    A family film of limitless imagination and surprising joy.
  2. This sincere, delicate, and intrinsically religious comedy may also become that most unexpected of blessings - Danny Boyle's first family classic.
  3. It's vibrant and verdant and heartbreakingly inviting, begging you to escape into a lovely tale in which children, through a simple act of faith, find their own heaven on earth.
  4. The near-miracle worked by Mr. Boyle, whose exuberant style brings several saints to scruffy life, is a movie that's joyously funny and hugely inventive -- occasionally to the point of preciousness -- yet true to the spirit of the saintly little kid at its center.
  5. One of the more delightful and satisfying family movies.
  6. Leaves you feeling rich - and richly satisfied.
  7. The film is thriller, comedy and rite-of-passage story, but Boyle never loses sight of what's at its core.

    Millions may seem like an interesting movie, but it suffers tremendously from an awkward quirkiness and inconsistent filming that leave the movie feeling incoherent. Full Review »

    Amazing movie! Really really fun to watch. Also Very Imaginative and creative movie with a good moral to it. This movie was also religiously fascinating and the cinomtagraphy in it was great. Full Review »

    Touching fantasy with a flashy, surrealistic visual style. The film has humor, pathos, and moments of menace.
