what the others say

Radio Times

"Where this highly appealing comedy adventure really excels is with awesome visuals that rival Avatar's."

Time Out

"The characterisation remains disappointingly old fashioned and unoriginal. But the visuals are striking, the script sharp and well paced and it all wraps up with a breathtaking aerial battle sequence."

Film 4

"A fast-paced, funny adventure, offsetting its more grounded scenes with some breathtaking flights of fancy - and in an age when fundamentalism and secularism are constantly at war, it teaches children never simply to believe what they read."
