Movie Reviews

Movie Mom - 9/10 by Nell Minow Visual panache is enhanced by delightful voice talent from a widely diverse cast in a film with action, humor, and heart.
NYC Movie Guru - 9/10 by Avi Offer An enormously entertaining film filled with plenty of delightful thrills, humor, wit, and pathos. Kids will love it. It's among the best animated films of 2017. - 8/10 by Christian Toto Funny characters. Gentle slapstick. A faith-friendly narrative that won't annoy non-believers. What's not to enjoy?
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) - 8/10 by Linda Cook A sweet and often (tastefully) funny story of The Nativity told from the perspective of the animals involved.
Baret News - 8/10 by Kam Williams The Nativity revisited as a kiddie cartoon adventure guaranteed to enthrall tykes of any race, color or creed.
Huffington Post - 7/10 by Jackie K. Cooper The Christmas Story told from a donkey's perspective makes for a fun filled, heart-warming animated movie. Surprisingly good.
National Post - 6/10 by Chris Knight Overall, The Star is content to deliver its news to the faithful. It's not out to change minds, although it does suggest that even a stubborn donkey can find a new purpose at Christmas.
Film Journal International - 6/10 by Doris Toumarkine [P]arents will appreciate the film's many strong points and spirit while getting immense pleasure from just watching their kids' pleasure.
Common Sense Media - 6/10 by Sandie Angulo Chen Sweet Nativity story told from animals' perspective.
Deseret News, Salt Lake City - 6/10 by Josh Terry The Star may not make your Best Christmas Movies list, but Reckart has turned an interesting idea into a sincere and curious film.
Newsday - 6/10 by Rafer Guzman All told, The Star should be a safe bet for families during the upcoming holiday season.
Variety - 6/10 by Peter Debruge As kid-friendly Christmas movies go, this one actually goes out of its way to remind what the holiday represents, which should please parents looking for something a little more sophisticated (but just barely) than the VeggieTales cartoons.
