Just saw this on DVD. I loved the visuals, effects and such. The story was a bit lame, boring and dragging. Much time was wasted with the secondary plot, in my opinion. Overall, I though the movie was mediocre, nothing too great. Above the average, then compared to the garbage that is infesting mainstream cinema today , but that doesn’t say much.

Pan's Labyrinth. I recently brought it on DVD, it's an excellent film despite it being in Spanish. Graphics are great, along with the storyline and characters - definitely worth the money!

SO yeah...........I rarely purchase a movie and not like it though, I'm pretty good and knowing what I like by seeing the Trailers and reading reviews and all that jazz.

This just happens to be one of those exceptions.

I'm kind of ashamed to admit it, but I also didn't realize this movie was in Spanish.

I've yet to watch the special features, I'll do that soon.

What I find interesting is that the direct said this movie "Nearly Killed Him" and so much went into it.

Considering how little special affects was in it and how it was basically a movie set in reality for the most part like other movies, I don't see how this movie could have been any more harder to make than any other movie. I don't see how it could have "KILLED" him to make this movie.

Anata wa wakarimasu ka.....


Not knowing the exact reason why he said that doesnt entirely mean that it wasnt hard to make.

Special effects doesnt exactly mean just CGI, it could mean the the building of sets.

Or he could be refering to the stress of making this movie and I can understand why. He just came off making two successful movies in Blade 2 and Hellboy and then he made this. Something completely different and in Spanish. That's pretty big.
Also could be that he got alot of flak from producers and people complaining about how this movie is pretty intense and violent with alot of mature scenes...but it looks and plays like an fantasy kids book.

I just saw it and I can say it was "good." I wouldn't put it in my favorite movies or anything-but I wasn't bored at anytime during the movie.

Yeah, I wish she had done more tasks or something because that's what I thought the movie was going to mainly about. That's what I was expecting and wanted.

Frightening, sad, heartwarming and gruesome. Awesome stuff.


Seconded.

I bought the DVD yesterday, and I was very pleased with my purchase after experiencing this wonderful movie.

The wine bottle in the face ruined the movie for me. Most violent thing i've ever seen on film.

I thought this movie was overrated. Some cool visuals, but not particularly interesting otherwise. The fascists were exaggerated cliches, I thought, which was annoying. But then again, I saw this when I was, let's just say... intoxicated with a particular substance (however, had I not been, I don't think it would have changed my opinion). And everyone raving about it probably raised my expectations..
