    Movie synopsis
    Director Matthew Vaughn (LOCK, STOCK, AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS) takes his experience with credible crime capers and applies it to the fantasy genre in this charming but not too precious adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel. The many threads of the story intertwine seamlessly, unfolding at an unforced pace that complements the movie's magical special effects. Charlie Cox (CASANOVA) stars as Tristan, a somewhat bumbling shopkeeper's assistant in the sleepy English village of Wall, so named for the stone barrier that separates it from the magical realm of Stormhold. Tristan is in love with the beautiful, dismissive Victoria (Sienna Miller), who much prefers her other suitor, Humphrey (Henry Cavill), since he has traveled all the way to Ipswich to buy her an engagement ring. Tristan, in a last-ditch effort to win Victoria's affections, offers to bring her a fallen star they've just seen, and she agrees to marry him if he can deliver.Unbeknownst to Tristan, he is the product of his father's (Nathaniel Parker) sole excursion to Stormhold, where he had a tryst with a mysterious slave girl (Kate Magowan) who said she was a princess. As Tristan retraces his father's steps he discovers that the "star" is actually a beautiful young woman named Yvaine (Claire Danes) . A trio of witches, led by a delightfully wicked Michelle Pfeiffer, wants to capture Yvaine to cut out her heart and gain eternal youth, while the three remaining sons of the recently deceased king (Peter O'Toole) compete with one another to find the gem Yvaine wears around her neck. With special effects that never outshine the performances and a sweet story peppered with hints of Gaiman's dark sensibility, STARDUST is a truly enchanting fairy tale.

    Editorial reviews

    "STARDUST is a beguiling pastiche of storybook magic....It's deftly put together....It's the closest the movies have come in a while to the nudgy, knowing fairy-tale enchantment of THE PRINCESS BRIDE."
    Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (08/17/2007)

    "[A] refreshingly funny fairytale....The charming Danes shines brightest here."
    Box Office - Chad Greene (09/01/2007)

    3 stars out of 5 -- "A steady stream of star cameos buoy the narrative and Gaiman's source material is well served by the script writers..."
    Uncut - Michael Bonner (11/01/2007)

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Pfeiffer and Strong ensure the story boasts some great bad guys, and Vaughn certainly knows how to make it all look great."
    Empire - Dan Jolin (11/01/2007)

    "[L]ush and whimsical....Brimming with charm and CGI and full to bursting with Proppian folktale staples."
    Sight and Sound - Kate Stables (11/01/2007)

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]o full of unselfconscious fun and adventure that you can't help but be swept up by its charms..."
    Ultimate DVD - Chris Prince (10/01/2007)

    "Sophisticated in its execution, it is a movie that possesses a child's whimsical sense of wonder that propels the action, coupled with an adult sensibility that gives it emotional heft."
    Los Angeles Times - Kevin Crust (08/10/2007)

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here are enough witty touches to make it sparkle."
    Total Film - Total Film Staff (04/01/2008)

    An instant classic

    This particular film is one fantasy not-so-epic called Stardust.
    This is a classic case of a trailer that does not do the film justice. I have not read the book by Niel Gaiman, nor have I ever had an inclination to, but the movie held a slight degree of interest to me, mostly due to the CG work I saw in the trailer. Turns out the effects were not at all the proudest point the movie had going for it.
    It was dang funny.
    I haven't laughed as much (in honest amusement) at a fantasy film since I saw The Princess Bride for the first time. There are a great number of amusing lines and moments throughout the film that totally caught me off guard and charmed me to no end. Humorous lines come in the most unexpected places from the most unexpected people.
    But I'm getting ahead of myself.
    Tristan (played with wide-eyed vigor by Charlie Cox) is a young man, just entering adulthood, living in the British village of Wall--named so for the wall that separates it from the magical world next door. In a spur-of-the-moment romantic quest, Tristan finds himself thrown deep into the magical land (from whence he was born, it is established at the beginning of the movie) and right in the arms of a star (Claire Danes) who has just fallen from the sky. His goal is to return with her as a gift of betrothal to his "true love". Needless to say, the star, Yvaine, is reluctant, but needs a particular form of magical transportation Tristan has on his person to return to the heavens. An agreement is struck; that Yvaine will return to Wall with Tristan, provided he return her to the sky immediately thereafter. They set off on the journey back to England.
    Two other parties are interested in the star, however, for their own reasons. The witch, Lamia, (a gleefully wicked Michelle Pfeiffer) desires her heart, to attain prolonged life and power. The prince Septimus also wants the star--for the immortality--and the gem she carries--for the inheritance of the throne. These two pursue Tristan and Yvaine tirelessly across the land, water and sky (I'm serious, they really do trot around the sky for a while).
    Along the way, they meet a cleverly assembled cast of side-characters, including Ricky Gervais, and Robert DeNiro, as the secretly-wimpy pirate Cap'n Shakespeare. The movie is well-worth watching, if only for the ingenious fight sequence between Septimus' ilk and the pirate crew. DeNiro's performance is priceless, and perfectly indicative of his versatility as an actor.
    Matters come to a head, with all parties converging inevitably upon one another as they all draw nearer to Wall.
    The film is delightfully witty, and carries itself with a sort of tongue-in-cheek grace. It skims lightly along some sweet and profound elements, but keeps its sense of irreverent, ever-so-slightly-dark humor and never takes itself too seriously.
    Add some shiny special effects and a fantastic score by newcomer Ilan Eshkeri, and you've got a recipe for an instant classic.

    A Brilliant And Vibrant Fairy Tale !

    Tina saw the Special Preview Program of this film at the
    SDCC 2007 - San Diego Comic Con International.

    She thought it would be interesting to see this from the sneak
    preview they showed at the Con. However the film was released
    at a poor time. It should have been released during the Thanksgiving
    weekend or a better time slot, as it did not do well at the Box
    Offices.

    Fortunately it is now on DVD! The DVD captures the film and has
    actual good Bonus Features on it!

    The film lives up to the graphic novel it is adapted from. The film is based on Neil Gaiman's "Stardust" which is why he was at the Comic Con Program promoting the film!

    As for the main cast.... Charlie Cox, (a relatively unknown actor), is really good as Tristan, Claire Danes, (As the Falling Star), "shines", and of course Michelle Pfeiffer plays the evil witch next to perfection!

    The supporting cast was well chosen...each of the seven princes actually had some characterization! Peter O'Toole, (as the dying old King), is memorable in his short scenes. And what can we say about Robert DeNiro, who plays against 'type' in the film!

    If you missed out on this film at the Big Screens, then this is truly a brilliant and vibrant Fairy Tale to watch, and is good family viewing. Only some 'fantasy violence' and 'risque humour' make a PG-13 rating.

    STARDUST (DVD, 2007, WIDESCREEN)

    This is a fantastic movie! Something for everyone! It has action, adventure, suspense, fantasy, and even romance! Robert DeNiro like I've NEVER seen him! As you've read from the details of what the movie is about young Tristan sets out to bring back his beloved Victoria (Sienna Miller) a shooting star (Claire Danes), but that's just it, he doesn't realize the star is actually a young woman! With obstacles in his way: 2 princes vying for the throne and an evil witch (Michelle Pfiefer) he must find a way to save the star! Stormhold is a hidden town beyond the town of Wall (England). There's a little old man about 97 that guards the Wall. You see no one is supposed to cross from either side. Luckily this movie gives you an alternate ending, because we actually preferred the alternate version. No foul language or nudity so the whole family can watch it! This is a movie you can watch again and again. I highly recommend it!

    A Fairytale For The Adults!

    This is a great Once Upon a time story for all grownups..the violence and mild language may be too much for the wee ones..so I do not recommend this for any children under the age of 13..Movie begins with a young Man setting out to cross a forbidden border he succeeds and meets up with a young beautiful Girl claiming to be a Princess held hostage by an evil witch..they enjoy time spent together and he returns home..9 mos. later he receives an unexpected package and his life is forever changed..Michelle Pfeiffer(sp?) and Robert Deniro are hysterical in their roles..Claire Danes made a sweet and refreshing star by the way stars appear to have a temper..this film is a fun mixture of comedy, very light suspense, and of course love that will have everyone smiling by it's end!! Don't miss this one!!

    Stardust - surprising

    My son brought STARDUST home amongst a bunch of rentals one evening, and we watched them over the span of a few evenings. STARDUST was one of the last ones we watched. Shoulda watched it sooner.

    It was surprisingly well done. The effects were well-executed. STARDUST is solidly in the fantasy genre, but its dialogue -- like a Looney Tune -- rapidly establishes that it is not kiddie fare. That and its wittiness quickly snagged this hardcore scifi fan's interest.

    The casting, with big names "stars" doing character roles instead of "Starring" roles, was intriguing, especially Robert DeNiro. NEVER saw THAT one before he brought it out!

    The movie's seamless flow actually caused me to wonder about whomever it was that came up with its words. Discovered it was written by the same dude who came up with the words for MIRRORMASK.

    Though MIRRORMASK did not snag my imagination so thoroughly as STARDUST, its events and dialogue did display Neil Gaiman's unique take on the world of words. Think maybe I need to start checking out eBay's book listings for STARDUST.

    Maybe it's a keeper, too.
