Critics reviews

As if to prove Spielberg’s commitment to the realist spell of film over digital fun-house frenzy, it was also a tribute to old-fashioned filmic storytelling. The sweeping shots of a verdant English countryside might come from a child’s coloring book. Though some critics fell in love with the movie, it didn’t fare well commercially, and had a glossily packaged feel compared with the virtuosic puppet play.
