Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Markus Zusak's enormously successful young-adult novel seems to have been adapted as a movie for middle-aged children.
Rotten: A tale of WWII Germany as seen through the eyes of a young girl, "The Book Thief" is unobjectionable, sentimental, and not a little dull.
Fresh: "The Book Thief" may not be perfect, but it may steal your heart.
Fresh: Pretty visuals give an unexpectedly painful twist to other parts of the story.
Go see it.
It's a great movie.
The movie is great and touches your heart
This movie brought me to tears not only the first time I saw it, but every time I saw it. The music is phenomenal and the actors are the best I've seen. This will be my favorite movie for a long, long time
