review by
Mike Haberfelner

Young Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) is fed up with her life, her stepmother (Shelley Thompson) doesn't respect her one bit, her dad (Christopher Malcolm) fails to see she's troubled, and her constantly crying baby brother Toby (Toby Fround) is driving her to despair, especially since she has to babysit him all the time (in her mind at least) - so she curses Toby and wishes the Goblin King Jareth (David Bowie) would take him ... but of course she doesn't think the Goblin King is real, and when she learns he is, he has already taken Toby ... but he's giving her 13 hours to get through the maze around his palace and reclaim the boy - and she does her best to do so, but not only is the maze a pretty big maze, it's also populated by weird creatures, and not all of them friendly, and Jareth does his best to trick her time and again. But Sarah does find quite a few friends along the way, like simpleton goblin Hoggle (Shari Weiser, Brian Henson), who's in Jareth's pay but is eventually won over to her side, monster Ludo (Ron Mueck, Rob Mills), knightly fox Sir Didymus (Dave Goelz, David Alan Barclay, David Shaughnessy) and his dog Ambrosius, and of course eventually everything ends happily ...


Labyrinth is, among all other things, great fun, and that's due to three components: Jim Henson's creatures are just awesome, Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie are great enough actors to stand their own against Henson's awesome creatures (which is quite a feat), and the script is just hilarious and really breaths some Monty Python air thanks to writer Terry Jones. And there's so much more to love about the film, really, like its awesome set designs, great practical effects, smooth directorial efforts, songs by David Bowie, and so on and so forth. In a way it's just an awesome movie for the whole family ... which you'll probably enjoy more and more the older you get. Absolutely brilliant!
