Welcome to Marwen, though highly imperfect, is the film of an immoderate, quixotic commercial artist, full of risk and failure, with a tin-ear to what constitutes popular appeal, and shot through with passages of perplexing power and grace.

Zemeckis attempts to move audiences, but does so with a forced tone and an exaggerated melodrama. [Full Review in Spanish]

Zemekis is especially skilled at the alchemy between digital entertainment and creating a portrait of a man struggling with his demons. [Full Review in Spanish]

One wonders if Zemeckis knows what kind of story he is telling. [Full review in Spanish]

Since Welcome to Marwen plays like a car accident, you simply have to watch no matter what horrifying image is lurking just around the bend.

Welcome to Marwen doesn't fix Mark, but instead chooses to focus on one massive battle in his life.

With Welcome to Marwen, director Robert Zemeckis, as he has so often in this stage of career, focuses more on the visuals of a story instead of the why of it.

I found this touching, a very good exploration of the power of art and imagination in working through trauma.

An extraordinary mix of technical wizardry and empathetic storytelling.

Visually stunning and anchored by a consummately textured performance by Carell, Welcome to Marwen is an intriguing and original drama looking at pain, guilt and the healing power of art.

The partnership between Zemeckis and Carell is ... what keeps Welcome to Marwen from falling off its own high wire-and finally brings the movie home.

Might be a shallow, even irresponsible biography, but it's a pretty impressive technical exercise. The individual view can decide for themselves whether this is good enough.

...a cinematic mini-landmark.

Though Carell gives a fine performance, the part needed someone more complex, less obvious. A Jim Carrey, maybe, someone to give it an edge. What we get instead is a mushy, softly rounded retelling of a jagged tale best told straight.

True to form, Zemeckis's film is often a joy to behold - but the climax is undeniably disappointing with a script and editing that's too disjointed; it needed a lighter touch.

Whilst it's pretty much a write-off across the board, the ambition should be applauded.

Robert Zemeckis' creepy PTSD fantasy-land that's too full of campy artifice to be effective.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Carell is superb and the film has some really emotional moments but Welcome to Marwen is ultimately unsatisfying.

Maybe Zemeckis is to blame, for trying to sanitise and sentimentalise mental illness. Then again, what can we expect from the man who brought us Forrest Gump?
