Movie Reviews

  • wildly fresh and imaginative; Every frame of the film is excitingly alive and freshly conceived, making it something very much worth seeing on the big screen
    by Todd McCarthy [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • what you take away from "Wendy", however, is that Benh Zeitlin's talent to soar cinematically remains intact. He can transport you to a fantastical world without the benefit of massive CG effects or a massive set on a gigantic soundstage
    Review rate : B by Gregory Ellwood [The Playlist ]
  • though the film contains some mesmerising visuals, the story does not correspond to the magical images on screen; there is something significant and emotional is unfolding, but the film falls flat time and again. It's a slow build-up to nothing
    by Dilara Elbir [Little White Lies ]
  • there is something beautifully all-ages about the movie's kaleidoscopic score and firefly glow, but by the ninth montage of cliffs and shore and joyful screaming down a hill, it all starts to feel a little like a film-school reel
    Review rate : B- by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • expanding on the source material while solidifying Zeitlin's homegrown motifs, "Wendy" provides the kind of alternate approach to Disneyfied storytelling that heightens its cinematic potential with delicate and often compelling results
    Review rate : B+ by Eric Kohn [IndieWire ]
  • by pulling the Peter Pan story apart and challenging its well worn plot points, "Wendy" gives the story fresh life for a new generation
    Review rate : A- by Matt Goldberg [Collider ]
  • "Wendy" is undoubtedly self-assured and in-your-face, and the gorgeous location photography certainly has an impact. But it's wrecked by chapters so lengthy they become simply excruciating
    2 of 5 by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian ]
