REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a convoluted, enjoyable, very mad, deeply conservative and, at one moment, horribly violent extravaganza..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..delivers the year's biggest and most ambitious fantasy..”
by Jack Mathews [NY Daily News]
“..There just seems to be ever such a lot missing, and this is ultimately what lets the film down..”
by David Mercier [FilmJudge]
