Narrated with a rhythm that prevents that one can get bored, the moral of 'The Pagemaster', which invokes the power of books and reading. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Mediocre, really, this mixture of real actors and animation. Full Review
Time Out
Jun 24, 2006
Rating: 2/5 -- A pallid film framed at the start and finish by live action and mostly composed of cheap-looking animation.
New York Times
May 20, 2003
Rating: 3/4 -- This clever, often engaging, and always fast-paced motion picture uses the visual medium to encourage its viewers to reach out with their imagination. Full Review
ReelViews
Jan 1, 2000
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The film rests on its initial ingenuity and fails to develop the concept in interesting or surprising ways. Full Review
TV Guide
Dec 4, 2007
Built on a wispy premise better suited to the realm of TV, The Pagemaster plays like a slickly produced afternoon special.
Variety
Dec 4, 2007
Rating: 1/4 -- The Pagemaster is the kind of movie first-grade teachers would have popped into the VCR in the 1990s to kill time on a rainy afternoon. Full Review

Product Description:

A paranoid young boy is swept into the animated worlds of fantasy, horror and adventure when he trapped inside a public library.

Product Description:

Enter a magical world of adventure and fantasy! When Young Richard Tyler (Macaulay Culkin) takes shelter from a storm in an empty library, he is suddenly transported into the wondrous world of The Pagemaster'! Face-to-face with some of the world's most fearsome literary legends – mighty Moby Dick, treacherous Treasure Island pirates and even a fierce fire-breathing dragon – Richard must conquer his greatest fears, or he'll never get back home! Co-starring Christopher Lloyd, and featuring the voices of Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Stewart and Leonard Nimoy, this live-action/animated adventure provides inspiration to the imagination and entertainment for the whole family!

Plot Synopsis:

To escape a raging thunderstorm, young Richard takes refuge in a library where he meets Mr. Dewey, a strange librarian. Dewey turns out to be The Pagemaster, a wizard who transports Richard into a colorful cartoon world. There, Richard is guided by three large walking, talking books named Adventure, Fantasy, and Horror, who send the boy on journeys with classic literary characters, such as Long John Silver, Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, and Captain Ahab. But despite the fun Richard is having in this fantasy world, he must also find the "Exit" sign -- his only means of escaping back to the real world.
