” …the extra characters Selick has to work with, the extra room there may be for his deliciously unusual and comedian visible craft. That’s what we’re right here for, ain’t it? The director and his animation crew do predictably enjoyable work with nuns wanting like decayed minions, papier-mache-style ghosts, a cuddly however possessed teddy bear and sufficient clownish-looking undead to fill a circus.” 3/5, The Guardian
” …it hurts quite a bit that [Selick’s] newest movie – his first in 13 years – was disappointing. I imagine there’s a greater function beneath the shells of Wendell & Wild’s over-stuffed story as a result of loads of nice moments are scattered round its runtime. Nevertheless, the burden of the movie’s narrative is an excessive amount of for Selick’s visible panache to hold, failing to maintain its momentum going.” Loud and Clear
“Selick and his crew usually deal with their characters, inserting them in nondescript settings and letting us respect the artistry of the character design. Selick’s power has all the time been in that division—assume Jack Skellington or Coraline—and his creations listed here are amongst his finest. Actually, the one flaw of Wendell & Wild is that Selick doesn’t allow us to soak up sufficient of his sights and sounds…” RogerEbert.com
“Selick’s aptitude for phantasmagorical sights is on full show, although Wendell & Wild’s excessively CGI-enhanced look is a far cry from the grounded tactility of a lot of his prior work. The competing storylines and moods additionally add to the movie’s rising identification disaster—or perhaps it’s simply that all of it feels as if it’s been assembled from disparate elements.” Slant
“There’s an simple attract to Wendell & Wild although that isn’t new to Selick’s work. He has all the time maintained a illustration of the bizarre and the macabre. A filmmaker that imbues his work with the identical ardour for being your self because the viewers he cultivates and champions his movies, Selick continues to be one of the crucial endearing forces in animation.” Tilt
