“Basically a scene-by-scene remake, this movie is cool to look at, but fans will be frustrated with the unnecessary changes” – Mama’s Geeky.
“Even with the always reliable Tom Hanks like Geppetto, this new version of ‘Pinocchio’ ironically never comes to life” – Digital Spy.
“Several scenes catch our eye, including when Pinocchio and Geppetto are trapped inside the whale, and when Pinocchio is on Pleasure Island” – FlickDirect.
“With the exception of the spectacular Isle of Pleasures segment, this is a pretty dull movie” – ButteredPopcorn.
“A sweet and charming adaptation that breathes new life into the iconic tale and expands its narrative” – Dave Lee Down Under.
