Critic Reviews of "The Dark Crystal"Minneapolis Star TribuneJuly 07, 2005
You have to love a fantasy whose greatest peril is the Bog of Eternal Stench.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
The screenplay by David Odell, based on a story by Mr. Henson, is without any narrative drive whatever. It's without charm as well as interest.Eye for FilmMay 26, 2015
The Skeksis, evil creatures seeking to solidify their power, retain their ability to frighten young children, and no amount of exposure to modern media seems adequate as a defence.Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
A fantastic, but more intense Muppet adventure.Urban CinefileMay 23, 2008
A wonderfully invented world full of characters that transcend their puppet limitations thanks to the energy and creativity of the Jim Hansen and Frank Oz team of puppeteers and voice actorsDecent Films GuideSeptember 21, 2007
A distant, uninvolving experience … characters and emotions, even by the archetypal standards of high fantasy, never come to life, and the overarching mythology seems too self-consciously contrived.Groucho ReviewsAugust 14, 2007
An extraordinary, often mesmerizing achievement of design and performance that's held back by an underdeveloped script and a milquetoast leading character.DVDTalk.comJuly 30, 2007
Crystal is a miraculous rush of innovation and storytelling patience, and, in the last 25 years, the film has grown from a 1982 misfire, to a cult wonder, to a bona-fide classic that's timeless in stature and masterful in execution.DVD ClinicNovember 15, 2006
Points to the Henson team for trying to broaden the scope of their creatures -- and there's little denying that this particular flick still seems to hold up pretty darn well.Cinema em CenaJanuary 08, 2006
Os personagens são bem realizados e animados, mas o roteiro, além de plagiar O Senhor dos Anéis, é burocrático e pouco envolvente.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)October 12, 2005
This ersatz Tolkien with puppets looks and plays like ersatz Tolkien with puppets.Reno Gazette-JournalJune 03, 2004
Comes off as an overblown puppet show.
