      Dwight Brown DwightBrownInk.com Sometimes there’s too many cooks in the kitchen. Sometimes there are too many storylines in a movie. Same difference. Rated: 2/4 Nov 11, 2022 Full Review David Fear Rolling Stone This needs a lot more chaos energy to power it past the rough spots. None of this should detract from the movie’s good elements and better-angels best intentions. Oct 31, 2022 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) The story is a touch convoluted, but it’s a gleefully grim good time. Rated: 4/5 Oct 30, 2022 Full Review Damon Wise Deadline Hollywood Daily In 2009, it was considered almost shocking when Pixar’s Up addressed the subject of death... But while that door is now open, Henry Selick’s Wendell & Wild finds inventive ways to blow the hinges off. Sep 25, 2023 Full Review Nuha Hassan Nuha Hassan Selick manages to leave the audience with scares and spooky demons and hopefully, Wendell & Wild will be a memorable movie to watch during Halloween. Sep 8, 2023 Full Review Pramit Chatterjee Digital Mafia Talkies Everything from the character designs to the character animation, the production design, the visual effects, the texture of every single building, material, or cloth, the dynamic camerawork is so good that you must pause every frame and appreciate it.

      Clark C Fantastic visuals and beautiful animation but a terrible script. Not involving, not well conceived. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/23/22 Full Review Enchanted M So sorry to disrespect the people behind this movie but I must say that this is in no way a good movie, it's extremely boring and barely has a plot worth paying attention to with an ending that comes out of nowhere. DO NOT EXPECT ANYTHING LIKE HIS PREVIOUS WORK! This is not Coraline, James and the Giant Peach, or Nightmare Before Christmas. The only reason I gave it some stars is because easily this is one of the greatest stop motion I have seen in a movie that has no substance to care for Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/23/24 Full Review Lucrecia P La película tiene buena animación pero la protagonista es insoportable y los personajes son re planos lo único bueno son Wendell y Wild me asen reír es 6.5 de 10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review Jacob L not that good movie i can't even remember anything Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/24 Full Review Torin F WENDELL & WILD is a weird one. It's a little too dark for typical kids' fare (more grim than spooky), with an angry protagonist who does experience real growth, but is generally unlikeable for most of the movie. The stop-motion style is visually interesting, but lends the entire film a herky-jerky rhythm worsened by the characters' wooden expressions, making it hard to get into or care about what's going on (and there's a lot going on). I love Key & Peele, Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice, so you'd think Wendell & Wild would be a slam dunk. But it's a bit of a dud. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/19/23 Full Review Margaret C How did this movie get made. I'm still confused. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Read all reviews
