Movie is not great but not bad


It has some great visuals and puppetry, the story is simple. You could say it is a rendition of Alice in wonderland or the wizard of Oz. I just find the premise a bit too straight forward, maybe I would have liked it if I watched it as a child opposed to watching it yesterday as a 35 y old man.

Yeeaah, I don't think it was made for 35 year old men, haha. As a 35 year old man, you can see why a child would love it?

Yes because I remember liking Alice in wonderland when I was a child and that movie is not strong on plot either. When you're a kid all you want is colorful visuals a colorful bad guy and colorful good guys or girls. Labyrinth has some pretty great visuals and yes you can tell a lot of it is fake sets and muppets buy a kid would like it.
