Not what it says on the tin
What a con, I thought this film was meant to be an adult fairy tale. I expected a sort of adult version of Alice in Wonder Land, what I got was a bleak and violent war drama. The fantasy in this film is basically a side issue; her being in the fantasy world must only take 20mins screen time. The rest is just sadistic rubbish, I don't mind violence in films, but some of the scenes in this film are sickening and unnecessary. The bit when the captain smashes the bottle repeatedly into the guys face was horrific.

I really do not know what this film tried to be, it was like two films put together, neither film adding anything to the other. The film spent too much time showing what a sadistic thug the captain was and not enough time on the supposed fantasy of the film.

I cannot believe this film got rated so high, for me it was a major disappointment. Avoid it.
Alice in Labyrinth
This fairy tale with parallels to "Alice in Wonderland" has a little girl encountering bizarre characters in an alternate universe. The cinematography is quite impressive and del Toro displays a fine visual flair. However, the script is too random and contrived to be interesting and the characters are one-dimensional. The captain, for example, is pure evil, lacking a single redeeming character; his wife is a whiny weakling. The film intersperses the fairy tale with the account of the fascist army fighting insurgents, but the two threads don't complement each other. It's like watching two movies. del Toro's obsession with stomach-churning violence doesn't help matters.
Truly Gripping, Magical and Unexpectingly Brutal
Pan's Labyrinth is a truly gripping film. It shows the difference in class between the peasant resistance and the fascist military. It's a great blend of action and drama whilst managing to stay interesting to the audience. It combines history, fantasy, politics and a story into 2 hours of enthralling film. The setting is magical and transports you into a world of mystical delight.

The costume and make up team really out do themselves, making the mythical creature of a Faun look real. It's not CGI or some animations; they took the time and effort to make a Greek god, only seen in paintings into a real life being.

The Performance by Ivana Baquero is brilliant, especially as she was only 11 or 12 at the time. She has to act with CGI; she has to act scared, sad, happy, relieved and surprised. With such little experience puts on an incredible show. Also, the performance of Sergi Lopez is amazing. From the first time we meet him to the last he keeps his character, a character which is always by the book, cold hearted and emotionless, even towards a child.

Before watching the film I expected a corny story with poor performance by the lead child actor. But I couldn't have been more wrong. Even though it's sounds all cheesy story, it's actually quite dark, brutal and thrilling. There's unexpected violence completely out of nowhere that surprises the audience and gives a true insight into what the character are like early on.

Overall, Pan's Labyrinth is a must see block buster. Please do not discriminate it as it's foreign with subtitles, after a few minutes your used to it and hooked on its riveting tale.
Fascinating, but politically crude
This is an oddly fascinating film, which drew me in, notwithstanding some strange bits--the rather unconvincing but artful faun, for example.

The politics bothered me. The Franquistas are displayed as unremittingly evil caricatures, the guerrillas as noble peasant types. Anyone who reads the history of the Spanish Civil War objectively has to know that it wasn't that simple.

We get a hint of that in the end when the guerrillas go around giving the coup de grace to the dying soldiers. This, however, is deemphasized, while the viciousness of the Captain and his men is graphically displayed.

It's also odd that a film that sympathizes with an anti-religious politics resorts to a fantasy world of immortality. So much for dialectical materialism, I guess.
I get annoyed at movies that preach one thing and are themselves another.

The story here has two components, a real and fantasy thread. The real world thread is simple. By that I mean there are no dramatic complications at all. The characters are theatrical cartoons. The situation starts out brutally and stays that way without any arc, development, evolution. It is in fact a formula movie, this thread, and one that follows a formula that is based on strict, strict boundaries. One would suspect it was written by a German, it is so regimented. One would almost believe it to be written by "The Captain," the bad guy here.

It marches. Its unambiguous. Its final and brutal in its morality, just as the Captian is. There are only good and bad people and the bad are not only very, very bad but they get their deserts. Justice isn't nuanced here. In fact nothing at all is.

I suppose people celebrate it for its fantasy thread. Yes, the effects are good. Yes the creepy eyeless man was creepy. Yes the Tinkerbells were Tinkerbelly. But is this in any way better than "Dark Crystal," which was similarly banal in its cosmology?

Look, I'm one of the ones who get depressed at things like "The Matrix," but if lacking in imagination, is copying was deep, complex, manylayered. This is something that Franco would have written, and little fascist parents would have trotted to, because its all about absolutes and the inability of humans to be rich, subtle, varied beings.The best we can do, is be "innocent."

I often can see some good in any film. But not this one. The world is too close to intolerant extremism as it is. Don't feed it by supporting this.

Ted's Evaluation -- 1 of 3: You can find something better to do with this part of your life.
Does not tell a story
This movie suffers from a very poor script based on a fabulous idea. The real story is Ofelia finding out who she is and gaining access to the fantasy world. Sadly, only about 15 minutes of the film is about this story. The rest of the time is spent convincing the audience that The Captain is an evil, horrific person. Um, yeah, you made that clear in his first two scenes. The audience gets it - he's BAD. What at all does the captain or the underground resistance have to do with progressing the real story of Ofelia completing her tasks to become a princess? Simply ridiculous that 75-80% of the script is spent on the non-story. A brilliant core plot gone to waste.

The movie does have great cinematography and acting, but none of that is any good when you have a bad script.
What Fantasy Movies Should Be
There are few fantasy films that are able to so convincingly build such an awe-inspiring, enrapturing world in the span of one movie; Pan's Labyrinth is one of those films.

Almost to the point of perfection, Del Toro is able to masterfully craft a combination of fantasy, horror, war, and mystic elements together. I don't think I've really ever seen another movie I could compare this one to. It has such an odd, off-pace feel to it that even now I'm having trouble describing it. More fantasy movies should aspire to be in the realm of Pan's Labyrinth.

What does the ending of this movie tell us? Is it a religious allegory? Is this all about war and being a martyr? Or is it just telling us the story of a girl whose imagination allowed her to escape her brutal surroundings for a while? However you interpret it, I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did.
Gillermo del Toro maybe best product as yet!
Now to be perfectly honest with you ,dear reader, I am a HUGE fan of del Toro films, with the Hellboy movies been among my favorites superhero and fantasy movies and Pacific Rim the best flick about giant robots since Iron Giant, so yes I genuinely believe he is a great director, writer and producer. And as far as I see it his best work as yet this one Pan's Labyrinth one of the most beautiful, atmospheric and captivating film I have ever seen in my life.

The story takes place in Spain after the Civil War of 1936 to 1939 and follows the young bookish girl Ofelia ,who goes with her pregnant mother to a military camp under to control of her step-father, the general and commander of that place and one of the most cruel, arrogant and sadistic villain in movie history, who could give Ramsay Bolton a run for his money. During her stay at each opportunity she has, escapes in to a fantasy world that is just around her corner and confronts creatures that are both amazing to look at and totally terrifying. The movie also gives time to the rebel group that is hunted down by the Franco forces and their tries to survive and beat back the fascist in the camp.

The contrast between the fantasy world that we among side Ofelia explore and the real one is close to perfect for we see both similarities and differences. To elaborate on that this contrast makes it impossible to see these two worlds separated for when you look closely you find out that in their structures and designs have some parallels that are too go to spoil you have to see them yourself.

Another great thing about the flick is that the story feels like a fairy tail, but isn't like those we all know like Snow White and the seven dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty , the Little Mermaid and so on. For del Toro turn the model of the classic fairy tails complete on its head and gives you a story which feels both realistic in plot, out of this world when it comes to the fantasy elements, which looks as they were the child for a beautiful dream with a horrifying nightmare and you want to look over and stare at it at the same time.

As for the acting, is perfect with Ivana Baquero that plays Ofelia been so good that for a while I forgot that she was acting, Doug Jones as the titled Pan as is usual for him been in to the character( literally) and the rest of the cast having their time to shine.

For anyone who likes creature feature, fantasy, the fairy tails with a twist or in general good movies is a must watch, like now. And to close with a warning, it is not a film for children, not at all ,it is for a more mature audience ,so if you want to watch it with your kid, young nephew or niece ,do it as your own digression.
Wasn't that into it
I had high expectations for this movie. It was impressive as far as the work that went into it, but I didn't enjoy the story that much. I liked the symbolism and I appreciated the fact that everything had a purpose-- every visual, every line of dialog had something to do with the theme. One analysis I've read suggested that Ophelia, by clinging to her books and fantasy world represents a need or appreciation for stories, which is "human," and that the dad is "inhuman" because he only cares about routines, procedures, and the passing of time. The creatures were great to look at, and there were many moments that I enjoyed, but I don't think I'll watch it again.
Visual feast for the eyes
If there is one thing I can guarantee with this review it's that you will not see another movie like Pan's Labyrinth the rest of the year. In English or in Spanish.

With its dark imagines, brutal violence and terrifying fantasy creatures, I challenge you to find a film on par with Guillermo del Toro's vision of a young girl in Spain circa 1944 who endures the growing pains of a new family while imagining a world where creatures that would give Stephen King nightmares surround her and coax her into various tasks of passage.

Pan's Labyrinth is a movie almost too complex to explain. There are two tributaries of plot. One involves the real world where Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) and her pregnant mother travel to their new home amidst the violence of the Post-war Fascist repression. While adapting to new father whose penchant for sadism is wiggle-in-your-theatre-seat cruel, young Ofelia takes comfort in her mother's arms. But when her mother has complications with her pregnancy, Ofelia quickly finds retreat with the unusual characters including nymphs and fairies that lead her on three tasks that suggest the offer of reclaiming a throne.

The second story surrounds this journey into fantasy and I have yet to find the words two hours after the screening to describe the various characters that include a huge toad with a secret key hidden inside its belly and a creature that eats young children and has eyes on the palm of its hands.

Creepy stuff. Think Big Fish is written by Clive Barker.

Writer and director Guillermo del Toro (The Devil's Backbone, Hellboy) spins a whimsical story that is as engrossing as it is repulsive. The war scenes are brutally realistic with bullets not being spared for the long suffering, and a torture scene that includes utensils marked for your father's toolbox gave me the heebie jeebies a la Hostel. Guillermo is able to walk a thin line with confidence and with this entry, he secures his spot as one of the most interesting directors working in the mainstream today.

Pan's Labyrinth received a 22 minute ovation when appearing at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006. I can't in good conscious share the same enthusiasm. But on the other hand I can't deny that this was an incredible spectacle that definitely deserves multiple viewings to fully appreciate the beauty amongst the violence and the creativity of the storytelling among the dark corners where creatures lurk and adventures await.
