O que se diz lá fora acerca de THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES:
«A well-crafted family thriller that is truly scary and doesn't wimp out.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«There's enough here to keep adults engaged, which is an important component of any motion picture that wants to be known as 'family entertainment.' I would place THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES comfortably in that category.»
James Berardinelli, ReelViews.
«A work of both modest enchantment and enchanting modesty, grounded in a classically Spielbergian realm where childlike wonderment crosses paths with the tough realities of young adulthood.»
Justin Chang, Variety.
«An enjoyable adventure fantasy that pushes all the requisite buttons while still managing to throw in a pleasant surprise or two, Paramount's big-budget gamble has impressive talent to burn on both sides of the camera.»
Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter.
«SPIDERWICK is set in the present, but goes for an overall design look of dainty, cozy, William Morris-y arts-and-craftiness. »
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.
