Isn't deep or complicated, but works as a fun, nostalgic trip...

A movie that seems to have been made by people who don't understand the history, true nature or appeal of their iconic characters.

Tom & Jerry is five to ten minutes of action... surrounded by an inordinate amount of unimaginative, unfunny human-based conflict.

Tom And Jerry can't even let the cat and mouse escape from such bogus, contemporary studio-film standards...

The film opens on three rapping pigeons... and somehow goes downhill from there.

Very young kids might find some enjoyment in the brightly hued, fast-paced mania of it all, but those with any real affection for the pair of violently opposed animals will leave unimpressed.

Tired plotting, thin characters and an absence of spark or wit.

Nothing will prepare you for the tone-deaf nature of this live-action abomination...

Taken on its merits, this is perfectly harmless entertainment, from which your children should return at least somewhat amused...

The human cast, led wonderfully by Moretz, do a really top-notch comic job, aided by some genuinely funny one-liners and a handful of excellent visual gags...

Despite the skill and fidelity of the artists... it all falls a bit flat...

Thanks to Moretz, Story and Costello, Tom and Jerry was not only tolerable, it had moments of invention, hilarity and heart.

No, Tom & Jerry won't be winning any Oscars... But it's good enough to go down easy.

A sad, desperate attempt to make Tom and Jerry the one thing they never were: cool.

Will fail equally for adults who grew up on Tom and Jerry, and their kids who have never heard of these characters.

The actors got cheques. The cat and mouse got to relive their glory days one last time, and no one called them Itchy or Scratchy, not once.

You know you're in for trouble right at the start, when the pigeons begin rapping.

If you're in a mood for this flavour of cartoon violence, you're better off hunting down the classic shorts or episodes of Tom and Jerry's past TV shows.
