“Stardust” is about a boy who falls in love with a rich, spoiled brat girl. While they were out one night, they both saw a falling star. The boy promised he would bring the fallen star for the girl if in return she would marry him. That is where the fun begins.
Being a fantasy fan, I loved the movie from beginning to end. It also has the elements I’m looking for in a movie. If you’re looking for a good story, sword fights, romance, treachery, comedy, revenge, and fantasy; you’ll definitely find it in the film. Fortunately, Neil Gaiman’s humor was not absent in it.
The story flow was superb. It kept me from sleep during the film. I like to compare it to a vise; it grips you tighter and tighter and will only loosen when the film is done. I also like to add, that, Stardust is reminiscent of the Rob Reiner film, “The Princess Bride”, which is as far as I know also based on a book.
“Stardust” only proves that a director can practice his/her artistic license without gaining the disapproval of some other artist’s fans by destroying the latter’s work. “Stardust” will definitely be a classic film.
