Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great...
For my will is as strong as yours, my kingdom as great... Damn.

By today's standards "Labyrinth" may look dated and cheap but there's something about it that makes it special.
David Bowie makes it a stand alone movie in the weird ranking. The man is crazy but his performance is excellent!
Jennifer Connely (being 16 at the time) delivers a solid and tender performance. She was very, very cute and her performance totally gained the audience's love.
The tale is fantastic and keeps you interested from the beginning to the end. The musical moments are also great! The f/x were great for it's time and I wonder how they came out with the idea for creating such original characters.
The thing that I liked the most about the movie is it's art direction. The world that is created is taken directly from everyone's fantasy world idea. Colorful and dark at the same time.
Better than the "Neverending Story" movies, "Labyrinth" should be watched for lovers of sci-fi.
