This is a charming tale that will thrill kids of all ages, and the Avatar-inspired scenery and graphics will be fun for adults, too. The 3D effects are well integrated and contribute to the action. The story is typically sentimental, as one would expect for a kid's movie, but not excesively so. The one musical number seemed forced and out of place in this movie. And Beyonce, who performed the queen's voice, was out of her acting league and almost embarassing to listen to. But the kids will love it.

My daughters wanted to see this movie and we saw it in 3-D. The 3-D effect was minimal at best so don't pay extra for it unless you catch the matinee show. The story was okay and Beyonce's voice as the queen was not a good choice in my opinion. I like her but her voice just didn't work for me in that role.
Nevertheless, my daughters enjoyed the movie but I noticed they weren't talking about it that much after we left the cinema.
The animation was good except that the queen looked like a plastic doll. If you go out to see this movie you will see what I mean.
So with that said, I would not recommend that anyone pay box office prices to see this film. This film should have been released straight to DVD or Blu Ray film, because there isn't anything here to rave about. The story wasn't innovative, the jokes were few and the characters wasn't developed properly.
This is a kids movie and I'm sure they will enjoy it
On scale of 1 to 10 I give this film a 5

Took grandkids and found myself laughing. It was really a cute movie. As an old timer, I'm amazed at the quality of 3D. I remember 3D when it first came out and it was horrible. Didn't think I would enjoy this movie in 3D but boy I was impressed. It was nice not to have to worry about foul langage. It did have some cute and sweet interactions with the characters.

I thought this was a fairly good movie for children over the age of 6. My grandson, who is 10, really enjoyed the film. 3D was good but not great.

I dont know what the other reviewers were watching, but he fly through scenes are very awesome in 3D. Why see this if its not in 3D. I have seen lot of 3D animation movies and this one has fresh concepts and high realism using animation. The story is not a rehash, as far as I know, which is so common coming out of hollywood. Overall its very enjoyable due to these features.
