It can't be worse than the Disney remake, and it will likely be a lot better. The Disney remake missed the point of the original entirely. Pinocchio wasn't even bad in that film. He was just naive. It felt like Robert Zemeckis turned him into Forrest Gump.

It's just visually more mystical and presents such a profound sense of wonder. I really dug it the most.

Guillermo specializes at that. His films are always beautiful and wondrous.

It felt like the original classic story of Pinocchio, but with Pan's Labyrinth themes. It felt like Guillermo was respecting the actual story more so than anyone else has done. You could see the love and passion in it.

I think it's Guillermo's most watchable movie. I didn't feel exhausted midway through the movie. I love all his work but sometimes I wish he had a bad editor or script writer

I thought it got exhausting in the last half hour, felt a lot like the coda to A.I.. Guillermo is terrible at pacing.

He is very bad at pacing. I was drunk at that point. Maybe your right.
