Critic Reviews for Babe: Pig in the City

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (19)

Carries its predecessor's torch into darker, quixotic territories, bursting at the seams with folkloric witticism and hellzapoppin' imagery.

Darker than the original, not for very young kids.

September 16, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's George Miller's masterpiece, maybe even the best commercial film of 1998.

Would anyone go for a sequel to The Wizard of Oz that catapulted Dorothy and Toto into the world of Once Were Warriors or Escape From New York?

The new saga basks in imaginative charm!

Not so good as the first film, Babe: Pig in the City, presents some dark scenes that gonna scare the lovers for the sweetness of the previous picture and could deviate the children of this sequence, but could too interest an audience that like of more dark material. Despite been a good film, Pig in the City, is not a recommendable movie.

A wonderful dark childrens fairy tale. This was obviously a huge art direction influence on the Harry Potter films.
