Stardust mixes in romance and adventure, all in a fantasy movie guise, as it follows Tristan on his quest to retrieve a fallen star for the beautiful Victoria. Only it soon becomes clear that theres a lot more going on as Tristan makes his journey (not least a companion more diverting than the aforementioned Victoria). Michelle Pfeiffer, for instance, returns to high profile movie making (after quite a break) in the role of the evil witch, while theres space too for Robert De Niros pirate and an odd cameo from Ricky Gervais.
Seemingly one of a wealth of family films that made it out of the blocks off the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Stardust doesnt quite hit those heights, but it has quite a sporting go. Its an uneven tale, albeit one told with enough passion and enthusiasm to encourage you to cut it some slack. And when it gets to the end of the last reel, its hard to feel shortchanged by what youve just seen.
For while Stardust has problems, it also has laughs, adventure, action and a whole lot in its corner to recommend it. And it is worth your time and attention. --Jon Foster

Such a lovely film. I don't understand why it was not hyped more when it first came out.Published 29 days ago by June McA (Surrey)
It's just such daft fun, especially when Robert Di Niro gets going (you know, the private dance, lol).Published 1 month ago by Wiss
