young Charlie Cox and Henry Cavill essentially fighting each other probably would have been more than enough to please me. Stardust is far more than a simple love story or fairy tale, it's irreverent and oozing with genre fun. Oh and you also have an extraordinarily gifted cast across the board. Films aren't really made like this anymore. It's so hard to come by a big budgeted/genre film with a lighthearted tone and with this type of humor. You could see it on TV, or perhaps in the 1980's, but good fantasy films are so disappointingly rare these days. The closest could perhaps be something like the Kingsman movies (which Matthew Vaughn also directed), but even those could just be labeled as success due to comic-book background. But the pure fantasy adventure is surely something cinema's could use a little bit more of these days. If movies can get actors like Robert De Niro to do some of the ridiculous things he does in this movie, then I think we have a winning formula. But in all seriousness, Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Michele Pfeiffer, Henry Cavill, De Niro, and Sienna Miller make for a fantastic ensemble cast of witches, Kings, a star (?), and one special prince to make for a thrilling adventure. 7.6/10

    Wasn't expecting much from this film but ended up loving it, Great cast and story and very well done but the ending was a big let down though but kids will like it and it also appeals to the adult audience too.

    When fantasy is done right it can be truly amazing. Unfortunately, "Stardust" falls victim to bad visuals and a silly story. I actually didn't finish watching this because I was so incredibly bored by the uninteresting plot, subplots, and characters. So yes, the credibility of this review is lost because I didn't watch the entire film; what I did see is mostly terrible.

    Stardust is an enchanted fantasy adventure from director Matthew Vaughn. Based on the beloved novel, when a star falls to Earth in the magical kingdom of Stormhold, a race to recover it begins between the sons of the dying king, an evil witch, and a love-struck peasant. The film has an all-star cast that includes Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sienna Miller, and Robert De Niro; who all give good performances. The sets and special effects create an interesting and vivid world that enhances the story and the adventure. Additionally, Ilan Eshkeri provides a strong score that gives the film a lot of energy and mystique. Stardust is a magical tale full of thrills and excitement.
