Vampy's Movie Review on "Stardust"


I have decided to write a review about this movie Stardust cos my friends thought it is a boring movie. I suspect that it is due to lack of advertisement that alot of people who have not seen this movie thought it's going to be another cheesy fairy-tale stories which is not worth their RM10....And let me tell you that it is worth every penny you paid for!! I have the same initial thought but it turned out to be the best ever told fairy-tale movie for 2007!


The casting is brilliant. I've never seen Charlie Cox prior to this movie, but he not only looks hot in this movie, but he nails the lead role. Can't think of anybody better than him to play this role. You can really see the character metaphor from a naive young village boy who is obsess over Victoria (Sienna Miller) to a strong heroic man.... And boy check out when he has long hair. He won my heart over....

The plot will definitely leaves you wanting more (in a good way...ahem..), transporting you to a magical fantasy world! The pacing of this movie is excellent, never lagged and always keep you on toes with excitement. Overall, i was highly impressed by "Stardust" and would gladly see it again...





Let this movie put a smile back in your face, stars in your eyes and twinkle in your ears....

My final verdict of this movie:

4.5 Falling Stars (out of 5)

Re-watch value: EXTREMELY HIGH

Glad you like it. I must add that it's a Neil Gaiman adaptation. I am sure there are plenty of Gaiman's fans, even among the local readers. But the movie failed to sell is mainly because it's too "British".. Most British-esque movie usually don't do well in box-office. And usually too, critical acclaimed film is likely to end up super-flopped. I have long given up hope with the mass audience.
