Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: I have seen the future of 3-D moviemaking, and it belongs to Martin Scorsese, unlikely as that may sound. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Nov 24, 2011

Fresh: Being a hardcore cinephile (like Scorsese) might add a layer of enjoyment, but it certainly isn't a prerequisite for walking in the door. A sense of wonder, however, is. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Jan 3, 2012

Fresh: It's a fairy tale for mature viewers, but the airy exterior hides emotional depth. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Nov 24, 2011

Fresh: Scorsese transforms this innocent tale into an ardent love letter to the cinema and a moving plea for film preservation. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Dec 1, 2011

Read the book watched the movie so awesome!!!! Love it


Great Movie!!!

big and sorta beautiful

In 3D I think it would have been worse. For a kid who was living secretly, he never ever shut a door behind him. It was like bad animation. stiff.
Don't quite understand all the high reviews. Maybe I'm jaded. Lots of rushing around beautiful sets with fake suspense. Emotional depth? you're kidding me? not that they didn't try, mind you.
