- Critics' reviews
"Burton's made a film that's respectful to the original, and respectable in itself, but that's not enough. Ten years from now, it will be the 1968 version that people are still renting"
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
"With the exception of a battle scene (...) the film is monumentally silly"
Peter Travers: Rolling Stone
"Largely listless and witless, this extensive reworking of the 1968 sci-fi favorite simply isn't very exciting or imaginative"
Todd McCarthy: Variety
