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

A great version of Gaiman's book. Not 100% true to it but still a great film to watch and feel good about.Published 5 days ago by Xyalon
Truly amazing film.
Really one hell of the greatest movies ever made!
I thought it would be a good idea to read the book, watch the video a few days later and then review both versions of the fairy tale. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Terry D
