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"
  • "With the exception of a battle scene (...) the film is monumentally silly"
  • "Largely listless and witless, this extensive reworking of the 1968 sci-fi favorite simply isn't very exciting or imaginative"
