    Nostalgia carries a lot of weight for this one, but the practical effects and fantastical design are still worth seeing.

    I love the labyrinth! It's one of the best movies I've ever seen. There's something wrong with someone that doesn't like The Labyrith

    It's Fragile Rock after an Acid Trip and it's really bizarre and has never been able to keep my interest. Jennifer Connelly is fantastic. It's somehow PG which is just insane for numerous reasons. What was Jim Henson on when this conceptualized? Final Score: 5/10

    Labyrinth has good special effects and very well produced animatronic puppets, David Bowie's performance is excellent.

    Definitely a weird one. Its worth it to at least see David Bowie's performance, and the very elaborate and masterfully created puppets and characters in this movie. The music will get stuck in your head and the storyline is odd, but its still one that you should see at least once.

    This is a fable like no other today.

    One of my all-time favourite movies - must have watched it around 20 times if not more. The combination of David Bowie's soundtrack and the film's general fantastical 80s charm really pulls it all together, even if the CGI and visual effects are a *little* dated. A trippy, coming-of-age film featuring an angsty Jennifer Connelly - who could ask for more?

    I have no idea how the BBFC felt it appropriate to attribute a U certificate to Labyrinth. Technically I suppose there are no obvious drug references or usage in the film, but that doesn't mean it doesn't feel like everyone involved had fallen off the wagon during the film making process. Fortunately, Labyrinth is tremendous fun, with yet another brilliant turn from David Bowie which does nothing to lower the hallucinogenic atmosphere. Written by Python Terry Jones, which goes some way to explaining the madness, Labyrinth is an eccentric, original and thoroughly enjoyable, if odd, fantasy experience.

    Probably my all time favourite movies. I probably watched it at least 25 x's at the theatre, bought the sound track album, bought it on VHS, DVD and Blueray. I still watch it at least 4 times a year. Made me a David Bowie fan.

    Fantastic modern fantasy adventure. The Henson puppets enhance the realism of the characters.
