I just wrote a big huge comment that was at least 2 pages long with quotes and everything and I lost it somehow and I'm not rewriting it. All in all, it was very good I give it 5/5. ^_^

One of the key movies of my childhood, this film was ahead of it's time in practical effects. Charming and funny, I am not surprised that it has endured as it has.

I can see how this becomes a cult classic. Pretty amazing, technically, though, the soundtrack doesn't hold up as well. But that's maybe just me. Overall, this is a really fun watch. Reminds me why I still miss Jim.

"Labyrinth" is by far one of my favourite movies. If you are looking for a good movie to watch, this is the one.

"Labyrinth" is a slice of that seventies show, even though it was released in the eighties... but in defense , I really feel everyone should give this fantasy flick a chance. david bowie and the young gal, jennifer connelly, really put there hearts into this thing. Enjoy

The creativity of the late Muppet creator Jim Henson was groundbreaking. He's reached out to millions of children over the years with his impressive array of fuzzy creatures. Hence, I do not want my review to be misconstrued as unappreciative of that facet of the movie. The pre-CGI effects were remarkable, and most likely exhausting to manufacture and operate. I particularly enjoyed the "Helping Hands", and the ingenuity of the M. C. Escher staircase maze. The storyline itself, however, was boring. Just plain dull and juvenile. Perhaps if I had seen this as a kid, it would have some sentimental value. I didn't. It doesn't. Bowie is hugely overrated. He's a talentless fraud and he just about ruined the film for me. Jennifer Connelly's cuteness balanced things out, though. Oh well, I had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately I feel 2½ stars is generous.

David Bowie is a well-known singer. Don't expect this movie to show any of it. He performs very well in this fantasy movie. With many puppets a la Henson's and the talents of the actors, the fairy tale is quite vivid and enchanting from start to end. When it first came out I bought this DVD just because of the curiosity about Bowie as a movie actor. My whole family likes it very much. My children, now getting of matching it too many time, they let me watching it alone. I am still enjoy watching it again and again.

People who like this movie may want to watch "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen", "Peter Pan" (2006 Universal Studios), "The Chronicles Of Narnia - Prince Caspian" and "Alice In Wonderland" (Johnny Depp).

Coarse Language: Minor swearing only. Rated PG more for the scary images/goblins, I would think.
