Celebrated sci-fi writer Neil Gaiman, who created the Sandman series, scripted this visually adventurous fantasy. Helena (Stephanie Leonidas) is a 15-year-old girl who has spent nearly her entire life on the road, traveling with her parents Joanne and Morris (Gina McKee and Rob Brydon), who make a living as circus performers. One night, Helena wishes for a quieter and more stable life, only to panic when her mother falls seriously ill, ending up in the hospital. Afraid she's caused her mother's illness, Helena slips into an alternate reality known as the Dark Lands, where nearly everything behaves differently and all is ruled by the Queen of Light and the Prime Minister (also played by McKee and Brydon). As it happens, the Queen of Shadows' daughter, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Helena, has gone missing; the Queen of Light has fallen unconscious as a result; and both queens' minders are looking for the child. As Helena struggles to make her way back to her own world to help her own mother, she discovers the Queen of Shadows' daughter has taken her place. Helena is aided in her journey by a gifted juggler named Valentine (Jason Barry), and together they seek to access a magic charm which will return everyone to the land where they belong. MirrorMask was produced by the Jim Henson Company, with most of the sets and many of the characters created using digital-effects technology.

from the trailer it looked interesting and i instantly remembered labyrinth. though you shouldn't judge a movie based on the trailer, the movie was okay but the graphics looked interesting, and the story seemed a bit off track at times. overall it was alright but not that bad.

THis was a beautiful movie, but the plot seemed to have so much in common with all of Gaiman's plots combined with that of Labrynth. The visuals were spectacular, though.

Despite previous reviews, this movie was very good. It was imaginative and unique. Some might say it is "tedious" with "no emotion" , but I believe this movie offered an appealing plot, a stimulating score, and captavating cinematography for both the child and adult alike.

I read the synopsis and was pleasantly surprised at how good the movie turned out to be. Quite the fantasy world. She has an imagination many would kill for. I loved it and I want the movie.

How a film with such extravagant Imagery can be so incredibly boring is a lesson for any student of film. Wonder after wonder floats across the screen without reason in a meaningless display so tedious it is literally astounding! How can so many wonders be so dull? The plot is idiotic, the world has no rules, the characters act like deranged automatons, the performances are stilted, the direction is abysmal and it seems to have been written by someone who has never experienced the simplest of human emotions, if that is possible. The film even violates the rules it has set up. Mirrormask is a literal guide of what not to do when writing or directing a film. Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.

Although this movie may lack the nostalgia that will forever remain with the other Henson company movies, it still is quite captivating. The story of a young frustrated girl's journey through some very strange and beautiful places is magical enough to transport you along with her. Dont ever guess what may happen next half the fun lies in the mystery.

The story and plot line lack a little, but the amazing, awe filled computer graphics made it worth it. Even if you don't like the plot, watch it just for the pictures. I loved the half bird/ half gorilla creatures.

If you like the work of Jim Henson you will love this movie. It's beautiful and intriguing and has a beautiful soundtrack.

This movie has an excellent story line with multiple levels of interpretation. It flows well and is filled with incredible effects and artistic design.

This movie is amazing! The many artists who designed the graphics were all personally selected by the directer and it shows. Mirrormask is often compared to "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Wizard of Oz", but "Mirrormask" is more than capable to holding its own.

this is an insanely beautiful and brilliant movie. I watched it and got caught up in the art in the movie, so much that i almost stopped paying attention to what was going on. I recommend it for anyone who loves movies that are pretty to watch.
