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
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
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
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The film rests on its initial ingenuity and fails to develop the concept in interesting or surprising ways. Full Review
Built on a wispy premise better suited to the realm of TV, The Pagemaster plays like a slickly produced afternoon special.
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
A paranoid young boy is swept into the animated worlds of fantasy, horror and adventure when he trapped inside a public library. Guided by three books, he battles his way to the exit and conquers his fears along the way. Features the voices of Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Stewart, Leonard Nimoy and more.
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!
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.
