Dir: Matthew Vaughn. US-UK. 2007. 125mins.A fairy tale based on Neil Gaiman's four-part DC Comics book from 1997, Stardust is an ambitious high-concept adventure which is one of the few non-sequels, non-toy or non-TV adaptations to arrive in theatres this summer. But although entertaining, ribald and clever, it might fall through the cracks when it comes to capturing a broad blockbuster audience a la Simpsons or Transformers.
