Quick Verdict – I’ve completed the Labyrinth


I’m 31 years old. So for people my age, 1980’s kid films are a big deal. This one however, has managed to pass me by till two weeks ago. I liked it, don’t get me wrong, but I can’t help but think it would have had a bigger impact on my life, had I watched it when I was a child.

Sarah wishes that her half-brother would disappear, and guess what, he does. He is taken by the Goblin King (played by David Bowie) to his castle and the only way Sarah can save him, is by successfully navigating the King’s labyrinth.

Jim Henson’s gang are at their usual best, with great muppets and the tunes are first rate. I had David Bowie’s Magic Dance in my head for days after. If you have a young child I can’t recommend this film enough. I’m just annoyed it took me 28 years to watch it.
