That's way the btseest answer so far!
We don't see very many animated features like this anymore. It truly is a dying breed of art, and the medium echoes the focus of the plot. The story is so simple, yet incredibly entertaining. Don't miss it.
I thought this movie was well put together and kept my attention till the end
Beautiful animation and sparse dialogue makes The Illusionist a worthy entry into the Oscar fold. It wasnt going to win, but it's use of colour, sound, and the characters themselves are put together in a unique package with a clear love for Scotland. Quite sad and melancholy, but worth the watch.
A bit melancholy, visually beautiful, sweet story.
boring to the max!
If Toy Story 3 hadn't come out this year, The Illusionist would have won the Oscar® for best animated film in a walk. It's a poignant, nuanced film that may be too gentle and measured in its pacing to entertain younger viewers, but holds a wealth of wonderfulness for the more mature audience. The Illusionist is a brilliant, brilliant film.
Brilliant and touching film, offering a true feeling of old Edinburgh and a nostalgic and bittersweet look at innocent relationships.
awesome show everyone should see it
Compelling story & beautiful animation make for an awesome movie.
I really enjoyed watching this movie, and woul definately recommend it to friends and family
