"Like Dahl’s book, everything in this film, from tenderness to terror, is so exuberant." 
★★★★★ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

"I'm sticking my neck out, but I reckon it would even have delighted the notoriously dyspeptic, hard-to-please Dahl himself."
★★★★★ Brian Viner, Daily Mail

"Apart from the long-winded title there is nothing to criticise in what is the best family movie since Paddington 2."
★★★★★ Grant Rollings, The Sun

"Matilda is a tangy bit of entertainment, served up with gusto." 
★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"The best moments are extraordinary and Thompson’s Trunchbull will haunt my dreams, quite possibly for ever." 
★★★★ Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

"A frothy, whimsical delight that encompasses every expectation we were bound to have already placed on it. It’s intrinsically British enough that I half expect it to be soon absorbed into the Paddington cinematic universe." 
★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, Independant
