Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A movie that should've been made shortly after its source material -- Susan Cooper's Newbery winner -- debuted in 1973. As is, it feels entirely too generic to work today. – Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The movie ultimately emerges as a lackluster tale of teenage empowerment and doesn't fully conjure the requisite sense of magical escape necessary to truly captivate and immerse us in the tale. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 6, 2007

Rotten: Cooper presented this rather basic good/evil mythos in more low-key, atmospheric form than the film allows, leaving thesps (particularly McShane) having to poker-face their way through lines like, 'The future of the human race rests on you!' – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Ludwig, a relative unknown with some TV and film experience, is awfully cute, but lacks the needed gravitas and charm to turn Will into more than a caricature. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 9, 2007
