Movie Review: Stardust


Featuring: Charlie Cox, Sienna Miller, Peter O'Toole, Rupert Everett, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Claire Danes

Genre: fantasy, adventure, comedy, romance

Plot: young man goes after a fallen star to prove his love to the girl he’s courting

Acting: good, Cox is getting better surpassing his performance in Casanova, Pfeiffer does a great evil witch though a bit mellow at times, O’Toole is always good, De Niro is hilarious, unfortunately that steals the attention from the show, and I didn’t get what the hype is about Danes

Drama: the boy falls for the star, only that both witches and Princes are after her too

Action: chasing, swords fighting, boat riding, etc

Funny: yes, unfortunately… too funny, so much that it steals for the greatness of a movie that could have been fantastic, another Lord of the Rings even

Visuals: good, fitting the context, just not outstanding

Soundtrack: mesmerizing, not disturbing at all… Take That’s Rule the World hit rocks!

Comments: It might sound like I didn’t like it from what I wrote above, but I did. My only regret is that I have the feeling that it could have been more, better… and it isn’t. At times it feels like a combination between a fairytale and a parody and that I cannot accept. Don’t mess with my fairytales! They’re not yours to disrespect. Other that that it was fine, entertaining, okay…

Rating: 4/5
