Critics reviews

Jim Henson was a genius but he had a limited range—his Saturday Night Live sketches were almost painfully unfunny, and this attempt at straightforward mythmaking pretty much flatlines apart from its typically impressive creature effects. That it was a box-office hit surprises me, frankly, as it’s seemingly too dark and grim for small children but unquestionably too earnest and simplistic for adults (or at least for the guy who gave up early on Winnie the Pooh).
