Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Sky Captain is a gorgeous, funny, and welcome novelty.
The A.V. Club - Keith Phipps
As an imaginative visual experience, there's nothing like it. Today, at least.
Premiere - Peter Debruge
Conran's Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is a pastiche of everything from "King Kong" to "The Wizard of Oz," a movie that escalates to a breathless cliff-hanger every 20 minutes or so and reinvents itself with every reel.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
The film's save-the-world scenario may be the stuff of crusty cliff-hangers, its imagery may be borrowed, and its jaunty dialogue anything but deep, but there's something exhilarating going on here. It's darn sublime.
The Hollywood Reporter - Sheri Linden
Other than the actors, their costumes, and a few props, everything in Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is digital illusion, and the effects are often exhilarating.
