Otis Ferguson The New Republic [It's] a delight and at times will take your breath away, for the limits of the animated cartoon have been blown so wide open that some of the original wonder of pictures - wonder and terror too, as when that train roared up into the camera - is restored. Dec 26, 2023 Full Review THR Staff Hollywood Reporter Taken as a whole, the picture is a masterpiece which sets another milestone along the road of screen entertainment. Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) This 1940 Disney adaptation of Carlo Collodi's novel...combin[es] comedy, pathos and nightmare in a free, rapid, genuinely imaginative way. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Brendan Cassidy InSession Film Either Walt Disney wished upon a star to make such a gorgeous film, or he was just insane enough to work hard at it; I’m thinking it was both. Jun 18, 2024 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...it’s not difficult, ultimately, to see why Pinocchio has endured over the years. Rated: 3.5/4 Dec 2, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy One of the studio’s genuine masterpieces, Pinocchio is unique in the annals of Disney animation in that it’s the studio’s only toon movie in which evil is never punished. Rated: 4/4 Mar 21, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Aender S An excellent animated film. I don't even mind the elements missing from the original book and the stuff that's been added. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/24/24 Full Review Ryan B One of the best animated films of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/21/24 Full Review annette Z i sure love red lobster Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/07/24 Full Review Jorge R Better than the live action remake. Cute but horrifying at times. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/03/24 Full Review Ariel V One of my favorite Disney films back in the day. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/02/24 Full Review Tom F Seen through my 2024 eyes, it is less compelling than I expected. Still better than the live remake, though Guillermo Del Toro's version shows how exciting the premise can be. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Read all reviews
