My Review

Source Material: Original:
Dennis Lee (story) and Jim Henson (story).

Acting and Dialogue: C:Bad acting and cheesy lines but then their is some prestige because there could be up to five performers simultaneously woring together to make one character come to life.

Art Direction: A+: The artistry in the film is amazing.

Cinematography: B+: Many beautiful shoots

Direction: C:
Jim Henson is great with puppeteers but horrible with actors.

Sound and Music: C: I hate the
David Bowie promotional aspect of the film.

VFX: B: I love how this film draw most of the VFX from art and puppetry

Overall: B-:Technology this film is beautiful and amazing so I say watch it for those aspects but with the lame story and sound track you might reconsider. Find a better 80's fantasy.
