Critic Reviews for Pinocchio
Taken as a whole, the picture is a masterpiece which sets another milestone along the road of screen entertainment.
This 1940 Disney adaptation of Carlo Collodi's novel...combin[es] comedy, pathos and nightmare in a free, rapid, genuinely imaginative way.
Walt Disney has waved his magic wand over Collodi's world-famous fairy story, "Pinocchio," and presto! he has changed it into the most enchanting film ever brought to the screen.
Although it may lack the heart-tugging appeal of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the consensus among animation fans is that 1940's Pinocchio remains the most perfect animated feature Walt Disney produced.
In spirit a classical European fairy tale, full of wonder and terror … a pinnacle of artistic achievement that, after Bambi, classic Disney would never even try to match again.
Audience Reviews for Pinocchio
Collodi's classic fairy tale is adapted into a spellbinding animation full of adventure and tension, notably scarier and more serious in tone than the usual Disney movies. A wonderful story that holds an important moral lesson for children about the dangers of the world.
Fantastical! Wonderful! Amazing! Mesmerizing! These words go above and beyond for this movie, and if I could say anymore, I would call it the best disney film of all time. There are a few films that I like to say I admire more, but I loved everything about "Pinocchio" and all the adventures that he goes on throughout the film. It's all about making your wishes come true by being a good person at heart, and it is one of the most influential films that I have ever seen! I could watch this film over and over again! My only complaint is that is can be a bit dark for children and there is some language and references that nudges at the PG rating, rather than having it's childish G. Overall, "Pinocchio" is a masterpiece of an animate film!
Pinocchio is a great film, but compared to other Disney classics, I never really re watched this one. I on the other hand really loved the film when I saw it when I was young. This film is a must see for everyone who loves a good animated film. The film, like with every other Disney film has great art, animation and a talented voice cast. Brilliantly drawn, Pinocchio will bring out the child in every viewer and is a must see for anyone who enjoys a touching story. I loved this one growing up, but unlike other Disney classics, I never really re watched this, but I can say without a doubt that this is a near flawless film, another great one for Disney and a definite must see for the entire family. Children will love this film one, and this is a film that adults will enjoy as well. That's the beauty part about Disney films, their ability to capture the imagination of people no matter what age you are. Pinocchio is a stunning film, one that remains a Disney classic along with Snow White, Bambi and others in the company's long standing history. A very enjoyable film, Pinocchio is a memorable film that will appeal to anyone looking for a great animated film. An enjoyable ride from beginning to end, this is among Disney's very best. Brilliantly drawn, and told, Pinocchio is a terrific film that has a great story, one that will appeal to every viewer.
