Bursting at the seams with special effects, big names (Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Peter O'Toole, Ricky Gervais) and an epic storyline about witches, princes and pirates, Matthew Vaughn's fantasy adventure seems to have everything going for it. But maybe that's the problem. There are so many ingredients thrown in that there's no room left for the enchanting, magical atmosphere of Neil Gaiman's source novel. And without that magical atmosphere, we aren't seeing a wondrous fairy tale; we're seeing famous people in fancy dress wandering around a forest.
