Juggling multiple genres and tones occasionally causes Stardust to feel uneven (especially during the first half of the movie), but overall it has enough visual razzle-dazzle, good humour (I laughed out loud a few times for sure), and well-drawn performances (especially from Claire Danes who is PERFECTLY cast) to create a lively, fantastical experience. It wouldn't be fair to compare this to Lord of the Rings since it's not a multi-film epic. It's much simplier and yet VERY ambitious. It's basically a fairy-tale love story and is wonderful on that level. Don't worry that the first half of the movie seems really average, the movie gets WAY better in the second half when Claire Danes' character really comes to shine (both literally and figuratively)
