  • Nina Darnton

    Labyrinth, a fabulous film about a young girl's journey into womanhood that uses futuristic technology to illuminate a mythic-style tale, is in many ways a remarkable achievement.

    Labyrinth packs enough surprises to captivate an audience of children and provides enough wisecracking to keep adults laughing.

    Fabulous fantasy from the godfather of modern puppetry Jim Henson.

  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    George Lucas produced and Jim Henson (of Muppets fame) directed this heftily budgeted 1986 fantasy, which seems to be a conscious attempt to play on the female coming-of-age themes of classic fairy tales.

  • Roger Ebert

    Great energy and creativity went into the construction, production and direction of this movie, but it doesn't have a story that does justice to the production.

  • Richard Corliss

    With their technical astonishments, Director Henson and Executive Producer Lucas have been faithful to the pioneering Disney spirit. In suggesting the thrilling dilemmas that await a wise child, they have flown worlds beyond Walt. [7 July 1986, p.65]
