May 27, 2020
Xanadu offers a wealth of special effects entrancingly strung out along a rather impoverished screenplay.

The excessive effects and music are the main protagonists in this story where the best part is the choreography. [Full Review in Spanish]

Engagingly surrealistic in a pop-glitter way.

Look at Xanadu with an eye toward storytelling superiority and your head will explode. To appreciate the madness within, one must take in the blinding neon sights with an open heart and at least one nostril-coating line of cocaine.

While the movie is every bit as garish and overly shellacked as the other bomb musicals of its era, at least this one looks like irresponsible amounts of money were thrown around.

Conventional wisdom decrees that Xanadu is a horrible film. In a sense, conventional wisdom may be correct, but it ignores one key ingredient: viewed in the right frame of mind, this movie can be a lot of fun.

Semi-Gloss Newton-John, Gene Kelly fantasy musical is dated, but kind of fun.

Kooky abandon and unembarassed chutzpah make it a movie nobody dared to love

Yeah, there are musicals with more panache and brainpower. You can keep 'em! For me, I want to see Olivia Newton-John spinning about on roller skates.

There's never been a movie quite like this, and there never will be again. And that may not be a bad thing.
