Hugh Jackman did a good job here, more impressive the anything else he's done before. It's a pity that his character goes too far into unconvincing territory where its obsession leads it to do something as stupid as de-activating the helpful robots. But even more interesting is the title character: it's humorous, enchanting, and also well-animated (invisible visual effects). None of the characters are given any depth. Regardless, the movie is captivating, and has a great ending, fairy tale as it is.
