Review: Stardust (

Date: Thursday, August 02, 2007

"Diverting and pleasurable to watch, 'Stardust,' a tongue-in-cheek sword-and-sorcerers romp bolstered by a top-flight cast, is most adroit when it plays the fantasy straight rather than sending up the genre. Adapting Neil Gaiman's novel, director Matthew Vaughn -- who wrote the script with Jane Goldman -- takes a sharp turn from his directorial debut, the slick neo-noir 'Layer Cake,' and displays a similar visual panache while working a completely different realm."
